DUE DATE: May 2 - must be mailed to your partner no later than this date

I was looking through handmade flower tutorials on YouTube and somehow got distracted and came across these tutorials on making Smash/Junk Journals (see links below).

Take a look to see the variety that can be included in the journal and see how jam packed they are with fun, creative pages and embellishments like tags, journal spots, patterned paper, stamped images, handmade flowers, and so much more. You can literally use all the skills and techniques that you’ve acquired from your scrapbooking/swapping experience and incorporate them into this journal.

I’m making the due date way out there, May 2nd (my dd’s birthday), so that you have ample time to finish up any current swaps you may be involved in before diving into this one. A survey is posted below that you will need to fill out and PM back to me at the time you sign up.

Sign ups end on Saturday, February 25th and partners will be assigned on Sunday, February 26th.

Please Join Us! The end product will be a journal that you will treasure forever, no matter how you use it.

SURVEY
I want your partner to have as much information about you as possible so that they can incorporate things that are meaningful to you. So the more you provide, the more ideas your partner will have. If you prefer not to provide any of the requested information, that’s ok, just try to share whatever you can that will give your partner a starting point and/or a path to follow.

Your full name:

Your screen name:

Nickname?

Which name, if any, do you prefer to be used in the journal, if your partner is so inclined?

Your home state/country:

Family info (married, single, children, pets?)

Your occupation:

Are there any groups, organizations, or associations that are high priority in your life (volunteer, church, book club, gym, Weight Watchers, etc.) or are there hobbies (other than scrapbooking) that you may enjoy having images of or references to in your journal?

If you don’t want to provide any of the above information, give your partner a guideline or starting point theme or idea.

Favorite color or color combinaton

Favorite style (clean & simple, distressed, vintage, bright, muted, etc.)

Favorite foods, drinks, candy (pizza, coffee, wine, chocolate, etc.)

Favorite city, country, vacation spot

Favorite saying

Anything that you DO NOT wish to see in your journal (neons, eyelets, bumpy stuff, etc.)

This looks like fun. Is there a certain type of notebook/binder to use. The one link it looked like they used a 3 ring thin binder type of book, the other one looked like spiral bound notebook.

Basically is it a scrappy journal that you can add pics & other momentos to?? I keep seeing "smash journals"...but I guess I just never took the time to pay attention to them

As far as I can see, all different types of books can be used, but my preference for this swap would be one that your partner has the option to add pages to in the future. So - spiral, 2 or 3 ring binder, ribbon binding, ring binding, all of those would work. Composition books would not be a good choice for this swap.

Hi Jessica!

I'll tell you the truth, when I first saw these I was reminded of the kind of scrapbooks I did as a kid when we scotch taped movie tickets, napkins and menus from our favorite restaurant, matchbooks, pictures of our favorite movie stars, etc. into it. So yes, a memento book would be along the lines of what I think of them to be used for. Among other things, I would use mine to hold the post office receipts and delivery confirmation receipts that I get from swaps, and receipts for scrappy purchases so I can see why I don't have money left at the end of the month -
