Smash Books + A GIVEAWAY!

Have you ever heard of Smash Books?
I hadn’t either but I would see all the fun stuff for them at the craft store.

I am a scrapbook lover at heart but can’t seem to find the time to actually sit down and do it.
I am WAY behind on Baby books for my kids, by like 6 years! 😛

I did some research into what the Smash Book is all about and..

So much so that I picked one up and want to give


So what is a Smash book?

Basically its a scrapbook for the:
“I’m to busy”
“Non-creative thinker”
It’s a fast, easy and an instant scrapbook that you can do as you go.

Some examples include moving to another state, a vacation, recipes, the possibilities are endless!

I think the best thing I like about them is that it doesn’t have to be perfect, its all smashed in {see what I did there 😉 } haphazardly with no rhyme or reason.

I will be doing one for our trip to the Oregon Coast this summer.  It will be the first time my kids see the ocean.  Check back to see my finished book!

The kit comes with everything you need to make the book.  Of course there are extras you can buy to spruce up your book if you like.


 Here is what comes in the kit {that I got}:
~1 Folio with photo sleeves
~ 1 SMASHstick pen & glue {one side pen, one side glue!}
~ 1 Elastic pen band {place to hold the pen}
~ 70 Sticky notes
~1 List pad
~1 Wallet folio
~ 2 Paper clips
~8 Sticker strips
~1 Roll of tape
~1 Reusable, decorative bag

To get started all you have to do is sit down at the end of your day and jot down some info on what happen.
Look back through the photos you took to help you decide what to write.  Leave space for the photos you want to add once you are ready.

If you like instant results check out this little cutie, The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera.

It’s a mini Polaroid for instant photos on the go!
Comes in a variety of colors and is on sale through Amazon 🙂
{Reg Price at Michael’s is $119.99}

Right now on Amazon all of their SMASH Book related stuff is on sale!
Go check out all the extra stuff that is out there! 🙂
