From Amazon.com
Light on frills, heavy on informative text, this handbook will help beginners and adepts alike make their scrapbooks everything they want them to be. Hundreds of tips on all aspects of the craft lead us through every step, from deciding on a theme and designing the page to journaling, adding mementos, even making over an old album assembled before you knew how to do it properly. The lengthy thematic section offers 30 subject ideas, including scrapbooks for cooks, gardeners, sports enthusiasts, theatergoers, genealogists, pet lovers, and travelers, or those celebrating special occasions. There's also information on "Scrapbook Socials"--organizing scrapbook clubs to turn a solitary creative pursuit into a fun collective endeavor. Other scrapbooking guides may be prettier (this has some black-and-white illustrations and diagrams, but no color), but few are this comprehensive. --Amy Handy
