Hi there, today I would like to show you a SMASH book I decorated for dear Debbie.
She asked me if I could make her something to give for a raffle at her local school.


After we talked about different things we thought a SMASH book would be something nice and modern which appeals not only for young girls but also for adults. The length of the book is 11.5 inches… really long in scale for the regular sized rubberstamps I went with one of Krista's digital stamps which allowed me to print my favorite out in the size I needed it to be.
The final size is 6.5 inches for “Copica” (I liked 7 inches as well).

To cover the book I used papers of Angie’s new paper line “Fruit Basket”. They coordinate so well with each other. The purple Design Paper is one side and than on the opposite side is the red/white polka dot side. The green patterned paper was added from a second sheet.


Here are the supplies used in details:
Image: digital print by Krista Smith Saturated Canary “Copica
Background stamp: Magnolia Chocolate
Papers: Little Darlings Rubberstamps “Fruit Basket
Dies: Memory Box
Embellishments: Recollections, Alphabet stickers, Stickles, square paper doily, key charm, bakers twine, gingham, ribbons in red and purple, Making Memories SMASH book with red cloth binding

Whoever got this would be very happy, this is beautiful, i love that the smash book has been decorated, rather than leaving the original pattern, so sweet.

Some people in life always hold more importance than anything else, and you need something special to greet their presence in life. Flowers are the ideal ones to do that, just like you get here in
