I have 2 smash books. Bought one last year, never did anything with it. Took a class on smash books at CKC in Vegas in June--got a book and supplies, have done nothing with it. Just been collecting smash book supplies...

Imake my own - they also go by the name of Junk/Junque Journals - check out Youtube, they have them all over the place. The thing that I like about making your own is that we have all the supplies already to make them, and in my opinion better.

I was wanting to make my own. Did you use a notebook, or did you bind a book of pages yourself? I guess that's what I'm trying to decide. I want to make a journal/smash book for each of my daughters for the whole year 2013. I'm not sure if they'll want to write in it daily though.

I already know I'm going to make tabs for the months. I was thinking maybe 3 entries for each page (6 front and back), so 5 pages for each month. Will that be to crammed?

I did search online under Smash books, but I'll search under junk books too. Thanks!

I have bound them with my bind it all as well as with binder rings. depends on how I feel. it may be a little crammed,but I don't think any more crammed than any other junk journal. here are some samples from YouTube

That design is already embossed on the cover. I outlined it with a marker.

Does anyone else feel like the Smashbooks are just the original scrapbooks, before we started getting fancy? I like them and I'm also thinking of making my own.

I totally did not get smash books at all until I watched a video about them. Then I went out and bought one, LOL! Here's the link:

I like the idea of smash books - and to be honest I think they are practical everday journals for scrapbookers - I don't always want to scrapbook the tickets to the movies I have seen, etc., but they are important part of my life and day to day happenings. Lots of times we wonder what to do with the cards, ticket stubs, etc. I think smash books are great for that - you can add them and write a few sentences if you want and be done, or just glue it on a page and be done (even faster). However, I would be reluctant to purchase one, since it's basically scrapbook paper bound.........

I read the thread in the lounge that sent me here....watched the videos....and today MUST go to the store! I think this is the type of "scrapbooking" that I have time for! I save stuff from everywhere we go, and think to myself that I will never have time to scrap it all. I really think I would enjoy this!

Well since I'm not really sure how the girls will like 'Smashing' I decided to make a kit for them. That way they can make their own whatever way works best for them. I filled a container with Smash tabs, alpha's, stickers, paper cut to fit their pages, a notebook, a Smash pen, & more. I hope they like it.
