Scrapbooking Supplies: Spice Up Your Project

Scrapbooking can make for a very enjoyable experience. Not only can working on a scrapbook be a continual project for you to work on, but it can also help you get your photos organized, look at pictures you haven't seen for quite some time, and reminisce about people, places, and experiences that you've had over the course of your life. Scrapbooking also gives you the opportunity to create a gift for someone who is important to you. We all need something to keep us busy, and working on a scrapbook will certainly help you achieve that goal.

There are two components to a scrapbook: The actual pictures and the embellishments. The pictures are the driving force behind the scrapbook. They are what help tell the story you are trying to create. Scrapbooks after all do offer some sort of narrative. The other core element is the embellishments. Embellishments are the decorations, designs, stickers, and other little intricacies that really help to spice your scrapbook up. Embellishments can be made through the use of scrapbooking supplies.

What type of scrapbooking supplies are there?

There are three main types of scrapbooking supplies available at StorePhotos.com: Basic, decorative, and organizational.

Basic Scrapbooking Supplies

These types of scrapbooking supplies are literally the basics. These are the kinds of things you need to make simple things like boarders, glue pictures to the page, cut out backgrounds, and so forth. Specific examples of these types of supplies include a scrapbook glue runner, which lays down a strip of adhesive that isn't runny like normal glue. Just affix the picture to the page with this strip of adhesive and you are good to go.

Decorative Scrapbooking Supplies

These are the type of supplies that you use to actually spice up your project. You could use metallic gel ink pens to write passages or headings, caption stickers to add humorous comments, or scrapbooking paper to cut out your own designs. How you decorate your project is up to you.

Organizational Scrapbooking Supplies

This last group of supplies consists of simple items that can help you stay organized while working on a scrapbook. The one that stands out by far is our scrapbooking storage box, which you could use to either organize your work supplies or the photos you intend upon using for this particular scrapbook. Being organized is the most important step to working efficiently.

So make sure to check out all of the fascinating scrapbooking embellishments that we have to offer at StorePhotos.com.
