Another Smash Book

Ok, now I think I might be addicted to this idea.  I raided my stash, looking to make a mini smash book that I could stick in my purse and carry around.  I was thinking this one would be more journal-like and I would write stuff in it, stick in notes, lists, etc.  At the end of the post I have links to the sites where I found the printables I used.  I included a lot of pictures with this one...let me know what you think.

 The book is roughly 6 1/2" tall by 4 1/2" wide, not including the rings.
 The covers are coin envelopes with cardstock in them for reinforcement.  I included 50 pages by the time I was done!
 Tags, printables, envelopes, OH MY!
 Some of the stuff was in my stash, I have no idea where they came from.  I just added stuff in.
 I added envelopes, and even turned a security envelope inside-out for another page/pocket.
 I found a stash of white chipboard that comes from packaging at my work and ran it through my Cuttlebug to create this page.  I used some 7 Gypsy stuff too.
 Library pocket and card...index cards...
 Journaling cards...
 I put tabs on file folder pieces...
 Ephemera from my stash...Making Memories, K and Company...others that I don't know where they came from!
 Even a business reply postcard with a journaling spot sticker.
 Index cards from photo boxes...
 The tomato soup cardstock is from a can opener that I bought a long time ago, but saved the packaging cuz it was soooooooo cute!
 Coffee sleeve...postcard...
 Another inside-out envelope.  These envelopes I had saved from return envelopes from bills.
 Paper bag, chipboard from my stash.
I covered the back of that chipboard with leftover paper I had.  I made a mini file folder from a piece of file folder.

Here are the links to the awesome sites where I found printables used in this book:

Stay Crafty!


  1. I love this! I especially loved that Cambell's soup packaging you saved? How old is it? They don't seem to make cute packaging anymore! Thanks for the links also

  2. AWESOME! Your smash book is inspiring! :-)
