My Review:

I made my first scrapbook when I was 16. A good friend of mine, who’s always been straightforward, told me she wanted one for her birthday. 

After she announced it to our clique, I went to several art stores to hunt for art supplies. The entire process went on for a month and I spent more than $30. Till this day, it remains the most expensive gift I’ve bought for a friend.

Granted, I was an art club member but I didn’t have any experience when it comes to scrapbooking. If only I had Budget Scrapbooking for Beginners at that time!

I’m sure I would have had no problem making a bigger (and cheaper) one.

In the book, the author shares dozens of insightful tips on scrapbooking. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that we can use our kitchen and household items — like cereal boxes and dental floss — to make them!

Budget Scrapbooking for Beginners is jam-packed with practical information like alternative ways to make full use of junk images instead of throwing them in the rubbish chute; internet sources available for free image downloads; and beneficial tips and techniques that will surely get a nod of approval from Martha Stewart.
