journal card & a bit of glue & some paper ruffles to make a pretty little framed journaling spot.
STICKLES. I LOVE stickles. Like, seriously. Simply because, while I love glitter, I'm not a fan of how messy it is & how hard it seems to use... at least for me. But this stuff has the glitter right in the glue, so it doesn't get anywhere I don't put it. The dry time is a bit longer than I'd like, but as long as you don't close the page for a while, you're good!
& for the bottom part of the page, I did this little drawing a while back of this sweet girl, & had no idea what I was going to do with her. She's finally found a home in my Smashbook, popped up to give the page a little dimension.
YOU GUYS. SPARKLE MOD PODGE. Between this & stickles... so happy! Though, I will say, the sparkle ModPodge smells realllly bad. But it adds a nice touch to the page.
And while I know many of you have wondered about the lack of actual photos in my pages, this really is more of my "inspiration" smashbook vs. my memories scrapbook. Though, on this page, I hid a photo of me & mom under the envelope I taped in to be a flap & pocket :D
& BOOM we're done with this page. What do you think?
Now, while I know this is a really long post already, I do have some exciting news I'd like to share... I'm starting a Smash Up with the sweet Miss Keely!
Now I'm sure you're wondering what that entails exactly.... Each week, she & I will be sharing out smashbook/paper playing adventures with you & we'd like you to join in! There will be a weekly prompt for those who need it, and then you'll just make your page, document it & share it with us! Now, it doesn't have to JUST be a smashbook page. Any kind of paper play is welcome here! Smash, srap, anything you can do to play with paper & have fun!
