I am sorry to be missing for so long, but I was off for a much needed vacation. I went to Uzbekistan and had the most magical time there travelling the silk route. I will post about the trip shortly with lots and lots of pictures but for now…
Just wanted to let you know that my book about smash books and scrapbooking in an eco friendly way and on a budget is FREE today

Do let me know what you think of the book and if you have tried something similar in the past. Would love to hear from you.
“Learn all about Smash Books! What they are, where to buy them, how to smash and how to make your own upcycled version of a smash book! We even go over techniques for making embellishments from soda cans, packaging plastic and much more.
So what exactly is a Smash Book?
Smash Books are pre-bound scrapbooks, but instead of plain pages, which can be hard and daunting to fill, they have patterned papers and different papers with sayings on them. The books are made from good quality card stock and can take a lot of memorabilia glued, taped or stapled to the pages.
The entire process of just adding pictures and memorabilia to the pages without bothering about the perfect layout is what is called ‘smashing.’ This makes these new smash books fun and easy to work with. The pages are beautifully coordinated and put together with an occasional ‘surprise’ page with a saying or picture that you would not expect. The books are coordinated with a lot of extras that you can buy as well, like pockets, stickers, and tabs.
Learn how to make your own upcylced version of this fun scrapbook! Use materials lying around the house. Have fun and UPCYCLE!”
