California - SMASH Book Page

I had some left over vacation pics of me when I came to my home town on vacation in 2005.  But I live here now.  There is another picture behind the postcard and on the back of the post card I wrote some journalling about all the aerospace in my town.  I used the Cricut for the cut outs and an old punch I had for the little state shapes.

In-N-Out - SMASH Book Page Retro Book

When I didn't live in CA, all I wanted was In-N-Out!  These pics are from 2005 or 2006 when I was out here on vacation.  Now that I live here, I go about once a month or less.  But I know its right there and can go anytime I want!

This is from our fave one in Santa Clarita, CA.  We always stop on the way to LA and on the way back!

The 65 years things are from 2013 when they had their 65th anniversary.  LOVE IN N OUT!  If you ever visit one, ask for a paper hat that the employees have on, and sometimes they will give you stickers too!  Wish I could find my stickers but who knows where they are lol.

Three More Pages in the Retro SMASH Book!

3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica!  I used a map for the background.  Cut out information about the area.  We shopped at Tesla and Sephora.  Ate at The Hummus Bar.  I used a pic of the beach to add my journalling.  I also cut up the Tesla bag and saved the tag off the hat he bought.

My 35th Birthday, actually hate doing birthday layouts but happy how this turned out.  I used some extras from a few pages I had already completed and added the doily.  I also found the magnet from the restaurant.  I made the picture on the right a little pocket for the My Wish to be pulled out to see the journalling.

I used the Top 10 in the book as the Top 10 Places we had been together.  Pain in the butt to use up different letter stickers but I want these old things all used up!  The cut outs I received in a RAK last year and misc. pictures of us at a rest stop.  So happy with this.  Makes me happy to see it all and think of all the places we have travelled together.

Retro SMASH Book Layouts of the Day

I have a goal to finish my light blue Retro SMASH Book!  The more I get done, I swear the farther it is away from being complete.  But had a fun couple hours this morning.

Page One:  A page about my Great Uncle Toby and his bar.  Used old paper lace washi from the Dollar Tree I bought a million years ago, fabric washi from the dollar store, and my friend Evelyn gave me the roster cards from Michaels.  I just cut out what I wanted to match since my uncle owned a Bar/Chicken place.  

Page 2, used washi, some Sponge Bob cut outs Evelyn gave me she scored on at the 99 cent only store, old letter stickers, misc. pics of my nephew, and my square punch to cut the pics out.

Page 3 Used left over journaling squares and stickers from a little album I bought at Big Lots for a buck! SCORED on that deal. 

Page 4 a page about my Dad being in the hospital.  The picture on the left lifts up and I journaled all the scary moments from those few days.  Used stickers I got at Hobby Lobby and his tags from the hospital. 

Page 5 Misc. Pics taken at Wal Mart with my mom around St. Patricks Day in 2012!  Evelyn gave me the stickers, foam stickers, and confetti.

Sushi - SMASH Book Page

I've been saving all my umbrellas from my food when I go to one of my fave sushi places but someone on the Smash group inspired me to finally smash it!

Lancaster Caramels SMASHbook Page

Even though they are not pronounced the same, everyone in Lancaster, CA, have been talking about Lancaster Caramels.  We finally found some at Rite Aid and wow they are really good.  Just had to SMASH about it.  I used my Heritage Cricut Cart to mimic the bag, my Big Shot for embossing the journal card, and washi.  Really simple page but I love it!

Los Angeles Scrapbook Page - using Cricut Digital Cartridge

I"ve had this digital cartridge forever and haven't used it.  Yesterday, we met with family visiting from out of town in LA, and of course had to take them to In-N-Out!

Photo Booth Fun at CHA with Coredinations Cardstock Booth

Girly Card Set

I used some stamps I had on hand, DCWV paper, and my Cricut to make the frames, and box.

Oh Snap - Birthday Card - Artbooking Cartridge

I used the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to make a birthday card for my Father in Law.  So much fun because he loves and collects cameras.

I used a regular blue card I had on hand, then cut patterened paper for the front, cut one inch strip of polka dot, and added to top and bottom.

I cut out the Happy Birthday and attached to the inside and cut out Dad for the outside.  Used brown ink to distress the envelope and card.
