Preserve, celebrate, and cherish life's most memorable moments with this creative guide to modern scrapbooking by prolific paper craft designer Paige Evans This stunning project book is organized into three themes: scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and mini photo albums.
The scrapbooking chapter will teach readers how to create contemporary layouts using nine different techniques, including border punches, mixed media, stamped designs, tile grids, quilt-inspired designs, handmade flowers, stitched designs, and stars. Each technique includes a step-by-step project as well as a gallery of additional samples for endless inspiration
The card chapter will teach readers how to make beautiful cards that are just as thoughtful as they are gorgeous. Themes include congratulations, sympathy, birthday, thank-you, and anniversary. Each card is presented with step-by-step instructions, and there are additional card designs at the end of the chapter to give readers even more ideas.
The mini-album chapter will teach readers how to make three memory books that are small in size, but big on detail Three popular techniques are used in the featured projects: an elastic-bound album, a shaped album, and an accordion album. Each album is overflowing with beautiful paper designs and layers of coordinating embellishments.
For those new to the craft, the book includes a comprehensive "getting started" chapter that will guide them through the massive amount of tools and materials available (and let them know exactly what's needed). Plus, readers will find an overview to basic paper-crafting techniques and design principles. At the back of the book, there are eight pages of perforated scrapbook paper that readers can pull out and use to create the projects in the book or those of their own design.
Readers will learn to make their memories into lovely works of art that will be cherished for years.
