  • You can buy whole kits to make a scrapbook with. It will have the background pages and embelishments. The whole thing will have the same theme, too. I made one with a kit once and was very pleased with how it turned out. I believe I got the kit at Wal Mart. Beware, scrapbooking can be addictive! Have fun with it!

  • Yes I agree. Scrapbooking can be very addicting and over time expensive as well. I've almost gone to all digital scrapping. Considering how many free downloadable kits can be found online its much cheaper for me. I recommend searching groups. There are several on here about scrapping and crafts that can give you lots of ideas and answer questions. Happy Scrapping. And yes, you can get whole themed kits from WalMart and craft stores too.

  • there is a great on-line site that has many experienced scrapbookers called On the site, there is a beginning part of the site that will help you with getting started. Just stay out of the louge if you don't want to deal with drama...:)

    BTW, the gallery of ideas over there is awesome. One of the best.
