Scrapbooking is a fun way to preserve personal and family memories. And getting started doesn't require a huge investment: all you need are your photos, your memories and a few basic supplies.
To start your scrapbook, you'll need a scrapbook album and sheet protectors. You'll also need cardstock, which will form the base of your scrapbook pages, and patterned, acid-free scrapbook paper to frame your photos and accent your pages.
Scrapbooking involves a lot of cutting, which you can do with a simple pair of straight-cut scissors. As you get more involved, however, you may want to invest in craft scissors with decorative edges or in a die-cut machine, which can effortlessly produce a wide variety of shapes. Paper trimmers are very useful for cutting straight edges.
You'll also need adhesives. Glue sticks and double-sided tape are both good options. Glue dots are great for attaching embellishments, and spray adhesives can help with hard-to-stick items.
As your scrapbook develops, you'll find yourself shopping for the perfect embellishments. From stamps to ribbons, beads and paper flowers, the options for embellishing your scrapbook pages are virtually endless.
At Walmart, you'll find a wide variety of scrapbooking and paper craft supplies at Everyday Low Prices, so you can get the most out of your hobby without breaking the bank. Save money. Live better.
