new to scrapbooking.....

Posted by   + Show Post
I am going to start scrapbooking. Where is everyone's favorite place to get scrapbooking stuff? Is there a starter kit that comes with everything I will need to start?

DOnt know if you have Hobby Lobby near you or Michaels- but those 40% off coupons are the way to go!

Welcome!!!!   I started because my mom got some sets on sale at QVC (home shopping thing) and Walmart had some starter package box sets (that came with the book, tons of stickers/tags, paper, etc). Then just went from there.

I go to Hobby Lobby a lot and generally get my stuff only when its on sale (one week it might be stickers, another paper, or nothing on sale :(  ).

There use to be a scrapbook store in the town I'm at, but it recently closed. I did get a lot of paper/stuff on the going out of buisness sale.

Michaels, etc are great too (they don't have one in the town I moved to)..

Micheals mostly. It can get pretty pricey so make sure u get those coupons off thier sale papers!!!  Check ebay for some staters kits with tools & things, there always someone clffd eaning out thier supplies!!!! & it always helps to have a scrapping buddy!!! Good Luck!!!

I started in the best way I think. I paid $5 for a class at a really nice scrapbooking store. I walked in with just my photos. I bought everything I needed that day with the discount I got from taking the class. I got a lot of great advice and ideas from the ladies that were there. I ended up with an album for the first day of my daughters life. I was really really happy.

That is a cool idea, I am now wondering if they have classes where I live. I will definitely have to check it out.
