Smash Sunday




I shopped this week for a few crafty items.  After seeing a cute SMASH journal of copic color combos for hair colors here, I decided to make one of my own.  I went over to Michael's to see if I could find the Mini Smash Journal because it looked like it would be the perfect size for my project.  Unfortunately my Michael's didn't have any.  They did have the new extra large SMASH Folios.  I was tempted to get the red one and the new baby one for my BFF Marle who is expecting.  I decided to keep to my budget and not go crazy.  I did pick up some of the calendar washi tape and some Recollections lavender washi tape they had.  I also snagged a cute brag book by Hampton Art ditto.  It was in the clearance section and was only $1.49.   It had a blank cover you could color. Inside are plastic sleeves for photos.  



I decided to use this as a portable Copic inventory journal.  I will use the extra pages to hold my wish list when I go to Scrapbook Expo this June.  I find it is very easy to get distracted with all those amazing vendors and end up buying duplicates of something you already have or forgetting to pick up something you need.  I colored the cover with my Copics then put on a piece of patterned paper from the Making Memories Just Chillin paper pad and Glitz Epoxy stickers.  I covered the seam with some washi tape.


I ended up ordering from Oozak to get the Mini Smash Journal.  I also ordered some Goosebumps Shimmer spray and 10 Copic Originals.  Why originals you ask?  I feel like I can't seem to get a crisp enough stroke when coloring hair with my Sketch markers and trying to draw in strands of hair.  I decided to get some colors for hair where I could use the fine nib to do that.  I am so pleased, I ordered on Thursday and got my Copics by Saturday.  Excellent customer service!  Below is the picture of the Mini Smash Journal.  It is very cute and light and comes with a Smash Pen.  


I used the Moka Hair Color Chart which is a free download from Taylored Expressions.  I copied the image from the pdf into Word and then typed in the colors under each picture.  I added some Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks scraps and Washi tape to the already decorated SMASH pages to make the background.

Hi Michelle. I just love your book with the hair colors. I wish I had seen this before I went on my shopping trip yesterday. lol... We did see a ton of the little smash books and I really wish that I had bought one now. lol... I love this idea and I think I may need to check out oozak as I need a few refills anyway. Thanks for helping me to decide that I need to spend more money. :O) Like that has ever been a problem for me. Hope you are having a great weekend. Hugs, Lisa G
