Welcome to the monthly SMASH Book Challenge for May 2014.

This is a monthly challenge to help those who want to work on their Smash Books & need some ideas & inspiration.

A Smash Book is something you buy (K&Co have quite a few, type Smash Book on the SB.com search box & you’ll see a selection; also CTMH has 2 Crush books that aren’t so topic oriented) or something you make- turn a journal into a memory collecting book. Or even choose a size of paper to use as the base & then bind the book together yourself. Really no rules here. Or you can use it to add pages to a Book of Me album or other such scrap project/album.

NOTE- I have combined both June & July’s topics to be August’s topics as so many of us were overwhelmed with so many other things over the summer, me included. So Please feel free to do what inspires you- no pressure to do all unless you want to ;)

Topic 1: Mail – What do you get in the mail? Junk? Cards? Letters? Products you’ve ordered? How do you get them - USPS, UPS, or FedEx?

Topic 2: Summer Fun What trips or activities do you only do in the summer?

Topic 3: Something New What have you done lately that is new? As in you’ve never done or had it before.

Topic 4: Fathers Day In honor of Fathers Day- what are you doing this month for the “father” in your life? Did you buy or make a card? Do you give gifts?

Topic 5: Water – Do you go to the pool during the summer- or better yet, have a pool? Slip & slide or sprinkler fun for the kids? What summer activity do you do (or dream of- say the beach) in the hot month of July?

Topic 6: Holiday Celebration In America we celebrate the 4th of July for our Independence Day. How do you celebrate? Fireworks? BBQ? Or if you aren’t in the US, is there a July holiday you celebrate?

Topic7: Travel Near or far- do you travel during July? Whether it’s a day trip or a week’s vacation- tell us a little about your trip. If it’s something you do annually- mention about that & why & how long you’ve been doing that adventure.

Topic 8: Routine Is your summer routine different than other times of the year? What’s different? Kids? Yard work? Vacation prep? Party prep or attendance?


Do all the topics or just one- it’s up to you. No rules- just inspiration to SMASH

Most of all, have fun, share as much or as little as you want, give positive feedback & leave as we all need some of that about our work.

I have stalled on this challenge. I am having difficulty deciding what I want to "smash" and what I want to "save" for my regular pages. I hope to have something to share soon.

Sometimes Laura I do a little of both- do a one photo & some journaling in my smash book while it's fresh & then I can refer back to that when I scrap it regular if I choose to do so.
