How to Make a Smash-Style Journal with the Brother Scan n Cut

By Alanda / October 30, 2014

We had a lot of fun making these Smash book style journals. I love the concept of these as you can create any style of page you like and keep adding as many as you like, and they look great. Plus the Brother Scan n Cut in combination with the Brother Canvas software makes it really simple.

I particularly like the pocket pages as you can include ticket stubs, photos, bookmarks or any sort of memory of a trip or special occasion.We also show you different techniques for creating dividers and the cover pages.
