Heidi's book has changed my approach. Writing in a lighthearted, conversational tone, Heidi gives several good reasons for using your own handwriting on your scrapbook pages to make them personal. The best part, though, is the workbook full of exercises designed to spark your creativity and build your confidence in using your own handwriting. All the tools you need to complete the exercises are included in the kit, so as soon as you finish reading a chapter you can turn to the workbook and immediately put what you've learned into practice.
The "book" shown above is actually a tri-fold kit, including the spiral bound book by Heidi, a spiral-bound workbook with exercises corresponding to each chapter, and a set of writing tools including a mechanical pencil, white eraser, .5mm black pigma pen, and a ruler. It folds up neatly, with an elastic band to hold it together.
I have rediscovered the joy of the creative process through reading and using Heidi's book!
Heidi's book is a book I'd rather borrow from a library than have it in my personal inventory. Its worth a look-see but not worth spending the $. Save that for Debra Beagle's book.
The other reviewer covered all the structure of the book, whats included etc so I won't repeat myself. Love this Book!
All in all, it's a fun book to have and to play around with, but it's not going to turn you into a creator of illuminated manuscripts overnight.
It's a cute, feel-good guide to practicing and improving your own handwriting so that you feel more confident about it. It's NOT a guide on how to write in Heidi Swapp's style or any other style but your own.
I knew that from the title, so that isn't the problem. It just doesn't grab me or inspire me to use it. It's too school-girlish.
I tried using it a couple of times, was bored and now it just sits on my shelf. I've had more fun and inspiration just doodling on my own. Will try to sell it at my next rummage sale or donate it to my local library.
If you want guided practice with your own handwriting with lots of positive encouragement from afar, then get it if you can find it on sale cheap. It probably won't be worth the full price to most people.
