5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring! Jan. 8 2008
By Nancy S
I love this book!! I ordered it from Amazon as soon as it came out and it is definitely in my Top 5 favorites list.I have previously purchased 2 of Sherrill's books which I enjoy very much.This is a book that is both inspiring and very eduational,filled with great instructions and easy to follow diagrams. It would appeal to anyone interested in the paper arts,collage,mixed media, rubberstamping and artist trading cards. Apparently Sherril has 2 more books coming out next month that also look very promising!
This book takes you to another level of artistic discovery and exploration,very highly recommended!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Change those colors! March 13 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This latest book is a continuation of Sherrill's previous works, which I also own. This newest addition does have some terrific ideas and tips. But I wish Sherrill would use other colors and different rubber stamp images (yes, I know she designs and sells her own line of rubber) so that one can see what these projects would look like in other hues and designs. The photos almost look as if they were taken directly from her other two books. She seems to be doing the identical projects over and over and over. Her little journals are people dolls and rolled beads are cute. But, please, please, please show us something new!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT !!! March 6 2007
By Jean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have an extensive library of books on fabric and paper arts but this one is by far the best. The chapters are organized by technique and the instructions are easy to understand. There are even some imaginative techniques that I had never heard of before but I am now anxious to try. What I love best, however, are the many beautiful pictures of the finished artwork. They are truly inspiring. I recommend this book to beginners and experts alike. It will definitely get your creative juices flowing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever! May 6 2007
By Janice Richie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I buy a book for inspiration and technique, I don't want it to be an art "show" -- I want it to tell me how to do it! This book has great step-by-step instructions and illustrations. I have to say it's one of my very favorite and I've been buying technique books for years. This one sits next to me in my work room and I refer to it often. I recommend it to beginners, advanced, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative Embellishments is drool-worthy! April 10 2007
By Joanne Burkett - Published on Amazon.com
This book is the epitomy of eye candy, but unlike candy, it packs an artistically nutritional punch. Sherrill Kahn has filled every single page with the most beautiful projects, in full color. The instruction is first-rate and Sherrill's love of creating is just bursting out all over. I just absolutely cannot get enough of this book. Wish I'd written it...well, first I'd have to be that talented and imaginative. Sure hope Sherrill has more books in her.
