Scrapbooking tips

You are now ready to start your first project, but remember these top tips:

  • Keep things simple and don’t over complicate pages with lots of embellishments.
  • Decide on a layout before you start sticking, including what papers, photos and extras you’ll use.
  • Minimise contact with photos and don’t over handle them and try to use Matte rather than Glossy photos to minimise fingerprints.
  • Alternatively, scan and print your photos, so you have multiple copies.
