A Main Selection for Crafter's Choice Book Club Elegant, artistic, inspiring, magical---all terms used to describe Magenta, a unique company in Quebec, Canada, whose glorious papercrafting products and work are sought after and admired by papercrafters. An inspiring combination of inventive ideas, tips, and techniques on creating memorable projects, offering more than fifty imaginative scrapbook pages, album covers, cards, invitations, stationery, picture frames, Christmas tree ornaments, decorative boxes, all with distinctive treatment---Magenta Style: lavish, rich color, texture, and embellishments. Each main project offers a technique and variations---a change in the color palette, or a different composition using the same materials or techniques, or a smaller type of project (card vs. frame or album cover) using the same materials or techniques. Learn the 'Magenta' way to use rubber stamps, stickers, sumptuous embellishments, colored pencils, inks, or decorative paper and how to get the most from a variety of materials, even how to adapt the projects to use materials from other sources.  Known for their meticulous attention to detail and imaginative projects, this is first book to showcase the unique and always elegant Magenta Style Paper Magic.
