When I first stumbled up Katie from http://www.callmecrazyreviews.com it was through her youtube videos and when I realized she was a blogger as well I quickly started to follow her. I don’t recall how long I have been following Katie but it feels like she has always been a part of my blog roll.
Earlier this month she started to talk about Smash Journals and I was intriqued and was so happy when she shared a Smash Jourmal 101 post because after reading that I knew this was something I wanted to take part in.
I was so thrilled when Katie shared her Smashing Journal Essentials because I honestly had no idea what I should get and pick up. So seeing her essentials made shopping a whole lot easier.
The Smashing Journal I picked up was the International one and I was thrilled because when I went to Michael’s to pick up my Smashing Journal essentials the lady was putting alot of the items on sale so I was lucky enough to get everything on sale.
I paid $5.99 for the journal. It comes with a black pen/glue stick that is attached to the book making journaling and adding pictures/souvenirs etc quick and easy. I love all the pages that are in the journal so I am looking forward to bringing this on our trip.

List pads are perfect for when you get into a Smash Journal funk. The ones I got were: Blank , Top 10, Activity, and two Travel ones. These were on sale for $1.29 to $1.49
Then I happened to be in Walmart looking at some craft supplies for Michael to do this summer and I spotted a small Smash display and got another Smash list in Top 10, page tabs that are labelled with I want, I need, to make, to bake and to buy (I already have another Smash journal in mind for these ones), a pack of page tabes that you can fill in yourself and a pink pen/glue stick.
