Format: Hardcover-spiral
I highly recommend this book to all beginner and advanced crafters, scrapbookers and card makers. It's full of very innovative embellishments ideas that can easily be customised and altered to suit various kinds of projects. The illustrations are of a very high quality and descriptions are consize but informative. I originally borrowed this book from a public library hoping to make a note of a few ideas that may be of use. But I soon realised I would have to rewrite the entire book! :) It's quite reasonably priced and definately worth every penny!

There are a lot of books about scrapbooking available, and the quality and usefulness is, to put it politely, variable. I was therefore a little wary about purchasing this one. I have however, found it very informative. It is well laid out, organised by type of embellishment, and gives a variety of uses and applications for each one, often using mundane items in an unusual manner.

The only reason I have not given this book 5 stars is that, like most works on scrapbooking, it is American and consequently often refers to materials that may not be available in the UK, or at least under that name.

Thjs book is sturdy, colourful and gives you a good idea of which embellisments you could use in your scrapbooks or cardmaking.It also provides different ways to use them. The illustrations are inspiring; so is the whole book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of ideas? GET THIS BOOK! 15 Sept. 2009
By L. Bridges - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral
Most of my scrap space is devoted to bits of "this" and pieces of "that". And sometimes I want to use the products in new ways...
enter in this book!
I have several craft and scrapping books, but this is the best one I have seen in a long time. I love that it's hardcover and LOVE that it has spiral bound pages so it lays flat!
I found new ideas from the first page!
The book is divided into sections based on embellishment types so it's a total reference you can turn to when you are looking for specific ideas for what you are creating with.
Each section is subdivided so you can try a new technique or idea when you want to simply create, kick it up a notch or if you are looking for something out of the box.
Every idea and technique has a layout where it has been used, with descriptions on how to achieve the look and detailed shots of the process when needed.
There is even a digital section.
I would definitely recommend this book if you:
1. like to scrap
2. like to craft in general
3. like good, well written and photographed craft/scrap books
4. like trying new techniques
5. need some new ideas
So if you said yes to any or all of the above I really do no think you would be disappointed adding this book to your scrapping references! You'll turn to it over and over :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressed!! 14 Sept. 2009
By S. Dupre - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral
I recently won this fabulous book by Sherry Stevenson. Honestly, I would have purchased it anyway!! Since we are being honest here, I have to say I was skeptical that I would actually learn anything. I purchase scrap books and magazines to be inspired by the lo's, not so much by the techniques. As far as techniques go (other than mixed media), I thought I was pretty abreast of them all. How WRONG could I be. Seriously, in the first couple of pages I was seeing things that I had never thought of trying. Believe me, I have other scrappers tell how creative I am in ideas.

Not that I am an old dog when it comes to scrapping because I've only been scrapping about 2 1/2 years now. However, I am a sponge and have soaked up everything I thought I possibly could. Again, WRONG!! This book actually surprised me. Yes, the work is fabulous - as I expected. Still I didn't expect to be wowed by new ideas.

In this book Sherry and the other artists take your normal, even hum-drum scrap supplies and make them extraordinary. Is it possible? Yes, that brad, button, chipboard... can be something very special! I can't wait to try some of these cool ideas. I almost feel guilty like I would be stealing, but hey, that's why Sherry wrote the book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have 17 Sept. 2009
By Michigirl74 - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral
When I first got the book I skimmed through then decided to help my scrap-block I would pick a number and do whatever was on that page.. well I just opened the book to a page and was lost in the inspiration. I started flipping and reading all the ideas. It was especially great to see pages on eyelets, I definitely have those to use up! I have so many ideas now and not sure which to do first. This book would be perfect for using up your stash and it did help the mojo! I have tons of ideas, and am looking forward to incorporating flower confetti on a page.

another great book Sherry!

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST IDEAS FOR SCRAPBOOKING IN A LONG WHILE 23 Sept. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral
Go straight to checkout, do not pass go, do not collect $200. Well ok, if someone offers you $200, take it. Wait, find out what it's for. If he has extra, get some for me.

OMG. DO NOT START READING these before bed. DO NOT. At 2AM I was still reading. Nevermind that the alarm goes off at 6. I can work asleep.
I was SOOOOOOOOO stressed but I picked the books up, and OMG. OMG. I was wanting to scrap, too (since at that moment in my life I also hated digital scrapbooking) But those books - where was I???? I need to tell everyone I know about these. OMG.

YOU WILL LOVE THEM. I've taught scrapbooking for over a decade and thought I'd seen it all. buy Both her new book, Embellishments, and the Lemon book. AWESOME.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 12 Feb. 2010
By P. Keslin - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral
I just received my copy of The Scrapbook Embellishment Handbook. After a quick perusal of the contents I must say I am inspired. The example layouts are beautiful, the "new" ideas for the use of my embellishments abound. Many of the ideas are leading me to think of other possibilities, ways to use my embellishments and stretch my supplies even further.
