I will try to post a photo this weekend. It is nothing terribly fancy, but I love how simple and convenient it is. It will help document things better than photos on my computer.

So I guess my scrapbook I started last summer for our Kansas/Indiana trip is a smash book.
Huh, who knew it had a name! LOL

I'll try to post pics when I'm done. That's my goal for the end of January.

Here are some pics of my smashbook. I'm using it as a journal for my DLR trip with Rachel and my NYC trip with Sarah.

So glad that this is a trend that is starting to catch on! I saw these online this summer when I was reading a scrapping blog and knew that I had to have one. I got one for my birthday in december and it came with a bunch of the accessories...it was a bundle pack from a scrapping site my husband buys from for me. I purchased the fuji instax 210 around christmas and took both on my trip to dis two weeks ago and took some disney stickers and my bff took a bunch of stuff along with her smash book and camera and we would smash each evening in her room. It was perfect b/c we were both at blt and one floor from each other. I def recommend these books...they are awesome and I can't say enough good things about them as well as the fuji instax! I'll have to post some pics when I get a moment.

We might have to move in a few years & I see we have accumulated soooooo much stuff since living here for 17 years. I am terrified to think what a LIFETIME of photo albums, scrapbooks & keeping every single memory will look like and how big of a house one would need.

I am drawing the line a lot closer than I used to.

Not to mention the $ that the scrapbook industry gets out of us. Evernote = free. There may even be other digital journal methods, I just use Evernote for everything.

Whoa. Gotta go check out Evernote! I have already given up traditional scrapbooking in favor of digital, but I like this idea of journaling on the go! Thanks!

(BTW, the Smashbooks do tempt me at the store, but I'm trying to have less clutter so I'm resisting them!)

I've just found I can get one postage-free for £15 Might get it for my summer vacation - I always write a trip journal and save stuff for scrapping, but I end up chucking stuff because it doesn't fit my layout - I might be a biyt less precious with this

Here are some pages I made in a sample book I made for my Michaels store. The book, tape, tags, journalling papers and pockets are all things sold at Michaels. The books at Michaels have different colored spines and each color has a different style of papers in the book. They gave me the black book which is the Mod style. I didn't have a specific theme for the book as I was showing a variety of ways to use it.

I decorated the cover because I thought it was boring looking:






On this page, I used actual leaves I picked up on a hike my DH and I took one morning. The pocket on the right holds a map for the park we were at.


This is the only page that has an actual photo on it.








This book has a calendar page in it and I was trying to figure out a way to use that. I decided to use it as a recipe page. I'm always wanting to make different cookies at Christmas, but when the time comes I don't want to try something new incase it doesn't work and I don't have time to make something else. So, my plan is to try out a different recipe each month. This page shows a photo and the title of the recipe I did for January. The recipe card for all the recipes will be in these pockets at the back of the book.

The second will be for my day to day life. Things we do as a family.
I'm finding the comment about the grunting teenager a little humorous. DD is a HS senior - and we are working hard to complete a scrapbook for her HS years before her grad party. THe project is coming along nicely and while technically - we are about 1/2 way done - it will be officially complete with whatever pages are done by her party.

But back to the grunting - I can raise you a grunt with an eye-roll!

Thank you for posting the sample you did DisneyisTerrific! I love what you did with the tape!

And - DD was commenting that she wants to scrapbook her college years too. I suggested the smash books might be a fun way to do that. Not worrying about it until the HS book is done DD is definitely interested in those for college. So I may start to get her some of the stuff if I need birthday ideas for her.
