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!
I am happy with the way it turned out, it’s not my best one, but I still love it! I had fun showing you all how I smashbook, and if you’d like to see more then do no not forget to like and follow my blog.
