step by step
WHEN STARTING YOUR SCRAPBOOK PAGES, it is good to remember that
no two people scrapbook the same way and no two scrapbook pages will turn
out exactly the same. Everyone has their own personal style that shines
through everything from the use of color and embellishments to the choice of
paper and lettering. Scrapbooking is one way to tell your life history, and it
allows you to relive the feelings and occasions as if they happened yesterday.
The best way to start your first scrapbook page is to start with your most
recent photos. Those photos will be the easiest to find and arrange in an album.
You won’t feel so overwhelmed by starting way back at the beginning. Seeing your
most recent photos organized and nicely displayed in an album will inspire you
and give you the motivation and confidence to take on previous years.
Select your scrapbook
With the photo accessories available today, you can do just about anything
with what used to be considered a blank scrapbook page. Scrapbooks can be
anything from very elegant and simple to elaborate and ornate.
Photo-safe materials. Some albums are made with cardboard, plastic or
adhesives that are not archival safe, causing photos to deteriorate. Make sure
that any product you use is both acid and lignin free.
