Book Review

The style of Making Gift Scrapbooks in a Snap is very informal. Following a letter from the author there is a must read section called Getting Started (including theme album ideas, photo selection, choosing an album, tools and supplies, assembling your album and a handy checklist to recap the section). The chapters in this book include Fill-in albums, Planned photo theme albums, Random photo theme albums and Specialty theme photo albums. One scrapbook type per section of each chapter (i.e. the Year-in-review album in the chapter on Fill-in albums) is accompanied by a tools and materials list and step-by-step instructions in its presentation of layout ideas. The rest of the scrapbook ideas come with short descriptions of the process. Each of the main scrapbook types includes one or more of these helpful hints and tips; shortcuts, photo tips, design tips, organization tips, journaling tips and other album ideas. Examples of additional layouts are included with the main layout to demonstrate different techniques that could be used.

I like the wide variety of album and layout ideas demonstrated on the pages of Making Gift Scrapbooks because they have inspired me to explore different avenues when doing my own scrapbooking. I also like the way there is a photo display of the materials and tools used for the albums that are accompanied by step-by-step instructions. I am a very visual person and this guarantees you will purchase the right materials you need to make your scrapbooking pages. If you take this book for what it is, a wonderful source of inspiration with some instruction it is a great resource for scrapbookers who already have some experience. If you are looking for a book of complete instructions Making Gift Scrapbooks in a Snap won’t meet all your needs but will provide you with some great ideas and as you develop your scrapbooking skills it will take you in new directions.
