Each project is also categorized by occasion and this is illustrated with a motif key. Projects suitable for birthdays, for instance, are indicated with a symbol of a birthday cake. All the projects can be adapted to a variety of occasions.
Projects also give complete supplies lists, however it is also very easy to substitute stamps and other supplies. Templates are provided to make boxes and other items used in projects.
Rubber Stamping Basics
Supplier information is given with website addresses making it easy to find the supplies online if necessary. Most of the supplies, however, are readily available and should be easy to find in stamping and craft stores.
The book is packed with positive features, the one drawback, however, is that it would be useful to have more information about substituting products. The extensive shopping list that a new rubber stamper would have to draw up to complete more than just a handful of the 100 projects could soon become cost prohibitive. A few hints on how to substitute products - in particular inks, would be welcome. Note: Stampers who own Francoise Read's first rubber stamping book, The Rubber Stamper's Bible will know what to expect and will be familiar with Francoise's friendly yet informative style. There are similarities with The Rubber Stamper's Bible and it should be noted that this is not the second book in a series and therefore some of the same techniques are covered in both books. Most of the projects in 100 Great Ways to Use Rubber Stamps are fresh and innovative and are different enough from the The Rubber Stamper's Bible to provide value.
