Book Review

The title of this book, Scrapbooking Off the Page … and On the Wall says it all. The projects included within its pages take scrapbooking to a new level, turning your memories into artwork to be displayed on the walls rather than in a book. The project ideas include a variety of themes; Family, travel, vacations, babies, sisters, gardening, children’s special moments, graduation, friends, weddings, heritage, cowgirl, love, sports and pet themes and decorations for holidays and around the house. The unique aspects about the scrapbooking projects in this book are the materials on which the photos are displayed. Among them are canvases, shadow boxes, frames of various shapes and sizes, shutters, an aluminium sheet, particleboard, mat board, a clipboard, ceramic tiles, a wood cabinet door, an artificial evergreen wreath and a small wood screen you assemble yourself.

Scrapbooking is a great passion for a lot of people. The ideas in Scrapbooking off the Page … and On the Wall are so exceptional and inspiring they are what makes this book a must have for scrapbookers. The photos are beautifully arranged so they are distinct amongst the embellishments and the relevant memorabilia. I really like how the color combinations from the frame to the papers and embellishments all tie in with the photo in the layout (i.e. the person in the photo of the Cowgirl themed layout is wearing a red sweater and the color of the papers, embellishments and the frame match it as closely as possible). One of my favorite scrapbooking techniques from this book is the use of small frames in combination with big frames either within the layout or hanging from it as part of the embellishment. This technique was used in a couple of the projects in Scrapbooking off the Page … and On the Wall. It was really hard to pick my favorites from the wide variety of layouts because they are all so beautiful and inspiring.

The instructions for the projects in this book are written in a very straightforward and simple manner for everyone to follow. Great full-page photos of the layouts that provide you with a good view of what the final product should look like accompany the instructions. The photo is a good guide to use when following the instructions. When you decide on the scrapbooking project you are going to do there is a chapter at the back of the book with materials lists including the brand names of the products used. There is also a list of resources at the back of the book with the addresses where you can find what you need to make these wonderful creations.
