Scrapbook Paper: Add Some Color

What’s the difference between a photo album and a scrapbook? You can find both at StorePhotos.com, so it is important to know the difference. A photo album is a place where you can neatly organize all of your photographs. The pages usually contain sleeves so all you need to do is slide them in. A scrapbook is where you take those same pictures and organize them in a way that almost tells a story. You can then use several scrapbooking supplies or embellishments to add some character to your scrapbook. Whatever you want to include is up to you. You are only limited by your imagination.

One of the more popular and versatile scrapbooking supplies is scrapbook paper. Scrapbook paper gives you a lot of options while you are designing your project. You can literally make anything you need out of scrapbook paper because they aren't pre-cut into any specific shape. You can again let your imagination take you anywhere.

Cut Out Shapes

It can sometimes be difficult or time consuming to find stickers appropriate to the page you are working on. Plus, do you really want to order a new set of stickers for each holiday or special occasion? Why not just scrapbook paper to cut out your own shapes? Working on a page about the Super Bowl party you just had? Cut out simple football and helmet shapes. Is it Christmas time? You can easily cut out Christmas tree and candy cane designs.

Back Your Pictures

Sometimes you can really make pictures stand out by giving them a scrapbook paper backing. Let's say you are working on a page that shows off your children's Halloween costumes. If color of the page itself is orange, then why not give each picture a black backing. Orange and black are the colors most associated with Halloween, and the black will make the pictures stand out from the orange. There are a several different colors in a pack of paper from StorePhotos.com, so that you can experiment with all different types of combinations.

So if you are looking for a way to add some color to your scrapbook project, consider using scrapbook paper from StorePhotos.com.
