5 Scrapbooking Essentials

5 Scrapbook Essentials
I've been into scrapbooking for what feels like forever, but I confess I'm terrible at finishing projects.  Last year's Christmas mini album is still sitting disassembled in a box in my closet.  {Sad.}  But I'm working on improving - cause while it's fun to work on a scrapbook layout or album, it's most satisfying to actually finish one!  Never gotten into scrapbooking or a beginner?  Here's 5 essentials to get you started...  {You'll have to supply the chutzpah to see it through, as no anti-procrastinating drugs have been safely passed by the FDA.} =) 

1. ALBUM: Plain albums are typically cheaper & can be easily personalized & jazzed up.
2. PAGE PROTECTORS: Make sure they're the right size for your album/photos.
3. EMBELLISHMENTS: Let your creativity take over! Whether you're a minimalist or your motto is "the more, the better" – make your album your own!
4. JOURNALING CARDS: These are the perfect place for captions & jotting down memories.
5. PHOTOS: Whether it's special occasions, milestones, or everyday shots, photos make the scrapbook!

Scrapbooking Love,

P.S.: Do you scrapbook?  Are you a Project Life-er? =) Are you contemplating creating a December Daily?  Leave a comment with your memory keeping thoughts.

P.P.S.: Linking up with Kiki & the gang! =)
In Its Time


  1. Ooh, I've always thought about scrapbooking! I actually was thinking it might be a good goal for next year. :) So thank you for this list of essentials! If I do pursue scrapbooking, it will definitely come in handy.

    And thanks for linking up, too!

  2. I think it's great that you scrapbook! I journal and I love the idea of project life but I haven't gotten into any of it yet. One day!!!

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. I'm definitely a scrapbooker - but my biggest issue is committing to finishing a project.

    Working on Project Life in a 6x8 album this year without any strict rules - so far so good!
