    I used cardboard that came with album refills and altered it with paper, ink and stickers. For the inside of the smash book, I cut paper to size and hole punched it. I didn't want to order a premade smash book, because I saw it as an opportunity to clear out my paper stash and use the stuff that was sitting for years and years.

    My pages are sturdy because I am using cardstock and adding paper to it. It is a work in progress that will evolve as I add to it.

    No rules! Make it yours!

    Great idea to use up your stash! ..............P

    Great thread. I am planning on making a smash book for my Disney Cruise in May and have been gathering paper and stickers. I have an original pink smash book but I want to really have a specific Disney one for this trip so I will try to make one myself. I don't know if I will use binder rings or my cinch. Any tips or suggestions on what to include or how to put it together would be much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Cathie

    I have a Smash Book. I saw it at Walmart one day when I was looking for something different last month and bought it out of the blue. My friend made a smash book from a composition book after I got mine. We're doing a project where we fill it up this year and when it's december we'll send each other our book and fill out a page in it ourselves. pretty cool.

    i have pages dedicated to those who past away and those who are still among us in my family. It's pretty cool.One thing I found good for Smash books was postagram app. It creates real postcards and you can pop out the picture in the card to put anywhere. The app is free but it does cost something to send a REAL post card gram. Pretty good for vacationing in Disney.

    I have 5 Smashbooks in the works for our August trip. One is mine combining some scrapbooking of the trip as well as using it as my trip planner. I am also making 4 mini books for our children and my Mom and will be surprising them with them before we leave for the airport. They will include our dining plans and different spots they can capture their own memories. I am so excited to have learned about these great little gems.

    Thanks so much!

    I picked up some new smash type items at Michaels this past week, it's called Snap.
    I liked the lined pages and the slide in sleeves. They had sleeves that were like project life too.
    I'm going to see if they fit my smash book today when I get home.

    The Snap stuff doesn't fit the album I have, but I can punch new holes in them and make it fit. I don't think my album is Smash though, It's another brand but I can't figure out what one.
