I was at my local Michaels over the weekend and saw that their brand, Recollections, has produced a smashbook-daily journal type book called Creative Chaos. They are 3-ring binders that look very similar to smash books on the outside. The inside pages are also remininscent of smashbooks. They have a planner and other different themes. I passed on the book but fell in love with the accessories - neat envelopes, pockets and frames. There was also a rack of Hello Kitty-themed books and accessories. I'm not interested in those, though, but for people who like the Hello Kitty theme, it may be something you'll want to take a look at. Has anyone else seen these?

I saw the Recollections Creative Chaos products, and really loved them! I almost bought the album with the text print spine and the white sunburst on the cover, but decided to wait. There were a pile of embellishments I was tempted by. However, they were not on sale and I was at the store with a coupon to use on something else. Next time!

I got a glance at them on an endcap last weekend. However, the lady standing directly in front of the display was talking vigorously and loudly to herself. I decided not to interfere in her moment and moved on, LOL. Was it one of you? She seemed to like them quite a lot!

I have not seen these in my store. Sounds interesting. I'll have to go back and look again.

I already used the polaroid frames and pockets on two layouts yesterday. The frames look really nice when embossed!

I got a binder and the journaling cards and the paper pad and I have to warn you, the paper in the pad doesn't fit right in the binder. I had to trim it and re-punch the holes to make the papers even with the rest of the book.

I saw those this weekend. I like them so much better than SMASH books, and the accessories are really cute and inexpensive. Bought several to use in project life

I saw those the other day and almost bought some! Their embellies are very similar to the Smash ones, but $1 or so cheaper.

I like the 3-ring binder better than the spiral bound Smash,so you can add pages. I have a binder by Ditto that I got a year before Smash stuff came out. Works great for our vacation stuff.

I purchased a pack of the long, kraft-colored envelopes; a pack of three pockets, different styles and colors; and something else but I can't remember what it was at the moment. I have an MS binder and the Creative Chaos accessories fit perfectly in it!

I went to M's today and they had them out. Really cute. I agree I like them much better the the SMASH books. The travel one I almost bought. The papers are so cute, but then I couldn't really think what I would do with it. They had 2 different sizes. A notebook size for $20 and a smaller size for $15, but everything was 40% off.

My store had almost everything on sale for 40% off. I bought a 6 x 6 Christmas paper pack by Recollections with the most beautiful paper. They had 2 packs taped together and sold as one for 40% off.

I haven't seen them yet, my Michael's always seems to be a few steps behind. I'll definitely keep my eye out for them, thanks!

I thought so. It looked like they were trying to get rid of all their Christmas stuff as quickly as they can. I noticied they really didn't have as much as they did last year. All the Christmas Martha Stewart was 40% off also. When her sticker sheets are like $5 - $6 that was a good deal also.

I picked up several, including one of the Hello Kitty books, for my nieces for Christmas. They are so cute, I may go back and get myself one.

omg! i just saw those last night!

passed on them, for now, but loved the binders and the clear dividers with the designs - so pretty!

has anyone seen any page protectors that would fit them?

i think it'd make an awesome journal or inspiration book or...

instead, i brought home a mme 6x6 chevron pad and a stamp. lol...


I have an MS binder and the Creative Chaos accessories fit perfectly in it!


awesome! i like the ms binders.
