I ordered this book right before I went on a Scrap Retreat. I LOVE IT! When scrapping for hours upon hours, I find I will get a "Creative Block" where the creative juices just stopped pumping....This book helps me get past the block and get back in the Creative Scapping Mojo!
This spiral-bound idea book lays flat for easy scraplifting... and it gets right down to business... quickly. There are no frills (or color) in this book, but it's a masterpiece when it comes to scrapper's block. This idea book includes 30 two-page sketches, that can also be separated into 60 single page layouts with a little creativity. And remember, anytime you have a sketch of any kind, you can flip it and twist it several times to get more variations on just the one idea... so really, the possibilities are exponential.
My favorite part of this book is the "key" (or legend) found on each page that delineates patterned paper from cardstock and small patterns from larger patterns, giving you the creative freedom to use up your supplies and scraps. There are also measurements for every element down to the quarter inch for those that like to be very precise. Each sketch is unique and can be clean and simple or modified and really "grunged" up for those that prefer a more vintage, shabby chich style.
