Scrapbooking help?

This summer, I wanted to make a scrapbook of graduation and my past year @ school. Any ideas of how/where I should start? (ie: where to get an inexpensive album, and stickers..?)

Even Wal-Mart carries a fairly good scrapbooking section for beginners now. They have albums, paper, stickers...but a craft store like Jeffrey Alans or Hobby Lobby will have a much larger selection. Also, there are stores devoted wholly to scrapbook supplies but they're usually privately run so I don't know that you'd have one nearby. I live in a -very- small town yet there is a scrapbooking store probably 10 blocks from my house. 🙂

Start at the beginning and work up to graduation. I always work with a calendar on hand so that I can make sure I'm putting the events in the actual order they occurred and not just trying to work from memory. I also make sure to label and write on each page so that I can remember the significance of the event/photo.

Hope this helps!

Budgeted Scrapbooking - Minimize The Cost, Maximize The Fun!

You do not have to spend a lot of money on scrapbooking supplies for it to be an interesting and fulfilling hobby. It can be as cheap as you want it to be, within reason, or as expensive. For scrapbooking enthusiasts the joy comes from the finished product.

For getting the necessary products you can opt for any one of the three types of shops that may be prevalent in the market according to your budget. One may be the kind of shops which sell quality products at a regular price. Number two are those who sell products at a discounted price and number three are those who sell both. You can choose the place according to your needs. However, if you want the work to be less stressful, you can opt for buying the products through the internet.

For saving on the costs you can compare the prices of the necessary supplies offered by different websites and then zero in on the brand that you want to buy and the one which does not burn a hole in your pocket. This way, you will be able to make proper use of your limited budget as well as save money wherever possible.

If you are new to scrapbooking, then it does not require a lot of start-up money. There will be some necessary scrapbooking tools and pages that you will need to purchase but they will not break the bank. Once you have the basics you can begin assembling your scrapbook.

The most important piece for scrapbooking is the actual scrapbook album. It is what binds all of your scrapbook layouts and scrapbooking pages together. The right album will have a thick cover and will be easy to open.

You will want to find a decent sized album to hold all of your finished pages so keep this in mind when buying one. After you have acquired the scrapbook journal or album, it is time to move on to the rest of the project.

When buying scrapbook pages, it is important to make sure they are acid-free. As well, the ink you use has to be suitable for writing in your scrapbook. You do not want the ink bleeding through to the next page and possibly ruining a picture.

So be aware of the type of scrapbook paper that you buy. You may not want to invest in the best quality but you most certainly do not want to use just any old type of paper.

Another huge expense in the scrapbooking world is the sticker machine. This is a machine that turns pictures into stickers. It takes the place of die cuts. You can buy special paper that has the sticker material on the back and it will use the paper until it is completely gone. There are also three dimensional stickers that can go on the scrapbook pages.

If you are looking for scrapbooking suppliers, then you need to check out Anna Griffin and Martha Stewart's line of their supplies and kits. The supplies can be found at craft stores, such as Hobby Lobby and Michael's Crafts Supplies.

Just bear in mind that the more individualized and decorated scrapbook albums will be more expensive. It is best to start off slowly and gradually get into the swing of scrapbooking before you start to make a lot of purchases.
