Scrapbooking is undoubtedly one of the more creative past times.
Whether it is something that you as an individual have made a practice of doing on the regular or you, along with a group of friends do together, it is a hobby that one can never get tired of.
Recollecting memories or a fun event, an amazing year or creating a scrap book of family photos all have one thing in common. Each of these scrapbooks made are close to the heart.
Choose your topic
The first thing that you will need to do is decide on a topic. It can be as simple as “A beautiful friendship”, “a trip down memory lane” or “a look back at the year ….”
Either way, choosing your topic will help you to focus on what your scrap book will be and exactly what it will contain. This will also set the tone of how creative you can be. It is at this point that you will decide the pictures you want to include as well as how to approach choosing the rest of the scrap book.
You will need to keep in mind that the quality of the pictures plays a big role in how good the scrap book looks in the end. So make sure that you choose pictures that are clear with good lighting.
Choose your album size
The next thing that you will need to do is to choose the size of your scrap book or album. To do this you will need to have a rough idea how many pictures you want to put into your scrap book. The last thing that you would want to do is to have your scrap book looking congested and have the pictures placed in a less than orderly fashion.
Gather some basic supplies
You do not need expensive items or fancy stationary to make your scrap book look good. You will still be able to successfully put together a beautiful scrap book with basic items like markers of different colours, glitter pens and glue. It is not necessary to go overboard with the decoration. You can make the pages come alive with just a creative mind.
And finally it is not all about the glitz and the glam. Make sure that you write notes. Point out why the pictures are so special and just make sure that when you look at this scrap book someday, you will surely smile at all the memories you have so carefully put together.
