Slab Book

You may have heard of Smash Books, released at CHA in January. They are kind of a "junk drawer" journal by K & Company designed to hold ideas, pictures, memorabilia, -- all the stuff that goes in a junk drawer. (Here is a cute, short video all about them.)

I'd heard of them but didn't know much about them, when I saw a video on Journal Artista about her trash books and stash books. These are journals she makes out of papers she would otherwise think of as "trash", and scrapbook papers she has in her "stash". Hmmm. I've done trash books (Papers of My Life), and I certainly have a small stash of scrapbook papers. It occurred to me that some of them were purchased in "slabs", so all the papers are nicely coordinated. The one I used is a Creating Keepsakes slab from Provocraft that I bought at Michaels.

I created a cover and put it all together with my Bind-it-All.

This will be a fun journal to work in. It is 6" x 6"
