Our family loves Syd Hoff's books. They are easy to read for that younger reader, and they are funny for that adult who reads the book to the youngest child.

The Complete Book of Scrapbooking (includes templates, shapes, and stencils)
Review Date: 1/1/2007
Helpful Score: 1


I think this book would be best for a frugal scrapbooker who doesn't have a lot of gadgets. There are plenty of stencils in the book so you can trace letters and shapes. I just used my gadgets so I had no use for these stencils. The book itself is informative and well written. It give you tips on such basics as how to sort and store photos, using design principals, journalling, and organizing time. It also has tips and photos about how to use different techniques such as using stickers, using vellum, cutting, rubber stamping, chalking, using computers, and framing.

I read this book for the first time as an adult and I really enjoyed it. It's about a girl named Jerusha who grew up in a children's home and finished high-school while at the home. She has a talent for writing so one of the trustees of the home offers to pay for college for her on the condition that he remain anonymous and that she writes to him faithfully every month about what's going on at school. She starts writing to him and addresses the letters to "Daddy Long Legs"
