This mammoth book contains so much valuable information, and so many exciting examples of great work, it will become the must-have resource for every beginning and experienced scrapbooker's library! In more than 300 pages, the history of the craft unfolds, from the old-fashioned albums of eras past to the renaissance of creative scrapbooking today. Interviews and profiles of leading designers and companies offer insight into the art, and there's abundant advice for newcomers on improving their images and their layouts. They'll find out how to take full advantage of the camera's key components; store photographs and ensure archival quality; and create a powerful, balanced design on the page. Invaluable tips cover choice of materials, selecting and integrating type, and using words to enhance the images. And of course there's a plethora of fabulous techniques to try, from cropping, matting and mounting photos to stamping, embossing, and distressing to creating custom papers on the computer. And the sample layouts spotlight those important moments that everyone most wants to commemorate: birthdays, graduations, weddings, and special family events. A Main Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.
