Steps for Scrapbooking:

2. Select and Print Photos: Choose the photos you want to include in your scrapbook. Print them in the desired size and crop them if necessary.

3. Plan Your Layout: Before making any permanent commitments, Plan out your page in advance. Layout all your ideas on the scrapbook and figure out what goes and does go along.

4. Create Backgrounds: Use decorative papers to create interesting backgrounds for your pages. You can layer different papers, use borders, or create patterns.

5. Add Photos and Memorabilia: Arrange your photos and any memorabilia on the pages. Play around with different placements until you find a layout that you like.

6. Journaling: Write down your thoughts, memories, and reflections. Include dates, names, and any details you want to remember. You can handwrite or type your journal.

7. Embellish Your Pages: Add stickers, embellishments, and other decorative elements to enhance your pages. This could include washi tape, ribbon, or any other items that fit your theme.

8. Finally, Protect Your Pages: if you’re using original photos or other items, consider using protective sleeves or adhesive page protectors to preserve your work.
