Open up those scrapbooks and journals to find a wealth of material for découpage, transfers, and designs. All the techniques are explained, with over 40 unique projects that include a Vacation Memory Box, Baby Door Sign, Beaded Photo Purse, and Beveled Glass Ornament. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.

Review:

Scrapbooks may be the most obvious way to corral treasured photographs, but many other items also lend themselves to memory crafting. In Memory Gifts: Preserving Your Treasured Past in Special Ways, Marie Browning offers an assortment of ideas for utilizing photos in home accessories and a few wearables.

Through such methods and media as decoupage, polymer clay, image transfer, pour- on resin, and mounting under glass and mica, Browning adorns boxes, decorative plates, candles, desk accessories, switch plates, coasters, pillows, T-shirts, jewelry, frames, and ornaments. Sometimes she combines photos with relevant trinkets, like seashells--to commemorate a seaside vacation--on a straw wreath, or sports memorabilia in a shadowbox.

Directions, unfortunately, are sometimes inadequate, and some projects are simply described and not fully explained. A better source list would also have helped--the acknowledgments mentions manufacturers but does not give full contact information for hard-to-find specialty items such as mica sheets, dye pens, and calendar blanks. Still, there are some nice ideas here for crafters seeking to move beyond the memory album approach to working with photographs, and most of the projects are fairly simple. --Amy Handy
