Mamarazzi's Favorite Color Swap

Tuesday, May 8, 2012


My swap partner is Chrissy from A Lil' Dash of Diva, and she shopped for red surprises for me.  She bought me a red doodle-themed Smash Journal! We love Smash Journals around here, and if you have not heard of them, you should check them out!

Smash Journals all have themes.  The red one's theme is "Doodle Style."  They also come with a combination pen and glue stick.


I love the tapes and cut outs Chrissy chose.  The tapes are used to stick stuff into the journal.


I love the notes!



This is an example of one of the pages inside the journal.

Thanks, Chrissy, for your thoughtful surprises.  And thank-you, Mamarazzi, for hosting another fun swap!  I will post some of my Smash Journal pages at a later date after I have had a chance to play with it!

Until next time...

  1. I feel so out of touch that I have never heard of or seen these! Thank goodness I have you to keep me informed on hip. Have fun and I can't wait to see your pages!

  2. I have heard of these, but had no idea what they were. Looks like alot of fun...enjoy!

  3. I"ve never heard of Smash Journal. I wonder if we have them here in Canada - or possibly I've been living under a rock. I love the tapes and little sticky notes you got - especially the one that says "Do not forget. Seriously, do not forget!" That's the kind of note I need these days. What a fun swap.

  4. Ricki, I would say that all of this fun stuff is a SMASH hit! I have not heard of Smash journals. Where have I been?

  5. I've heard about SMASH stuff but have never seen it. I likey, likey! Lucky you...have fun playing :)

  6. I have not seen these items but then I am not crafty either. What fun YOU are going to have with them Ricki Jill. Will enjoy seeing what you create.

    Have a great week ~
