Paper Issues - SMASH!

April 15, 2012

Super excited for today's share! At Paper Issues, we are having a blog hop to kick off the new theme, which is SMASH!

I made my first SMASH book last summer, documenting all our fun adventures and memories and I really enjoyed the sarcastic pages and great designs included in the book. But I'm going to admit I was a little afraid of it. Afraid of doodling, misting, using too much product in it....

SMASHbook for Summer 2011

But when I decided to participate in the April Photo-a-Day Challenge, I thought the SMASH mini book would be a perfect size to put the project all together in.


The SMASHbook mini is by far my favorite size, it's about 5x7,
 so it's great for instragram photos and even 4x6.
One of the best part of SMASH books, is the stash buster factor. Let me explain. Because there really are no rules in the SMASH book, you can use this book, to use up random packages of thickers, or those 2 or 3 labels you have left on a sheet, even cardstock shapes that you really have no other use for...

Here are a few of my pages, although this book is incomplete as the monthly challenge isn't over :)



Now, here comes the fun part. Paper Issues is giving away this awesome prize pack!

I had never heard of Smash before until I stumbled across your blog. You have me hooked! What a wonderful product and a great idea! I've entered all three entries (I'm not really sure if I should tell you this in separate posts or how your giveaways work - I'm still quiet new to the blogging community!) and I've also followed your blog and here's my comment in hopes of getting entered for the Smash tapes!

I can't wait to see what other projects you have to share.

You guys are totally getting me excited about Smashing, thanks. I'm now a follower. I've also shared this blog hop on my website - http://emily.kincke.com/contests

You would think that as a photographer I would have done a photo-a-day project. Now that I see your Smash book, I'm intrigued. Thanks again!
