Cathy Zielske writes with warmth, humor, and creativity. She offers tons of tips and suggestions, as well as concrete guidelines for scrappers to follow. She enables you to adapt the layouts you see on the pages of your favorite magazines to your own style. This book offers more of what she wrote in the first volume, but it also goes further, getting into greater detail about how Cathy creates her fabulous style.
I may never buy another idea book -- nahh, of course I will! But this one will have a place of honor on my shelf.
Then a friend recommended Clean and Simple - The Sequel and I finally "got" what scrapping was all about, and more importantly, how to actually DO it. Cathy makes scrapping seem as simple as it actually should be. Oh how I wish I had read this one when I started. If you only read one scrapbooking book, this is it. Cathy has a real talent for explaining both philosophy and actual "how to" in a way that is relevant and applicable.
I could only give it four stars though, instead of five, much though I would have liked to. I read this book (The Sequel) first, and since I loved it so much, I bought the first Clean and Simple book as well. Unfortunately, a lot of the ideas in The Sequel are also in Clean and Simple (the original), they are just more fully formed. If I had to pick just one, I'd pick the second book over the first one. Its genius is diluted a bit in my mind however, in knowing that it does have a lot of recycled material. It's still a great book though!
I love Cathy's striking graphic style. This is definitely not for scrappers who are addicted to stickers and gaudy embellishments! Think of it as modern, contemporary, fresh and clean.
Bravo Cathy! The book is an insperation.
