I have more than a dozen paper craft books and this is by far the best I've tried. Many paper craft books give a list of materials and a couple very broad directions. This book is dfferent in that it presents its projects by skill group, i.e. rubber stamping, heat embossing, sewing, etc. There are sections in this book that I have never even heard of before like the shaving cream method. In general each chapter starts with an in depth instruction on the topic and then offers several different projects using that process. Great for beginners and more advanced crafters.
This book is exceptionally great because you're doing more than just rubber stamping, it's rubber stamping and beyond.The book is well done, has lots of ideas and explains each creation very well. It's a big book and well worth the money. I bought the Quick and Clever Handmade Cards book along with this, it's not done as well and has less ideas and doesn't explain well either.If you like variety and something different, but easy to do, I highly recommend this book!
Worth every penny. Packed with hundreds of techniques, variations on techniques, ideas, samples. Every time I open it I find something new. Instructions and supply lists clear and complete. I do wish supply list was printed in black ink instead of soft orange but it's ok.
I love making cards - so I go to the bookstore not to buy books to read but to see what's new in the craft department.I am usually dispappointed with their collection. I finally came across this book and it is absolutely wonderful. The ideas and tips are great. It's full of beautiful illustrations and easy to follow.You gotta get this book - it IS A TREASURE.
I have tons of books on stamping , cardmaking and scrapbooking, but this one really surprised me.I bought it based on the good reviews, and I don't regret it!I do papercrafting all the time, and there are so many creative technique ideas in this book that I couldn't imagine!The moment I received this book, I opened it randomly and the first page I read was on "how to make scented hot embossing"!I thought - wow! This book seems cool...and I had the perfect first impression.It's really really cool!
I ordered this book thinking that for $12.00 or so I was going to get a little paperback craft book with a few ideas that I could use. What I got was essentially a textbook in papercrafting ideas and techniques that took me a few days to flip through. It's not like a huge college text book or anything, but it is much larger than any other papercrafting book I own.This book is invaluable, especially to anyone who is just beginning. But even for us seasoned crafters, there are plenty of new ideas to explore in this book. I highly recommend it!
What a wonderful book! A variety of techniques are well described, the layout is pleasing, and the photos clear. Even if you don't need the how-to instruction offered, the book is worth the price just for the card design ideas. My aging eyes would be happier if the Materials List was printed in black or dark brown ink rather than the chosen orange-yellow ink, but heck, the cards are beautiful!
Nice big pictures and all in one place. I have tons of Magazines that I have been keeping that this book replaces.
