Scrapbooking is a very expensive hobby. Traditional or Digital/Hybrid. So scrapping on a budget is a very tricky thing. Materials are hard to find locally but thanks to Internet, we can now order materials online and ship to our home.
Some of my favorite online stores:http://www.bookoto.com/index.php?cPath=115http://www.rekindledmoments.blogspot.com/http://www.visualcreationsonline.net/http://www.memorylanestore.net/
I know materials are very expensive in this stores compare to national bookstore but I think you're photos and memories deserves the best.
When buying materials please look for this following labels:
}archival quality -It will prevent photo deterioration. Albums
- Choose sturdy, archival-quality album over magnetic albums (The materials used in magnetic albums can, over time, harm your photos.)Page Protectors
}Page protectors will help prevent photos from becoming soiled and will guard against fingerprint smudges.Cardstock Papers
-Mount your photos onto acid-free and lignin-free cardstock paper.Tapes and Ashesives
-Use acid-free and photo-safe tapes and adhesives to mount your photos and other embellishments.Writing Materials
}Acid-free and Photo-SafeCutting Materials
- I suggest paper cutters/Paper Trimmers. I'm very bad with scissors. So I use paper trimmers.
