If you can't get enough of smash books, check out my review of Mahe Zehra Husain's newest e-book, The Ultimate Guide to Smash Books, Smashing and Making Your Own Upcycled Smash Books, then read to the end to learn how to receive your own free copy, as well as The Ultimate Guide to Upcycling and a series of video classes on upcycling paint chips into greeting cards

Smash books are quicker, easier, and more creatively amenable to recycled components than traditional scrapbooks can be, and frankly I much prefer the look of a smash book to that of your typical carefully engineered scrapbook. If you'd like some more examples, then please feel free to take a look below at my own upcycled smash book--it's by no means perfect, but the beauty of a smash book is that it isn't meant to be perfect. Instead, it's meant to be meaningful, fun, crafted with lots of upcycled materials and stash components, and beloved by its recipient
