To get started, you have to think of the theme of your scrapbook. It could be special occasions or events like travel, concerts, holidays or dates. It could be a collection of the highlights of your calendar or school year, or even an extensive 365-page album for each day of the year. You could focus on your personal experiences, a special person like your partner or a certain set of people like your family and friends.
Next, you have to plan the timeline of your scrapbook. You can plan a chronological scrapbook and start from the earliest event going to the most recent. This allows you to add pages as you go along. You can also create one with past memories, where the finished product can be given as a gift or be viewed like an album.
Lastly, assemble your materials. Organize your photos and mementos according to your theme and timeline. Visiting online scrapbooking stores like AllScrapbookSteals.com allows you to get all the essential or basic materials like the glues, papers, albums and embellishments. Look back on the colorful moments of your life and you'll surely “put yourself back in a good state of mind.”
