The Complete Photo Guide to Cardmaking by Judi Watanabe

The book, The Complete Photo Guide to Cardmaking by Judi Watanabe is a perfect illustrated book of examples and guidance to making some lovely homemade cards. Instead, of spending money to buy a premade card, this book will show you some great ideas you can use to make you own, especially if your into scrapbooking, card making already, or any other paper crafts. The book is full of tools to use, different examples for all types of occassions and each one is simple to make. However, the one thing I'd like to mention is that these cards they share examples and guidance to create, are all done in a few steps and don't even take two full pages. So there is no doubt that these are very simple for all beginners and experts out there, with the illustrated directions and each small step by step text.
I have to say that the card featured on page 186, with its interesting design to a simple white piece of paper. Plus, I can recreate it with many different colored pages and designs to get a whole new style and design. It's just a fun way to use what I can see in this book and also remake it totally different. However, I honestly love all the card designs in this book! It's very helpful to get me creating some fun cards with each very decorative and impressive card shared in this book.  A few of the cards shared inside this book are like the ones with flowers, some that uses cord, origami, framing and just so much fun decorative ideas! The best part is that in the beginning of the book, there is a full list of tools and helpful items you could use to create these magnificent cards. Not only do they look great, but I love that it's homemade and came from the heart. 
Finally, this is a terrific book! Everything is easy to follow as for the photos inside show you step by step procedures to create these lovely cards. Plus, this isn't such a small book, with 224 pages it's got so many fun cards anyone can make and easy to follow directions. Plus, if your like me, the book is so colorful and very attractive to the eye, encouraging me to read into the book and try creating more of these cards for any holiday, birthday, or just to say thank you or get well soon!
