Ok I posted in the beginners section, but I guess I need to post here as I am completely new to all of this scrapbooking stuff. I am 46 years old and live in Branson Mo with my wonderful fiance and our two four legged children, Cody & Alaska (Maltese) We are getting married January 8, 2012 and I wanted to start a scrapbook of our journey over the next year. I am a very creative person, but am kind of clueless about this scrapbooking process. I have the paper haha got it on clearence at Micheals and that is about it! I have enjoyed toodling around the site and watching videos. I love peoples scrapbook rooms as well! So I am guess this is a highly addictive hobby. Oh boy....I think I am in trouble here! I look forward to meeting everyone and learning from the pros!

A paper trimmer.
Acid free adhesive of your choice.
Solid colored cardstock.
Patterned paper to support your pics or theme.
Imagination or inspiration - try to copy or "scraplift" a lo that you like.

Scraplifting is when you copy another person's lo (lo=layout). Cardstock is thick paper, usually used as a foundation for the lo.

I've attached some examples for you below:

I think you should check out the gallery, third tab from the left and it should answer your questions. If you need more help, try some tutorials. Good luck.

Is there a local scrap store in your area? or, does the Michael's near you run classes, basica classes with other beginners are really helpful. Other than that I highly recommend browing through the gallery every day and you will see how many different styles of scrapping there are and you will choose what feels right for you.

I found a scrapbooking store here in Branson called Scrapbooks Forever. I called and they will start having classes as they are under new ownership! So I am excited! Thanks so much ladies
