Item description for Creative Albums by Donna Downey...
What do an old cigar box, a stack of used CDs, and a bunch of shopping bags have in common? To author Donna Downey they are all scrapbooks--yes scrapbooks. In Creative Albums, her first book in the "Yes, It's a Scrapbook" series, Donna shares 25 "out of the box" ways to capture your most meaningful memories. And best of all, you can finish most albums in an afternoon or over a weekend. Each project includes: clear, how-to instructions, step-by-step photos, full color photos of projects, and a complete list of supplies and tools needed.

Creative Albums Aug 3, 2008
I was very impressed with the Creative Albums book. It had many fresh and cute ideas about making mini albums, which I enjoy making. It contained detailed information and pictures. I would highly recommend it to new or experienced 'scrappers'.
Inspiration and fun! Feb 3, 2008
How fun is this book?? Donna D. will open your eyes to what a scrapbook is, and exactly how to create one from the ordinary and everyday items you find around your home. Forget about heading to the scrapbook store -- dig through your office supplies or the junk drawer instead! Inspiring.
Fabulous! Dec 12, 2007
Personally, I love Simple Scrapbooks Magazine and am a subscriber so it is no wonder that I made this purchase. What I love about Donna Downey's books is that they come with 25 fresh and different ideas for the same goal and they show step by step how to do it. I already own Photo Decor by Donna Downey and have used several ideas from that book. I have owned this book for about 3 weeks now and cannot wait to use it for ideas on this year's Christmas album. If you are new to scrapbooking this book is perfect because Downey gives you a list of the tools and materials needed before you ever peruse a project. She shows, with illustrations, just how to complete it with a tiny message on how she thought up the idea and brought it to fruition. If ever you wanted a book to give great ideas and to give you inspiration how to think outside the perverbial box, Donna Downey's are the ones to own.
I love this book Nov 16, 2007
I am so happy to have this book in my collection. It has so many great ideas and some techniques I hadn't ever tried. Donna has such a great style and she is such a great teacher. I also have Creative Journals which is great too!
Great Book! Jul 27, 2007
I love all three of Donna Downey's books in this series! They include projects that I will complete! I refer to it over and over again, for projects and techniques. Projects are easily adaptable to supplies I have on hand. I would recommend this book to both beginners and advanced crafters.
