I have been scrap booking for a very long time. I found this the best book out of the five that I borrowed on the subject. It is obviously very visual and informative, but, it also had some great ideas on backgrounds and lettering that I am anxious to try!

“Teach Yourself Visually Scrapbooking” is informative and makes scrapbooking seem easy. However, landscapes, nature, architecture, etc. are the subjects of most of my photos, and I was looking for a meaningful way to organize them. Thus, I wish the book would have included more projects that were relevant to my interests.
