An Introduction to Album Scrapbooking

So you’re interested in starting album scrapbooking? Great! For those of you who aren’t sure what this is, here’s a fast rundown. A scrapbook isn’t a photo album. A photo album has a collection of arranged photos presented in a plain and structured layout for ease and speed of viewing a large number of photographs.

A Scrapbooking album has no set number of photos on each page. There can be simply one image or a complete collage of pictures. The idea behind scrapbooking is to make a theme and fit the pictures into it. This is done {through} complicated decoration of the pages round the photographs to enhance and convey the theme.

Before beginning, you will have to have a collection of photographs around a certain theme. This can be an event, a celebration or simply a collection of memories of a specific part of yours or somebody else’s life.

With celebration themes, these might be for things like graduations, sporting victories, weddings and milestone birthdays such at 18th’s 21st’s 50th’s and etc. You’ll often have a collection of photographs in a short time span for these sort of events.

For the collection sorts of albums, you’ll find that your photos tend to have been taken over months or years. Things that fall into these albums could be stuff like, early memories, college years or somebody’s time in the army. There truly is no wrong and right when it comes to these kind of albums, they’re for any kind of memories.

Once you have your album planned out, you then set about decorating and organizing the photos as you think fit. Actually the limit here is your imagination. You will need to look up a more detailed guide on decorating a scrapbook for specific examples.
