Smash and Smash Some More

I'm loving this new Smash book craze...I guess it's a fancy word for scrapbooking, but much more casual - smash whatever you have in your book - it's nice to have a few stickers and embellishments, and of course, washi tape, but you can use print pictures off the computer, cut them out of magazines, and just save whatever you want..it's fun.....

Three of these books have been given to me - those people know who they are - it was very generous.  Each book has a category - starting at the bottom - Retro, Tasty, Nostalgia, Red Doodle and International.  

The papers are so pretty

If you don't like the paper, you can cover it with other scrapbook paper or just smash all over it!

Whatever is important to you - you can smash it!

Shampoo and Beauty Products from the 70's

I loved David Cassidy and the Partridge Family

I bought a can of matches at an antique shop - because I used to collect matches but they're long gone so this is a way to remember that.  


  1. Found you from Smashaholics! Cool pages! I realy like the retro one, fun.

  2. Jill, I love ALL your smash pages! I am so glad you jumped on the smash bandwagon....it's fun, isn't it???

  3. Great job on your Smash pages Jill! I love the one with the match books.
    Thank you so much the Little Golden Books...they arrived in the mail today!

  4. And now I know what a Smash book is! I have 2 black ring books similar to that which I glued pics from my favourite magazines in before I discovered HGTV on the Internet and blogs! That was about 5 years ago. I still have them and reference them once in a while but don't bother adding to them now. I just don't have the time.

  5. I have never heard of this, but it sure looks fun! I need to look into this a bit more.
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Maddie & I were at the craft store the other day and she saw some Smash books and said "look mom, this is what Jill was talking about!". I think I will pick her up a few do work on over the Summer. I love what you have done with yours, especially the Pyrex pages. Did you know that I created that "Be Calm & Pyrex On?".

    So now you have a piece of the Thrifter Sisters in your book!


  7. Wow, Your smashbooks are wonderful! I don't think I'm creative enough to do it, but it sure looks like fun. Thanks for sharing yours. Pam

  8. I've never heard of these before! Now I want to get one!
    I love yours,

  9. Oh these books can become so addicting! I love them. But they are still a little pricey around us. Your pages are great!!

  10. I have a smash book I'm going to do for my trip to Paris in the fall! Yours are so fun to see!

  11. Ok. I have not heard of this. I missed the boat because I've been doing this for years on my own and calling them "encourgement books" and putting in pics of things I love, quotes, etc. I could be a millionaire! LOL I like the size of these. I have binders. I may have to switch.

  12. Those are all awesome Jill!! I love them. So creative.
