This book wasn't what I expected. I guess I didn't read the packaging properly - I didn't realize that it was more about scrapbooking than actual handwriting. The back cover actually refers to journaling, which I do a lot of. I was hoping to make my journal more legible and pretty for when I refer to it later, but Heidi Swapp was really referring to a small, descriptive section of the scrapbook page. I guess she and I have different ideas about what "journaling" is.Swapp offers some decent tips
I'll admit, if it says "Heidi Swapp" on it, I will buy it! I ordered this book and got it as soon as it came out. But after leafing through the whole thing several times, it's still sitting on my shelf. It comes in a cute package and has some fun add-ons (a pencil, a ruler, a pad), but it kind of seems like a glorified magazine article. I was expecting more "how-to's" in terms of how Heidi gets her signature style and creates some of her unique looks. But there wasn't a ton of instruction (I'm s...
This one is hard to rate. Written by a scrapbooker, and designed with scrapbookers in mind, this book is intended to make you feel better about your own handwriting. What is won't do is teach you how to write like the Heidi Swapp. When I was first reading the book and following the exercises, I did see a little improvement in my own writing, and a definite improvement in my acceptance of my own writing (which I've never liked), but... I'm not sure that it has had a lasting effect. The author doe...
I am NOT an idea book person, but i loved this!! I thought my handwriting was fine, but this book gave you so much instruction and insight! It's one of the few books that I predict will be timeless. It also gives you a kit, so you HAVE the materials that you need, and plenty of inspiration from Heidi's layouts. I'd recommend this to any scrapper, whether or not they have insecurities about their handwriting!
A friend gave me this book today. The kit came with an instructional book, a workbook, a pencil, a fine-point pen, a zero-centered ruler, and an eraser. I read the book but didn't use the workbook yet. I am waiting for a weekend to have a bit more time to play with the techniques and the workbook.
Teaches one to be more comfy with their own style of printing/handwriting.. teaches us all how to journal more effectively, and show our artistic ability thru our handwriting! Loved it!
Great exercises for improving your handwriting.
I still hate my handwriting.
