The first rule of scrapbooking is that you do not want to spend a lot of money when you are first getting started. You may find yourself wandering through the crafts section of your local Hobby Lobby and wondering just what you should purchase.
The best and easiest way to get started is by buying scrapbooking kits that come pre-assembled and ready for you to begin your journey to becoming a scrapbooker. You will not spend a bunch of money only to find out later that you don't have everything you need. A kit will give you time to ease into the hobby.
There are some pros and cons when it comes to scrapbooking kits. The pros are that your scrapbooking paper and scrapbook layouts are included in the kit. You can find everything from stickers to funny captions that can be added to your pictures to create an exciting memory of a special event or place.
You do not have to worry about finding different scrapbooking paper because there will be theme related paper all in one kit. Take for example summer outings: there are a variety of kits that come with different sports related themes, outdoors themes and even Fourth of July paper.
The con's of using a scrapbook kit are that you will still need to buy other accessories, such as a wheel cutter for cutting certain shapes out on the picture. It may also not contain enough scrapbooking paper and scrapbook layouts to fill a large scrapbook. That means you will have to buy additional kits to fill the pages or you will have to buy the pages one at a time.
It may also not have the exact sheets that you are looking for so you will have to buy additional scrapbook pages to satisfy your creative urge. You will have to examine several kits to determine which one will work for you and your project. A kit may not have that personalized feel that you would prefer.
The best idea is to start small when it comes to scrapbooking kits. Find yourself a small album and start off slowly, gradually acquiring all the tools you need in order to create a one of a kind project, perhaps a family scrapbook.
The most important part is to have fun with it and enjoy what you are doing. This should be a labor of love and not just a labor that has you pulling your hair out. Scrapbooking is an enjoyable hobby that can showcase a lifetime of memories.
