Tips To Budget Your Scrapbooking At A Minimum

Jul 22, 2008
You do not have to spend a lot of money on scrapbooking supplies for it to be an interesting and fulfilling hobby. It can be as cheap as you want it to be, within reason, or as expensive. For scrapbooking enthusiasts the joy comes from the finished product.

If you are new to scrapbooking, then it does not require a lot of start-up money. There will be some necessary scrapbooking tools and pages that you will need to purchase but they will not break the bank. Once you have the basics you can begin assembling your scrapbook.

The most important piece for scrapbooking is the actual scrapbook album. It is what binds all of your scrapbook layouts and scrapbooking pages together. The right album will have a thick cover and will be easy to open.

You will want to find a decent sized album to hold all of your finished pages so keep this in mind when buying one. After you have acquired the scrapbook journal or album, it is time to move on to the rest of the project.

When buying scrapbook pages, it is important to make sure they are acid-free. As well, the ink you use has to be suitable for writing in your scrapbook. You do not want the ink bleeding through to the next page and possibly ruining a picture.

So be aware of the type of scrapbook paper that you buy. You may not want to invest in the best quality but you most certainly do not want to use just any old type of paper.

Another huge expense in the scrapbooking world is the sticker machine. This is a machine that turns pictures into stickers. It takes the place of die cuts. You can buy special paper that has the sticker material on the back and it will use the paper until it is completely gone. There are also three dimensional stickers that can go on the scrapbook pages.

If you are looking for scrapbooking suppliers, then you need to check out Anna Griffin and Martha Stewart's line of their supplies and kits. The supplies can be found at craft stores, such as Hobby Lobby and Michael's Crafts Supplies.

Just bear in mind that the more individualized and decorated scrapbook albums will be more expensive. It is best to start off slowly and gradually get into the swing of scrapbooking before you start to make a lot of purchases.
