When you're learning how to scrapbook, you should search your kitchen for scrapbook materials, chances are that you have several things in the kitchen that can easily be used in creating a scrapbook. For instance:
♥ old recipe cards – Old handwritten recipe cards add a special touch to scrapbooking pages that are about cooking, family reunions, or a family tree. You can even create a recipe scrapbook!
♥ brown paper bags – Cut paper bags along the seams and use them as the background for some of your
♥ scrapbook pages. The brown paper can also be used for framing photos on a page.
♥ decorative paper plates – Turn your leftover paper plates into fun easy
♥ embellishments. Cut out the designs and adhere them onto a page. Add little sequins for texture.
♥ tea bags – Brew a tea bag and let the bag dry for about a half hour. Then carefully press the bag in random spots on your scrapbook page. It will give your scrapbook spread a vintage appeal.
♥ sunflower seeds – Sunflower, flax and other seeds can be used to provide texture to a page. Adhere them in groups of three in a few spots on a scrapbook spread.
For example, choose one or two photos to use for the layout.
Mat the photos by using a basic template, such as an oval shape or rectangular shape. Mat a square piece of stock paper for journaling. Using letter rubber stamps, create a title for the page. Embellish with scrapbook stickers and confetti.

Turn those old sentimental items into works of art.
Have you been holding onto a favorite blouse, sweater or a special pillow case that your aunt made for you? As you're learning how to scrapbook, these items are perfect for embellishing your scrapbook pages. Here's how:
♥ buttons – Do you have a container of buttons that are just too cute to toss away? Buttons add a great touch as you scrapbook cards or calendars.
♥ felt – Turn the felt from an old purse or sweater into flowers. Because felt is thin and lightweight, it works well for scrapbook pages, cards and most any project.
♥ embroidered art – That embroidered pillow case that you've held onto for years is a true work of art. Cut a section of the art and either hem the sides or edge with a neutral ribbon. Use the piece in a scrapbooking project that you're making for a family member. This will certainly become a cherished memento.
♥ suede – Turn that suede shirt that you can't seem to part with into the cover of a photo album. Take a binder that you're no longing using, add the suede and you have the start of a great scrapbook album.
♥ cloth belt – Old cloth belts can be cut and used as borders for scrapbook pages. They also work well for making personalized bookmarkers for friends.
