These are so cool!!! I am going to have to make myself one. I have all sorts of tags from clothes laying around and some cool artwork my kids did that I can't seem to throw away! Awesome idea! This would also be a great way to use those random cuts from my cricut!!!

will do Deb. I have seen lots of blogs on this. It appears they are hot, hot, hot. Like I said I am thinking of doing one for all the maps, tickets, coupons, I have from my WDW trip. I just couldn't think how to add these to the album, as I wanted to be able to pull out the maps, and so on. this is a great add on to the trip's album.

ok, I have been working hard on this book. have the front cover done, and binding. I didn't want to buy a roll of Duct Tape, but was able to get a sheet of it from M's for $2.00. I wasn't sure about working with it. However it was easier than I thought, and I was able to get it to go on soooooooooooooo easy. And if you don't get it straight, you can pull it back up, and work with it. I did all the ribbon, and made sure it was under the Duct Tape, but I added one on top and it came out cute.

However, when you look at the Smash Book from CHA, they have a rubber band, that if you want to have it close. I was able to go to the area at Target that has those hair bands, and it worked the same. I found a group of four, with some nice colors, and they are more for young girls. It works fine. I am doing to add a embell on it to add some pop. Now I have to come up with a title.

But boy, there is a lot of pages to cover.

Hint, I found that even with not covering the whole page, after a few pages, it started sticking out farther than the cover, so I trimmed it. Also I found that my Fiskars page rounder was just right. I know she said it didn't have to be neat, however, I am a little anal about things like that.

I've always got receipts, ticket stubs, feathers and other non-acid-free stuff which I don't want to throw away, but don't warrant a full scrap-book page.

Very tempting indeed....

I think I might make my own though, with rings so that extra pages can be added. Those books don't look very expandable with all the stuff to stick in.

LOVE the idea of the pen with glue one end!

I was looking for something on youtube and ran across the junque journals. I am starting one now. Crinkling my pages while I surf the net and watch TV.

I had a gift certificate from Mother's Day so I decided to treat myself. I bought the stamper, the "I love it" tape and a SMASH journal. They looked so cute, I just couldn't resist. I usually buy only stuff I NEED for a specific layout so it was fun to splurge on more of a not needed item. I plan on using it to "collect" scrapping ideas-quotes, sketches, notes so self about layouts, etc. I also plan to put a few pics. here and there to inspire me!
