Stamp out dullness in your memory album! Sure, you carefully chose the best photos, clippings, and memorabilia. But what about the scrapbook itself? Acclaimed author and rubber stamp expert Dee Gruenig helps devotees of this popular craft create great decorated pages for a one-of-a-kind book. Get the latest on stamps and pads, and decorative techniques using markers and pens, brayers and sponges, embossing powders, and heat tools. Choose the right paper for the right look, and accentuate photos with custom-sized frames. Then, pick a special occasion for your personal scrapbook. Weddings, births, graduations -- even a picnic in the park will do! Make stamped thematic pages: try Western motifs; state and national designs; or arches and arbors. Create labels; embellish pages with stripes or compressed sponge backgrounds, and have a merry Christmas with holiday stickers. Anyone can do it -- with a stamp, a pad, and a little imagination!
