How To Scrapbook: Start A Scrapbook In 4 Easy Steps
If you want to know how to scrapbook then follow these 4 easy steps and you'll be well on your way to capturing and preserving your most precious memories for many years to come.
Tips on Organising Your Photos Before Making a Scrapbook
Before you get swept up in the excitement and start dreaming about all the pages you're going to make, it's important to make sure that all the photos you intend on using are neatly organised. This ensures that nothing gets lost and generally makes for a much more enjoyable, stress-free experience.

As most scrapbooking ideas are based on one subject, it's best to sort all the photos into themes, such as 'family', 'friends', 'holidays' etc. This can either be done with the printed, physical copies in your hands, or on a computer by making a designated folder for all your resources. By sorting your pictures into themes, they are easily found whenever you find yourself inspired with ideas and wanting to scrapbook!
Step 1
Step 2
Picking a theme for your page
Once you're organised, it's time to browse some simple scrapbook ideas or think about what you might want to create a page on.

This can be literally anything – your last family holiday, a wedding, your children's first days at school. Whatever you decide, it's important to have a clear understanding of what the page should convey in terms of theme and emotion. Then you can decide whether you want to keep the page sweet and simple with just photos, titles and memorobilia, or if you would like to add some extra sentiment by journaling your thoughts, feelings and memories about this theme.

Now you can begin thinking of what embellishments you would like to use, which are little features that can bring a page to life with their quirky, colourful or otherwise interesting characteristics.

A good example of an embellishment is a button or ribbon. Once you have some good scrapbook ideas and know what and how you would like to embellish your page, you are ready to sketch your layout. You can do this on a plain piece of A4 and roughly draw what photo, title, journaling and embellishment will go where. Planning your page means that you will have a clearer idea of where things will go once you move on to the real page. It also means you'll never find yourself in a position where you've got no room left for any kind of journal entries (this used to happen to me regularly!)
The supplies and equipment you will need when making a scrapbook
While careful planning and an eye for bargain items can save you money, investing in the right resources for your scrap book endeavour is worth it in terms of time and effort in the long run.

Here's some of the equipment and supplies I suggest you get so you can get started right away bringing your scrapbook ideas to life:
  • scrapbookers scissors
  • easy stick adhesives or glue sticks
  • an album with sheet protectors
  • paper trimmer
  • markers
  • colored cardstock
  • themed or pattern scrapbook pages
  • ruler
  • oval template
  • embellishments such as stickers and buttons
  • albums (to store all your pages that are on a similar theme)
  • a memory book (to keep notes of the occassions you intend on scrapping)
  • a notebook (to jot down title ideas or sayings as and when they pop into your mind)
  • your diary (if you have one! To recall your 'feelings' or 'emotions' during the occassions you want to scrap)
You will be able to find these items at almost any good craft store or, alternatively, you can choose to buy from online shops that deliver to your area.
Step 3
Step 4
Getting started!
Once you've gathered your photos, supplies and had a browse through our archive of cool scrapbook ideas, it's time for the exciting part.

Pick your paper – for beginners, neutral is a good colour as it's easiest to blend pictures and embellishments with them – by holding up the photos and seeing what they will look like together. That way, when you get home you won't have any problem with coordinating your features with the card stock!

This is the first step to making your pages look like beautiful artwork! And often just doing this simple step will spark layout ideas for me – such as doing a collage, or a photo grid style layout!

If you want to avoid finding all the components of your scrapbook yourself, many craft stores sell scrapbooking kits that not only come with a range of wonderful embellishments but also simple options to bring your creativity to life! We even have a number of tutorials, scrapbook ideas and books available, including '10,000 Instant Scrapbook Page Titles' and '525 New and Inspiring Scrapbooking Sketches'. Whether you're a beginner or an expert, you'll never experience scrapping block again!
