Smash Your Stash Challenge 1

Sunday, February 24, 2013

I just joined a group called 'Smash Your Stash' on Facebook and am going to try to do as many challenges as possible. I'm using the red SMASHbook I got in a SMASH bundle at Michael's a few months ago. I tend to always have a theme when I do my SMASHbooks. I'm hoping these challenges will push me to be a little more random. My pages are still going to be scrapbook-y though. That's just my style :)

The first challenges was to use your oldest piece of patterned scrapbook paper and some letter or label stickers. I used a paper called "Wally Moose Tracks" from Gin-X's 'Take a Vacation'. It's not the first piece of paper I ever bought, but it's one of the oldest I still have. I just cut out lots of the circles from the paper and scattered them around the pages. I used some orange October Afternoon Mini Market stickers.

I thought 'take a vacation' was a great theme for me to use, so I chose a picture from our one-year anniversary trip to Jamaica last year. Joe and I love to travel and explore new places together. I don't think we'll ever run out of places to go.

I used a bunch of little embellishments from K&Co, an Amy Tan sticker, and a few random travel-related things I had laying around.

I am going to use my SMASH date stamper in this book.

 I think the international clocks are cute. The stars add a bit of sparkle to the page.
