If you are new to the world of scrapbooking, you might find it very exciting to purchase several scrapbook supplies and equipment even before you create your very first page. It is highly tempting especially when you see so much wonderful scrapbooking inspiration online or through your fellow scrappers. However, this might also become overwhelming and let's be honest, not that budget-friendly for beginners.
There are endless scrapbooking supplies out in the market. But it is important to remember that each scrapper has his or her own scrapbooking style. Therefore, it is key to find your style and know what works for you first before you plunge right into building your scrapbooking stash.

It is imperative that this is number one on your supplies shopping list! Cardstock is what scrappers use as the base for scrapbook layouts. It is the main building block for your page.
There are several designs available in bookstores or craft stores. I suggest you stock up a lot on plain ones and also on some patterned papers. As I have mentioned, this is the main building block of your page. Therefore, it will make up most of it too. Because of this, it is important to make sure that the colors or the patterns you buy are to your liking.

Ephemeras are little trinkets of memorabilia like bus stubs, movie tickets, postcards, travel maps, packaging, flyers, newspapers, the list goes on. They usually represent a memory that is associated with it and hence, people like to put them in scrapbooks.
In our modern world, however, ephemeras have become more than just a memorabilia, it has evolved into a decorating element or embellishments in our scrapbooks. Because of this, manufactured ephemeras became really popular.
There are a lot of them readily available in craft stores, mostly coming in big bags. They are no longer limited to bus stubs, train tickets, or brochures. They come in all designs and colors you can choose from!
Stamps are a really great way to decorate your scrapbook pages. From wooden rubber stamps to the clear stamps, they give your page a unique and interesting look.
As you are beginner and only starting out, I suggest you choose designs that are both aesthetic and functional. My favorite stamp set that I bought when I was starting out was an alphabet wooden rubber stamp set. You can use it in creating the titles of your pages!
Clear stamps are also wonderful. They are a little bit more expensive and require a bit more effort to care for but the stamped image you get is much more vivid and detailed.
To use clear stamps, you will be needing an acrylic block. So make sure to also buy one of those when you purchase your clear stamps. They are sold in several shapes and sizes but I suggest you check for the biggest clear stamp you have and buy the acrylic block that fits it. This way, you would not have to buy many sizes of acrylic blocks at first. You can buy the smaller sizes as you expand your scrapbook stash.
