I was so excited when last week the mailman brought me not just one but two copies of Amy Anderson’s new book,

Mod Podge Rocks!: Decoupage Your World.

 

 

Before I get into the book let me tell you that I love Amy and pretty much everything she does.

Her extraordinary blog is packed with amazing projects all the way from crafts,

fashion, to home decor, and so is her book.

You are going to love it!

 

Before I purchase any craft book there are three things that I am looking for.

I want the book to:

1. Teach Me

2. Inspire Me

3. Show me How

 

I am happy to say that Mod Podge Rocks!: Decoupage Your World contains all three!

 

1

 

Right at the beginning of the book there is a complete guide to Mod Podge

with a walk through of all the formulas. You get to learn which ones are best to use for any specific project.

I have used the regular Mod Podge before but I am excited to use other formulas such as Dimensional Magic

to make jewelry and so many other things. I really like this guide, it is easy to find and follow.

The book is packed with bright colorful gorgeous pictures!

I enjoyed looking at the details in every single featured project.

When I say projects I am talking about over 40 simple, inexpensive decoupage projects from Amy and

some of the hottest names in crafting such as Cathie Filian, Heather Mann, and Candie Cooper.

Did you hear me?

40+

Among my favorites there were the coolest Mod Boots ever, the children’s art charm bracelet

{ pictured above} and this Carnival Ribbon & Ticket Frame… so fun!

My favorite part of the book is that it comes with individual tutorials for each project!

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!

I am a tutorial kind of girl.

One thing is to see a gorgeous picture and another thing is to see how you can make that picture come alive.

The tutorials are easy to follow, with clear instructions, designer notes and tips.

 

 So I am giving this book two thumbs up and a STICKER!

 

Amy congratulations for such an amazing book and thank you for sharing it with us!

Guess what?

We are giving away the second book to one of you during the link party!

Make sure to come back this evening at 6:30 to enter your projects!
