For a while now I have had a blank Smash Book in my closet. A Smash Book is a memory book that you are suppose to “smash” all sorts of pictures, ticket stubs, ideas, and pretty things in! There are a bunch of different styles of Smash Books and they each have a variety of pretty patterned pages! My Smash Book sat empty for the longest time because I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to put in it and I didn’t want to mess up the pages!
But finally I had an idea and committed to go with it!! I decided that Instagram photos would be the perfect thing for “smashing” in our Hawaiian adventure memories!
First I printed off my photos: When I uploaded photos to Instagram I emailed them to myself [that’s an option right before you click “done.”] Then I took all the photos and inserted them into a word document. I re-sized them to be 1.75″ — a nice mini size which fit 20 photos on a sheet. Then printed them on white matte cardstock and cut them out [while watching netflix, of course!]
I happen to spot these 2″ x 2″ Glassine envelopes at the craft store [for 40% off] so I snatched them up! The perfect little protector for my mini instagrams!

And who could resist this fun washi tape!
I had also purchased a few Smash Book Accessories as well.
Then I just started smashing!
As you can see my Smash Book has a lot more room in it and I know that Hawaii is going to provide! I will show you guys once the whole book is filled!
