Scrapbooking is not only a way to preserve your life’s most joyous occasions, it’s also a welcome respite from the rushes of daily living. Making a scrapbook is a rewarding activity, however, it can become an expensive hobby with all the decorative papers, cardstocks, and embellishments you need to buy. Below are a few tips that will allow you to enjoy scrapbooking even on a tight budget:
Use Left Over Supplies
Starting a new project doesn’t necessarily mean buying new supplies. If you have left over papers, stickers, or ribbons, see if you can use them for your new scrapbook before purchasing more supplies. With a little creativity, even left over supplies can be turned into beautiful embellishments.
Scrapbook with Family and Friends
If you have friends or relatives who also scrapbook, get together so you can share tools and supplies with each other. Who knows, they might just have that perfect powder blue paper or that cute stamp you really need. Aside from being able to share supplies, scrapbooking is also a great way to spend quality time with your fellow enthusiasts.
Order Supplies Online
Nowadays, scouring craft stores isn’t the only way to buy scrapbook supplies. Online scrapbooking stores not only have cheaper prices but also regularly offer sales. To get even more savings, consider buying supplies in bulk.
