I bought this book almost a year ago and I have had so many different uses for it. The handmade cards shown are absolutely beautiful! They break down most of the cards and give you step by step directions, while others just have a picture and name all of the materials ( and their name brands)used. I have never found a better card making book, and believe me... I have been searching! It even dares you to think outside of the box with different step by step card making techniques. I am fully satisfied!

This book takes the format of an Introduction, Carmaker's Toolbox, Techniques, 5 chapters and pages on Card Layouts, Sample Sentiments and Resources. The chapters are titled
1. Birthday's
2. Season's Greetings
3. Other Holidays
4. Special Days
5. Sweet Sentiments

The 1st 21 pages include some basic on card making tools and some techniques. Then the chapters begin. Each chapter has the same basic format: about 10 pages of individual cards, then 1 page on gifts and about 5 pages with card galleries. And each of the galleries has approximately 20+ cards. That is a minimum of 4 cards per page in the gallery. So the gallery sections is where about 100 of these "Fresh" card ideas come from the card galleries.

My two main issues:
* The "Supplies" list accompanying these cards is too general. E.g. Embossing Folder(Provocraft), Spellbinders, Die (Provocraft Cricut). But it does not specify the die/embossing folder. Or Gem(Zva Creative), Gemstones ( KaiserCrafts). No indication on sizing or color.

* Relies very heavily on bought embellishments, which can be expensive if you are on a tight budget.

Overall you would be hard pressed to recreate some of these cards, especially if you are a beginner. I think they tried to pack too much into this book. It would have been better if they lessened the number of cards to say 100 and tried to provide more specific details especially in the Supplies section.

I really enjoyed this book! The designs are well done and pretty! Kimber is very talented and always showcases some beautiful cards! Only odd thing in the book is that practically none of the cards had a sentiment on the front. Maybe this is a new trend. LOVED IT OVERALL, though!

In addition to showing pictures of handmade cards, this book has instructions for some of the cards and some technique information. It has some good information especially for people just getting started with card making, but has plenty of examples for the more advanced card maker. I'm glad that I purchased this book.

I love getting a book of ideas to help inspire me and this one a has a lot to offer. I have sort of copied some of the ideas, but just used what I already had at home. It' something that I can refer back to in the future. This one took the average time to get to me, but it was in perfect condition. I would buy from this seller in the future.

I borrowed this book for my Kindle as a Prime member. Although the book contains some great card ideas, i was disappointed that a large number of projects had no info about techniques or how a certain embellishment was created. Also, the card names and details were often out of order, when viewed in both landscape and portrait mode. I'm not sure what the problem is, but no doubt this situation doesn't exist in the physical book format,or the reviews would not have been quite as positive.
