Someone (Hi, Hayley:) left a comment earlier this week asking what exactly "Smashing" is.
I thought on that for a while.
Figured I'd let it stew for a bit, because it is kinda hard to explain.
Smashing is a lot like scrapbooking. In a sense, it is scrapbooking...and yet, it is really its own thing altogether.
I know a lot of you are not new to Smashing.
But, I figured for those that don't have a Smash book yet, I'd try my best to answer the question.
Here is a scrapbook page I did for my CHA trip to Chicago this past summer.
And here is the Smash page I did on the same trip...
I started to write this post in my head a bunch of times...and realized it is kind of hard to put into words, the differences between the two. Scrapping and Smashing.
But. I can see the difference...
And can explain it better with ideas than words:).

Now, do I smash with a messy hairdo in red platforms sitting on my un-made bed, eating cake out of a mason jar? Well, no. (But that does sound pretty awesome, huh?)...
I guess smashing is just a little less conventional. It can be messy and imperfect and still lovely in its own quirky way. I spend maybe half the time on a Smash page. Because it shouldn't take a ton of time. Just do it. Get your ideas and photos and memories on the page in a moment...
Scrapbooking gives you a polished memory on a page.
Smashing gives you the heart of the memory.
That is my best attempt at explaining the differences between the two- and hopefully answering the question What is a Smash page?
So, smashers and scrapbookers-- which do you prefer? What one comes more naturally for you?
I'm a Smash girl.
I like messiness.
And red platforms.
And cake in jars:).
