Vacation “SmasH” Book

Initial Shaped Book to Treasure

Well I was trying to think of a fun thing for my grand-daughter to do each day. I came up with a (I hope) fun memory book for her to make with me each day. I know that I treasure everyday with her and now she will be able to have her own memory book.  She will have to be supervised with it because of small parts but I know she will love creating pages in it.
  • Cereal box chipboard
  • Craftwell Ecraft Die Cutting Machine
  • light weight cotton fabric from JoAnn’s Fabrics
  • Several Sheets of solid colored cardstock
  • Signify Pink’s Glimpses “Life is a Party” paper and embellishment set 
  • Sewing machine optional
  • xyron 5 inch stamp creator or adhesive of your choice.
I first cut out my “book covers” out of chipboard. I used a heavy font and blacked it out so that I removed the center hole and could use it as a cover piece.
I used a pressure setting of 7 and a multi-cut of 2, I used no tab setting. I get clean cuts with my ecraft. I also used my Ecraft Pro Software to send my “R” to my machine.
I next covered the front of my “R” with cloth. I embellished it with pre-adhesive cut outs from Signify Pink. They have such great paper and embellishment assortments. Signify Pink want you to know that they have closeout prices and that products are going fast! They  have a pretty good amount of inventory, to meet your needs. . Be aware athat wholesalers can order
If they don't have a wholesale account, there's a place to request it and we do it pretty quickly.
They can look at the retail site, just to see the product though –  I just love their wild and bright colors. They make my projects just jump to life.
I love the ease of using these great products. They even have lettering, so much to make your project fun.   Next I bound all together at the top so that it would open like a flip chart. That way we have plenty of filling room!
I love the extras in the SignifyPink packages such as the pinwheels, and banners with baker twine. In my paper assortment there was also a “Scrappy Bag” with fun embellishments. Wait till you see the Black and White grouping, or  better yet find out how to order your own right now at
I know we will have such fun filling the pages together. Don’t let your special days go without catching some of those memories.
See you next week,
