Your Concise Guide to Scrapbooking

Probably, you have heard about scrapbooking, but – just like many other people – don’t really understand what it is and how it works. If you agree with this, then this blog post is for you!

What is scrapbooking?

Scrapbooking is a hobby of many creative people, which represents a combined documenting and crafting activity. What you need for scrapbooking is a book with blank pages – sometimes colored, but white are also used – where you can put different photos and pictures, journaling, stickers, sequins, and many other decorative elements.

Why is it so popular?

Scrapbooking is an easy and fun activity, but it’s also very creative. It allows you to store your memories in a physical form (unlike the Stories on Instagram), as well as to develop your artistic skills. Moreover, it can serve not only as a gift to self, but also as a great present for your family and friends.

What do you need to start?

As we mentioned, first things first, you need a book with blank pages – a scrapbook. They come in different sizes, but we recommend using the square ones; they’re easier to divide the space on for your writings and decorations. Also, make sure that the size is enough for everything you want to include. For example, if you’re using 5×15 sized photos, you need to make sure the pages are more than 15 cm in measurements.

Then, of course, get scissors, glue, special pens and markers, some decorative papers, stickers, and other embellishments. Here you can find a variety of unique scrapbooking tools and decorative elements.

As the result, you will have an interesting hobby that boosts your creativity and motor skills, as well as leaves you (or your loved ones) beautifully ornamented memories and creative ideas in your one-of-a-kind scrapbook.
