Choosing an album
What is safe for my photos?
How do I make my first page?
Where can I buy supplies?
Buying everything that is "cute"-
It is better to buy supplies for a specific project. no matter how cute that sail boat die
cut is, if you never go sailing it may not ever get used! Your style of scrapbooking may
change, too, as you learn to scrapbook.
Buying a lot of stuff before you get started-
It can be over whemling to get too many supplies before you even make a page. Get
your basic supplies and make a few simple pages, Then start shopping with the project in
mind. If you are working on Christmas pages, then buy enough paper and stickers to go with
that theme and get the pages done. Extra supplies can really be a burden as they add up.
Buying a lot of supplies before you have a place
to store them- Even as a beginner, you need to have a place to keep your supplies.
But an organizer that can grow with you. Leeco Industries makes a number of scrapbooking
organization tools that are part of a system. Highsmith makes acid free cardboard storage
modules that can work as part of your scrapbooking storage.
