I bought 3 of these at once (Red-doodle, blue and green). I was amazed at the high quality of the paper! It's as if you went through the recycling bin to find paper for your album: totally unique pages, some of which have things that can be used as "starters" for the page, however, if you don't want to use them, simply cover them up! Also, if you didn't know, the inside of each book is unique and goes with the theme of the book.
I bought two of them as gifts for my 11 and 14 year old nieces. Hopefully they will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed mine already.
My only complaint is that scrapbook.com (local stores too) can't keep the add-ons in stock! So I added brads and paper-clips from other lines to the gifts instead of the pockets and washi tape that I wanted from Smash.
I saw the video for this on youtube and was hooked! I bought one (pink of course) and wow, what a neat concept! The attached pen doubles as glue on the other end. We're not talking plain pages here either, they are all different and super fun looking.
There are accessories (pockets, stamp, bookmarks) and this is the perfect book to have with you during your travels this summer. I just added tickets from a museum and a movie and my fortune from a fortune cookie yesterday (it was a good one)! If you like to journal and have keepsakes, this is the SMASHing product for you!
