Just starting to scrapbook.. What are the basic supplies that I need? ?

I am putting this stuff of my christmas list, what should I ask for??

I've been scrapbooking for over 10 years so my recommedations are:

a cutter that is at least 12" long - there are shorter ones on the market but there are a lot of papers that are 12 X 12 and you'll need a 12" cutter to cut them

cardstock - a lot of albums have the drop in page protectors which means that card stock you purchase creates the page. You'll want coordinating colors.

decorative paper - there are a lot of papers out on the market - most but not all are double sided. Again it needs to coordinate with your cards stock

adhesive - I prefer the repositionable Dotto for attaching photos to the page. That way if you ever want to pull that photo to make a copy or if you want to redo your pages in the future your photo will be to pull your photos out and use them.

permanent adhesive - I've been using Tombow adhesive for years - you can use this for attaching your card stock layers to each other and other things on your page. It's the one that has a blue see through case. You may need someone to show you how to use it the first time.

a pair of scissors for cutting detail images.

embellishments - these are optional. There are all kinds of accesories you can purchase to add to your pages - riboon, stickers, die cuts, chipboard, buttons, and more. Some people like a lot of bling on their pages.

That brings me to make a comment here which is for you to keep in mind that the photos are what needs to stand out on your pages - not all of the stuff you add to your pages. Personally I prefer to create pages that are more simple without a lot of do-dads and bling.

Those are the basics from there you can add acquire over time all kinds of other tools such as

a circle cutter - Coluzzle or perhaps the circle and oval cutting system from Creative Memories would be a good choice. Personally I'd prefer the Creative Memories circle and oval cutting systems for their ease of use.

punches - there are all kinds of punches out on the market and there are all kinds of ideas out there for creative projects

Cropodile - a really cool tool that punches holes and sets eyelets

ink and rubber stamps

I would recommend finding a Stampin Up demonstrator in your area because she would be able to help you get started as SU has what area called Simply Scrappin Kits which make it easy to create pages that coordinate.

The second web site below is one which has a lot of ideas and challenges for scrapbooking. In the Gallery there is a section just for scrapbook pages.

I would recommend getting papers from one company such as Stampin Up. You'll want card stock and decorative papers that are quality.

Stampin Up has 48 colors in their line besides the neutral colors and 6 In Colors. In Colors are in the catalog for a year and are available in dye ink, 81/2 X 11 and 12 X 12 card stock and coordinating ribbons.

I really like their line of products not only due to the quality but also because the colors coordinate so well with each other.

I hope you get what the theings you need to start your new hobby.

Have fun with it!!
