I always do a first day of school page. Each of the girls have their own 8x8 album that I started on their first day of pre-school up to the current. When they reach the twelve grade I will give it to them. My girls are one school year apart so it is always interesting. I them make a 12x12 page for my own album to keep. Here is the completed project. I used for the first time (I have had it for 4 years). I have never used a sewing machine on a page and I always wanted to do it. Now I am hooked. I only did one side but I can see doing it on cards now. I used the Ek-Success border punch, DCWV cardstock border paper(2x12), sizzix large die "school supplies, recollection back to school stamp, Colorbok 12x12 paper pack pearlescent

|Distress concord Ink|
I saw a great deal of videos on YouTube about Smash It and Junk journal books. I thought I would try my hand at making one as a gift for a friend of mine who is retiring. It's a start but it could be better. I added watercolor paper, stencils, Distress Inks and stains, Glimmer Mists. The chipboard came from the Micheal's dollar bin, The paper is a mixture of brazzil, recollections and archivers. Stamps used were paper trey ink, TPC Studio, hero arts and hot off the press. I definitely enjoyed making this and can't wait to make more and perfect it. I definitely will use my bin-it-all next time. I'm really enjoying the tim holtzs stains and the tattered angels glimmer mists. I just purchased the claudine hellmuth studio paints. I will use it on the next junk journal...
