I bought this book almost a year ago and I have had so many different uses for it. The handmade cards shown are absolutely beautiful! They break down most of the cards and give you step by step directions, while others just have a picture and name all of the materials ( and their name brands)used. I have never found a better card making book, and believe me... I have been searching! It even dares you to think outside of the box with different step by step card making techniques. I am fully satisfied!

This book takes the format of an Introduction, Carmaker's Toolbox, Techniques, 5 chapters and pages on Card Layouts, Sample Sentiments and Resources. The chapters are titled
1. Birthday's
2. Season's Greetings
3. Other Holidays
4. Special Days
5. Sweet Sentiments

The 1st 21 pages include some basic on card making tools and some techniques. Then the chapters begin. Each chapter has the same basic format: about 10 pages of individual cards, then 1 page on gifts and about 5 pages with card galleries. And each of the galleries has approximately 20+ cards. That is a minimum of 4 cards per page in the gallery. So the gallery sections is where about 100 of these "Fresh" card ideas come from the card galleries.

My two main issues:
* The "Supplies" list accompanying these cards is too general. E.g. Embossing Folder(Provocraft), Spellbinders, Die (Provocraft Cricut). But it does not specify the die/embossing folder. Or Gem(Zva Creative), Gemstones ( KaiserCrafts). No indication on sizing or color.

* Relies very heavily on bought embellishments, which can be expensive if you are on a tight budget.

Overall you would be hard pressed to recreate some of these cards, especially if you are a beginner. I think they tried to pack too much into this book. It would have been better if they lessened the number of cards to say 100 and tried to provide more specific details especially in the Supplies section.

The thing I love most about this book is that I can easily browse through it looking for different ideas for card fronts without having to follow a bunch of instructions on HOW to make them; more pictures than words. The ideas are so versatile and there are many, many possibilities too! If you are a beginner and need lots of instructions then this probably isn’t the book for you because it allows a lot of creative freedom and very few parameters, the sky is the limit (as long as your feet are grounded in basic knowledge)!

I love getting a book of ideas to help inspire me and this one a has a lot to offer. I have sort of copied some of the ideas, but just used what I already had at home. It' something that I can refer back to in the future. This one took the average time to get to me, but it was in perfect condition. I would buy from this seller in the future.

Author gives good explanations about the machine. It is true that you would need many cartridges to do her examples, but I think you could take the idea of her design and use whatever cartridge you would want. Always a way to get around that!!! 4 stars because I would have liked to see more examples of certain techniques.

I’ve been making Cards for quite some time and was just looking for some new inspirations when I bought this book. The book did not provide any new ideas for me, but would be a great book for someone just learning to make greeting cards. It was a very boring book for me, so I passed it on to my niece who’s just learning to make cards. The book will teach you different card basic making techniques; nothing to elaborate. If you are looking for a book to learn special techniques or interactive folds, this is not the book for you.

I really enjoyed this book! The designs are well done and pretty! Kimber is very talented and always showcases some beautiful cards! Only odd thing in the book is that practically none of the cards had a sentiment on the front. Maybe this is a new trend. LOVED IT OVERALL, though!
