It’s smash book time! Create and Craft defines a smash book as a journal which you can write, draw, paint and glue in embellishments and memorabilia as you’re on the move. There’s no planning involved; you simply decorate as you feel in the moment.

Using a photographed book spine, we’ll develop on our own, lay-flat, open-book template complete with main, cover, and filler pages. We’ll then create the illusion that we’ve stuffed our custom-made smash book with thick digital scrapbooking products using our tried-and-true Clustertowne embellishing strategies.

We’ll explore the following techniques:

  • How to create a book template to match the supplied spine
  • For Photoshop users, customize the look of the pages using the Pen and Direct Selection tools
  • Add embossing to imply a thicker page
  • Add a pocket page
  • Stuff and frame the book using grounding techniques
  • How to decorate the main pages using Clustertowne strategies
