Library Night

Another Tuesday already! Where does the time go?? Well here’s my latest pickup…


I just finished  The Artful Card by Alison Eads. I am not a scrapbooker nor do I make handmade cards. I think the concepts in this book can be easily adapted to any number of suitable surfaces. Her inspiration boards were just lovely works of art in themselves.



And some featured cards…

She had excellent step-by-step photos and written instructions for all 25 projects.


From torn papers to inked and layered paint techniques, this book has something for everyone. I really enjoyed this book and may even try a few techniques but I still won’t be making any cards anytime soon (BFF Linda did say she expected handmade cards for Christmas this year)…  We’ll see…


  1. OK I have to find a new library! although I am able to order books from other libraries to be sent to ours so I have been getting more of what I have been looking for. Thanks for these great book reviews, Pam

  2. Your library is sooo much better than mine! Love looking at all these books I need.
