Scrapbooking: A How To Guide

If you're looking to showcase all your favourite and fondest memories in style, then scrapbooking is for you! The art of filling an album with snippets and mementos that are personal to your life journey, scrapbooking is something that everyone can enjoy - no matter whether big or small, young or old. Detailing everything you need to know to help you kick-start your next craft project, we've created a handy guide that is sure to inspire creativity.

What Is Scrapbooking?

A manner of both preserving and presenting (as well as cutting and sticking), scrapbooking is a process that is entirely limitless. From creating life books to personalised albums, goal books to celebratory memoirs, there really is no set direction you have to follow! With many ready-to-fill scrapbooks to choose from, here at The Range we've got everything you need to help your next DIY craft project flourish! If you've got a youngster that's interested in scrapbooking, there's a variety of kits available to them that come with fun stickers, tapes and more to get them inspired.

What Can I Include?

The answer is simple - whatever you want! If you've got a theme in mind, then why not carry that out throughout? Here are a few fun and exciting ideas to get you started:

  • Embellishments - Dainty items such as stickers, glitter, gemstones, and even sequins are perfect for scattering throughout your pages. Although there are many self-adhesive options available, it's important to secure your embellishments with the right glue. Glue guns provide you with a strong grip, making them perfect for glueing down larger objects, whereas PVA glues make sticking down smaller items quick and easy.

  • Letters and Numbers - Crafting letters and numbers are sure to help bring your project to life. Numbers are perfect for ensuring you never forget a scrapbook-worthy date again, and letters are great for spelling out heartfelt messages and well-wishes.

  • Paper Packs - Vibrant and versatile packs of paper and card are designed to help add layers of depth, colour, and texture to your album. No matter your chosen design or size, with help from cutting tools, you'll be sculpting and shaping your next scrapbook design with ease.

  • Ribbons - Looking to tie things together in style? Why not accentuate your Scrapbook with help from our extensive collection of ribbons, bows and washi tapes. From polka-dots to stripes, bold colours to subtle shades, these can be the perfect finishing touch to any scrapbook page.

Die Cutting

If you're looking to cut, sculpt, and re-shape your chosen paper or cardstock into a wide array of designs, then the process of die-cutting will no doubt help your next Scrapbook project shine, all whilst giving you a new skill.

With help from durable machines such as the Gemini Die Cutting and Embossing Machine you can be confident that each and every page of your album will dazzle and astound.

Designed to cut through materials with ease, leaving each finished item both crisp and clear, here at The Range we've got a wide selection of themed collections to choose from, such as Patterned Dies, Novelty Dies, Seasonal Dies, and even Floral Dies.
