I purchased this book along with another one offered here in hopes that I would finally be able to get my scrap room functional. I’m moving my scrap room from a small room into a bigger room, and I wanted to do it right this time. I’ve lucked up with this purchase.
I have to admit this is by far the better choice of the two books. I’ve read the book more than once now and every time I re-read something different catches my eye. Not only does Jill explain simple purchased storage solutions but she also incorporates other items that can be found around the house or in thrift stores and yard sales. It doesn’t matter if you have a small space or a huge room all areas are covered. If you are having problems with paper storage she has solutions. She actually has storage solutions for almost everything scrapbook related. I also have found a greater interest in packing for crops. Thanks to her handy tips I will feel more comfortable packing for a crop, and cropping away from home. I’m looking forward to an updated version.
And Jill, your studio is AWESOME!
Normally I dont write comments.. but I have searched for a good book on organizing scrapbook/papercraft supplies and this one wins the prize!
Some books just show pictures of 'foofy' rooms filled with so many cuties things to store 'goodies' in that they are useless.
This book doesn't bother with how to 'decorate' your craft room, but which storage items are practical and actually provide good storage solutions. At this point in time I am in the process of reorganizing my craft room and have gotten a lot of good ideas from the book.
I liked the book so well, that in addition to storing in my computer, I printed it and put all the pages in page protectors in a notebook.. Now I can sit in my living room and flip through the pages and study the nice color photos !
If you are looking for a book on organizing your scrapping space, no matter how small or large, get this book..
I just started scrapbooking last year, however, I have not had the chance to do much because I do not have a specific area for my work. I needed some kind of guidance to get myself organized, and decided to purchase this guide. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! It is very informative, and now my scrapbook room is in progress. I'm only in the begginning stage, where I'm clearing out the clutter in one of my spare rooms, but that's a start. Thanks to this book I am in the right direction. I recommend it to EVERYONE who in in the begginner stage of scrapbooking. I have read it twice already, and have note and highlights all over it. GREAT IDEAS, SUGGESTIONS, AND PRODUCT!!!
Even though I love my Scrap Room I read this book from cover-to-cover and was NOT disappointed one bit! Many of the suggestion I already had put in place. However, there were a few that I was really impressed with. I have already implimented 1 of the ideas and plan on doing another 1 in the very near future.
Where I bought this on sale, It was definitely worth it ... I had looked at it over and over again but I just couldn't decide if I should purchase it or not, as I LOVE MY SCRAP ROOM. I felt like I have it pretty well organized, and after reading the book I still feel that way, however, again I WOULD REPURCHASE THIS eBook in a heartbeat!
During my successful career I always felt that if I went to a seminar or read a book and got at least 1 GREAT idea that I could use out of it, THEN IT was worth my time. This e-Book has many more than 1 great idea in it. Purchase it and sit down with a latte or cup of tea and enjoy!
I have written SEVERAL messages explaining that it wouldn't download. I keep getting form letters or pre-written (not live) responses. I cannot write a review because I cannot get the product!
I am very disappointed!
