Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts is awesome.

Don't be deterred by the hokey picture on the cover of her posing to glue a seashell to an already seashell studded lamp shade, (1990's anyone?).
In the book she has quite a grand variety (in alphabetic order) of crafts with a how-to and a supply checklist. Almost every page spread has a fullsize picture on one side with the other page being the supply list, and the various instructions.

For example:
Under beading, she covers how to make beaded wire insects, flower brooches, hairpins, and necklaces.

She also kindly includes the templates for all the projects in her books, free to download and use on her website! {link here}
