Want to start scrapbooking but couldn’t figure out how? Don’t worry – we got you covered!

Let’s start by creating your first scrapbook page first. The following supply list will not serve as a standard for scrapbooking, but they will be your helpful guidelines based on the experiences of expert makers.


Here are the things you need to prepare first:

  • Paper cutter or trimmer
  • Scissors (for general cutting)
  • Journaling pen
  • Adhesives
  • 12 in * 12 in scrapbook album
  • 12 in * 12 in scrapbook page
  • 12 in * 12 in scrapbook paper
  • Card stock
  • Photos (at least 4)
  • Stickers and embellishments (optional)


  1. Sort photos. Four 4 photos must have a common theme.
  2. Choose one photo as the focal point. Simply select the main photo and the rest will be for the sides.
  3. Choose embellishments and paper. Go for colors that highlight the photos.
  4. Make use of coordinating paper & stickers. ‘Coordinating’ means matching the paper style.
  5. Create a background which can be a scrapbook paper or patterned paper with card stock.
  6. Double-mat the main photo which means to add another piece of paper underneath.
  7. Group-mat the remaining photos then add them.
  8. Add journaling, either handwritten or pre-printed.
