I love the book: Making Your Own Greeting Cards & Gift Wrap, which I received from Fox Chapel Publishing. It’s a great book, with holidays covered, as well. I’ve been working on some Easter Cards, and have had the help of this book. All of the Holiday stuff is really gorgeous, especially for this time of year.
Great Things about this book:
The step-by-step guides are great. Even someone that doesn’t do crafts often, like myself, would be able to do these items. They make it so simple, and even have pages in the back with guides to making some of the projects. Like there’s an oval, for an Easter Egg.
The projects walk you through the entire process, from beginning to end, with ease. There’s also wedding projects, Halloween projects, which will be perfect for when School starts back up in the Fall, etc.
You need this book, whether you are a crafter or not. I’m telling you, you will use this book.

Laura Barrett is the 41-year-old artist with down syndrome behind Laura’s Greetings. Painting has been a passion of hers since childhood and with the help of her aid Hannah Lee and Lee’s husband, Laura transformed her art into clever greeting cards. Those who know Laura feel she has one other interest that rivals art: Zac Efron. She has posters of him everywhere in her room including a life-sized cardboard cutout. She often goes about her day wearing a lanyard with his picture in it! Laura’s other favorite things include dogs and ice cream cake.
