We will walk you through the process, step-by-step

Step #10 - Load Your Scrapbook Album

Scrapbooking Basics

You have followed the Scrapbooking for Beginners Quick Start Guide and you are really At The Finish Line.

1. Gather Related Photos.
2. Determine the Predominate Color.
3. Determine Theme or Context.
4. Pick papers - Based on your colors, theme or content.
5. Collect your Tools.
6. Matte the Photos -- if you want to.
7. Test Fit the Photos to the page size and adhere to the layouts.
8. Add Embellishments or other goodies -- if you have them or want them.
9. Add the Journaling or save it for later.

10. Get your scrapbooking photo album and load the pages in your album and show off...

At this point you have really done the hard part. Don't wait too long to get your layouts into some sheet protectors to keep them from sticky fingers and dust and to keep all the items firmly attached.

If you don't already have an scrapbooking photo album, Kolo makes some great products that are all archival safe. Just click on the blue album and you can go directly to their website.

Scrapbooking for Beginners Tip: If you don't already have your album or are in doubt about what type to purchase check out our page related to the Scrapbook Photo Albums for various Scrapbook Album Sizes, styles and binding types. We have an Album Store there with a wide assortment of Albums for you to choose from.

Now is the time to put the Scrapbook Album on the coffee table and start showing it off to your family and friends. Or, just look at it yourself, to see what you have done and to help remember all the wonderful things you have done and seen, what you have accomplished, who you were along the way, and plan some more layouts.

Now that you have tried this, it will be easier and easier. You may even find yourself planning your layouts before you even go to an event. You will look for photos ops and you may become one of those who always has the camera at hand.

Good Luck and Thanks for checking us out!
