Which you’ll end up using every time that you create a new scrapbook. In order to create text which pops off each page of your scrapbook, you also can’t go wrong purchasing vinyl lettering.
Choose a theme before you start work on a new scrapbooking:

The key is to choose a theme which excites you.
Choose your favorite photos before you start scrapbooking:
It’s well worth choosing which photos you’d like to highlight before you start scrapbooking.

Use handy adhesive dots to place decorative items that you’re not committed to using:
One way to play around with the look of each scrapbook page is to use handy adhesive dots in order to tentatively place decorative items such as ribbons, borders and 3D embellishments onto your page. Which you can continue to move and adjust until you decide that you’re happy with the overall look of your page. Which is when you can pull out your hot glue gun or super glue.
Experiment with using a ribbon border to draw attention to your favorite photos:
If you have photos which you’d like to be focal photos, simply measure and cut enough ribbon to create borders for your favorite photos. Which will ensure that anyone who views your scrapbook will pay particular attention to the photos which you’ve chosen to frame.
Try using a pre-made envelopes to hold cute letters:
As there are often special stories behind special memories and photos you may want to get into the habit of pasting pre-made envelopes onto your scrapbook pages. Which you’ll be able to use to store handwritten letters and stories about the events which you’ve chosen to include in your scrapbook.
