Styles and Covers

There are a number of styles and sizes to choose from, you can visit a crafts store so you can figure out what you actually want. Normally 12"x12" and 9"x9" sizes are used. Or you can just customize the album to the size you would like.

Then comes the themes that you will need for your book it could be any such as birthdays, wedding themes or any other special occasion. You can even find themed albums ready made from the book shops. You will find thousands of albums in different colors. You can go for ring-binded albums if you prefer them. After that, you need to look for a good cover page for your album, you could choose from linen covers, or leather, or vinyl. And you can even ask your local shop owner to customize the album cover for you, e.g. embossing the title.

Basic Materials

Now you can go for the page protectors, they are very easy to find. You can go to any local bookshop for page protectors. You would also need adhesives, background papers, and cardstocks if you can afford them. Black and white pens can be very useful; they both look great on the opposite-colored backgrounds.

Next, you will need scissors for cutting and cropping. You can even find scrapbook kits online or on a local store. They can be very helpful.

Since, scrapbook means you have to use scrap, the best thing to do would be to go through your scrap and find useful things that fit your ideas.
