Ever since I inherited a banker's box full of ancient family photos from my Aunt Pauline, I've wondered how best to preserve and cherish them. Now I know! Thanks Kerry and Andrea. Lynnxx

This book is full of beautiful layouts and is so refreshing in its design. It is designed in a way that is not overpowering at all but is loaded with fun and fresh ideas. Very classy.

Having just started out with Scrapbooking, and reading many sources, this book was the most helpful one! It helped me learn how to utilize my whites and colors, and no other book offered that! It is an easy to read, and understand, book - which was right up my alley! You won't be disappointed!

The Scrapbooker's Color Palate, a Christmas gift from my friend who's a dyed in the wool scrapbooker, is the first one that not only made sense to me, but showed me the most creative way to present pictures. With 14 grandchildren, I needed help, and this book showed me creative ways to feature each one.

I just purchased two books and can't wait to give them as gifts. I am sure that I will have fun spending time with my Godchild and Niece to create a life long memory for them to keep. Lisa, Alison & Gwennie

I really like this book, The Scrapbooker's Color Palette. The art is very, very good and I had fun reading all the facts and color information. I would recommend this book to any scrapbooker although I think the intermediate to advance scrapbooker will benefit the most from it.

This book is different from all the other books that publishers seem to be cranking out. For one thing, it is FUN! I love all the sidebars and found myself laughing out loud sometimes. The artwork is amazing. Some of the best I've ever seen. And, YES, there is lots of useful information that will make me a better scrapper. I recommend this book to anybody who wants a good read and lots of useful information!

I've seen a lot of books about the nations #1 hobby -- scrapbooking -- but this classy book stands out from the pack. Its visually stunning and filled with useful information.

I absolutely love this book. The art work is so fresh and original and the written information is fun to read and interesting. So many craft books are so dry they put you to sleep. The Scrapbooker's Color Palette is full of interesting and useful information about color and scrapbooking. I especially liked the many 'stroke-of-genius' text tidbits throughout the book.
