Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Light on frills, heavy on informative text, this handbook will help beginners and adepts alike make their scrapbooks everything they want them to be. Hundreds of tips on all aspects of the craft lead us through every step, from deciding on a theme and designing the page to journaling, adding mementos, even making over an old album assembled before you knew how to do it properly. The lengthy thematic section offers 30 subject ideas, including scrapbooks for cooks, gardeners, sports enthusiasts, theatergoers, genealogists, pet lovers, and travelers, or those celebrating special occasions. There's also information on "Scrapbook Socials"--organizing scrapbook clubs to turn a solitary creative pursuit into a fun collective endeavor. Other scrapbooking guides may be prettier (this has some black-and-white illustrations and diagrams, but no color), but few are this comprehensive. --Amy Handy

This book gives excellent, step by step instructions on how to start scrapbooking. Although it is in black and white, the ideas for scrapbook themes and the layout examples are unique and inspiring. The section on design is very helpful.

This guide by the Scrapbook Guild does not have colorful, splashy layouts to study. Rather, it contains solid information for those interested in this growing hobby, with enough inspiration to encourage the reader to create her own unique albums.
Basic terminology and supplies are covered, and principles of good design are thoroughly explained. Several ideas for unique albums are included, such as a reading group album or theater event album. Those readers who feel that only those with kids can create these works of art, take heart. They will find much to compel them to document their own interests as well.

This book offers many styles of scrapbooking for the golfer, cook, artist, etc. Although all graphics are in black and white, the charm of the scrapbooks illustrated still inspires.
