Smash Sunday

Hello! I'm back with week two of Smash Sunday, the weekly post where I share what I've been up to in my Smash Books. Last week I put together these Spring-inspired pages in my red, Everyday book:

I used these photos for a pair of layouts (that I will share soon!), and had doubles printed. I used the extras for these pages, along with bits and pieces from Lily Bee, Cosmo Cricket, Elle's Studio, American Crafts, and Pink Paislee. I had a lot of fun searching my stash for green, pink and red.

My favorite details include this red bookmark, which I received as a thank you gift in an order from the Etsy shop 29blackstreet. It's her own original art and seeing as I am currently putting together my summer reading list, I thought it was the perfect piece of ephemera to add this week.

Also, even though I don't sew, I've begun collecting spools of thread in pretty colors. I love the look of a little bit of messy thread tucked here and there. It must have to do with the random strands I find stuck to me after crafting all of the fabric flowers for my Etsy shop :). I added some red thread in the corner and I really like the way it loops off of the page.

A magazine clipping made its way onto this spread. I found this leather bow bracelet image in a BHG magazine and trimmed it out. I had already seen a tutorial for these bow bracelets on Pinterest and even taught a group of girls how to make them, but with Spring here, I want to make more in some bright pretty colors.

SRM Stickers has several sheets of great Spring-themed sentiments, and I just had to add several. Some are on the edges, and one is directly on a photo - I love that technique and will probably use it again and again!

I smashed a bit more in a few spare moments, but I'm still tinkering and will share next time :). I hope you've had a great weekend and are ready for a great week! Thanks for stopping by :). Tessa
