This is a must have for any scrapbooker,card maker or crafter who loves to use anything on hand for crafting. The book has everything from basic to advanced foundations and each project is described in detail from start to finish. Vicki not only has great directions, her pictures also show the steps and she has great examples of what the end result is. This makes a great gift for any crafter. I'd buy any book she writes for crafting.

People - you seriously want this book.

I have a lot of how-to craft and scrapbook books - and this is one of the best books I have ever seen. The ideas are great and the instructions are clear and concise!! Even if you didn't do any crafting - it is very easy to follow - and the photos are FAB!

I just got this awesome book in the mail about a week ago and it is mind blowing! The author has the talent to obtain art from such ordinary products, I will definitely be putting a lot into practice from the ideas of the book. Thanks to this book, I have changed my vision of how to do scrap booking and any other crafty projects. I cannot wait to continue to do a couple of layouts with the ideas from this book. I love the illustrations, step by step explanation and the extra tips on each project. Well organized by topics and techniques. Be prepared to be learn a lot, specially out of the box! This book is a must have!!

Also, if you have the opportunity to take a class with the author, DO SO!!, it is a great learning experience and loads of fun.

I bought this after downloading the preview to my Kindle. After reading the preview, I was really looking forward to getting my hands on the actual book. There is something about having a book in your hands that is way more satisfying than reading a preview or even reading the actual book on your Kindle. I had really high hopes that the material offered after the preview would be great. I wasn't disappointed when I finally held the book in my hands, but I also didn't have an "Oh, wow" moment when I finally had the book. I was hoping for some mixed media techniques that would inspire me in working in my art journal. There's some good stuff here, and some interesting suggestions and techniques that I'll probably play with. But it just wasn't what I was hoping for based on the preview. If you need some ideas about how to proceed with creating and embellishing a scrapbook, or even if you're looking for some new techniques that you can adapt and use in your art journal, there are at least a couple of things that would be worth your time to check out and experiment with.

I've bought a lot of scrapbooking idea books, but this includes some things I haven't tried. It is a great resource for paper crafters of all levels and I am excited to stretch my techniques. I admire Vicki's work that I've seen on scrapbooking websites and this book brings in the talents of many others as well. I'm going to need to get off the computer and start working on some of the ideas in this book!

The project ideas in here are extremely generic, and the artwork is totally bland scrapbook-style sentiment stuff. Not anywhere close to what I find interesting. There are a few interesting techniques, but the extremely bland 'artwork' they're demonstrated with is so uninspiring I don't even want to try them.
