It seemed very intimidating at first, but there's really not much to it. Most folks already have photos, and after that there are only a few basic supplies:
- Paper trimmer
- Cutting mat
- Album (not shown)
All of this should come in around $50. Other items that come in handy include:
- Ink & Paint
- Eyelets and Brads
- Water colors
Before you get started, I'd recommend looking at what other scrapbookers are doing. It might seem a bit intimidating if you've never considered yourself artistic, but everyone is new to this at some point. I recommend the community at Scrapbook.com and magazines such as Simple Scrapbooks. Resources such as these will help give you an idea as to what's possible.
Also, to protect your photos and ensure a long lasting scrapbook, look for products that are "archival safe" or "acid free."
