Reviews - What do our customers think?
All time FAVE!  Oct 10, 2008
I just love this book. It has hundreds of terrific scrapbook pages and a ton of useful information: such as, how to take better photos, color theory, and design. Lots of scrapbooking books feature a single style but tThe Joy of Scrapbooking has pages that are simple and elegant to complex and elaborate. Its organized by subject making it an idea encyclopedia. This book is a must have for scrapbookers of all abilities.
not realistic for the average scrapbooker  Mar 28, 2008
Well, I was looking for a scrapbook with REALISTIC ideas that I could use. All this book has is pictures of people's fancy scrapbook designs without much instruction. The style is also very contemporary and MOD - not classic - and not simplistic. I don't see how your average person who enjoys scrapbooking as a HOBBY could create these page designs without forking out a fortune on supplies! I was looking for basic new ideas on how to shape photos, cut and arrange paper, and add simple odds and ends like ribbon and buttons.
THis is more of a "coffee table" book (good for looking, not doing) than a "how-to" book. Glad I checked it out from the library before actually spending money on this book.
Lots of pictures, not very much instruction  Jul 31, 2007
I started scrapbooking a few months ago and was looking for a type of "how-to" book that would give me instructions on how to do the basic, different things (techniques) involved in scrapbooking. I read the reviews for this book and thought it sounded like what I was looking for so I bought it. I was rather disappointed. It does have many, many pictures of layouts that other people have done and they are very nice. What it doesn't have is very much instruction. There are a few small paragraphs explaining different techniques in a general way and we are told what products were used to make each layout/picture. I guess what you will get out of this book depends on how you want to make your scrapbooks. If you like to use other people's ideas then this book will be great. I prefer to come up with my own ideas about layouts and the use of colors, photos, etc., so this book didn't really help me much.
The full-page color photos of sample layouts are clear and uncluttered, and the result is packed with inspirational examples.  Feb 8, 2007
There are plenty of books on scrapbooking in the market, but this packs in so much more information than competitors that it's the recommended pick for any library seeking just one or two authoritative texts on the subject. Such a collection will find not only the usual tips on how to produce polished scrapbook results, but interviews and profiles of leading designers and companies, advice for newcomers on improving images and presentation, and keys to understanding a camera's advanced - often unused - capabilities. The full-page color photos of sample layouts are clear and uncluttered, and the result is packed with inspirational examples.

All inclusive information for scrapbookers, no other books needed!  Jan 9, 2007
Save yourself money and shelf space - this book covers everything you need to know be a brilliant scrapbooker! I checked out every book on scrapbooking from our county library system (over 40) and this book is far superior to any of the others, so I had to have a copy of my own for frequent reference. It is a big, thick, all color book of high quality glossy pages with a good sturdy binding to allow for heavy use. It starts with the basics - colors, including what-goes-with-what for the more color challenged of us, how they interact with each other, how diffferent colors on the same layout touch different emotions, etc. It covers photography: what makes a good photo and how to take it, how lighting can change the feelings the photo evokes, how to crop a photo so it coveys what you want reflected, etc. It covers papers, vellums, cardstock, and what you need to know about each category. It covers embellishements thoroughly, and gives great ideas for uses of household items that look fantastic, not tacky, on pages. It gives great info on what makes good titling, journaling, etc. I could go on and on. This is not just a 'picture book' though it has literally hundreds of pages of gorgeous layouts for those of us who prefer to 'scraplift' ideas (copy the layout). It has all the information you need to be a designer scrapbooker, all you have to do is read it, and it is worth reading - every word!
