Smash Book - The Good Stuff


I couldn't help it. I had to take time out of making homemade gifts and take some me time. SMASHing is relaxing. There are no rules - just fun.

I love using inspirational magazine cut outs to start my pages like these from this month's Anthropologie catalogue.

I leave my journal cards empty until I am ready to journal. Then, I keep my pen and SMASH in my purse or close by so that I can jot things down.

What I love the most about SMASHing and Helmar is that I don't have to worry about how many layers I am going to add to the page. Helmar gives me the freedom to create how I love - one layer at a time.

As I layer I use different Helmar products to help me along. I always start with the Quickfix Adhesive Runner. It's fast and very sticky! It is the perfect first layer to make sure the rest of the page stays put!
I then go between Liquid Scrap Dots, 450 Quick Dry, and different sizes of Zapdots depending on what I need for my lift.

The most important thing to remember when relaxing is to use your stash and just have fun gluing it on!

Wanna be a fly on my wall while I scrap? Watch the video below of how I put these pages together (sped up for viewer's enjoyment).



Create Well: Getting caught up in all the activities of the holidays can wear you down. Remember to take a time out for you, so that you don't end up forgetting about the real reason why you celebrate in the first place.

  1. Very cool! I just use a notebook instead of a smashbook, but I like to use magazine cutouts too! Sometimes you can find really cool quotes and stuff.
