Albums And Frames / August 7, 2018 / Alondra Washington.
Before you decide on the best album for you, check and see the many options that are available. Combining the options, colors and styles are all up to each individual's needs and likes. It is a fun process that you will not only be able to enjoy and look back on, but also something you will be proud of.
Choosing the size and style of the album you will be using plays a very important role in how you will then proceed with the rest of your scrapbook project. There are many album styles and sizes to choose from. Just pay a quick visit to any crafts store and you'll see what I mean. The most common sizes are the 12"x12" and the 9"x9" sizes. There are also a few other sizes available, but these two are the most used among scrapbookers. If you feel intimidated by the large 12"x12" album, you can downgrade to a 9"x9" or even 8"x10" size.
You will then need scissors for cutting, cropping, and trimming. A simple pair of scissors will do if you're just starting out, and you can buy a few more pairs for specialized purposes later on as you need them. But whatever kind of scissors you are using, you should always check to see that they are clean and sharp. Using a dull pair of scissors will do more harm than good, especially for your scrapbooking. Whether you're using ordinary or decorative scissors, you will want to have them always sharp, so that they produce a clean edge every time.
These are the basic supplies and materials that you will need for your first scrapbook projects. You will eventually find yourself needing more tools and materials as your skills and interest in the craft progresses, but I recommend that you do not buy all of the materials at once. You will just waste money because you won't be able to use all of them when you're just starting out, so it's better to wait until you've been scrapbooking for a while and you feel like you can comfortably step up to the next level.
