Improving Your Scrapbook By Just Using A Kit Many people have pictures showing their lives from infancy to adult years. You can hold on tight to those special and priceless moments always and forever. Inserting them in a scrapbook is one way to really enhance all those pictures. In terms of a scrapbook, anything is possible where there can be captions and other mementos added in such as concert tickets, movie stubs for instance. Starting out is as simple as grabbing scrapbook kits and finding some time to yourself. Get Organized One of the first things you ought to do is to organize all of the items you would like to include in your book. The best way to do this is to choose a theme, say for example a vacation, special event or even a set time period. Those pictures can be added into the scrapbook with keepsakes, where you can also include funny little captions or comments. This is where scrapbook kits are useful. To improve the scrapbook, there are a variety of kits you can acquire to go along with the family vacation theme. Normally, these come with stick-ons, letters you can use to spell out keywords or other embellishments which you can use to frame your photographs or captions. Scrapbook kits are also offered that come with fun pages in different colors and designs such as solids, patterns and in many cases characters. Build a Page When you're trying to figure out the layout for each page, don't let that square pieces of paper be intimidating. There are several tips that can help you get going. Try starting off with one or two photographs to use as the focal point and design the pages around those. You can choose other pictures to be on the page too, especially if you can properly crop them to be smaller but still impactful. Pick a photograph or two to mat. You can use any one of the items in the scrapbook kit to help frame pictures and use contrasting patterns to embellish the page in an attractive manner. Make sure to add in some sort of journaling once you've arranged the page with the photos. This could mean handwritten captions, the date the pictures were taken or simple words including “family†or “beach." Finally, you can throw on several fun embellishments to occupy the rest of the page. Rules of Thumb To improve your overall scrapbooking experience, you should make sure to follow a handful of general guidelines. Until you've got everything arranged in order, never ever glue anything down or apply peel off stickers to the page. This will keep you from running out of space or making a mistake. In terms of cropping, do not cut Polaroid shots because the chemical substances can actually leak and ruin your page. With respect to cluttering a page up too much, try not to over do it when cutting various photos into shapes. For each page it would be nice to add in one or two shaped photographs but don't go overboard as it will not look good. You can create a lasting book of memories that looks terrific by simply following a few steps. To Swirlydoos, LLC
