Scrapbooking Supplies R Us
Scrapbooking has grown in popularity and there are a wide variety of scrapbooking albums to choose from. You will want to choose a scrapbook album that best suits your needs and that your will be proud to display your photos and memorabilia in. You may choose from a variety of sizes and colors as well as strap-hinge, post bound or three-ring. Whatever styles you choose make sure that you keep some basic things in mind for your scrapbooking album.
Do not use magnetic scrapbooking albums - The chemicals used to make the pages sticky can eventually damage your photographs.
Select quality archival scrapbooking albums. Choose a scrapbooking album that will hold up well when handled a lot. Make sure that it is sturdy.
Make sure that the manufacturer warranties and guarantees a scrapbooking album before you buy it, or any scrapbooking supplies that you may purchase.
These scrapbook albums are held together by a plastic strap binding which allows you to add lots of pages to your scrapbooking album. These scrapbooking album pages are able to lie flat because of the binding.
These scrapbooking albums come in a variety of sizes (12" x 12", 8 ½" x 11", 7" x 5 ½") and colors. The scrapbooking pages should be heavy-weight and acid and lignin-free. Your photos or mementos can be mounted directly on both sides of the page. Pages come in white or black. Pages also come in expand-a-page which are perfect for panoramic layouts.
It is best to buy slip on scrapbooking page protectors that are crystal clear and distortion free. They slip directly over your scrapbook pages which will enhance your photo pages. They will also preserve your scrapbooking photos and protect them from fingerprints, spills, deterioration, discoloration and dust which might harm you photos.
Metal posts hold the scrapbooking pages together in this type of scrap booking album. The posts keep the scrapbooking pages tight together like a book binding. The selling point of this scrapbooking album is that it will accept unlimited refill pages (you add a post along with every 5 refill pages).
These scrapbooking albums come in a variety of colors and sizes (12" x 12", 8 ½" x 11", 5" x 7"). You can purchase refill pages in both white and black. These scrapbooking albums come with the page protectors on them already so that you do not have to purchase them separately. You simply take the heavy-weight scrapbooking page (which is acid-free and lignin-free) out of the page protector and mount your photos and whatever else you want to decorate your page with and then slip it back into the scrapbooking page protector. The scrapbooking page protectors are sealed on the both sides and the bottom. This way your photographs are kept safe from fingerprints, spills and any dust or pollution that might harm your pictures.
Whatever style of scrapbooking album you choose make sure that it will meet your needs, because albums will keep your photos in good condition and make your memories live on.
