It's hard not to love Donna Downey. She sees what other people might discard (like those floppy discs that really flopped) and finds a way to make a scrapbook. Her directions are clear and easy to follow, and there are LOTS of pictures. She also uses found items that real people actually have lying around the house, not items that require trips to antique stores and expensive shops. For example, I had a pile of used CDs haunting my desk, filled with podcasts that I'd already listened to. How cou ...more

2.5 stars. As the title says, the book is about non-traditional, creative albums. Some of the ideas are cool for gift giving, but the author seems to use non-archival materials in abundance (like cardboard.) While possibly attractive, (or at least unique), the acid in cardboard will eat up the photos in time. Same with a Rolodex "album. "I also do not want to use a drill when creating my albums. Oh, and almost everything uses a Xyron adhesive machine.

How fun is this book?? Donna D. will open your eyes to what a scrapbook is, and exactly how to create one from the ordinary and everyday items you find around your home. Forget about heading to the scrapbook store -- dig through your office supplies or the junk drawer instead! Inspiring.

cute smaller albums. She used various items to make small scrapbooks. One item was a cigar box. She used CDs for the first album in the book and the last album was made with floppy disks.
