Editorial Reviews Review

With the emphasis on embellishment, Making Scrapbooks presents 75 projects for jazzing up your memory albums (covers as well as interiors) with pop-ups, fancy cutouts, textural adornments, and theme-appropriate artwork and memorabilia. Using all the tricks of the trade--templates, decorative-edge scissors, stencils, stamps, stickers, ribbons, lace, and more--Vanessa-Ann stocks her albums with cute and clever ideas for pages of pictures of babies, pets, holidays, school events, weddings, and ancestors. Many of the projects would also work well as greeting cards or framed presentations. At times the photos are a bit overwhelmed by the decorations, but the ideas are fun and plentiful. --Amy Handy

From Library Journal

Books with creative formats and artistic bindings have always been a specialty of small presses, but now the computer printer enables anyone to make distinctive-looking books. These three volumes are full of ideas and techniques for compiling and binding handmade books in many formats, including "memory books" and personalized scrapbooks. Blake (Making and Decorating Your Own Paper, Sterling, 1995) deals mainly with the mechanics of making covers and bindings. Graphic designer Kropper goes beyond this into hand-decorated pages, unusual formats, and traditional methods such as fore-edge painting. The Vanessa-Ann book is for makers of memory books and includes projects combining photographs and keepsakes with cutout mountings and simple bindings. All three books are good additions to public library collections, complementing one another rather than overlapping.

This book is great if you are new to scrapbooking. It will quickly acquaint you with the techniques needed to make beautiful layouts. After you read through it a few times, however, and practice the designs that interest you the most, this book tends to stay tucked away on the shelf. The techniques and layouts used in this book are simple enough that you can remember it without having to refer to the book. If you only scrapbook a few times a year, this book would be a great buy. However, if you scrapbook often then save yourself the money and just go to the library to find these ideas.

This book I found very informative, and it had some really great ideas. I would have liked it to have had more pictures to go along with the instructions, rather than just the final result showing, but all in all, it was worth the money to get it.
