Hi Everyone! :)
This is my second post today.
I saw the Smash Books that K&Co. recently came out with and of course they are really hard to come by, so I thought I would make my own.
I bought a bunch of notebooks/journals during the after Christmas Sale at Barnes & Nobles for $1-$3.
Here is one I altered for this project and also for the Queen of My Craftroom Design Team Project.
I took the spiral binding off and measured everything, covered my front and back. Made divider pages out of cereal box chipboard and put pockets and divider tabs on them.
I used all of my favorite patterned papers and colors with the exception of purple! ;)
Then I used  my Crop-a-dile and made holes for the spiral ring.
I glued everything with my ATG and Tombow Multi adhesive.
You can do this with a Cinch or Bind it all but I dont have one.
I love how it turned out!

My *SMASH* Book!! :)

I used several different Cartridges, Wall Decor & More, Lovely Floral, Lacy Labels.
The papers were all from my stash and for the ones I remember they were American Crafts Everyday, Stampin Up Designer packs, Stampin Up Pretty In Pink, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette.

I love this!! You did a fantastic job and I'm impressed that you re-bound it using your cropadile! I am itching to do something like this for Disney next month - hopefully I'll have time!
