Cool Things to Do with the Pictures You Love

by Caroline Herter, Laurie Frankel and Laura Lovett

      Scrapbooking has taken the world by storm. It has enabled a means to turn cherished photos into lifelong keepsakes. At the center of this highly popular craft are the pictures that fill the scrapbooks. The popularity of digital cameras has made capturing that special moment a simple task.

Photocraft: Cool Things to Do with the Pictures You Love puts a new and unique spin on how to use your favorite pictures. It gives you easy-to-follow instructions that will help you convert your photos into everyday practical household items. This book is definitely one of a kind because it offers ideas that will let your imagination run wild.

This book presents the reader with 40 worthwhile projects. Best of all, it doesn't require the user to have any significant computer knowledge. These instructions guide you effortlessly through each project. My all-time must-try includes: Tile-Topped Plant Stand, Pet Place mats, and the shower curtain (Yes, shower curtain, you must see this one to believe it!).

Reading each crafting idea, I was quickly hooked. I caught myself more than once making a mental note of which picture I would use to create that one-of-a-kind look. Crafters, photographers, hobbyist galore this is the must have book that will give you the courage to think outside the box. Very highly recommended.
