Where do I begin? I love Smash books so much!!!! My life has been such a whirlwind this last year! These smash-books have been amazing. I just made two pockets the first month and shoved all kinds of stuff in them. I put my calendar and things-to-do list, my grocery list, notes from my kids, tags from things I loved, tickets, receipts and a score card from when my mom and I played yahtzee. I didn't do much art, I didn't have time for journaling...nevertheless, it was a giant slice of life. I just stuffed stuff in. Sometimes I taped in pictures and glue sticked my lists to the other side and layered the pictures to fit them in. For variety, I made a theme and cut out patterned paper to match and stuck lists and pictures on the opposite sides of them, For February I just made 2 big pockets and stuffed our families home made valentines in there. This last page my daughter did a drawing and I continued to stuff things in on the other side, I want to get wallet size photos and put them in on the page with the drawing. May was so busy I didn't even think about this book. But I saves all kinds of nifty stuff in a zip lock bag and I will stuff it in this month. I can't wait. I also got a large sized Smash Book for the summer. I get all tingly thinking about the possibilities!
