Improving Your Scrapbook By Simply Using A Kit The pictures you have of your relatives and friends are treasured items. You can hold on tight to those special and precious moments forever. A great way to really enhance your photos is to organize them in a scrapbook. When it comes to a scrapbook, anything is possible where there can be captions along with other mementos added in such as concert tickets, movie stubs as an example. All you need is some time and a scrapbook kit where you are well on your way to creating an exceptional visual to enjoy for years. Get Organized One of the first things you need to do is to organize all of the items you wish to include in your book. Take as an example you had a fantastic family vacation where the photographs show sun, sand and a bunch of smiling faces. Those pictures can be added into the scrapbook with mementos, where you can include funny little captions or comments. A scrapbook kit can really be handy at this stage where they are available in different themes. There are a multitude of kits you can choose from that will match your theme and enhance your book. Kits will generally include a multitude of items like photo frames, lettering, fun stickers, captions as well as other embellishments to enhance the pages. Scrapbook kits are also available that come with fun pages in various colors and designs such as solids, patterns and in some cases characters. Build a Page While you are trying to figure out the layout for each page, don't let that square pieces of paper be frightening. There are several tips that can help you get going. For example, you generally want to have one picture as your focal point. You can choose other photos to be on the page too, especially if you can properly crop them to be more compact but still impactful. Mat several pictures and place them on the page but do not adhere them yet. You can use any of the items in the scrapbook kit to help frame photographs and use contrasting patterns to embellish the page in an attractive manner. Once you have arranged your pictures, be sure to add some sort of journaling. You can hand write captions, comments, the date plus where you vacationed or perhaps you may opt to use the alphabetical letters. To fill the rest of the page, feel free to add as many embellishments as you would like. Rules of Thumb To improve your overall scrapbooking experience, you should take care to follow a handful of general guidelines. Until you have got everything arranged in order, never ever glue anything down or apply decals to the page. Slip ups can be avoided this way, where you are not running out of room or making it look too cluttered. Be careful and remember to never cut Polaroid pictures when cropping just because the chemicals can and will destroy the page. You might be tempted to cut your pictures into a lot of shapes, but do not overdo it or else it will make your design too overwhelming. Instead, choose one or two shapes for each page and leave it at that.
