Basic Supplies to Start

Cardstocks
Solid-colored plain or textured, acid-free papers. Usually used as background papers and as photo mats.
Patterned Papers
Acid-free papers with designs or prints. You can use them as photo mats, as background papers, as part of your page accents and such.
Scissors
Crafts scissors or a pair of straight-cut scissors you can use to crop your photos and to cut down your papers to desired sizes.
Adhesives
Acid-free glue. There’s liquid glue, glue-dots and glue-tapes.
Journaling Pen
Pens used on your scrapbook layouts should preferably be pigment ink, acid-free, waterproof, fade proof and non-bleeding. Such pens are easily available at scrapbook stores.
Scrapbook Album
A scrapbook album is the “house” for your layouts. After completing each scrapbook layout, just slot them into your scrapbooking album for protection and viewing.
Embellishments
You’ll be amazed by the variety of embellishments available to the scrapbookers. From buttons, ribbons, fibers, beads to metal frame, It’s really an eye-popping experience shopping for embellishments. Embellishments are the “extras”.
With these basic supplies, let’s move on to the step-by-step guide on how to make a scrapbook.

Simply Start Writing

To get the story out of you and on to your scrapbook layout, just start writing or typing.

There’s no better time than now to start.

Or you can start with doodling on scrap paper! I’m not kidding. Somehow seeing something with ink on paper will start your writing juice flowing. Our brain has a way of wanting to fill up that piece of paper with more ink and perhaps words.

What? Not even a single word or doodle? Here’s a last resort.

Find a book or magazine, take a paragraph from anywhere and start copying it down without thinking.

As long as you get your fingers moving, it’ll somehow activate your left-brain activity and your own words will start arriving.

Seriously, just start by writing little descriptions on scraps of paper or typing some words on the screen.

Even though your initial writing might be a strain to read and probably not making much sense,
