I’ve started a Smash Book

I’m not sure how many of you will know about the Smash Book by K&Co but I guess some of you will have heard about them, basically it is somewhere that you can write a scrappy journal about likes and dislikes and general things you have going on, a bit of a diary if you like but one that you craft together.

This is mine I got my Smash Book at Ribbon Carousel

You get a pen and glue stick loads of ideas and there is loads of Smash book embellishments you can get.

This is a few embellishments that I have.

So next up is to decide what you want to journal about,  thought that I would write about me starting cycling.

So this is my first page giving some of the goals that I’d like to achieve.

The possibilities are endless, they even have a dedicated blog for inspiration. http://www.smashstoriesblog.com/

I happen to be a little OCD I think as I just can’t bring myself to take the cover wrapping off the book yet.

I love the Queen reference! I can't wait to see what you do with your Smash Book. I just use mine to slap in those little bits you don't otherwise know what to do with. I know, as a paper crafter it's shameful!

I've seen these, tempted but never purchased one. I might get two now and give one to our daughter.

Love your starting pages.
