I just got back from a month long trip with my kiddos for a family reunion and have really enjoyed seeing all sorts of wonderful things across the Midwest. This smash book may turn into my scrapbook for the trip, but I may have to go digital after all and do it with MDS!
So, the stickers are awesome, but I saved most of them for the inside pages. I can write and stick on photos as I go because there is an awesome pocket right inside the cover which will store my stickers. The washi tape is so much fun to work with!! I love that the interior pages are dsp which coordinates the whole book! I also love the larger spine, as I could see this book getting huge!
I don't have my hexagon punch yet, comes this week, so I had to make do with cutting banner ends! I didn't stamp much on the cover, just sponged the edges a bit to bring out the texture of the card stock.
I recycled the original tag from this book, I just loved it! The pool party and calypso coral combo is just wonderful.
After I put together the cover, I threw together two thank you cards using my Oh Hello set, the hexagon embossing folder, and scraps of Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Calypso Coral, and Basic Gray . I stayed with friends on my trip, so I have lots of cards to send out! I am really pleased with both cards and it felt do good to be crafting again instead of painting my house!
