My Pre-Smashbook...

Have you seen the promo video for the new Smashbooks? I saw this and got really excited. Check it out...



But they don't come out until April! Then I saw this post at Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's blog, and got inspired to make this...
I just decorated the cover of a composition book, but I call it my "Pre-Smashbook," cuz I'm going to use it as such until I can get ahold of the real deal in April. I used my "Kaleidescope" kit from Scarlet Lime, plus some happy tape and my little bird stamp. I will share more of the insides on Thursday, with my "Art Journal Every Day" check-in post.

I hope your weekend is going well. There is a snowstorm just starting here, so the cats and I are hunkered down in the scraproom for the day...
P.S. I just got that tape dispenser with all the colorful masking tape from CSN this week, and I love it! I'd been wanting it for a long time, and finally broke down and ordered it. More info on it here in case you are interested.

Thanks for visiting! See you soon!

Hi Michelle! I love your pre-smash book and I saw the video last week of the smash-journals... but aren't we making those kind of journals ourselves already? At least YOU and I do, aren't we? Hope your weekend went along fine.
