Are You Considering Using Scrapbooking Embellishments For Your Scrapbook?

Aug 1, 2008
If you are new to the scrapbooking world, then there are a lot of terms that you need to become familiar with before you jump into this exciting hobby with both feet. Learning the terms and what they mean is essential to any serious scrapbooker.

You will hear terms such as rubber stamping or scrapbooking embellishments, yet without knowing what they actually are you may miss out on creating the perfect scrapbook to contain your favorite memories and pictures. There is more to this hobby than just the scrapbooking paper.

Scrapbooking embellishments are an excellent place to begin because you see many of these in different retail stores. These are either two dimensional or three dimensional stickers that will go on your scrapbook pages.

You should try to stick to the same theme as your scrapbook layouts so that it will coordinate nicely with your pictures. As an example, let's use the Fourth of July. Use embellishments and scrapbook layouts that go along with the Fourth of July theme, such as fireworks or the flag.

If you elect not to use embellishments as a way to adorn your pages, then you can always use rubber stamping. You take a rubber stamp that is of some design and gently press it down onto an ink pad.

The rubber stamp is then applied to different areas of the page where you would like to see some additional design. Using a rubber stamp is a great way to get kids involved too. They will love the idea of being able to stamp their own pages in your scrapbook.

An additional way to add a touch of whimsy to your scrapbook is to use specialized scissors that have different die cuts. You can trim your pictures and add fluted edges or a crinkle cut design that will make the picture stand out. The kids will also have fun with these scissors and you can use the scissors on a variety of papers to create designs that are unique to your scrapbook.

The scrapbooking embellishments are just the ticket if you want your pages to have some dimension and flair. They are incredibly fun to work with and you can find them in a variety of retail shops, on websites and even some dollar discount stores.

The kids will love putting the stickers and embellishments on the pages and you will love the look that they add to your scrapbook pages. You can find anything to suit your taste and budget, so have fun with them but just remember not to overdo it.
