You can’t get started on scrapbooking without having, y’know, a scrapbook. I know the color is a li’l plain, but I think that makes it a great base to start building on. It has 80 blank pages to decorate and a hardcover to keep it protected, so it basically has all the essentials. It’s also not too pricey, so you can always grab another if you run out of space.

Using ribbon is such a cute way to add texture and color to your scrapbook pages. You could use it to create a border around pics or even to underline important words. I like that this set comes with a mixture of pastel and rainbow colors, so you can really play around with different colors on your pages.
I’m not known for having a super tidy desk, and I think my boyf might move out if I get into scrapbooking and make it super messy. So, I’m thinking these paper clips are a smart solution. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, to keep together scrapbooking materials big and small.

If you like a clean finish and don’t want any tape ruining your page’s aesthetic, double sided tape is totes the solution. Just roll it slowly, and you’ll have a smooth AF finish.

I’ve gotta say, washi tape has to be my fave stationary trend. You can get it in so many colors and styles, and it’s super sustainable, as it isn’t plastic like regular tape. Each box comes with five rolls of tape, and you can choose from a variety of palettes. The spring and flamingo ones are my personal faves, FYI.
Sure, you can print off pictures on your computer or on an app — but there’s a reason instant cameras have become so popular. They capture spontaneous moments, and quickly print them out, too. This camera is perfect for putting in your bag and taking with you to snap pics, to then decorate scrapbook pages around.
