Creative Foundations is a very informative book with clear and well-illustrated instructions on executing 40 techniques that can be used for both scrapbooking and mixed media projects.

While I wasn't looking at this book for "scrapbooking" ideas, I did get some creative ideas about how to create some interesting framing around family pictures.

I would recommend borrowing it so you can save you $ for supplies in making the fun things inside this book.

This is a must-have book for any crafter. The techniques were easy to follow, approachable, and most importantly -- beautiful! I could see myself using most of these techniques in my own projects, and I know I'll be referring to this book again and again. This one's definitely going on my keeper shelf!
