OK I have to admit I know (knew) nothing about this latest paper crafting idea.
I did some (A LOT !) of cyber surfing and I think I am now au fait with this, not so new, idea. I suppose it is inevitable that everything gets another go around ( I will not however be wearing fluorescent leg warmers and a ra-ra skirt !)
SMASH books are a 2011 twist on the old sugar paper scrapbooks that we used to glue all our favourite memorabilia in as kids, something my kids have bypassed, being born in the E-age.
Whilst the concept isn’t new I have to say the range of “supplementary” products are very appealing. The main suppliers seem to be EK Success through K&Co although NON of these products are available yet and apparently won’t be available in the UK until July. K&Co also have a dedicated SMASH blog that contains ideas and inspiration for using the SMASH products.
My particular favourites are the rubber bands and the pockets, the glue pen is a cool idea too and I can see alot of these products being used in mini books and layouts too.
I may just spend some creative thinking time cooking up some of my own designs for some SMASH-style printables.
