Four and a half stars, really. I'll explain that in a moment.
I have never watched Sandi Genovese's cable tv show on scrapbooking, so I was a little hesitant to purchase Three Dimensional Scrapbooks. Now that I have had a chance to read it however I'm glad that I took the risk; the page designs inside are a dream come true for somebody at my intermediate experience level with a taste for artistic, understated design.
Sandi presents us with some very gorgeous layouts that involve elements slightly raised from the background. These elements could be titles, accents, photos or even journaling blocks. A few of the pages merely have the effective illusion of dimension by the creative use of papers. The color choices are predominately soft and toned down (although any of the layouts can be recreated with any color scheme the scrapbooker wishes). Texture is incorporated into many of the pages using fibers, fabric, cords etc. The result is a design that looks like it's begging for you to reach out and touch it, just to make sure it is real.
The book is divided into chapters on Basics, Paper, Fabric, Metal, Keepsakes, Beads & Baubles, and Exotic Elements. I found that there is a nice balance of techniques that could be handcrafted with common scrapbooking materials as well as the convenient store-bought variety. I also recognized several coordinated designer papers in the projects from the likes of Anna Griffin and Bazzil - making it very easy to achieve that perfect color and pattern mix. And although many of the pages are involved works of art that have to be crafted slowly and carefully, several of the pages could be put together quickly by somebody with a small bit of experience already under her belt. In all, this book is very encouraging and inspiring.

I'm not really into 3D scrapbooks because I thought that it would take up too much space in my albums. But I bought this book because I figured I could make gifts and the reviews were great. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that most of the pages don't really protrude too much and are all very usable in my scrapbooks. Plus, you can tweak some of the ideas if you'd like more of a 2D page. All the layout ideas are beautiful, innovative and attainable. I've been scrapping for 5 years and I think these ideas are for beginners and "pros" alike. I don't have alot of time to scrap but these layouts are beautiful and fairly easy and quick to do. I also really liked that each page is a different layout idea and there are instructions for each layout. I actually bought this book before I realized that you can watch Sandi Genovese on Scrapbooking ( on DIYnetwork ). So it was a pleasant surprise to see a "familiar face". I hope this was helpful to you and HAPPY SCRAPPIN'.

This is an execellent book. It has a lot of techniques for adding texture without a lot of bulk on your scrapbook pages.

The photography of the pages are excellent also. I love a book that shows the finished page in a nice size so I can see all the details that were added without having to use a magnifying glass.

I am starting a scrapbook for my first child and came across this book. I am so glad I bought it. I've gotten alot of scrapbooking ideas for my little girl's upcoming holidays and special events.

The various layouts are just beautiful and elegant. Even the simplest layout was well done. I've looked at plenty of how-to books but nothing came close to this one. Most of the layouts in other books looked tacky and unappealing.

Looking forward to more of her books!
