About the book:

Mod Podge Rocks!: Decoupage Your World

According to the Lark Crafts site:

Mod Podge Rocks! features over 40 simple, inexpensive decoupage projects that showcase the versatility of this celebrated product. Contemporary, fun, and welcoming—just like author Amy Anderson’s popular Mod Podge Rocks! website-the book includes everything from home accessories and holiday decor to wearables and jewelry. Joining Amy herself as guest project designers are some of the hottest names in crafting, such as Cathie Filian and Candie Cooper. A basic section outlines the simple techniques, and each project features beauty shots, easy-to-follow instructions, and how-to photos.

What I loved:
1. In case you’re new to the world of decoupage, the book begins with an introduction to Mod Podge, and explains the properties and uses of the different formulas.

This section is helpful to beginners, but it also makes a great quick reference sheet for more experienced Podgers.

2. The Basic Techniques section shows you how to prepare surfaces and materials for decoupaging, then takes you through the complete process with clear and easy to follow step-by-step instructions. This section also outlines the “Mod Podge Tool Kit” that will be used for all of the projects in the book. The result: At the end of this section, even a total Mod Podge novice will feel prepared to take on any project in the book.

3. The instructions for each project are clear, complete, and easy to follow. From the start, you’ll know exactly what you need and what to do to achieve the results shown in the book.

4. The book contains more than 40 projects, including wearables, home decor, and holiday projects.

If you were expecting only paper crafts, think again. The projects featured in this book range from the geeky and beautiful to the downright hip! I included a few of my favorites above.

    I am addicted to mod podge. I would have to say most of my pajama pants and old jeans are covered in matte and glossy podge. I am huge into decoupaging bird houses.

  2. Cat says:

    I’d love to win this giveaway because I’ve *never* used ModgePodge and it makes me feel like a craft-loser. I’d love to experiment with the projects in the book!

  3. I have been using mod podge for a multitude of projects for over 20 years!!!! I have decoupaged large barrels and small thread spools…love it. And I have been finding so many new ways to use it through some pins on pinterest. I would love to enter to win this package. Thanks and have a great day

  4. Lizzi says:

    Opps. I entered, then realised that I am in the UK and I can’t win.
    That will teach me to read things first! Sorry!

    Anyway, I am very sad about it as this prize looks amazing! :D
    Thanks for having a great blog too!

  5. Cindy Neidt says:

    I haven’t used ModPodge since I was a kid but I’ve seen so many cool projects lately that I’m ready to try it again.

  6. MelodyJ says:

    Happy Friday! What can I say other than I LOVE Mod Podge! There are so many things you can use it for & my kids love it for their crafts too! Have a GREAT weekend!

  8. KWolff says:

    I love that anyone can use this product and get fun results. It seems as if the brilliant crafters of the world have figured out that Mod Podge can be used for a lot more than just decorating plates! I have so much fun with every Mod Podge project.

  9. DeAun says:

    I’m a newbie to crafting and i’ve read and seen soo many different things you can do with mod podge! I’ve got a binder full of projects i’ve been waiting to do!

  10. Colleen says:

    I found Mod Podge kind of addictive. Once you do a project with it, you start looking around your house for more things to decoupage.

  11. Sydney Y says:

    I originally got Mod Podge to cover small cross-stitchrd things, but lately I’ve been using it on my quilled pieces. It’s just so versatile!

  12. Shel Strickland says:

    I grew up using mod podge in the 70’s. This is about the coolest craft item around. And now it is a book? It just go cooler…

  13. Randal Bradford says:

    I really enjoy Mod Podge because you can do soooo much with it….I like the “retro” aspect of it ..and I like to experiment with the different Mod Podge formulas…I’m in the process of “experimenting” with mixing outdoor podge with some outdoor acrylic paint and paint this on plexiglass and make a faux stained panel to hang outdoors in the garden… great product!!!

  14. Denise P says:

    Great giveaway! I’ve still never tried Mod Podge even after recommending it dozens of times when I worked at Michael’s a few years ago! This would be a GREAT prize to win! Thanks for the chance!

  15. Penny Harrison says:

  16. Anna Rueda-Barrie says:

    Wow – brings back lots of happy memories of making things with my mom! Mod Podge bottles always were lying around the house. Love the stuff, and am inspired to start working with it again. What an awesome giveaway package!

  17. mark mihalko says:

    I am just getting into doing craft projects with my daughters and this (modge podge) seems like a really neat crafting process to do.

  18. Jackie says:

    I totally love Mod Podge. I have used it for several projects and would like to learn more about its uses and build upon my current inspirations. I am currently adding fabric to an old gentlemans dresser to create a craft station for my goodies.

  19. Debra Boros Erikson says:

    Just used the last of my Modge Podge on a recycling project. I recycled a Large mailing envelope by creating a collage on one side including catalogue pages and map scrapes of where my kids reside. I will use it to hold ephemera for future projects. Need that Modge Podge!!!!
