Creating a customized family heirloom is easier than you think!

Now you can create a scrapbook to cherish forever--one as unique as the lives it portrays. This comprehensive source book, produced by the experts at the Scrapbook Guild, will answer all your questions and take you step by step through the process of assembling a homemade work of art.

Even if you have no artistic ability, you will learn how to make scrapbooks so full of style, so engaging, they beg to be shared with others, and where turning the pages is as fascinating as walking through a miniature museum.

The Scrapbook Guild provides expert tips, professional layouts, and instructions for using original quality materials to produce a treasure that will last for generations...as individual as your own memories. Discover:

  • How to get started
  • Best-for-your-money materials--pens, paper, scissors, album types, and more
  • Remedies for common scrapbook problems
  • Layouts and cropping
  • Border designs, illustrations, textured backgrounds
  • Storage tips
  • Arrangements for items other than photos, such as report cards, sports medals, pressed flowers, business cards, or airline tickets
  • How to hold a scrapbooking bee or get-together
  • A tremendous resource section--with complete ordering information

    Plus Great Scrapbook Ideas:
    Wedding x New House x Family Tree x Anniversary x Travel x Pet Layouts and Models for 30 Theme Books!

  • Synopsis:

    A recent article in The Wall Street Journal summed it up best: "providing advice to scrapbookers is a growing market". Scrapbooking, a major new American hobby that has taken off in popularity since 1995, now has two national magazines devoted to it, each of which has well over 100,000 subscribers. In 1997, more than $200 million was spent on scrapbook materials — up from zero in 1995, and in California, stores devoted solely to scrapbooking are opening all over the state.

    "The Simple Art of Scrapbooking", from the Scrapbook Guild, is a beautiful, illustrated guide for scrapbook enthusiasts that shows how modern scrapbooks, unlike the messy, pasted albums of the past, are becoming homemade works of art. Beginning with a brief history of the craft, "The Simple Art of Scrapbooking" offers tips on materials, effective storage, cropping, lettering, captioning, and design techniques. It also provides thirty special album ideas with suggested layouts and advice on creating your own scrapbook clubs.

    Filled with detailed line-art drawings illustrating technique and with photographs of finished scrapbooks for inspiration, "The Simple Art of Scrapbooking" is the comprehensive, must-have handbook for America's hugely popular new craft trend.
