I’ve been wanting to start a scrapbook for some time (a diary of sorts), but the kits and materials are overwhelming, so where do I start? One thing for sure, inspiration is everywhere.

  1. Hello!
    I can really help you! Do you already have the photos printed? That would be the first step. Print and then add to the photos you already have and I like to put them in chronological order. I use a Creative Memories Power Sort Box to organize my photos. It is so great. I have 3. It organized up to 2400 photos with room on the lid for the large photos.
    Here is what you need: a full paper kit where everything is beautiful and matches. That way, you have no “decision making” because all you have to do is add your photos and do your journalling on the journal boxes that are provided in the kit. This is the only way to go for a first project! It will be stunningly beautiful and everything will match!
    The kit is called a “Power Pallete” – and I recommend the “Delight” and they also have a new one which is “black and white” that is truly beautiful. All of them are. Go to: and then “shop products” then “traditional scrapbooking” and then “paper” then “Power Pallettes.” They are truly georgeous. YOu will have EVERYTHING you need to begin and FINISH a beautiful album. Your adhesive is the tape runner…..there are other cutting tools which are extremely helpful, too….the personal trimmer and corner rounder, and cutting system is so great….it cuts a perfect circle every time.
    If I can help you in any way, do contact me. This is what I do…help people begin recording their lives in albums. Very sincerely, Mary Cluley
