Scrapbooking has been going through quite a few changes lately. Your local scrapbook store may have closed and the big box stores have downsized their scrapbook departments. For those of us who love to create with paper and love to preserve memories this is disheartening. I am so thankful to work for a company that is committed to memory keeping. Because of that, not only do they continue to produce traditional scrapbook supplies, they also follow the trends. One of these trends is the Smash Book. Close To My Heart has come up with it's own version called My Crush. It is an on-the-go scrapbook/journaling system that appeals to the younger crowd.
We recently went on a cruise to the Southern Caribbean with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. I always make some sort of mini scrapbook for them. This year I decided I would make them a My Crush book. I'll be teaching a class on this wonderful way to document memories at the scrapbook retreat at Singing Hills. Here is my teaser picture to get the ladies interested in my class.
I am going to show them how to take this portable My Crush book with them and how they can put everything together. Does this make you want to make a Crush book of your own? It's easy. The book is only $12.95 and there are adorable embellishment assortments that include alphabet stickers, journal cards and envelopes for only $4.95. It's quite a deal. You can get this and much more at my website:
