SMASH*ing July!

I've been using a 365 SMASH* folio as my 2013 SMASH*book . I love that at the end of the year I can look through the one book and get a glimpse of our life during the year.

I allocate six pages per month. On the first page for each month I include a calendar of the month (I create it in MS Word then print it out) and I write in the daily highlights with coloured pens. 

Today's SMASH* pages are for July and are made using the gorgeous September '13 Gourmet Tart kit from Lime Tart. The photos are from the last school holidays when we stayed in Adelaide and went to the movies.

I used the MME Cut and Paste papers from the kit and cut some strips, punched some circles, and fussy-cut around some of the flowers. I've also added a heap of the Crate Paper Party Day die-cuts, MME label stickers and a Studio Calico calendar journal card on the pages (all from the kit).

Finally, I've added a paperclip, wood veneers, and electronic diecuts from my stash and used some stamps and date stamp. 

In addition to the Gourmet Tart kit I've used Studio Calico flower, shapes and camera wood veneers; Freckled Fawn heart wood veneers; Kellie Stamps "MY DAY" stamp from the Thrifted stamp set, "INSTAmoment" and "Holiday" from the Favourite stamp set, "Movie Night" from the Just for you stamp set, and "selfie" from the I Made This stamp set; Stampin' Up! ink; Pebbles roller date stamp; and a paper-clip from my stash. I've used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the polaroid frame, today tag, and arrows.

Thanks so much for stopping by
