Journaling: Smash Book Progress

Since we thought my cousin, K, was coming down today, I didn't get on the PC like I normally would. Turned out she didn't show up after all (though she will be here tomorrow). Anyway, I decided to work on my Smash books. Side note: I don't know whether it's Smashbook or Smash Book - so bothersome.

Once I got started I really got into it! Here's my Washington pages, which as you can see, I've only just begun on. That's my own photo of Mt. Rainier, btw. *g* Got to use some of my newest papers, which was exciting. Note the list of places I want to go to, because I've never driven to those places myself - been many years since I've been to any of them. But this is my little "Driving around WA Bucket List". :P

I didn't stop there...and the only reason why I didn't do more on the WA pages is because I need more photos! :P
Next I worked on my Quotes/Inspiration pages. This idea came together really fast. Even got to use my new circle punch! :D Those butterflies are stickers, btw. Not sure that these are completely done, but they're close. I might squeeze some things in on the left page. Just haven't figured out what yet.

Oh! For those of you who also bought Smash Books and maybe haven't dived into them yet, I've got a heads-up: don't trust the glue stick on the pen that comes with the book. The first thing I did was work on a page of myself (which I won't show until it's done - sorry!) and I used the glue stick. Well, the next day the pictures I'd glued down were already coming undone on the corners. It was pretty bad. So do yourself a favor and buy a separate glue stick or some other kind of glue/adhesive. I actually use a mix of items. I have Avery glue sticks, Tombow MONO Adhesive Tape Runner (which I have a ton of refills for from my card-making days), and Elmer's CraftBond Flexible Dual Tip Glue Pen.

Maybe it was just THAT glue stick on THAT pen...I don't know. Maybe I didn't use enough? All I know is that I don't really trust it and since I've got other options, I'm happy to use them. The pen that comes with the Smash Book, however, is great. No problem on that end. ;)

Happy journalling/crafting! :D
