– Organize your photos, sort by theme, date, year, age, whatever makes it easier for you when it comes time to pick a photo you would like to scrapbook.
– Always store your photos in a cool dry place away from excessive heat, humidity and sunlight.
– When scrapbooking older photos, ask your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles for information that can help you with journaling.
– Use acid free materials and pens.
– Remember, there is no wrong way to scrapbook, use your imagination and let your creativity shine!
A very good friend of mine introduced me to scrapbooking a few years ago. She showed me one of her albums that I just loved. Then, she gave me a few items to get started; needless to say I was instantly hooked. Now, I am the proud owner of a store and a collector of supplies. Scrapbooking is a great way to spend time with friends and family and it is also a great way to meet new people.
