If you haven't already discovered the joys of scrapbooking
, why not try it out and commemorate your next important event with its scrapbook? A treasured momento of a special occasion, scrapbooks can be a lot of fun to make, but you should be sure you have the basic scrapbooking supplies before getting started. Besides your photos and your memories, we've picked out the most crucial scrapbooking supplies you'll need.
The first of your scrapbooking supplies you'll want to pick out is a scrapbook album, such as the Pioneer Black and White Embroidered 12X12 Scrapbook
. With this scrapbook, you'll get ten top-loading, clear, and seamless polypropylene sheet protectors as well as ten heavy white page inserts to give you 20 sides of paper
. As the screwpost binding allows pages to lie flat, you can add as many 12X12 refill pages that you want. Keep your photos and memories safe with this scrapbook album with its durable and washable cover with an expanding library spine.
Once you've selected the perfect album, you're ready for more scrapbooking supplies. A good pair of scissors is nice, but a paper trimmer
like Fiskars Personal Paper Trimmer
is even better. Able to cut up to five sheets
of 20-pound paper or two sheets of 65-pound cardstock at a time, this handy scrapbooking supply features an eight and three-fourths-inch cut length, one-fourth-inch grid lines, and a metric ruler. Lightweight and compact, you can pop it into any three-ring binder
and carry it with you to any scrapbooking parties you attend.
When it comes to adhesive scrapbooking supplies, scrapbookers swear by 3M Scotch Adhesive Roller and Refill of Photo Tabs
. So much neater than glue, these double-sided adhesive dots dispense easily on a liner. Acid-free and completely safe for your treasured photos, this scrapbooking supply gives you the ability to precisely place both straight and curved applications. Stored in a hinged cover to protect the tape, you can easily replace the cartridge with a refill.
You'll want to carefully select the last of our scrapbooking supplies, scrapbooking paper, because it will be the foundation of your scrapbook's appearance. Stores such as Oriental Trading Company sell packs of scrapbooking paper, such as Handmade Paper
, a pack of 24 sheets in 12 assorted colors for $5. You can also find packs of coordinating scrapbooking paper in themes like Christmas
, and even St. Patrick's Day
