The format of the book is nice with the layouts being displayed in a nice format with large pictures so you can see all the details. The materials listings are lacking any detail. Most read, Materials Used: Marker, stickers, decorative ruler. What COLOR marker? Which stickers?
On a personal note, there are many beautiful photos used for the layouts, but I noticed no attempt to match the color scheme of the layout with that of the pictures, nor do some of the designs go with the general theme of the pictures. There are some great beach photos on a layout titled "PARTY". Huh? Or the excellent black & white heritage photo with the title "Over the Hill" and dancing skeleton stickers. I think a little more thought could have gone into coordinating layouts more appropriate to these photos. It would also be better in a spiral bound format rather than a hardcover so that users can leave the book open while copying the page.
If you are a long time scrapper or fan of CM idea books, then don't bother. There is nothing really innovative or "fresh" in this book. This might be good for a beginner or someone who is a fan of sticker art.
As negative as my review sounds, these are just my honest thoughts and impressions. I still give it 3 stars for the few ideas I did get and because of the large photos of the layouts, but there's definitely room to improve.
However, what the author does with her scant few tools is wonderful, and she puts together some really nice-looking sticker collages. I was expecting more than just stickers & die-cuts, but I got a few ideas from the book.
If it sounds at all interesting, I would suggest you check it out at the library, flip through it to get some ideas, and then return it to the library. Spend your $25 on stuff for your scrapbook.
