When you are first getting started in scrapbooking there are some basic scrapbook supplies that you will need.
To mount pictures into scrapbooking albums here are some of your choices
There is a large variety of scrap booking paper to choose from (printed and solids). You can either use a full sheet of paper as a background or cut it up and use it as borders or squares behind your pictures. This adds color to your scrapbooking pages. Just make sure that it is acid-free.
Scissors or Edgers
It is a good idea to have a sharp pair of scissors for cutting photos and paper. Edgers are scissors that cut different designs around your pictures and your scrapbook paper. They make your scrapbooking pages a little bit more fun.
Personal Paper Trimmer
This is a nice scrapbooking tool to have because when you want to crop your pictures you can cut a nice straight line.
There are a variety of pens that you can use, from regular gel to metallic gel, to calligraphy for journaling. Just make sure that they are acid-free and archival quality.
Stickers are lots of fun and can dress up a scrapbook in no time at all, they are quick and easy and there are so many to choose from, and the variety is endless.
These shapes are cut by machine out of acid-free paper into different designs to help dress up your scrapbooking pages. You can use decorative chalks to embellish the die cuts.
Oval and Circle Cutter
These are wonderful for cropping your pictures into different size ovals and circles. You can also use them to cut paper into circles and ovals to use as a background for your scrapbook pictures or to make different designs. Just let your imagination go wild.
