Encyclopedia Of Scrapbooking • 6/23/08
I’ve been interested in this enormous 320 page Encyclopedia of Scrapbooking for awhile now. From Creating Keepsakes (the folks who do the magazine under the same name), this book is meant as a ref guide for both beginner and advanced scrapbook artists. There are a ton of different techniques, sample layouts, embellishment ideas and descriptions of tools to use.
Some of the techniques they talk about include photo adhesion tips, how to crop photos, how to title items in the scrapbooks, paper trimming techniques and tips on cutting out shapes and using templates.
There is also a basic introduction to scrapbooking and a short history. The encyclopedia also talks about other ways you might use scrapbooking, lists resources to refer to and at the end of the book there is a short appendix that talks about technical scrapbook terms and other issues. This sounds like a great scrapbook reference to have on the bookshelf to refer to time and time again.
