Recently I discovered the smash book….
(dun dun duuunnnn)
But i loved it! So I wanted to buy one!
I went to Joann’s the other day to get white paint and letter stickers….
i got the white paint, decided not to get the stickers, and ended up with a smash book! 🙂
But i was in a big hurry that day so that’s all I got.
But a few days later i had time to go back and look around and get fun embellishments and stuff for my smash book.
(p.s. im going to be doing a introduction to smashbooking blog post soon!)
I’m going to go ahead and apologize for the bad iPhone pictures, I’ll be using my DSLR from now on!
I also forgot to take a picture of the paint i bought but i just bought the
Americana White Acrylic paint 8oz bottle..
I recomend buying the 8oz bottle if you paint alot, otherwise you’re going to be going through alot of little bottles!
Plus with a 50% off coupon at Joann’s you can get it for the same price as the small bottle! 🙂
Here is a over-view of everything i got 🙂
When I got my smashbook I decided to get the smashbook kit instead of just the book.
Here’s what came in the kit:
Smash Tags Washi Tape Tags (kinda like post it flags)
The Pocket Smash Book!
The kit was $24 i think, but i had a 40% off coupon on my phone!
I got these cool pockets to put pictures, etc. in!
My mom loved these tags so she bought them for me, I’m trying to convince her to start smashbooking with me! 🙂
I had been looking on pinterest over the weekend for some inspiration for my smashbook.
I saw how some people had decorated the outside of their books too, so i decided i wanted to put a word on the front.
When we got to the store I saw this and I loved it +Joann’s was having a 40%off scrapbooking sale.
You have to find the sales!!!
Two washi tapes! I’m trying to grow my tape supply!
$1.40 a piece.
I liked these little chipboard stickers and this pack had the perfect sticker for a page I was planning!
(The name of this brand made me laugh “Hey Girl!”)
I got both of these stickers out of the $1 bin and they will be really good for fillers! 🙂
I had my eye on these paints for a while.
I took a oil painting class over the summer and wanted to experiment with them some more.
This pack was $12.99, again, I had a coupon so i got them for $ $7.80.
This was the only item I used a coupon on, Everything else was on sale! 🙂
I always get the multi packs of canvas, and i always buy them when they are on sale! 🙂
I picked up a pack and then realized it had a special price on it because there was a *very very small* cut in one of the canvas. That pack was marked down for *$3.50*!!!!
$3.50 for two canvas’!!!
I didnt worry about the cut because i can collage on that canvas! 🙂
+ even if that canvas had been completely ruined 1 canvas for $3.50 is still a steal! 😉
Anyway i wasnt going to get that pack since i’ve started making paintings to sell but,
my mom told me she would buy it for me! <–She’s pretty awesome! 😉 ❤
but i bought the other pack too! 🙂
I got all of this (-the smash book kit) for a whopping $33!
I saved $18.10!!!
without all the sales and coupons the total would have been $51.10, and i would not have bought half of what I did!
What I got from Michael’s:
I discovered copic markers a few months ago but i hadnt been able to try them yet because,
I couldnt find them anywhere locally.
But i was at Michael’s the other day and found them!!!
So I got two because they were on sale for buy 1 get 1 half off.
RV25 Dog Rose Flower, & R32 Peach
That’s everything I got! I have worked some in my smashbook and i am going to blog about it soon!
Stay tuned for that!
