Four Tips to Get Started Scrapbooking
There’s no reason to be overwhelmed or intimidated when you start scrapbooking. Just keep these simple tips in mind, and you’ll be happily on your way to preserving priceless memories.
- Make up your own definition of a “scrapbook.”
A scrapbook doesn’t have to be ‘a work of art’ or take a lot of time to create to become something special for yourself or someone you love. Any time you pair a photo you love with words that bring that moment to life, you are scrapbooking.
- Forget the idea that you are going to do something with ALL the photos you take.
This is not a healthy or realistic expectation and no one expects this from you. The easiest and most authentic approach to scrapbooking begins with a memory. Once you have a memory in mind, you can either take or find a photo that illustrates the memory.
- Start small.
Bigger is not always better. Pick up a great “little” photo album or scrapbook that won’t require hours of creativity or a degree in design and use paper and paste to bring color and perspective to a fun birthday party or vacation.

The people we love are what matter most. Remember to take and print everyday pictures of people you love laughing, working, playing and interacting with others. These are the images you’ll treasure.
