It is my belief that in this digital age, people do not look through photo albums as often as they should with Facebook right at their fingertips. Because I have a 1 month break from NYU, I decided to scrapbook my entire life (skipping middle school, obviously). I’ve decided to share the best scrapbooking tips I have!
Firstly, the key to a great composition is layering to the point of simulated 3-Dimension. By cutting out people, cakes, and other cute images and putting them on top of each other, a beautiful display is created.
Secondly, I was at first daunted by the price of scrapbooking paper and stickers. Michael’s always has 40% off coupons, however, for Jollee’s 3D stickers. I also recommend buying a complete scrapbook with paper, which can be found at Outlet stores. I found mine at Marshall’s for $10 each. I made 3 scrapbooks (high school, freshman year, and sophomore year) for $45, so roughly $15 each including stickers.
For photo prints, I recommend just going on Snapfish.com and connecting to Facebook. You can order prints for 15 cents each just from your Facebook photo albums! You also get 50% off your first purchase!
Lastly, I think it is a charming idea to add favorite songs, albums, and movies of the time for your favorite scrapbooks. I have playlists for every month since January 2011, which allows for amazing nostalgia-indulgence. Also, add ticket stubs/receipts for other sweet memory trips.
