What is a Smash Book?
It is an idea started by K and Company and can be purchased at Scrapbook.com for only $12.99.
The spiral books are pre-embellished journals and come with a pen which has a gluestick on one end. The idea is to glue in things like tickets and other small remembrance items, rather than tucking them in your purse or drawer where they would get lost later, and jotting down notes and doodles.
What are you going to smash? That is the general theme to help understand the concept of "smashing" things into a book.
Here is a video to help you understand what a Smash Book is.
There are accessories such as stickers that can be purchased to the books.
I can see this branching out into the hybrid digital scrapbooking world. You can purchase a pen and glue stick for $2.99 and create a personalized book using other skills. For me, I do not have the time to do that and would probably purchase one of K and Company's books, but I think it would be fun.
