Patterned Papers

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.

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.

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.
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.
