Assuming DS(18) does enough work to get the grades he needs I wonder what the chances are of him completing one of these during Uni? I'm guessing 0

Okay friends! I finally finished my homemade version of a Smash book for DD to take to Costa Rica with her next week. I used a spiral bound notebook I bought at Target.... I liked the cover and the pages and discovered that it was made of banana leaf paper from Costa Rica! So it was a slam dunk (despite the very lightweight pages).

I bought some legit "Smash book" pieces, plus a bunch of other odds and ends. I tried to make every page have a slightly different feel.... some are "travel-y" some are vintage, some are "teen-ish". I left room for some photos later plus journaling to go with the photos. I used some pockets for "travel treasures". I tried to use a few prompts to get her to talk about more than just "today we went to see.....".

She LOVED IT! I did take photos and will try to get them uploaded later today............P

Okay..... I'll share some pictures here. Some of the pages only contain a rubber stamp or two for fun..... some have stickers, journaling boxes and prompts, pockets, trinkets, etc.

First up is the cover..... left it pretty much as-is.... added a rubber stamp of DD first initial and some pretty tropical ribbons to the binding.



Inside front cover just a few travel stickers plus a real Smash book sticker on page one.



A few of the inside pages..... including pages for photos and little notes, etc.












Inside back cover I included part of the label that came with the notebook stating its origins in CR.




Back cover.... just has a fun looking name label.

Anyhow...... that isn't every page, but you get the idea. It looks pretty blank now, but I'm HOPING that it will be full of notes and sketches and scribbles and STUFF when DD returns from CR. ..........................P

My mum gave me a "ladies journal" for Christmas - its really just a notebook with pictures of Regency ladies on the front, but I might use that for my trip in July - good idea to customise the pages in advance

At the last scrapbooking night two friends were talking about this and one had hers with her. She made her own after watching a few youtube videos. We are in the process of building a house. Although I'll probably do a mini album of the house building process, it won't be elaborate. The next day after scrapbooking I dragged out all my stuff and put one together for our house building. It is a great place to tack all the pamphlets and snipets of things that I have been collecting. I will add pictures to it here or there, but it's more about a gathering place for all the things I wouldn't put in my scrapbook, but is relavent to our building.



This is it in pieces. I have it put together with binder rings.

Plan on doing one for Disney for sure!

That's what I want - a place for all those bits and pieces I collect along the way that end up in a folder as I don't want to lose them

How heavy should the paper be, do you think? Ordinary notebook (not a cheap one!) OK?

That was my biggest concern with the notebook I bought. The paper seemed really flimsy and I was concerned that it wouldn't hold up to the heavy stuff I was sticking to it. I ended up doubling up some of the pages. I used permanent adhesive and stuck two pages together. It was a bit of "fussy" work, making sure that the pages lined up properly and didn't look strange. But I think it worked. I didn't do it with every page, just the ones where I had stuck something heavy.

Good luck.......................P

I used cardboard that came with album refills and altered it with paper, ink and stickers. For the inside of the smash book, I cut paper to size and hole punched it. I didn't want to order a premade smash book, because I saw it as an opportunity to clear out my paper stash and use the stuff that was sitting for years and years.

My pages are sturdy because I am using cardstock and adding paper to it. It is a work in progress that will evolve as I add to it.

No rules! Make it yours!

Great idea to use up your stash! ..............P

Smash book

Great thread. I am planning on making a smash book for my Disney Cruise in May and have been gathering paper and stickers. I have an original pink smash book but I want to really have a specific Disney one for this trip so I will try to make one myself. I don't know if I will use binder rings or my cinch. Any tips or suggestions on what to include or how to put it together would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Cathie
