Paper Issues = Smashin' Good Time


Hello and Welcome to the Paper Issues **Smash** Blog Hop!!!

You should have arrived here from the oh-so-fabulous Lizzie's blog:


If not, you'll want to start at the Paper Issues blog so that you don't miss out on any of the fun!

First of all, one person that links up between today and April 28th can win this FABulous prize:


See the Paper Issues blog for all the deets about the prize.

It includes that sweet smash mini book...which I used for my project today:


I haven't altered the cover yet....so I worked on page 1....so much pressure....the first page.   So I decided to do it about my Pinterest board, "my crafty space"...these are NOT actual pics of my room but what I used as inspiration to have as a room....

See that polka tab?


I do have the actual smash tape but instead of actually using the tape...I used the smidge off of the packaging:


I also used some Crate Story Teller paper...stitched it with pink thread {love the contrast} and some fun Dear Lizzy goodness.  I even managed to use yet another feltie heart that I had floating around AND check it out...hand written 'journaling'!

My next page that I'll show you might just be peeks of my crafting room based on my pinterest board....

So, make sure you check out the magnificent Paper Issues store....it's chock full of goodness!  Any purchase you make is instantly 20% off when you use code Amy12...that is today and anyday:)



Now hippety hop over the amazing Holly's blog:

  17. Love how you have your book started. Using the packaging tab from the washi tape is very clever. I have two smash books and have not started either of them. Shame on me. patnbobcuddy at gmail dot com
