There are hundreds, maybe thousands of books that give marvelous ideas for cardmaking and scrapbooking. Spectacular Cards!: Fabric Paper & Game Board Greetings is one that stands out in the crowd.

The book is really a how-to manual that includes tips and techniques, the necessary tools and equipment, adhesives and embellishments. An added benefit is that there is grid that gives you finished card dimensions.

But the directions (with photographs) for fabric preparation are invaluable and makes it so easy to graduate from using cardstock to fabric for the cards. My fabric stash has a new use! And for all those old board games we all have, there is an entire section on how to decorate them with fabric, paper, photos and embellishments for wonderful mega-size greeting cards.

There are sample cards for every occasion and holiday. The directions are clear and concise and the photographs contribute to the ease of cardmaking. People who are visual learners will be thrilled.

My copy will have a prominent place in my library and will be used often.

Armchair Interviews says: Spectacular Cards!: Fabric, Paper & Game Board Greetings is a keeper. It truly is spectacular!
