All things considered, the process is an art, and every good artist has a quantity of tools to help them perform the job. When you are ready to preserve those important memories, the following are some scrapbooking supplies you'll need on hand. Paper Without having paper, there is no scrapbook. But what sort of paper do you need? It is a good plan to have extra sheets of both solid colored and plain white paper on hand to serve as pages, matting and then for decoration purposes. However, an expert scrapbooker constantly has a few extras up her sleeve, with patterns, stylish designs and themed looks. There are page templates that can be used if you would really like to go above and beyond the norm. There are lots of places online where you can find templates or ideas for ways to organize a page or even simply frame a photo or quote. So that you have a reference to go to, you might also want to print off important pages when you are in need of some inspiration. Stamps A scrapbook's best companion can be stickers plus decals. Embellishments from scrapbook kits are excellent, and stamps add another element and texture to the page. You can use regular kits and ink, or you can decide to get a bit more elaborate with wax stamps or embossing that add some depth. Font stamps are great when you would like to incorporate keywords or captions without having to hand write them in. Flowers Flowers are the definition of natural splendor, and they are a simple way to add color to your page. You can purchase paper or fabric flowers that work effortlessly into your page. Excellent for adding variety, these can be found in numerous colors and sizes. Writing Tools It can be very easy to forget the basics like pens, pencils and markers. In a world of stick-on letters and stamped fonts, it is very important remember that it's possible to write out a caption or a date yourself. This adds a really personal touch to your book. Trim In scrapbooking, trim could mean any number of things: ribbon, lace and even simply thin strips of patterned paper. A wonderful way to have something handy when you need to add special touches on a page is to have some ribbon in different sizes readily available. Lace adds elegance to wedding or newborn books, and paper trim can be used just about anywhere.
