The Organized & Inspired Scrapbooker is spiral-bound and divided into three main sections. The first section is a step-by-step process of determining your needs for your organization and inspiration in your space. While seemingly not as in-depth as other books on the topic, it effectively addresses topics through broader concepts without bogging the reader down in distracting detail. In fact, I believe that it is the application of these broader concepts that has helped lead me to the solutions that I needed.
The second section is devoted to sample scrap spaces but is definitely more than just eye candy. Tucked between each room's detailed photographs are descriptions and explanations of the room's set-up and contents. Even if the room's occupant didn't have the same scrapping process as I do, it seemed that there was still a relevant storage or decor idea that I could take from each room.
The third section of Organized and Inspired focuses on projects that scrapbookers can create to store or display their supplies and creations. It is a beautiful reminder that our spaces should not just be practical but should be inspirational as well.
One of the most valuable parts of The Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker is the workbook that is tucked into a pocket in the back of the book. Consisting of a two page quiz and checklist for each of the book's first 11 chapters, the workbook walks the reader through identifying their personal organizational needs and style.Read more ›
I am not sure what more people were expecting.....this book provided the basic nuts and bolts to organization with a lot of creativity and style. It would've been nice to have more complete listings of supplies but I think you should be able to find most items or similar ones at a scrapbook, craft, or office supply store.
Graphically speaking, the book is very well-laid out. There's lot of white space and beautiful pictures. When it comes to actual content, though, I found it to be less than helpful. I read the entire book cover to cover, and got maybe two minor ideas that I plan on using out of it. Maybe I'm just not left-brained enough, but for me, it was not worth the purchase price.
