Book Review

Scrapbooking for Girls Only is divided up into 5 categories; It’s All About … My Friends, School, Family, Travels and ME! At the beginning of the book is a How to Use this Book section to help you get started scrapbooking your photos followed by a useful glossary of scrapbooking terms of tools, materials and techniques you will be using. I like that there are also a few templates included right at the beginning that you can use to get started organizing your photos into layouts. This is a small book but very well organized and packed with a lot of great ideas to encourage and inspire!

Each layout is accompanied by a tools and materials list as well as numbered instructions. The number applied to a particular step of the instructions corresponds with a specific area of the layouts that it is explaining how to do. The instructions are simple and easy to follow and together with the clear photo of the completed layout make scrapbooking manageable and fun for young girls. The layouts show will be very appealing to girls because they are fun and colorful and the themes are relevant to the things they are interested in (i.e. friends, shopping, sports, prom, etc). There is also an additional section at the end of each chapter, a page of phrases or titles to use on your scrapbooking layouts in case you can’t think of the right thing to say or to inspire you.

I really like seeing that there are a lot of two page layouts included in this book. I like them because it shows you the possibilities of larger layouts. When you have two many photos for one page, instead of eliminating some photos or including too many on a page you can keep them all, spread them out and do something extraordinary with them. I also like that most of the layouts really tie in with the subject of the photos and all the embellishments reflect the theme. Including embellishments on a page like a piece of Monopoly money for the Monopoly Marathon layout really make the page colorful and the photos stand out. Scrapbooking can be daunting the first time you are doing it but the instructions and layouts in Scrapbooking for Girls Only make it seem fun and easy so you can jump right in and get started.

Favorites:

  • Best Friends layout
  • Bathing Beauties layout
  • Having a Ball layout
  • Monopoly Marathon layout
  • A Night in Venice layout
  • Track and Field layout
  • Student Driver layout
