Scrapbooking is part craft project and part memory preservation, sprinkled with tons of fun and creativity.
The sky is the limit when it comes to scrapbooks. In any craft store you’ll find aisles of crafting scissors, books, stickers, and paper products that will help you create a one-of-a-kind album for your photos.
There are also a ton of scrapbooking blogs out there, too. These blogs are written by individuals or companies who seek to inspire, teach, and share scrapbooking ideas and techniques.
If you’re ready to dive a little deeper into the scrapbooking world, we recommend starting with these eight blogs.
