If you have come here from Jacquelin Green’s Blog , you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.  This month we have over 30 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the Crush books, accessories, and coordinating stamp sets.  To visit each blog for some great ideas just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go! 

Here are two different things that I did with Crush books.  The first one I used as a place for all my ticket memorabilia.  The second one started out as a place for all those “other” photos that I received and once I got started I realized that I wanted to buy another book and have two – one for all the photo cards from friends and family that I receive around the holidays, then a second book for things like yearly pictures of the nieces/nephews, graduations, birth announcements, wedding invitation photos, etc.  I am so please with this and it’s a nice book to look back through (especially years later!) instead of just throwing all those photos.

In addition to using the Assortments and Washi Tape for embellishments, I also cut up parts of the photo cards and used them – this works especially well from graduation announcements to record the year and name.  Also, notice that I did not put things in chronological order (this way when I find things later I don’t have to fret about adding them!)

So here’s the ticket book (I need to do more journaling but you get the idea) –

    I love both of your books, but I think I’m going to give the photo book a try as I always feel guilty throwing away those pictures.

    Oh – I love the idea about the “ticket” page. I have so many. And I love your idea about the graduation announcements and small school pictures.
