It's SMASH* time at The Stamp Spot!

Hi Everyone

**If you are looking for the Aussie Girls SMASH* blog hop with giveaways then please scroll down**

Wowee, how lucky am I. I've currently got a gig over at The Stamp Spot Blog showcasing SMASH*ing. Got to be happy with that!!

Some of you may be asking: What is SMASH*?

SMASH* is a brand designed by K&Company and has a range of gorgeous folios/journals (each with different themes and patterned pages) and fun accessories like washi, pockets, note pads, tabs and stickies. The Stamp Spot online store has a fabulous range and if you are anything like me you will need it all!!

SMASH*ing can be anything you like - there are no rules. For me, SMASH*ing is a bit like an art journal and a bit like scrapbooking (depending on my mood). Many people refer to it as SMASH*booking! It is much more informal than scrapbooking and I find it much quicker which is one of the reasons I like it.

The page I'd like to show you today is done in my SMASH* mini and is titled "All about Me". I've just started my mini which is going to be used for a 30 day SMASH* challenge on Facebook- a page a day of what I'm doing, thinking, love etc. How fun is that!

You can see that my style is more scrapbook like and I love to use embellishments. On most of my pages I seem to use paper doilies, flat backed buttons, tags, bags, wood veneers, and of course photos!! The mini folio, black dots tape, swatch tape, top 10 pad, and the flag clips I've used are all SMASH* (you can find them at The Stamp Spot online store). I've also used a selection of other bits from my stash and made my own rolled ribbon flower.

I've used The Stamp Spot July challenge spots on this page (scallop doilie and lace trim, black spotted SMASH* tape, rolled satin ribbon flower). Head on over, join the challenge and be in the running to win a fabby prize!

Thanks so much for stopping by
Crafty hugs xx

Hi Karyn, love that page in your smashbook! For me, I still don't get the smash hype. I don't know, it just doesn't hit me. Is it a photoalbum, a notebook, what is it?? I'm afraid I'll just stick to cardmaking and scrapbooking. Hugs, Frea
