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.

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 :)
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!!
another great book Sherry!
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.
