From The Book Jacket NOTE FROM LISA When I first started scrapbooking, I was an engineering graduate student with a limited amount of money to spend on scrapbooking supplies. I quickly realized I could stretch my scrapbooking budget by creating pages with just the basics: my photographs, cardstock and markers.My early days of scrapbooking on a budget became the foundation of how I scrapbook today. Although I'm now an engineer (and it's no longer a splurge to buy a sheet of patterned paper or a piece of ribbon to add to a layout), I still design my layouts around the fundamentals: strong photographs, color, balance and composition. At the same time, I love the freedom to let my imagination run wild with the possibility of adding stickers, ribbon, metal embellishments, rubber stamps, acrylic paint, stitching and more to my pages.In this book, I'll guide you through the process of creating layouts with just the basics as well as teach you how to "step up your scrapbooking" with one, two, three, four or more page embellishments. I'll teach you how to choose embellishments that help tell the stories on your pages by allowing your photographs and journaling to shine. Whether you love the basics or prefer a "sky's the limit" approach to scrapbooking, I hope this book will inspire you to create scrapbook pages you love.

Terrific book, wonderful inspiration, helpful!!! Mar 21, 2007
I can't say enough good things about this book. It is simplicity at its best. The pages featured by Ms. Caveney are beautiful and inspiring, yet not extraordinarily difficult or requiring a million expensive embellishments. This is a fabulous addition to my scrapbooking library, better than most!!!
Love it! May 27, 2006
I'm a big fan of Lisa's work and this book was outstanding. I love her simple, clean style. In addition to the great scrapbooking tips, you are treated to Lisa's beautiful photography throughout. Her travels make for such interesting pages! I think both the beginner and the advanced scrapper will find much inspiration in this book.
Scrapping with elegence May 10, 2006
I loved this book, and not only because I prefer a clean, classic style over a cluttered look anyday. The author has an obvious eye for color coordination and combinations that are a step above most scrappers. Her work inspires me to focus on what really matters: content. I am often distracted, even dismayed, by overuse of embellishments in many popular designs these day. It's refreshing to see someone focusing on what's important and doing it well. If you like to scrapbook, but want to skip all the outlandish embellishments, this is the book for you. Again, I absolutely loved it!
Great for simple scrapbookers without kids Mar 9, 2006
I love this book, and look at it a lot to get ideas. I am using bigger pictures now in my pages and I like the effect. I also really like seeing a scrapbooking book by someone without kids. A lot of scrapbooking focuses on kids growing up, so it's nice to see other page topics, particularly travel photos. I liked her photos a lot because they are like ones I take and scrapbook. Not artsy, close-up portrait shots, but everyday travel and event photos, made more interesting by simple scrapbooking pages. This book isn't for every scrapbooker, but if you like simple pages that focus on the pictures and the story behind them, this might be a book for you. It's particularly good for 20-somethings without kids.
I agree with Debra... Feb 18, 2006
I am not a scrapper that likes the 'overdone' and 'overembellished' look, but this goes to another extreme and the authors pictures ARE generally nothing to get that exited about. Also, when I pay for a book, I like there to be more reading content - what really disappointed me that they supplies used (what little there were) were not specified. When I see items I like (patterned paper, stickers, etc.), I like to know what brand they are so I can seek them out myself...
