Rubber-stamp queen Dee Gruenig returns with more dazzling ideas, this time letting her gleeful imagination loose on another very popular craft--scrapbooking. Combining her bold and colorful approach to stamping with her lifelong love of making memory albums, she offers many delightful ways to create unforgettable pages that unite the best of both crafts. Rather than purchasing preprinted scrapbook pages, follow Gruenig's straightforward instructions to make sponged, stickered, bordered, patterned, striped, plaid, embossed, brayered, spattered, or themed backgrounds that help even the most ho-hum photos come alive. Not only do her designs nicely frame full-photo images on the page, but many are actually intricate background landscapes that cleverly incorporate individual figures cut from the photos, decoupage style.
This incredibly vivid book is packed full of ideas to enliven and personalize scrapbooks with stamps and other artistic techniques. Its highly worthwhile as a general purpose "how to" book for projects other than scrapbooks. Its formatted with a page illustrating a technique or multiple decorative techniques - the facing page has succinct instructions. This book is high on content. I think this book's a must for any rubber stamper or anyone whose just looking for ways to enliven their scrapbooks.
