Booklist Review

Grossman owns Mrs. Grossman's Paper Company, one of the largest designers and manufacturers of decorative stickers in the country. Formerly a professional graphic artist, she is the queen of scrapbooking, which is currently one of the hottest crafts. Her positively absorbing--irrefutably irresistible--handbook takes readers/crafters by the hand as she instructs them in turning one's photographs into sensitive and personal scrapbooks by which to remember the good times. Her scrapbooks mark private occasions as well as public ones--from birthdays to Fourth of July celebrations. Although emphasizing the star status of the photographs in a personal scrapbook--they should not be overwhelmed by supporting material--Grossman nevertheless stresses the importance of journaling, or the written part of the scrapbook. Its significance as a scrapbook component is emphasized by her insistence that it should be done in one's own handwriting. Naturally, the book is packed with illustrations from several of her own scrapbooks. An essential purchase for active crafts collections. --Brad Hooper Copyright 2004 Booklist
