I loved this book for many reasons. One, it showed designs that were graphically clean, and put the emphasis on your photographs. Two, the journaling tips are great. Just reading the author's journaling blocks gave me great ideas for my own, and I have done so much more journaling since reading this book. Three, the book lets you into secrets for doing great color combos. Four, I got my start in digital scrapping from this book. Now instead of buying stickers, I print my titles and journaling directly on the page. Five, Not only does the book show you great layouts, it gives you the mental tools to create your OWN great layouts. Which, to me, is key. Who wants to copy all the time? Who wants to shop for this or that "perfect" element all the time? Not me! I'd rather know how to use my computer, my paper and my photos to create great looking pages. I have done many terrific pages with basically solid colored cardstock, my photos, and some thought about the design and type font. For the beginner or intermediate scrapper who likes a clean, simple look, this book is indispensable.
She has the right perspective on scrapbooking and encourages the reader to keep it simple but make it fun! If you follow the advice in this book you will see a major improvement in your own page designs.
I highly recommend it!

Technically she does concentrate on very clean cut layouts with not too many embellishments or store bought items besides cardstock which is great because we don't really want to spend $20 on each page we make. Also great photos.
I'm happy with my purchase especially at the price offered here!
