But how do you make a scrapbook? Where to start from? Don’t fret! In today’s blog post, I’m going to give you a few tips that will help you. (A/N: I am by no means an expert of making a scrapbook.)

Research for inspiration

Thanks to social media apps like Tumblr, Pinterest, etc. there are many great scrapbook designs out there that can give you a rough idea on how you want your scrapbook to look like. Of course, this does not mean you are to copy from a person’s work. Be inspired and create your own style. You may just end up surprising yourself!

Be Creative

Your ideas are limitless and you can do anything that you want. You can try different ways to display your pictures.  You could even place your photos in accordion card inside the scrapbook. We previously did a DIY on it. You can check it out here for the tutorial.

Don’t be afraid of making mistakes

It’s okay if you make a mistakes or two while making it. You can always cover it up or make the mistake as part of the design of the scrapbook! As they always say ‘Mistakes are just a part of learning’.
