Other important things to considerThere are some other important things to consider when choosing a photo album in addition to the materials used in the construction of the album itself. These will determine how well your photographs will survive over time.Choose a photo album that is acid-free to protect the surface of your photographs and preserve your memories from damaging chemicals
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.
Types of Photo Albums.Leather photo albums come in a few styles. There are some that are polished and professional looking. Others have a more rustic, artisan look and feel. The pages may be hand-torn and hand-stitched to create an authentic handmade appearance. Full-grain leather with scars and imperfections makes the album appear aged.
Some other supplies that you will need can be found right inside your home, like a ruler, tweezers, cotton swabs, and cookie cutters. A ruler is indispensable if you want to produce straight lines and edges, while tweezers can be used to pick up tiny items that are impossible to grab with your fingers. They are also great for precision handling while you attach small objects to your page.
