Library Journal Review

This book was written for busy crafters who liked the author's Making Gifts with Rubber Stamps but wanted quicker projects. These step-by-step projects for stamped and embellished accessories and household items each require about a half hour once materials are assembled. The stamping techniques, for purchased stamps, can be used interchangeably on paper, fabric, leather, wood, or metal. McCall includes a particularly good section on tools and materials available in craft shops. This is a good choice for public libraries needing more material on this rapidly evolving craft.
