Smash Book Journal #1
My 16th Birthday
Today I will be sharing with you one of my recent obsessions. Smashbooking. Until recently, I didn't actually know the difference between scrapbooking and smashbooking. Then I stumbled upon MyGreenCow on YouTube. Her amazing "smashbook session" videos alongside all the gorgeous photos I've seen on Pinterest got me immediately sucked in and I thought I would give this a try.
Before I left Cameroon for the UK, I got a normal A4 notebook which I used as a "Memoire" which is French for "Memories". It was basically a book where your friends wrote things about themselves in so you could remember them. Things like their favourite movies, hobbies, what they like and hate about you e.t.c. When I got to the UK I started using it as a journal as well and recording events in my life that I wanted to remember. I have now discovered a fun way of recording memories aka smashbooking.
|Bits and pieces from my birthday cards.|
|Other stationery bits I thought I might use.|
|And voila. Here is my first ever smashbook layout. I'm still new to this so it might not be perfect but I guess smashbooks are not meant to be perfect anyway.|
|Lastly, I couldn't help but do a bit of journalling as well coz I think sometimes, pictures without words don't say much.|
Thanks for reading.
