Okay, I heard about Smash Books from a friend on Facebook and now they are every where and I have to admit when I first saw them I thought that the concept was like old school and not my type of scrapbooking...But, After looking at all of the cool books that people have done I was thinking this would be a GREAT little book to do for the 2011/2012 school year for my soon to be 13 year old son (omg-almost a teenager) since we homeschool and don't have a year book this would be great to add little notes, pictures, field trip memorabilia, just anything and if it turns out well we can do one for every year as a little yearbook for him..It is very interesting and I have linked a video below for you to watch so that you get the concept and some other info from the website and also a link to the blog..So check it out and let me know what you think:)
Smash Book Blog
Already a hit before it has even released (coming this spring!), SMASH is an exciting new program from K&Company that takes scrapbooking back to its roots. Simplistic, on-the-fly, and with no rules and no special crafting ability needed, you can Smash your everyday life between the pages of our contemporary-style Smash Books.
An ultra-convenient combo glue pen/journaling marker comes attached to each book so it’s always at hand when you need it. Now, how cool is that?!
So, what do you Smash? Well, it doesn’t have to be a life event, just the special little moments and mementos of your day—some of that stuff in your junk drawer, for example. A snapshot, a ticket stub from that movie you loved, a newspaper clipping, a magazine snippet, a cardboard coaster from a favorite restaurant, your child’s first crayon doodle…get the idea? Smash it, jot a note or add a caption sticker, and go!
Thanks for visiting and happy scrappin!
