I have been scapping for 9 years now, off and on with my decorative painting (which I use for scrapping too), and my new love of learning to quilt. However, I have only been to one Scrap, so have learned by my own uses of paper, and very few embellishments but for eyelets and brads. I just started using buttons, but this showed me a new awareness of their use.
Wow was I ever surprised at would could be used to make the pages pop. This book really taught me alot I hadn't realized about using strips of paper. embellishments, small scraps of paper, etc.
I always mat my photos, and now realize that cutting out the background completely, can in some cases allow you to place rows of similar photos and therefore having it almost like a video!
All in all, I am very pleased with the book. Learning how to "lift" from someone else's page and make it your own, as well as new techniques.
I received it free with my other purchases, which makes it even more special!
