Not sure I completely "get" it, but this video was insightful.

I guess I don't see this as a "project" but more of an ongoing thing. Like, you just stick in there what you want, but I think it would have to have a purpose.

Like a wedding planning book or a scrap planning book with sketches and such or a trip book, that sort of thing.

I still don't really get it.

No worries. It sums up the new smash books quite well.

I am buying two of the "official" K & Co. once to take on a 40th summer bday cruise for my sister (girls cruise) and will create the books for both of us from the things we collect during the cruise

Holly, that's cute!

Manda, I'm using mine to collect clippings from scrap magazines. I love having them organized instead of in a pile.

Very cute Holly! Love the ribbons on the wires!

So, the notebook came with blank pages? And you cut the DCWV papers to fit the blank pages, leaving some open for pockets?

I'm still having a hard time picturing these.

well, I didn't have to do much she'll do the most I just decorated it a bit to her favorite theme, and handed it over for her to design as she will! I gave her the rest of the stack for her to decorate the other pages or not as she wishes so it didn't take a whole lot for my part

Tivi, does this help? This is really an altered steno book. It was easy-peasy. I just covered the front and back covers (inside and out) with patterened paper, embellished my front cover, and add ribbon to the binding rings at the top. You can't see it, but I've added pp and tabs (as dividers) to a few inside pages as well.
