Smash books are the latest trend in scrapbooking. Introduced earlier this year by K&Company, this style is reminiscent of notebooks you may have kept in high school or college. It is a very free flow style of scrapbooking. There are no rules. The idea is to scrap, or "smash" as you go. Included with the Smash book is a combo pen that has glue on one end and black ink for writing on the other. In addition to a wire bound book there are several embellishments that can be purchased to dress up your pages. It's a cute idea for the young at heart and especially for those who are new to scrapbooking or the experienced scrapbooker looking for a non-traditional album.
They are so popular that local stores are having a hard time keeping them on the shelves. Bonnie at Stamping To See You receives weekly shipments and is getting more Smash items with every delivery. Archivers also carries the Smash line and you can select from the many embellishments available. At Archivers you can put your name on a waiting list to get the books and Stamping To See You will accept pre-payment orders.
