In the phone calls I have been making with my potential customers, many have talked about just starting to scrapbook or wanting to learn. As a direct result, I am devoting Saturdays to Scrapbooking 101. We will start with the basics to introduce you to scrapbooking without overwhelming you.
Just what is scrapbooking? Simply put, scrapbooking is the combination of pictures, memorabilia and memories all put together.
Scrapbooking has been around since Victorian times. the first one about 1200 a.d. Over the centuries it has evolved into many different forms. Different companies have come up with different sized albums so you were tied to their product line but the industry standard today is a 12″ x 12″ album. There are still lots of different types of albums from post bound to banded albums. For my regular family scrapbooks my finished products go in Close to my Heart’s Post Bound Albums. But when getting started, my pages are kept in a 3 ring Work in Progress Album. This makes it easy to get to the pages I am currently working on, and a place to store pages that are just now quite ready yet. I have been the 3 ring binder variety since I started scrapbooking. I don’t find the pictures or scrap the pictures in order they will go in the book, and this makes it easy to put them in the correct order before transferring them to their permanent home.
In the upcoming Saturdays, we will discuss different aspects of scrapbooking, some basic video will help you get started. Next week we will talk about the different types of paper you should and shouldn’t use in your scrapbooking and the supplies you will want to get started.
