This book is amazing to me, the first time scrapbooker. Inside this book are excellent pictures and charts that SHOW YOU how to make a beautiful and effective and meaningful scrapbook. What I like best is her plan for the scrapbook (she took a picture of her actual design plan for her personal scrapbook and it is shown in the book). In this picture (plan) she shows the subject and the pictures (and descriptions) that will be in the actual finished scrapbook. This helped me understand how to create a scrapbook well!

Also, I like that she explains how to place the pictures that you want to have in the scrapbook in a folder on your computer called Scrapbook Name Folder. This will organize the pictures and the computer will have folder where one can send pictures to others online. What a terrific idea.

This book is very easy to read and understand as it is for the beginner, yet it is written so well with the unique information, I think that if you have created a Scrapbook before, this book may help you create your next Scrapbook even better!

Highly recommend this book to all!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for the beginner scrap booker April 22, 2014

I received a copy of the e-book for my honest review.

I have tried to scrapbook once, and failed. Well not so much failed as I wasn't properly equipped or prepared for the project. Had I had a copy of this book, I would have probably made a better first scrapbook! Phyllis Matthews has put together a simple yet informative book on the basics of scrapbooking. Instead of feeling like a strict instructor is giving you step by step instructions, Phyllis's tone is more of a friend teaching you her favorite hobby.

I pulled two important lessons from this book; one I knew and one I wish I had known before. First, Phyllis reminds the reader that scrapbooks don't have to be filled with just pictures. Tickets, maps, information pamphlets and the like are perfect fillers for a scrapbook. I knew this going into my attempt and used post cards and other materials from my trip.

The second lesson is the plan your scrapbook before you start the actual work. Phyllis includes a sample plan that she used for one of her own scrapbooks. I wish I had known or even thought to have done something like this, it's a perfect planning idea. As an author I would never start a story without even the simplest of outlines, why would I go into a craft project without a plan. (I do plan my craft projects now, but when I did my scrapbook attempt I wasn't yet as crafty as I am now!)

Still trying to get used to the how to books on Kindle. i should probably stick with novels and reference type books. It is harder for me to work with a Kindle copy of the book, but I have more information now than when I started.
