Thanks for the tips, Lunie and Doreena. I love the fact that this book is going to be all about me! My love for books, 5 inch heels, my favorite foods, etc! The possiblities are endless! I also love that I am a scrapper with so much stuff, so I have lots and lots of stuff I can smash with! I appreciate your input and look forward to smashing really soon! Looking forward to seeing your "smashing" artwork, Lunie:)

Checked out Madison's gallery and I am so glad that I don't have to share my scraps with my daughter! Wowzer! Awesome work coming from your "mini me." Actually I think that it would actually be fun if my daughter shared my love for scrapping:) BTW...you will probably have to get her a Smash book pretty soon! LOL!

OMG don't even say that! I was totally thinking the same thing!
Yikes!
LOL!

Actually since she is so young and not into scrapping so much as an artform, she is happy w/ whatever leftovers I have to give her (AKA the stuff I don't want anymore!!! Hahahahahaha) so sharing my stuff is not so bad. Plus she goes through stages of wanting to and not wanting to.
So it's not too bad.

I think the Smashbook would be better for her but i think she can wait a couple of more years. I think when she is a teenager she will truly appraciate it. By then I will be on my 10th book!!!! LOL!

Well, guess who bought an XL red smash book last night?! Raising my hand excitedly, "Me, me, me!" But I think that it's starting to intimidate me. It is so big! I want to have fun with this. Do things that I don't normally do on my layouts ie, doodle, paint, mist. I want to have fun without it being a daunting task. Any suggestions?



I bought the XL one first and then decided to exchange it for the smaller one for just the reason you stated. It was daunting.

I just got my smash book a couple of days ago and I am dedicating mine to my weight loss journey. I am working on losing the last 40 pounds ( I am already down 40 ) and thought it would be fun and less stressful if I did it this way instead of a journal where I focus on calories and pounds down and workouts. I want to remember this time but not become obsessed with it, so I am doing a smash book, funny thing is that I find myself putting recipes and snack ideas in mine and thats not very helpful when I am trying to fight the urge to stay away from the junk food....

Carrie, have fun with your book. Hmmm...recipes and snack ideas? That may not be too bad if you list healthy recipes and snack ideas;)

I was thinking the same thing. All the recipes you've used to lose the weight up to now.

i started this today after reading this last night. i guess i am using it as a tool to help with my scrapping. i am just sticking little things in that i might want to scrap. sticking a date in the corner so that i know when that item was gotten and then jotting down things that pop into my head. if i do this right, my thought would be that this would be like a cross between a life 360 and a diary and something that i can look back when i go to scrapping a certain event sometimes years later. make sense? or is this ALL WRONG? input please.

I brought one and i am still not sure of what to do with it. i am thinking of using one to make a picutre book for my sons with pictures of his family ( grandparents, aunts and uncles,etc).

My little guy loves looking at pictures and reading books so i think he will like it.
