Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

New tools and materials have been developed for the exploding memory-book market, and it is useful to have instructions for using them. Here are two guides to the craft techniques involved in creating one's own memory scrapbook. Carter's book uses a question-and-answer format with illustrations and examples. The Vanessa-Ann book has chapters and sample projects for techniques such as stitching on paper and using computer graphics. Public libraries will welcome both.

This is one the most informative & well written books I have come across. It has excellent instructions and photographs that guide the beginner scrapbooker through the step by step process of creating well designed and decorated pages. Each project is related to the next, so the reader is always refering to the previous lesson. Ms.Carter is a gifted artist and this books shows her craft.

I just got this book, and it is exactly what I've been looking for. All in color, it gives succinct explanations of scrapbooking techniques such as matting. I know I will refer to this one again and again.

I just picked up this book at the library. It is too outdated to provide a new user guidance with scrapbooking today. Had I decided to start scrapbooking back when this book was published I would have been scared off! It makes the whole process seem incredibly time consuming. This book was written when digital cameras were not being used as much as they are today so all the info on photography (saving negatives, going to a shop to print and resize photos) does not matter anymore. Hand cutting and trimming is no longer necessary as there are great cutting machines out there. The author needs to review the rules for using punctuation, as her samples are rife with errors. She brings up journaling a lot but she leaves out advising you to name the subjects in the photos. A scrapbook documents family history. You, as the author, knows the subjects in the photos. However, when someone of a future generation finds the scrapbook in an old, forgotten box in the attic100 years from now, she isn't going to know who's in those photos.

If you are looking for a good book to learn the basics of scrapbooking, this one is not the one you should start with.

I had borrowed this book from the library. I am always looking for new and different ways to do scrapbooking. What I liked about this book was the fact that they walked you through the basics and had different techniques I hadn't used before.Although I have been scrapbooking for several years, I had not taken any classes to show me how. This book is good for beginnings and for others who have done scrapbooking for years. Just the illustrations of the layouts are worth the money for this book. I liked it so much that I gave my daughter one for a gift too. I really think it is worth buying. Although I first borrowed it from the public library, I realized it was that good that I wanted my own copy.
