Basic Supplies for New Scrapbookers | Beginner Scrapbooking Series

Hi everyone. I was recently asked by someone wanting to start scrapbooking what supplies were needed. I put together a list and want to share it with others because I'm thinking there's more than one person out there wondering how to get started.  If you're a scrapbooker already, I'd love to hear what your basic supply list includes.

I'm going to make this into a blog as well as YouTube series, which will include:
  • Scrapbooking 101 so to speak for those looking for the basic supplies, the design elements of scrapbooking, where to go for inspiration more.
  • Intermediate and Advanced Scrapbooking for those looking to go beyond the basics - playing with mixed media, ink, die cut machines, sewing...
Stay tuned.  For now, let's chat about the basic supplies needed to start scrapbooking...

Basic Supplies for New Scrapbookers

  • Fiskars paper trimmer: I included two below. Look for the one that does not have the wire so it's hassle free! I love mine because I get a precise cut every single time. 
  • Tonic scissors: I've had mine for over 5 years now and they are still shrap!  Also, nothing sticks to these and they don't make my hand cramp when I'm fussy cutting.
  • Tape Runner Adhesive: I use the Sticky Thumbs tape runner as well as the Scotch ATG, which is larger than your average tape runner. I recently switched to the ATG tape runner for two reasons - you don't have to refill the tape as often so it lowers the cost and second, the adhesive on several of my older layouts stopped sticking and my photos and papers came apart. I asked around and this had rave reviews from trusted scrappers!
  • Double Sided Tape: Another great options for tape runner.  Works well with metals, wood veneer, and more.
  • Liquid Adhesive: This is one of several that I used.  I find that the glue settles nicely and doesn't leave visible lumps when I glue things together.
  • Glue Dots: these are a must have for every scrapbooker and card maker. The perfect amount of adhesive for small, individual embellishments.
  • Dimensional Foam Dots: don't scrapbook without these!  These allow you to add a pop of dimension to your scrapbook layouts!  Selectively place them under photos, paper, embellishments to make things stand out on the page.
  • White 12"x12" textured cardstock: this is my go-to staple that I use as the foundation for most of my pages.  
  • Black .03 pen: for journaling and doodling.
  • Patterned paper collection - search Pink Paislee, American Crafts, Pebbles, Elle's Studio for the latest collections.  They release new collections every few months.
  • Embellishments such as stickers, chipboard, die cuts (ephemera) that coordinate with the collection
  • Thickers alphabet chipboard: these are great for titles!
Here are some places I like to shop. I thought I'd give you variety. I've included affiliate links to Scrapbook.com as well as Amazon. You don't pay more for the products but I do receive a small % of the sale.

Day to Remember Scrapbooking Layout

Hi everyone! I'm here with a scrapbooking layout using the new Elle's Studio Title Builder Vol. 2 Stamp and the Noteworthy collection. This project can be easily recreated by stamping on patterned paper or cardstock but I chose to dabble in a bit of mixed media to create something different.







I knew I wanted to mix stamped words from the awesome new Title Builder Vol. 2 Stamp with some of the words from pattern #3 in the Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection. I also knew that I wanted to create a super long title about spending family time together. What I didn’t know was what photo I wanted to use. That said, I have tons to choose from so I knew it wouldn’t be too hard, so I created this layout completely based on the structure for the title. That’s kind of scary but also kind of fun to start with a title!



There’s a lot of awesome words included on the Noteworthy patterned paper #3 and I wasn’t sure which ones I wanted to use but I knew I wanted to cut them out. I also knew I didn’t want to cut them all out by hand so I used my Silhouette and the PixScan to cut practically all the words out. I think that was a bit of pro-scrap-tination, if you you know what I mean. While the words were cutting, I decided to play with gesso and mists to create some colorful backgrounds to stamp on. I wanted a watercolor effect so I played around with 5 colors. Once dried, I had to figure out what I wanted to say in the title. I ended up choosing three phrases and I stamped the same words from the Title Builder Vol. 2 Stamp over each color, to have a variety of colors to choose from for each word. Once I had all the words cut out from both the patterned paper and the stamped words, I lined them up against the left side of the paper, adding a patterned paper strip from the Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack between the phrases. I also stitched over the words to secure them down.



I decided to scrap a photo we took together on a recent trip to the dude ranch. We went on long horse rides in the Texas hill country several times a day and had a great time together doing all the activities the ranch offered. I decided to keep the layering behind the photo light and instead anchored it with a long patterned paper to even the page out. I also chose to add a couple of embellishments, like the Noteworthy Wood VeneerNoteworthy Puffy Stickers and Noteworthy Epoxy Stickers over and around it to draw the eye around.



I still need to add journaling under the “highlights” Noteworthy Word Label. There’s so much to say about this experience and I still need to put my thoughts together.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you’d like to see how this came together, check out my YouTube channel!

Hello darling butterfly scrapbooking layout and process video

Hi everyone. I'm here today with a butterfly scrapbooking layout that can be completed in 45 minutes if you have the right tools and can work fast.

To help you along the way, I've documented the process in a video, which I will post tomorrow so be sure to check back..

Once you get the patio party collection in your hands, or any other supplies you'd like, you can follow along with me to create this fun layout.

Butterfly scrapbooking layout andprocessvideo by @heatherleopard using @pebblesinc #jenhadfield #patioparty collection #madewithpebbles

Paper piecing - 12 minutes

Butterfly scrapbooking layout andprocessvideo by @heatherleopard using @pebblesinc #jenhadfield #patioparty collection #madewithpebbles

To get started, cut a supersized butterfly using your electronic cutting machine. Peel the butterfly from the mat and also save the larger bits you cut out to use as templates for filling in the holes with patterned paper. Next, choose 5 - 7 coordinating patterned papers. This is where you could spend too much time overthinking things. DO NOT overthink the pattern placement. If you are working with papers within the same collection, chances are they will look good next to each other. Just pick up a paper and get started.

Starting at the top, select the template you reserved from the butterfly. Place it over your patterned paper and cut around it, leaving just enough edge around the perimeter - maybe 1/8" or 1/4" inch. It just really depends on the design. Once you've cut that out, discard the template and adhere the patterned paper to the back of the butterfly. You should have a perfect or near perfect fit. Repeat until all spaces are filled.

Secure the butterfly to the page, machine stitching down the center and adhering the left patterned paper side with foam dots.

Butterfly clustering - 12 minutes

Butterfly scrapbooking layout andprocessvideo by @heatherleopard using @pebblesinc #jenhadfield #patioparty collection #madewithpebbles

Next, you are going to add flower and butterfly embellishments to the top of the other side. Make sure you save space for your photo (I used a 3"x3" inch photo. I adhered my photo using foam dots and then filled in around it, adding flowers and butterflies. Once that was complete, I moved along the butterfly, adding flowers and butterflies along the edge of the butterfly and working inward to fill in all the spaces. I adhered some directly to the paper with liquid glue and I popped others up using foam dots. I worked this pretty fast to fill in all the spaces.

Add the finishing touch - 6 minutes

Butterfly scrapbooking layout andprocessvideo by @heatherleopard using @pebblesinc #jenhadfield #patioparty collection #madewithpebbles

In the time remaining, you just need to add a title, a cluster or flowers / butterflies on the patterned paper wing and around the title and journaling.

Craft along with me

Check back tomorrow to watch the process video I created for this butterfly scrapbooking layout.  I sped up the time so you don't have to sit and watch me for 45 minutes.  Remember: don't overthink this, you too can re-create this in under an hour, maybe even 30 minutes if you don't have any interruptions.

Stars and Stripes Scrapbooking Layout

Hi everyone, I am here today with a stars and stripes scrapbooking layout using the Land that I Love collection.  Y'all, I'm not usually one for red, white and blue collections but this one is is truly great!  Come take a look at what I created and then come back tomorrow - I'll be posting the process video I created for this layout. Stars and Stripes Scrapbooking Layout and Process Video by @heatherleopard using the @pebblesinc #LandThatILove collection #madewithpebbles #heatherleopard #fourthofjuly #patriotic #scrapbooking #scrapbook #starsandstripes #4thofjuly

I snapped these photos of my girls last summer, while we were celebrating the fourth of July in beautiful Hawaii.  We had a great day of fun in the sun and then that night, we caught a parade and watched the fireworks beach side in Kona.  It was a wonderful way to celebrate!

Gather your supplies

Making the Cut

Stars and Stripes Scrapbooking Layout and Process Video by @heatherleopard using the @pebblesinc #LandThatILove collection #madewithpebbles #heatherleopard #fourthofjuly #patriotic #scrapbooking #scrapbook #starsandstripes #4thofjuly

Cut 3 supersized star outlines, smaller stars and the curved strip for the shooting star part of the design.  Keep the inside portions of the stars. We will use one of them, or you may choose a different pattern like I did, for the center of the star part of the layout.

Assemble the page

Stars and Stripes Scrapbooking Layout and Process Video by @heatherleopard using the @pebblesinc #LandThatILove collection #madewithpebbles #heatherleopard #fourthofjuly #patriotic #scrapbooking #scrapbook #starsandstripes #4thofjuly

Lay the stars on the page overlapping each other.  Once you like the placement of them, pick them up and staple them together so they're secure. Next, spray blue mist and just a tad of the red mist on the white cardstock.  Once dry, place the stars back down and then using a pencil, lightly make a mark on the white cardstock in a star pattern.  Set the stapled star aside and machine stitch a star on the background paper.  I stitched the star three times to make sure it would really show up. Stars and Stripes Scrapbooking Layout and Process Video by @heatherleopard using the @pebblesinc #LandThatILove collection #madewithpebbles #heatherleopard #fourthofjuly #patriotic #scrapbooking #scrapbook #starsandstripes #4thofjuly

Now it's time to add the shooting star trail to the background.  Postition them so they appear to be coming out of the stars.  Stitch these down with your sewing machine. Now you can add the stars back, and adhere them this time!

Finishing touch

Stars and Stripes Scrapbooking Layout and Process Video by @heatherleopard using the @pebblesinc #LandThatILove collection #madewithpebbles #heatherleopard #fourthofjuly #patriotic #scrapbooking #scrapbook #starsandstripes #4thofjuly

I added layers behind the photo and adhered them over the stars using foam dots and then sprinkled additional stars from the cut file (some adhered flat and pothers popped up), the Tickers sheet and the puffy stickers.  Then and only then did I realize I hadn't added a title yet.  Luckily, I was able to add the first part of the title above the star and the 2nd part below the photo.  Phew!  I reserved room for journaling  under all the pointy parts of the star there.

Check back tomorrow for a process video I created for this stars and stripes scrapbooking layout. In the meantime, I hope you'll download my cut file and share your projects with me here on the blog or social media.

I was elated to find home, birthday and love themed goodness so I was set but have you seen the other letterboard embellishments? They are awesome!


Forever my always

Letterboard Love Forever my Always Letterboard by Heather Leopard using  DCWV letterboard  for @pebblesinc using @homebydcwv #letterboard #forevermyalways #xoxo #DIY

After I tore apart each package and sorted them into some plastic bins to get organized, I kept getting drawn to the Love theme.  I seriously think it was because I I was in love with everything I got but anyway, I decided on the quote, "You will forever be my always" - author unknown. I started placing each letter but I noticed some of the letters still had pieces of plastic where they were previously connected so I pulled out my trusting crafting files.

I just filed those little bits away, with a little help from my daughter. I really don't think anyone but me would have noticed but it's much better now.

I have to say, I've had letterboards before but I love how big these are and the materials they used but my favorite things are the incredible mix of alphas and embellishments.  The embellishments add the perfect finishing touch.

Heather Leopard's Craft Room Tour

Hello and welcome to my craft room tour.  My space is a combination of a DIY and scrapbooking space as well as my work space, as I work from home full time.  So let's take a stroll around the room!

You can shop this room at the end of the post.  Product links contained in this post may include affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale. Thank you!

Craft Room Organization and storage ideas to make the most of any space | @heatherleopard 's #ScrapbookingSpace #craftroom #craftroomorganization #scrapbookingroom #scrapbooking #craftroommakeover #scrapbook


Designing my craft room

When my I designed this room, I planned for the following:
  1. Bright white walls that I could add color to with decor and craft projects of course
  2. To set up my scrap space as close to the natural light as possible.  
  3. Five distinct work areas - scrapbooking / crafting, sewing, photo staging, my work / computer space and a kids' section 
  4. Storage - plenty of cabinets in varying sizes to stash all my craft goodies, including my printers and larger tools
Let's walk through each of these areas...

Bright white walls with pops of color and natural light  


This is an early stage photo of my space to show you that I was serious about the white.  I decided to create one VERY long desk that spans 2 and a half walls along the perimeter of the room. Check out the natural light I get to work with!
I usually hang my most recent projects in the space under the word "#CREATE" so my family and I can look at the story before they get put away in albums. If you ask me, "do they actually come look at them?", the answer is YES! This photo features some of my older layouts. Those are all put away in albums now.

Scrapbooking Space / Craft Desk 

 

While my window shades are closed in this photo, they are always open.  Ironically, the best lighting to show off this space was when the window was closed.  Oh, and don't mind the lamp shade that's too small for the lamp.

Crafting Video / Process Video Setup



I also have a video arrangement for shooting process videos of my crafts.  I currently use a tripod with an extension arm and a bracket that holds my DSLR or can be swapped out for an iPhone grip. I'm not loving the tripod since it has to stand on my desk.  I tend to accidentally bump it occasionally and it takes up space.  In the coming weeks, my husband will either insert a pole into my desk or clamp the pole to my desk on the other side of the lamp that I can attach the extender arm to.

Storage for craft supplies

Like most crafters, I have way too many craft supplies and I needed a solution that would hide it all away.

Sitting on top of my desk is this "imagination station".  The drawers at the bottom hold white cardstock because I use it for everything, Silhouette CAMEO cutting mats, and things I've cut from cardstock that I want to re-use.  For instance, perhaps I needed to cut a large background, shapes or alphabet for a project. Many times, the negative version of the cut would make a great design.  Or perhaps something went wrong with the cut but it cut most of it correctly.  I can use the part that was cut correctly on another project. You can see what I have in the rest of the station.

I have a Raskog cart that is currently being underutilized.  Right now it holds the basket that holds all my large 6" x 12" alphabet sheet. This is a basket made out of paper and while the angle makes it look shorter than it really is, it's a great size for holding these alpha sheets.  I can easily flip through them.

Each side of my craft space has a set of drawers. They hold all the things. I've included a list below that you may consider using for your craft room organization.

Craft Room Organization Labeling / Sorting Ideas

I store all the items listed above in five sets of the cabinets that also act as the bases for my supersized desk. You can see the other set holding up my work desk at the end of my post.

These hold my adhesives, glitters, inks, stamps, punches, sewing supplies, mists, paints, card bases, the list goes on and on.  Everything has a place but if I have to be honest not everything always goes back in it's place.  I'm making it a goal this year to pack everything back up when I finish a project. Who's with me?

To the right of my craft drawers under my sewing station is where I keep all the current collections I've received from companies design for. These need to be at my fingertips at all times. I usually keep my paper trimmer on the top but it's not currently pictured.
This organizer holds the standard plastic bins and easily holds tons of 12"x12" paper, Thickers, sticker sheets, die cuts and all the embellishments.  I use one per collection so I can easily find what I need. I can even fit a large punch! Look how good it all fits in there.

The gadgets

My printers and larger tools are located in an armoire next to my desk (see the full armoire in my work desk photo below). It's one of my favorite things.

The top part holds all my main craft tools - my large and small printers, printer accessories, Cameo, Cinch, Big Shot and more.  My hubby built shelves that slide so I can pull things in and out as needed. I'm in the process of adding another shelf to better accommodate a few more items, like the Minc you see sitting on it's side.


The bottom has room to fit 3 super large plastic bins across and about 6 high.  I store older collections I'm not ready to part with, alterable things, momentos, etc. This is an older photo used for the purpose to show you what the cabinets looks like at the bottom when you open the cabinet doors.

Stichity stitch stitch sewing area

The sewing area is just an extension of the craft space because 95% of what I sew is paper. That said, my daughters love to sew and I recently sewed a poodle skirt for my daughter's school play.

Photo staging area

Once I am done creating my projects, I move them over to the area of my room where I take staged photos. A lot of times, I am creating for a season that's a month or two away so this space comes in real handy during those times.

My staging center includes this desk I purchased at Target, which has a drawer to hold my backgrounds. I hung bead board on the wall, which I purchased at my local hardware store  And then I have cabinets with dividers under the table to hold all my props, some of which are currently on the table. This enables easy access to themed goodies.  I don't put them away each season as many were purposefully purchased to span multiple seasons. For instance, a red platter can work for Christmas, Valentines, Patriotic stuff, etc.

Work Space

I work full time as a Marketing Manager for a major tech company and I primarily work from home.  I put my work area so that my back would face all the crafty goodies so I won't be tempted to craft instead of work!  I also have a personal laptop that I can connect to my monitors in the evenings and weekends when I need to create cut files, designs and blog.

Space for the kids to craft



I purchased this armoire back before I had a dedicated scrap space.  It's awesome because it has a section across the top that fits 12x12 papers and it also folds out to make a desk.  There's lots of cubbies and drawers to hold goodies.  My girls each have a drawer on the left for their supplies and when they are ready to create, they just fold the door down and voila, a table top just for them!  Since it's black, I don't have to stress about ink that may not make it on the paper.

The gold and black locker holds my fabrics and vinyl.
