Smash Books have become very popular and the newest scrappy craze. They are basically journals, but what I like about them is that they encourage your creative side as well as jotting down your thoughts. I made these books for my sisters. I used a sketching pad that I bought at Michaels, my friend Suzanne shared this idea, thanks Suzanne. I like them because the paper is blank and thicker than a composition book, great for gluing, embellishing & writing. I covered the front, added embellishments and started a few of the pages for them.
