The hot scrapbooking topic at the moment seems to be smash books. For those of you wondering what I'm talking about, this little video tells you all you need to know.
So - yes in short a little book to stick things in. Mmm - seen that anywhere before? Is it something to get excited about? It appears that lots of people are and it could turn into a "marmite" subject - either you love um or hate um. Some people have already started to make their own - check out Emy's or Susie's or Ali's or MaryAnne's. Shimelle had an interesting take on the whole issue - is the product really aimed at a scrapbooker? As I read her post, I thought these might be nice gifts for my girls - something to complete over the summer holidays maybe.
So do I smash? Well sort of. For my last few holidays I have kept a travel journal, make notes on what we did each day. I make them using up old papers that I don't think I will use on my pages and decorate them with stamps. You may remember my Disney one I posted here. For my holiday last week, I added some plastic pockets to collect the ticket stubs, leaflets and postcards of places we had visited. Here are a few pictures.
Since starting blogging, I also carry a notebook around for noting down ideas when I'm not at my desk. It is something I do need to get better at as I quite often get ideas from stuff I see in magazines but don't make a note and then can't remember where I've seen it. I suppose I should just "smash" it into a note book!
So what do you think? Do you get the whole smash book thing. Will you smash? Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
