When you want to invest your time and attention in scrapbooking, you don’t just go on buying materials to be used for a single project one at a time. You may never know what creative idea can hit you, and it will be a waste if you can’t follow through.

In this case, buying a bit more of the supplies can be beneficial for your subsequent projects.

There are materials that you usually tend to use more and are definitely more essential than others. These must-have supplies have to be available and abundant when needed.

If you have gone deeper into the hobby, then we highly recommend investing in materials that will allow you to execute higher art skills and techniques. These are as follows:

  • Scrapbook album
  • Refill pages for your album
  • A pair of scissors
  • Acid-free adhesive
  • Patterned papers and cardstock
  • Journal pens
  • 12-inch paper trimmer
  • Embellishments like stickers, buttons, ribbons, and more
  • References for ideas
  • A die-cut machine which includes a die alphabet set
  • A large set of journaling pens
  • Circle or oval cutter

The more your creativity grows, the more you will be needing supplies. Do not be afraid to experiment as long as it won’t compromise your photos or any pieces of memorabilia.
