There’s no reason to be overwhelmed or intimidated when you start scrapbooking. Just keep these simple tips in mind, and you’ll be happily on your way to preserving priceless memories.
- Forget the idea that you are going to do something with ALL the photos you take.
This is not a healthy or realistic expectation and no one expects this from you. The easiest and most authentic approach to scrapbooking begins with a memory. Once you have a memory in mind, you can either take or find a photo that illustrates the memory.
- Start small.
Bigger is not always better. Pick up a great “little” photo album or scrapbook that won’t require hours of creativity or a degree in design and use paper and paste to bring color and perspective to a fun birthday party or vacation.
- Focus on personality and relationships.
The people we love are what matter most. Remember to take and print everyday pictures of people you love laughing, working, playing and interacting with others. These are the images you’ll treasure.
- Join the community of scrapbookers for support and inspiration.
Go into any scrapbook store and you’ll find friends and neighbors in workshops, searching aisles of papers and cardstock, and examining new pens, stickers and scissors. Scrapbooking is a very social thing, and even if you prefer to scrapbook alone, collaboration is essential to creativity (and fun!).

Makanya saya langsung pengen bikin scrapbooknya.. ^__^
Dan inilah “karya” pertama saya:
Bagaimana hasilnya? lumayan kan untuk newbie seperti saya? huehehehehe PEDE.. 😀
