Smashbook with me: Seattle Edition!

Hi everyone, I’m back with another creative blog post today. I apologize for not posting the other day, I had an advising appointment to pick out my classes for College. Anyways, today’s post will be a smashbook with me, if your unfamiliar with a smashbook, it’s a more creative/less organized version of a scrapbook. I’ve had this smashbook for about two years already, and I usually use this only for my vacations or major events. Today, I am going to smashbook my Seattle trip! I hope you all enjoy and get some ideas of creativity to try out.

Things you will need: 

  • A smashbook
  • Pictures (I recommend printing them out on paper for a smaller size).
  • Scissors and a glue stick
  • Travel souvenirs such as; (tickets, Polaroids, stickers, hotel keys, dried flowers, etc.)
  • Pens of your choice

Starting off, make sure you have everything you will need in order to start.

I started out by cutting out my Seattle header that I printed out on a piece of paper. I also used a fun print pair of scissors to give the words a cool look. Then I cut out any other pictures or words that I was planning on using.

I then glued down a few pieces (a part of my boarding ticket) and started to have an idea on my layout. I added two cute plant stickers on top and then added a cute plant washi tape border around my boarding ticket.

I then taped down my Polaroid photo in a spot where I thought it fit well.

I then thought of this cute idea to cut a lavender colored paint sample panel for this idea I had in mind to put my dried lavender onto.

Excuse the quality of the photo itself, it was zoomed in this photo, but I really loved the way it came out.

I then wrote “Emerald City” with a green marker to fill up some empty space. Unfortunately my handwriting is not the best, therefore I usually just type out what I want to see, but at least it gives my page some character.

I then taped my hotel room key slot onto my page in the corner, where I thought it fitted perfectly.

One of the last things, I did was cut a photo and use this pretty floral background out of a magazine to layer the photo onto, to give it dimension.

I also forgot to mention, on the bottom of this page, I taped down my admission ticket from the Chihuly Garden & Glass Musuem. I added a few other smaller details, that I did not document and then came with my final product.

Here is the final product of my Seattle trip on my smashbook!

Unpopular Opinions/// Just for fun

Hello everyone, I am back with another post on my blog today. This is just a random/fun post just to kick off the week. I have been noticing the trend with these unpopular opinions posts/videos and I thought why not try this. Also do not get offended, like I said this is just for fun and these are just my opinions, anyways I hope you guys enjoy and comment down below if you agree with any of these!

  1. ASMR is super cringey and not at all soothing, I can’t stand it.
  2. Mayo is a must on sandwiches/burgers, or else it would be so dry and yucky, and the mayo just tops a sandwich.
  3. Nutella is gross af, never liked it.
  4. Bhad Barbie songs are actually somewhat good, they’re super catchy, however I still don’t like her as a person.
  5. 13 Reasons Why isn’t a terrible show, however I do not agree with how they portray everything throughout the series, there are definitely many areas that need improvement on mental health awareness.
  6. The ACE family is incredibly overrated, I do not understand why everyone is obsessed with them.
  7. Sushi is not the best food ever, it’s cold and very bland. Have you ever heard of tacos or pizza?
  8. Thin mints are not the best kind of Girl Scout cookies, there too basic, therefore it’s tagalongs that take the crown.
  9. Ulta is way better than Sephora. They have a larger selection, cheaper, and more of a variety for cruelty free products.
  10. Why the heck does everyone have a juul, it’s disgusting and pointless. (Not hating if you do that just don’t understand why everyone is obsessed with them.)
  11. In and Out is honestly the most overrated fast food place there is, their burgers not even really good and the fries are mediocre. Portillos is a million times better, Chicago does food right.
  12. Glossy lips>>> colored lips . I am obsessed with the way they look, compared to liquid or regular lipstick.
  13. Leonardo DiCaprio is not that good looking honestly. Don’t get me wrong he’s an amazing actor and good person in real life, but not attractive.
  14. The yodeling boy was not at all funny or amusing, I don’t know why he became so famous.
  15. Lastly, ice tea is just a big no. There’s no flavor and it’s just no. Water is better than that.

Hope you all enjoyed this short post. Comment down below if you agree with anyone of these, and if you don’t then well comment if you want haha. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post, it will be a creative post on smashbooking my Seattle trip! See you all tomorrow bye!
