    Practical and So Much Fun (06 May 2012)

    I'm using this little booklet of journaling cards in my Italy scrapbook. The colors are perfect, as is the aged look and theme. I took the spiral binding off and am using the pages separately. You get two of each design and I'm using them as journaling tags, photo mats, even used two for title blocks on a two-page spread. I made the title on my computer and printed it out, then used double-sided tape to position the tag over the printing. I held it up to the light and could get the positioning just right, stuck it down, then ran it through the printer again. Perfect title block!

    Scads of Ideas (02 May 2012)

    I read this book in just two nights and it's now filled with sticky notes poking out of almost every page! The spiral binding makes it easy to lie flat on the work surface for reference, and the color photos are wonderful. Each page shows three layout sketches with more creative ideas than you can shake a chipboard monogram at. The six chapters each tackle a different aspect of design and the ideas are very creative. It takes a balance to inspire us to think bigger, yet not be so far out that we'd never try a certain layout. These three women got it just right.
