A scrapbooking album is where you can store all your completed layouts safely and without the worry of wear and tear. This is a very important piece of scrapbook equipment. When you are selecting your scrapbook album, there are a few things that you should consider before you buy, like size, color/pattern that fits your theme, and which type of binder you would like. Binders come in three styles and which one you use is solely based on your personal preference.
♥ Three ring: The three ring notebook has three metal rings that hold the page protectors inside of the album. It is relatively easy to adjust the contents in your scrapbook album.
♥ Post bound: This album has two to three screw and bolt metal posts that hold the contents of the album into place. You can disassemble and add, as well as remove pages.
♥ Strap-hinge: This a less common album type. These types of albums are designed with 2 to 3 nylon straps.

Refill pages do not come in standard sizes, so before you purchase some, check to see what size your scrapbook requires. On average, albums will be able to hold up to 35 fully fixed page protectors with several layers of embellishments.
You need a scrapbook page stock with an accompanying page protector. A scrapbook page is one of your essentials and getting a stock allows you to have the freedom to create endless scrapbook ideas and page designs. I really recommend that you have spare pages around for you to feed your creative juices to.
To avoid damaging your pictures, use the non-vinyl or the archival-safe kind of protectors. There are two options to pick from when choosing: clear or non-glare page protectors. Clear protectors are known to bring out the colors in the layout, while the non-glare protectors tend to have less glare.
When looking for a pair of scrapbooking scissors, find a pair that is comfortable to hold in your hands. Sharp pair of scissors are a very important piece of scrapbook equipment. You'll be cropping photos and cutting card stock a lot, so it's best to look for a pair of scissors that are designed for arts and crafts.
There are different types of scrapbooking scissors, so how many pairs you need will be determined by what you're planning on doing with your layouts. If you're cutting fabric, look for sharp scissors that can cut fabric. If you're seeking to cut photos with a jagged look, seek jagged edge scissors. There are some creative types of scissors out there!
