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.

By K. Fournier on March 19, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This is a good book for beginners in that it covers all the basics without getting too fancy. It covers techniques such as using decorative edge scissors, corner and craft punches, how to use die-cuts and creative lettering, rubber stamps and embossing. My only BIG complaint is that it is always refering to another technique on another page, so I constantly have to flip back and forth. For example, in Technique 9 (how to use die-cuts, the first 3 steps refer to other techniques. Aggravating! Otherwise, good book for BEGINNERS!

Being a newbie and excited to begin my 1st book Ms. Carter's instructions has helped me immensely. I particularly liked the "list" of needed items and her design tips. Thanks, Ms. Carter.
