Top Ten Supplies every new scrapbooker needs!

1. Trimmer - don't try to cut those photos or paper with scissors, you'll have get it straight.

2. Adhesive - you need one that will hold heavy paper but won't be so sticky that you can't change your mind and move it.

3. Adhesive - you also need one that is super sticky and will hold buttons and the thickest of paper.

4. Cardstock - if you buy no other paper you can make beautiful scrapbook pages with cardstock alone, it also makes an excellent base for your pattern paper.

5. Scissors - you will need them for smaller cuts, to cut embellishments, ribbons, flax, etc. Tip: Have a separate pair that you tie a bow on that you ONLY USE for ribbons, they'll stay super sharp.

6. Idea Book - it's easy to feel overwhelmed when you are first starting out. Why not give yourself a head start and have a book which tells you step by step how to put together beautiful layouts.

7. Pattern paper - although you can do a layout completely with cardstock, you don't have to! Pattern paper adds so much to your layout that it alone can be your decoration.

8. Distressing tool - I use a foam tool with has a handle, distressing is a great way to make your pattern papers pop off the page and also not blend in together or look too busy.

9. Ink - Dark brown is the most versatile ink for distressing but it doesn't hurt to have some black and a few other colors too.

10. Album - You need some place to display all those fun pages you are going to make!
