How To Find and Buy Quality Scrapbooking Products

Scrapbooking is a fun way to save memories. The best thing is that there's an endless list of scrapbooking materials, so you'll never run out of ideas. Below are some examples:

  • Adhesives

  • Albums

  • Colored staples

  • Die cuts

  • Embellishments

  • Expressions

  • Eyelets

  • Fabric

  • Glitter

  • Markers

  • Paper punchers

  • Patterned paper

  • Photo

  • Photo corners

  • Picture pebbles

  • Printed paper

  • Ribbons

  • Rubber stamps

  • Stencils

  • Stickers

  • Textured cardstock

Essential tools you will need are: glue, scissors, and tape. Optional tools you may want to have include: eyelet settler, hole punch, needle nose pliers, paper piercer and decorative scissors. Once you've made a list of things you need, you can start searching for them at the following places:

  1. Craft stores:

    • Most craft or art stores have sections dedicated to scrapbooking alone. For good quality high-end materials that cost a little bit more, try Paper Source or Papyrus.

    • If you're looking for a bargain, go to the craft store at a Wal-Mart or Target.  Despite the different layouts, you may find that all stores carry pretty much the same basic of materials. The Blick art store sells good quality albums for scrapbooking. Although they're somewhat limited when it comes to decorative materials, the albums are worth checking out.
  2. Online:

    • Some scrapbooking-related websites offer not only tips on scrapbooking but store listings as well. Keep an eye out for those.

    • If you're lost, just type in "scrapbooking materials" on your search bar, and your search engine should provide you with some well-related sites on the topic.

  3. Infomercials:

    • This sounds like a difficult source, as one would think that you have to sit in front of the TV until a related infomercial comes on. With technology however, you will now be able to buy it online anyways. Either way, it's a good place to get whole scrapbooking kits, all at once for a low price.
