This book is a wonderful resource for card makers. It gives you many templates and shows several card examples of each. I wish it had a "menu" of all the templates on a page at the end like The Joy of Cardmaking, but the templates are all on the top left, so it's easy to flip through that way. I did not like the first chapter on shaped cards, but I've marked many "sketches" to try. Generally these cards are quick and easy to make. Directions are for someone who already does card crafting and do not give measurements.

If you are a scout leader, camp director, teacher, craft instructor, art therapist, hobbyist or creative person in general, you need to BUY THIS BOOK. I first discovered this book on a visit to a chain bookstore. After a quick perusal of the project photos, and the simple How-To instructions, I knew I needed to acquire it ! It was cheaper on Overstock than if I'd bought it with my teacher discount. There are some really clever projects that kids of various ages would enjoy making and/or using. I love that you are REDUCING waste & REUSING materials that would've ended up in a landfill like milk jugs and laundry soap bottles. The projects are useful and/or decorative. They require minimal tools or additional supplies. I bought the book for my 23 yr. old daughter who can't wait to make some of the projects as gifts for friends, or to sell at a craft fair...they're just so colorful

It's not unusual for bookshelves to incorporate multiple materials for different features. If you haven't decided on wood, wood products, metal or glass bookshelves, look at their relative strengths and weaknesses. Look below to learn the best bookshelf materials. Wood: "Solid wood" is a common term for furniture made from lumber planks. Beware of making assumptions based on labels like "hardwood" and "softwood." Hardwoods are derived from deciduous trees and softwoods from coniferous trees; the terms don't connote their relative strengths. Balsa is a hardwood even though it is very soft, just as Douglas fir is a softwood even though it is very hard. They all make excellent, classic stock material for bookcases. Generally, harder woods are the heavier and more resistant to scratches. Still, softer woods, if treated correctly, will keep just as well as harder woods. Plywood: Made by stacking thin sheets -- "plies" -- of lumber and gluing them under pressure, plywood features grains that alternate direction for strength. Several grades are available, of differing cost. Top and bottom plies can be high-quality woods to create the appearance of fine woods, but edge veneer or molding is needed to complete the illusion. Particleboard: Wood chips glued together carry a much lower price tag than solid wood, and particleboard is denser and more uniform. It's a great choice when cost is the primary consideration. Bookshelves crafted from veneered composite boards can look and feel as good as real wood. MDF: Wood fibers, tiny chips and sawdust collected and glued into sheets form medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Low-cost MDF makes an excellent base for veneers; plus, its strength is consistent and it shapes well. Metal: There's a reason most library bookshelves are made from metal: Metal bookcases are resistant to moisture and fungus, their low-friction shelves are easier on books' bindings and metal's strength-to-weight ratio can't be beat. Their cost usually comes in below any other material. Glass: Glass bookshelves weigh more than other types, but if you plan on assembling your bookshelves only once, the style points can be well worth it. Tempered glass shelves (in wood or metal uprights, called "standards") give your home an unbeatable contemporary feel, and glass bookcases' smooth, transparent surfaces add brilliant levity to a decorating piece that might otherwise be notably opaque and heavy.

Every so often, a laminated sign may be the perfect solution to what you're looking for. Lamination will help keep items from getting damaged by water, smudges, finger prints, tearing or a host of other damages. Lamination also has the advantage of bringing out the color and contrast in an item. Lamination can help preserve an item, such as a flyer or a scrapbook sign, for a longer period of time. Perhaps you want to advertise a yard sale, create a "For Sale" sign, make a school project or create a sturdy flyer to hand out. Scrapbooking enthusiasts often use laminators to create sturdy entries for their scrapbooks. No matter what you're looking to laminate, you'll want to have the right tools for the job. While large jobs may call for the assistance of a business that specializes in making signs, smaller lamination projects can be handled on your own if you have the right equipment.
