Cardstock Scrapbooking Supplies & Tips

Choosing the right Scrapbooking cardstock is the key to making your scrapbook layouts either exciting or just ho hum.Are you putting together a scrapbook album, or making memories to last a Life Time.   Here are some tips for stretching your scrapbook dollars…

Start by selecting 12 x 12 scrapbooking paper such as bazzill or general cardstock that is inexpensive and acid free.  The acid free paper will prevent your scrapbook page from yellowing over time.  Go to scrapbook online stores to buy the most cheap scrapbooking supplies you can find.  They will carry the same items that are in most retail or chain stores at a fraction of the price.And best of all, you do the shopping without having to leave the convenience of your home.24 hrs/ 7 days a week I enjoy selling and working on scrappbooking.  The scrapbooking embellishments, scrapbook stickers, and scrapbook supplies are all delivered within a timely manner.Nearly all will have a pop up window indicating free shipping if you spend minimum amount with them online scrapbook supplies.    When you buy scrapbook online, make sure to buy several items at once, so you can either obtain free shipping or the lowest shipping price possible.

 

Next, think of what how you would like to work in your scrapbooking stickers, and scrapbooking embellishments on your cardstock.  You might be working on a wedding scrapbook, a baby scrapbook, or just a creative scrapbook.  Always keep in mind that if you use 12 x 12 scrapbooking materials or papers, you know that there is always a little quarter inch you have to cut off each background cardstock.  Save those scrapbook paper scraps.  Create a file of paper scrapbook scraps that can be used in other scrapbook layout ideas.  Those long strips are great as embellishments on future pages.  You can use them in your design on a digital scrapbooking page, even after it has been printed to add some depth.

 

Lastly, buy wisely!  How many times have you ever really used that hot pink pen?  Could the same effect have been achieved by using some of those cardstock scrapbooking paper?  Many of us have a rainbow of colors in our scrapbooking supplies that range from pens, eyelets, brads, stamping, and other specialty embellishments.  Stick to neutral colors at first.Just keep the basic color cardstock in your scrapbook storage.
