I had the privilege of taking two workshops with Jill Miller at my first-ever scrapbook convention, way back in the year 2000.
Both classes introduced me to techniques we now call "Shabby Chic," all the rage in the scrapbook world at the time of this writing, but totally unheard of nearly three years ago. I wish that all my many scrapbook classes and workshops since those first two had been half as innovative as Jill's.
I was delighted to see that she would be publishing a whole book of her ideas, and waited eagerly for its release, which was quite some time in coming. Now that I have the book, I can say I was not disappointed. It's substantial in size and content, something one does not always get in the world of scrapbooking idea books, about 130 pages long. I don't really understand why it hasn't received more attention, because it certainly deserves it.
The book is lavish in its color printing and detailed close ups of the sample layouts, which cover every page. Jill comes to scrapbooking from the world of stamping arts, and this is THE hot trend in scrapbooking these days. She covers techniques involving the various pearlized powders and shimmering paints, metals including paints and leafing, all manners of distressing your media, and the newly hot textures, including molding paste, embossing and lacquers. Each project sample is clearly labeled beginner, intermediate or advanced, allowing the artist to choose which level with which they feel most comfortable. Materials lists are very clear, as are directions.
My guess as to the reason for its quiet entry into the market is that since it was a long time in production, some of the layouts look a bit "dated" in this trend of the week hobby.

I thought Jill's approach to scrapbooking was refreshing. The book is so well laid out with so much attention to small details, she brings fresh, unique ideas to the technique. The speacial effect ideas are stunning and alot easier to create than you would think! Overall, it is the accessibility of the book that impressed me the most, it is a must-have manual for beginners and pros alike.

Jill Miller demonstrates some great techniques that are not only "do-able" but utilize items you already have in your house. She has some great ideas for not only scrapbooking and cardmaking but for embellishing plain frames for wall art as well. I highly recommend adding this to your scapbooking library

This book offers a very interesting opportunity for stampers to improve there scrapbooking skills and vice-versa. Although scrapbooking is the obvious showcase for the techniques described, any art journalist or card makers repertoire would be extended by the information in this book.

I was particularly impressed with the emphasis on creating your own unique background paper and ideas such as sanding embossed vellums for a whole new look...lovely.

Although the author used scrapbook pages as examples of specific techniques, it is the description of the techniques that represents the real value for money in this book.

Some beginners might find a number of the techniques a bit daunting, but this book would help the determined beginner achieve a whole new level of skill.

I think we have all gone to the store and gotten excited over the newest items in the isles and just had to have them. When we get them home we are not sure just where, when, or how to start with them and then they sit in the drawer. This is the book you need. It is presented and grouped by techniques such as Shimmering pages, Metallics, Inks, Chalks, Textures and more. Each of these chapters explains multiple techniques to achieve the given effect. Each project has a full list of materials needed, a helpful hint and a degree of difficulty. You can't go wrong with this one.
