Click here ...Smash Books were introduced last year, but I never bought one. I thought about buying one with a 50% off coupon, as I liked a lot of the pages in the books that I saw in Michael's. But, there were other things that I always wanted to buy more with my coupon, and so I never did buy one.
What I liked most about the Smash book was there was a holder for a pen/stick that has a pen on one end and a glue stick on the other end. I really just wanted the pen, because I thought I could make my own Smash book using a composition notebook and attach a piece of wide elastic with grommets to hold a pen to the edge.
Anyway, today when I took a ride to Michael's I noticed a large display on an end cap in the scrapbook section they had Smash books with different colored bindings. Before Christmas Michael's had Smash books, but only a small display. Today there were also lots of accessories to use in a Smash book...AND...lo and behold...the pens/sticks were being sold separately for $2.99. I couldn't resist and I bought a pen than writes in black. Now, I can decorate a composition notebook and make my own Smash book that I will keep in the car if I want. I got a coupon for next week with my purchase that is for 50% off.
Did you buy a Smash book when they first came out? Or have you made your own? I keep tickets, receipts, brochures, maps, business cards, whatever and also photos that I have taken with my digital camera. The items will be glued into my book. Kind of an easy journaling/scrapbooking method. So, I guess another project is added to my to do list.
