Scrapbooking 101 Scrapbooking 101 Some Tips from people like you Diana Kristen Allison Patty Amanda Always put the supplies back when you are done with them; it saves time later. Be Organized! Be Creative! Layering paper, using ribbon, eyelets, buttons and other decorations add spark and color to your page, without being too much! Fill It Up! Don't leave too many blank spots around your page; fill them up with stickers and tags. However, don't junk up your paper with so much stuff crowding the pictures. Leave some spaces so it's not too filled, but make sure it has enough decoration, too. Too crowded! Not enough! Have A Theme In Mind... Pick a theme ahead of time so that you're prepared. Then get ticket stubs, pamphlets, and photos to match the theme. Unique Do something new everytime. Don't always scrapbook just vacations, or trips to the beach, or baby photos. You want everything to be as creative as possible, and you want a wide variety of ideas! Nice and Neat! There pages might look good, but imagine a whole scrapbook filled with just one of these pages over and over and over... ...page after page after page... Be ! If you are scrapbooking with others, take the time to look at their pages, too. Maybe it will give you some ideas. However, don't copy someone else's great idea, because then you lose your uniqueness. Also, remember that your page doesn't have to be the best to be unique. Sometimes there isn't a fine line between too crowded and too spacious. What about the picture below? Is it too crowded? Does it not have enough? Once you decide, check your answer below. This photo is just fine! Most people think it is too crowded because of all the borders and quilled flowers, while others think it doesn't have enough because there's only two pictures and few techniques. In reality, it desn't matter how many pictures you have, and the borders are almost too much, barely within the "Just Right" range. Answer: Please remember not to go overboard with the decorations!! There are a lot to choose from, and you can't have everything in just one page. Be careful! Too crazy! The more prepared you are, the better off you will be: The neater things are, the faster you can get the job done. You don't want to throw all the stickers in the book section, because it will take someone an hour to find them. The same could happen to you; you could waste precious time just looking for one little thing. Don't waste your time trying to find the stripes stamp. Be Organized! Tools Paper Stamping
(No Stampin' Up) Matting Eyelets Brads Ribbon Quilling Tape Squares Punchers Scissors Pop-up dots Flowers Stenciling Letters Tags Buttons Stickers 3-D Stickers Homemade 3-D Stickers Quotes Books Color Wheel What you can use to scrapbook... ...and how to use it! Use sticker letters to spell out vacation places or other words. Use the scrapbooking library to discover new techniques, ideas, and page layouts. Make these out of regular stickers, paper, and pop-up dots. Stick the desired sticker onto the paper, cut carefully around it, and attach a pop-up dot to the back! Voila! Use these as picture corners, or just regular decorations! Use both wheels to match hues, and find the perfect combonation of either complementary or analogous colors. DO NOT GO OVERBOARD WITH THESE! Also, do not EVER cut your pictures with these. Reserve these for matting. Use these to attach your pictures to the page. Use these for your homemade 3-D stickers, or just to raise a piece of paper on your page. Pop-up dots help make certain things stand out. The most essential tool to scrapbooking, besides pictures, is paper! Use plain or decorated to backgrounds to make your pictures look even more amazing. Use these to write dates and/or places. Also, with special lined tags you can write about your pictures. Use flowers to accent your page. You can layer flowers on top of each other for a more striking effect. Lastly, you can hammer an eyelet through the center of the flowers to make a cool colored center Hammer these into the center of flowers, or just onto your page to add color. Also, you can add clear letter stickers to the tops of these to spell words. Matting is the simplest idea in scrapbooking. Matting simply means pasting a picture on a piece of paper, or layering it. It's as easy as that! The white background for each picture is the matting! Study these! * * * * * * * Brads have two sharp ends tha you poke into your paper, and then open to kepp it in place. Most of you have worked with brads before. Quotes, quotes, quotes! Use these to spice up your page and express the feel you want to portray. Check out the quote book for ideas! NEVER, EVER use plain stickers on your scrapbook pages, unless you really think it would look good. Even so, you should check with one of the staff members first. For more help, you can check out the last page in my scrapbook (the baby page). Use regular ribbon on the side of your page, and use ribbon with words (above) prefferably at the bottom of the page Welcome!! I'm sure all of you want to get right to work, so I'll try to make this as short as possible. This is a (hopefully) short tutorial on how to scrapbook. Of course, this Prezi won't tell you everything, so you will definitely need assistance from our staff. Staff: Amanda Gillette- Head Scrapbooker
