Cut Loose:  Break the Rules of Scrapbooking

My first book published by Memory Makers books. ( July 2008)

Book Description (from Amazon)
For many scrapbookers, there are "shoulds" that they feel they must keep in mind whenever creating a page: each layout should have a title, photo and journaling, each page should be about a person or a pet, each layout should be symmetrical. In Cut Loose, the author teaches readers that the only "should" in scrapbooking is that it should be fun. She encourages readers to cast aside the "shoulds" of scrapbooking and free themselves to create the layouts that are unique to them. Thirty creative jumpstarts are set forth accompanied by corresponding layouts that illustrate to readers how they can break the rules of the "shoulds" and create the scrapbook pages they want to make.

Book Description (from Amazon)

Handwriting can make all the difference in adding personality to your layouts. However, most scrapbookers are unhappy with their own handwriting and avoid using it on their pages. This is why the Scrapbooker’s Handwriting Workshop teaches you to make the most of your own handwriting. Learn 20 different handwritten fonts that can be used on your pages. Plus, the bonus gallery of 50 layouts provides plenty of inspiration for altering the fonts and ideas for using your handwriting in your scrapbooks.
