5.0 out of 5 stars More than alluring, 17 Mar. 2011
Very very beautiful bead weaved designs. The only way you wouldn't like this is if you like extremely plain or no jewellery. And even then most of the designs could be simplified very easily. Can't recommend enough it's a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT, 5 May 2009
Before buying this I did a LOT of research into the best one to go for. And I am really happy with my choice. It is really a great product. And after seeing and listening to mine a friend has excitedly ordered a copy for himself.

Installation was as simple as regular CDs onto IPOD. With each chapter on a separate "track" for easy reference. You can also read along as you listen should you wish to.

The listening is made very enjoyable because of the dramatisation. It keeps your attention by bringing everything to life. Yet is still very authentic so it doesn't distract from the true meaning of the word.

I am used to reading NIV and at first was hesitant about this being TNIV. But I needn't have worried. I am more than pleased because it is very similiar but with language even more like todays.

I have quite a long car journey each day and this has really opened up more opportunties to digest the Word. I am not a great reader but since owning this I have found it easy to listen to 14 chapters at a time. That is something I would struggled with if I had to read that much in one go.

And through these increased opportunties, I have felt an increase and greater closeness with God.

All in all I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Papercraft Flowers, 21 Mar. 2009
This is a simply beautiful book. It shows you how to make your own papercraft dimensional flower embellishments using paper punches. How you use them is up to you, whether it's cardmaking, scrapbooking or home decor projects - the possibilities are endless. Whatever you decide the results cannot fail to wow your friends and family.

With beautiful photographs and clear instructions (including pictures of punches used for each project) the book takes you on a breathtaking tour of popular floral blooms. Those included are:

Amaryllis, Anemone, Aster, Azalea, Bachelor's Button, Begonia, Camellia, Carnation, Cherry Blossom, Chrysanthemum, Clematis, Coreopsis, Cosmos, Daffodil, Dogwood, Echinacea, Forsythia, Gardenia, Gerber Daisy, Holly & Berries, Impatiens, Iris, Japanese Anemone, Marigold, Ornamental Kale, Pansy, Peony, Periwinkle, Petunia, Pinecone, Poinsetta, Primrose, Queen Anne's Lace, Rhododendron, Rose, Sweet Pea, Tulip, Verbena, Violet and Zinnia.

If you haven't the patience (or dexterity) for using paper punches then this book isn't for you.

However, if you love papercrafting and flowers you will adore this book. I would happily have paid £15-£20 for this. So provides excellent value for money too. I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Designing Handcrafted Cards: Step-by-Step Techniques for Cra, 16 Jan. 2006
This is a beautiful book. The cards are inspirational, simple but all very sophisticated. Yet the techniques are all fairly simple to achieve. I'm positive if you are a card maker/papercrafter you would be thrilled to bits with this book. Unless of course you only like cheesy, cutsy style... then there are other ones better for you out there.
