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.
