This book is completely falsely advertised in my opinion. I wanted to learn how to make mini books from scratch and since their subtitle claimed: "construction tips and ideas for creating mini albums from start to finish" I figured that's what I'd learn in this publication. Wrong!Basically it is more of a theme book and a page idea book only instead of 12x12 or 81/2 x 11 pages they make 8x8 or 6x6 pages. So they don't really show how to make mini albums but mini pages (that you would put in store bought albums!) There are only 3 projects for actually making books and those projects are not very original.The scrapbooking style itself is also not one I care much for: very busy with lots of embellishments.Next to each page, the author lists: "construction tips", again very misleading words since no construction is actually involved.If you want to learn how to make original fun scrapbooks from scratch I suggest the "Yes, It's a scrapbook" series by Donna Downey from Simple Scrapbooks publishing. All 3 in the series are great!Definitely don't waste your money on this one!
The pictures in this book are nice. However, I dont think there was enough instructions to actually create the projects in the book.
It is not about mini albums! It is extremely disappointing. Just a few tips and ideas. If you don't know how to make minis, you will certainly not find out from this book. I could have written a better book. This was the worst scrapbooking book I have ever purchased. Deeply disappointed!
This book had so many ideas! I loved the one that incorporated coffee sleeves as an album. I came away with so many plans for albums that I am excited to get started. Most of them are from items that are just tossed in the trash! Love this book.
I love this book! This book has super great ideas for precious mini- albums! Beautiful photos, too! You'll love it!
