Advice on scrapbooking please?

Snowflake posts:

Have decided to do a scrapbooking project – family holidays – as I have loads and loads of pictures that sit on the hard-drive on my lappie and never see the light of day!! Has anyone got any hints on how to ensure it’s successful – this is my first scrapbooking project and would appreciate any useful advice. Thanks.

    Try Cricut. It’s a cutting machine that works wonders.

    Well in a nutshell, there are a few options you have…

    *Do a traditional scrapbook. Buy an album. Adhere photos to album. Add journaling. Embellish as you wish.

    *Do a digital scrapbook. Buy a program or find one online with templates. Upload your photos onto the template. Print (need printer to be able to do 12 x 12 if you want or just do 8 1/2 x 11). You can also add your own embellishments to the pages if you want after printing.

    *Do a photo book. Go to online photo printing site (,,,, etc). Upload your photos. Design your book and order it. It will arrive in the mail all bound like a paperback and everything! Amazing!!

    So, just depends on what you want. Do you have limited time? Go with digital or photo book. If you want to be 100% hands-on, go traditional (traditional also costs a little more because you need to invest in paper, tools, stickers, etc). If you just want it done and love doing it from your computer chair, do the photo book!

    Hope this helps!!! Best of luck. :)

    Well, the best thing is if you “screw it up” you can just reprint the pictures and start over. Remember that when you’re working and it’ll ease the tension. I suggest using a binder type scrap book instead of an already binded book. That way you can add pages and move them around at your leisure. Try getting a scrapbooking magazine and visit scrapbooking sites. A good magazine for beginners is Simply Scapbooks. Most of all have fun! You’ll LOVE having your pictures in a binder you can show people when they come for a visit. Good luck!!!

    You can get kits that have paper and embellishments that all coordinate….can’t go wrong with that!
