Choosing a Scrapbook Kit
"I really only understand myself, what I'm really thinking and feeling, when I've talked it over with my circle of female friends. When days go by without that connection, I feel like a radio playing in an empty room".
Anna Quindlen, Pulitizer prize winning journalist and mother
Scrapbooking is all about connecting! It is the art of storytelling and preserving life's precious moments to share with friends, family and loved ones for future generations to come.
Things to consider when choosing a Scrapbook Kit:
For the quickest ‘jump start' – see our pre-embellished album collection. All of the pages are pre-made – textured, hand-sewn and embellished with tags, words, fibers etc – that you can just add your photos for a completed look or further personalize it with your own words, mementos and more!
Kids are getting into scrapbooking and it is a wonderful way to bring the family together. They love to express themselves in this art form. We recommend our Mini-Kits, 8x8 and 12x12 "Starter Scrapbook Kits" especially around popular themes like friends, girl, boy or princess.
For the intermediate and advance scrapbooker – we offer a wide range of supplies and 3-D embellishments that make your designs ‘pop' with style. We also have more advanced Idea Books like "Designer Pages" and our Complete Scrapbook Kit, is ideal as it overflowing with supplies and comes in a sturdy Craft-T Caddy case.
We are always searching for the best products and attend all of the key scrapbooking shows – to continually bring you the designs, styles and value that ScrapbookGifts.com is known for.

Scrapbooking started with a 12x12 album format size – to maximize the amount of photos and ‘memories' per page. But today – it has expanded to include so many different sizes from 4x4 mini-kits to 6x6 and 8x8 albums (perfect to scrapbook a special event) as well as 11x8.5.
All ScrapbookGifts.com products are reviewed to ensure that the products are of the highest quality and suitable for long-term, archival storage of your memories. Papers, plastics, pens, tapes and adhesives are chosen only if they are acid-free.
What is so important about Acid-Free Products?
Some papers are resin-coated and will destroy your scrapbook photographs in a number of years. Certain pens fade and can transfer colors into other materials. The wrong plastic films will stick to your materials, causing irreparable damage.
Ask for Acid-Free products to make sure your Scrapbook Memories are protected.
All our premium, quality albums are designed to accept additional pages, so that your scrapbook expands as your collection of memories continues to grow.
