SMASH* Adventures Part 7 - All About The Craze

Evening all!

I thought i'd pop by and share a little more of my SMASH* adventures with you! I must admit i'm not far done with my Retro Blue folio now i've even started (well i say started) not so nearly finished with the orange folio either now lol i've gone and delved right into my books! I've had so many lovely e-mails from my followers and friends asking me lots of questions about my books and things about them so i thought i'd do a little Q&A post!


Where do you buy your SMASH* Books from?
There are quite a few craft companies here in the UK that stock SMASH* such as...
*Crafts u love
*Oyster Stamps
*Craft Obsessions
*Craft Island

Though my personal choice is Oyster Stamps they're not only the cheapest but also there customer service is fantastic!


What about accessories?

I do use the SMASH* accessories alongside my books however i find myself digging to the bottom of drawers in my craftroom for those embellishments i brought years ago that haven't seen daylight for so long. You can use virtually anything crafty in your books! here's a few ideas:

*Peel offs
*Stickers
*Journal pages/tags
*Ribbons and scrap papers
the list is endless really!!!


What do I SMASH* ????

Anything Really tho i have one of each colour theme SMASH* book now so i've decieded to keep each book on a topic.... here's an idea of what i mean...
*Retro blue folio - All About Me
*Simple Orange folio - Craft Inspiration
etc etc you can keep your smash* books on any type of theme! Here's a few piccys i've not shown before of my blue folio...




Can I make my own????
I don't see why not some double sided papers and a bind it all will be a must or something similar, tho i prefer them ready done else i wouldnt want to cover up some beautiful papers!!! haha!!

What's my favourite colour Book????

Your all waiting for me to say PINK right?? well... sorry it's not acutally my favourite I absolutly love the Doodle Red Folio and i'm dredding starting that one as i love all the papers i dont wanna cover them hehe!!!


Is it for me????
Well... i've tried the 6x6, 8x8 and 12x12 scrapbooking and soooo can't do it not like those american's who simply create some works of art!!! this is perfect for me there's no right or wrong way of doing it and i love it!!! Smash*ing is all about doing it your way not others! sure you can grab ideas.... see even i do... here's some i created from inspiration from others...



See how i mean you can smash anything from recipets to labels to postcards to anything!!! possiblities are endless!!!!

Do i have to compleate it all in one go???
NOOOOOOOO!!! smash* Is designed to be picked up put down smash in smash out n about! you take it at your pace!!

Where can i get cool images???

2 Lil messages from my bloggy friends!:

I have a Smash album and although I love the concept, I am a little intimidated. I have started and plan to work on it this year. It's funny since I love scrapping and card making and love the fact that there are NO rules when it comes to those crafts. I will just have to run at it and see what happens. Thanks for all the advice! :)

Hey lil sis
Loving the smash books and most of all the pinks accents here and there.
I actually have a "smash" book I did when I was a teenager-I won't tell you what year it is from...lol
I saved everything and was into animals ,I laugh every time I look through it.
I really should take the time to start a new one.
Thanks for sharing
Oh yea I love Pinterest for inspiration.
Hugs sweetie
