1,2,3 Smashes.

I thought it would be fun to share a Smash page for each of my loves...

I like to use ribbon on my pages.  I lay it flat, apply two sided tape, and then press it down the length of the page-- usually with a little extra on each end.  I think it's pretty to have little papers, ribbons, and material hanging out of the books.  They look worn and loved that way.  
Which they are:).

And I have officially collected every possible book.  The only one I haven't actually used yet is the green one.  The new big ones are my favorites.  But I think the regular size books are just the cutest lined up along a shelf.  I want to find a fun way to incorporate them into my craft area decor...so they add a pop of color and are easily pulled down and enjoyed!

Where do you keep your journals/scrapbooks/Smash books??
Do you allow others to peek through them?

  7. These pages are gorgeous keepsakes & I love your idea with the ribbon. I love your freedom in creating with them - it's a very precious gift. As a child I kept journals & then it became a compulsive habit to the exclusion of other things.......thankfully under control these days thanks to medication. The love I can see in your creating is beautiful............thank you for making me smile!

  8. Gorgeous pages - as yet I haven't attempted anything like this, all of my boy's pics were taken before we owned a digital camera. But they are all up in the loft and I am planning on getting someone to get them for me, I'm inspired to make books for myself to keep. I love the list you wrote detailed what Niamh played at 8, love that! Thanks for sharing. Zo xx

  10. I love your pages. What a great family you have.

    I keep my Smash books right in the middle of all my crafty space, which is right in the middle of my living room. So anyone is able to look through it.

  11. I only have one SMASH book (orange) for far and the only ones interested in seeing them are my kids, and yes I let them. I really would like for them to be interested in just being creative and free to be creative. Not only my daughter but my son too. You have a beautiful family and I love your pages. Very Creative. TFS

  12. I totally just bought a green smash book and my hubs bought the orange. I'd like to buy them all as well as the mini version. (And maybe the entire line of stuff to go with them.)

  16. I have tucked many things into my red Smash book! I bought the orange one recently, though it's still pristine. My red one lives right next to my chair in the FR. I LOVE having a place to stash the comics I must keep, bits of candy wrappers and many other random things!

    I LOVE the new baby and wedding books - though I really wish they'd put them out in the smaller size. I haven't bought either yet, though I am thinking about it. Seriously. On my "must buy NOW" list, to be taken to various stores as soon as I find a new job!
