Top Scrapbooking Idea Books of 2007

Scrapbooking idea books bring loads of ideas, how-to’s, techniques and layout inspiration. They are a wonderful addition to any scrapbooker’s bookshelf, however should be purchased carefully. All those idea books can add up in cost, and take up a lot of valuable room if they aren’t being used.

It is also difficult to know which idea books to get when you don’t know anything about them. You can either check them out at the library or find other sources to borrow or look through them before deciding if you want to purchase them.

These are the books that got top reviews, were the rave among scrapbookers and continue to aid in inspiration.
