Smashing Christmas ........

Hello lovelies, it's me again lol with something that I have been so excited to show you all! I have used the new Studio 12 Gingerbread Twist CD Picknix Collection for my project. This project was my post on the Studio 12 at Polkadoodles Blog from Tuesday.

I decided to make something different, now as you probably already know Smash books are popular at the moment. I wanted to create my own version from scratch and make it a Christmas Theme using lots of the elements from the cd and also adding my own twists like punched Christmas trees, netting, sewing and various other elements I have added which you will see as you scroll through my pictures. I got my sewing machine out again to add some stitching to the back and front covers, this is becoming a regular occurance with my machine!

What have I used for my Smash book you might ask...10 C5 envelopes, sealed them, then guillotined a piece off each edge,covered them with decorative paper and stuck them together with double sided tape, the open edges created the pockets for my lists that I have added. I bound the pages together like a book using my Bind It Machine.

So without further ado, let me introduce you to a..........................

SMASHING CHRISTMAS.............
