Book Review

This book on Scrapbooking is really for the do-it-yourself scrapbooker because most of the projects involve making your own scrapbooks. The scrapbooks are made of a variety of materials including paper mache and material as well as using different techniques such as decoupage and sewing. There is a chapter on the different scrapbook types such as family chronicles, trips, special interests and children’s scrapbooks. There are Notes sections throughout the book that cover instructional topics of Scrapbooking like photography, drying and pressing flowers, page design and antiquing paper.

What I really like about Classic Scrapbooking are all the personal examples cited throughout the book to demonstrate various methods, styles and motivations people have used for documenting personal and/or family history.

What I didn’t like about this book is the step-by-step drawings of the books aren’t as clear as photos would be but the instructions are so it is still possible to make the craft successfully with just the instructions or a combination of both.

Overall, the information in Classic Scrapbooking is interesting and informative. For those who are really into all the aspects of Scrapbooking, including its history and its many applications and uses, this is the book for you.
