Designer Scrapbooks the Red Hat Society Way : A Guide to Chronicling Ridiculous Fun
Designer Scrapbooks the Red Hat Society Way A Guide to Chronicling Ridiculous Fun Author:Ruby Redhat Sue Ellen Cooper, bestselling author of The Red Hat Society: Fun and Friendship After Fifty and one of the founders of this bourgeoning group--which increases by 100 chapters a day--provides the foreword, and the animated character Ruby Red Hat hosts the proceedings in high style and high spirits. — There's no doubt that the "Red Ha... more »ts" are an amazing phenomenon. Not only did the book written by its founders stay on the New York Times' Bestseller List for weeks, but more and more women over 50 just keep catching the wave and joining the movement. And what could be better for the now nearly one million members who celebrate fun and friendship than scrapbooking? They'll all rush to those shoeboxes filled with photos and come to this brightly illustrated volume to see how to do it in the inimitable, adventurous Red Hat way. Fifteen sections, organized by particular "Red-Hat-isms"-such as Dress for Excess and Exercise Your Funny Bone-are introduced by Ruby Red Hat, who's always garbed in the appropriate manner for each particular theme. The nearly 80 projects include both flat album-type pages as well as spectacular dimensional ideas for gift boxes, invitations, and other designs. Readers will also appreciate 9 pages of patterns-not to mention the wit and wisdom they'll find along with the techniques.

We of the Red Hat Society love to have fun and this book gives many ideas for not only scrapping memories of RHS events, but cute ideas for gifts as well. I totally fell in love with the purse made from a bra. Some of the ideas would be adaptable for other causes and colors (the scepter would be cute for any little girl's Halloween costume or dress-up box), but be prepared for bright page after bright page of red and purple.
This book is also an idea forum for RHS chapters to see what other groups are doing as the scrapbook pages represent actual events--almost as if this is an actual RHS scrapbook.
