First Sentence
Babies grow and change so rapidly that what once were vivid memories of baby's birth, toothless smiles, hesitant steps and babbling words quickly merge into a blurry montage of vague recollections. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Memory Makers magazine has been on newsstands since 1996 - the early days of the scrapbooking explosion into mainstream American culture. From that time the founder and editorial staff have witnessed not only the growth of this popular craft, but the births of all the trends and styles that followed. This book, Outstanding Scrapbook Pages, is a summary of their most distinctive and significant reader-submitted pages that have been featured in the magazine until early 2003.
According to the Introduction, the 250 page selections were difficult to choose. The staff had to review "every page of every issue" since the beginning before voting on favorites. The criteria for being included were: How influential was that page on later scrapbooking trends? Were the techniques extraordinary, the photos exceptional, or perhaps the journaling memorable? Was there something unique in the design/idea that made it stand out? Based on what I have seen here, every page in this book answers yes to at least one of those questions.
I happen to have collected several of the other books published by Memory Makers, all of which showcase page examples of the techniques being discussed. I wasn't terribly surprised to recognize many of the same pages here that were used previously in their other books; makes sense to me, because after all, the most outstanding examples of techniques for their teaching books would probably be influential, memorable, and/or extraordinary in general. Still, this book was a wee bit redundant for me. On the other hand, readers who are new to scrapbooking will appreciate the quick retrospective on the craft, which helps them catch up to modern trends in one read.

I got this book for around $8 from Hamilton Books [great source for terrific prices]. While there are plenty of pages that don't suit my taste, there were just as many that were pure inspiration.

Too dated for me! March 17 2005
By D. McCabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wish I'd paid more attention to the publication date on this book. I also think the book should be subtitled: "A HISTORY of Scrapbooking and Memory Makers." There were few entries included that were from 2003, and many were from the late 1990's. Scrapbooking has changed so much in the last 8-10 years, and while this book serves as a great reminder of "look how far we've come!" it wasn't what I was looking for. Too many of the layouts featured are very dated. There were a few that I enjoyed, but those I probably already have seen from my years of getting the magazine!

A rich gallery of scrapbook pages from 96 to 03 Feb. 10 2004

Longtime readers of the magazine may cherish this nice collection of favorites, especially if it means that they can finally donate a few shelf-fulls of back issues to the local library in exchange for one slim volume that chronicles the cream of the crop. And based on the general excellence of this gallery of scrapbooking art, I can heartily recommend it to anybody looking for page ideas.

wonderful ideas, but......... Jan. 22 2006
By K.H.L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are plenty of wonderful ideas in this book. But you must know that there are not step by step instructions. If you need some inspiration, then flip through this book and I'm sure you'll be inspired. Although some might say that it is dated (see review below), I think that there are still plenty of fabulous ideas and creativity in here. I would say that because of the lack of instruction and the fact that there isn't alot of information on scrapbooking supplies that it would be geared more towards the "pro" scrapper or a very adventurous and confident beginner.

Outstanding says it all March 9 2007
By Patricia A. Tartaglia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book truly is outstanding. Michele never ceases to amaze me with what she comes up with in her scrapbooking. This is a unique and unusual collection of ideas that is well represented with beautiful photos and a full explanation of the technique used. However, I would say this book is for someone with basic scrapbooking knowledge since it is not written with detailed step by step instructions. The inserts next to each design are more about the inspiration for the pages and the technique used rather than a detailed instruction of that technique. Still, it was not hard to follow in creating these wonders. A great book to have.
