Looks like the brag book is a bit like the smash books or junque journals ... to me its a more informal type of scrapbook ... hopefully someone else will weigh in with their opinions/experience...


And welcome!

I love my brag book... I like the smash ones too.

I use if for the little things that happen in day to day life.

I have found that I like my scrapbooks very clean and neat and this book is my "hot messy life" if that makes any sense.

I have one. I haven't used it yet. It's a great book. It has pages with a pocket to put things in, there are page protectors to put pictures in (I think the size is 4x6) and there are pages to decorate and journal on.

well, after all the comments about Smash Books i lookd them up. I thnk this would be perfect for my VERY creative 6yr old grandaughter!!!! Then if all goes well we can do a nicer, prettier album. Although i really like that idea of the book,glue ad pen just right there. HUM, just one more item to add to my "wish list"

Google "junque journal"

I cannot think of the gal's name - but she has a series of 3 vids on you-tube to make your own .. you use a composition book and doctor it from there.

My daughter is doing one for each year of high school .. the girls in our church youth also decided to do one - it was a really fun project getting the book ready.

I also have one, but decided to give it (empty) to my little sister who is going to New Zealand this fall to do part of her student teaching. She's very artistic and creative so I thought it might be something fun to have/do while she's gone that she can then show to everyone when she gets back (or at least for those of us not on Facebook to hear about things "live"...)
