Scrapbooking used to be a big part of my life. I had all kids of types of paper and stickers and die-cuts. Once I had kids I thought, "I am going to scrapbook all about everything they do." Haha not even close. All of my supplies have been put up for years now and I haven't scrapbooked in probably 7 years now.

There are so many things to think about when scrapbooking. Besides choosing the pictures and items you will put into it, you need to decide what adhesives you will use to attach the items. There is glue dots, liquid glue, glue sticks, tape.

You also need to decide what type of album you will be using. Will you be doing a general scrapbook and maybe want a plain album? Are you scrapbooking for a theme like a birthday or vacation? Try to find an album that matches your theme.
