Smash* what in? Smash*, Smash*ing... What on earth is it and how does it work?
K and Company made a scrapbooking type journal call Smash* and rolled out a style of scrapbooking called Smash*ing. There are several different styles and themes of books. Here is K and Company's description of how to use your Smash* book:
Remember how grandma used to scrapbook? She'd have some pictures, news articles, a wedding announcement, or a birthday card and she would tape or glue it in her scrapbook and then she'd journal about it?
Well that's all Smash*ing is. You have pictures, receipts, brochers and ephemera from your life's adventures and you just put them in your Smash* book. You add some stickers, tags, evelopes, journalling cards, clips, tape and other fun embellishments to make the pages look super cute and then journal about the day or event. Traditional scrapbooking consists of layouts. Smash*ing is different in the way that it's messier, random, layering and there are no rules. It is not so neat and planned. You can Smash* about things you like, your family, special occassions, vacations or everyday life.
This is my Smash* book that I am currently working on. It's the yellow International themed book.
Here is one of my page layouts. The pages are all interactive with flaps and tags and envelopes for journalling spots and more interest.
These are close ups of the page on the right, showing how the postcards flip up and out to reveal extra areas for decorations and journalling.
I love these next 3 pages. I did one on Michigan where I live and 2 on the city of Holland and the Tulip Time Festival they have every year. We love going with our kids to the festival which celebrates dutch heritage.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my Smash* pages. I'd love for you to leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Keep an eye out for the third installment in the Recycled Mini Albumn series.
