I'd go for a coordinating line with paper and embellies. K & Co has some cute girlie ones, like Berry Sweet (I love that line!). This way, it will be easier for her to put her papers and embellies together. HTH
I put together a little kit for my 8 year old dd for her birthday last year. I got everything at michaels one thing at a time so I could use Coupons so it came out to be very inexpensive. I got her an 8x8 K&C0 album (8x8 is much easier than 12x12 for a kid). Then I bought her an 8x8 stack of papers that looked very child friendly. Then I also got a couple of the little 8x8 page kits (one was beach, one was bithday, etc.) I got her a box of adhesive squares and a trimmer and that was it!
She also uses a lot of my "extras" and punches and things and she has also added to her "stash" over the past few months and I have even found myself borrowing her stuff from time to time!
A bag or plastic container filled with dollar store and Big Lots finds. You can get a bundle of things to get her started without spending a bunch of money. Then add little things to her scrapbag as she prgresses. Maybe even use new future purchases as an incentive for good grades, homework, or chores! That way if she loses interest, you don't have alot of $ invested.
(Gosh - I don't even know if it's your daughter. I just assumed!)
If you have a Target near you, they usually have a bunch of cute sb things for $1. I just picked up some paper, stickers, markers, punches, and card making kits for my 4 y/o. Yes, I know, 4 is a bit young, but she really wants to be just like mommy! Can't go wrong with items that are only a buck!
Cardstock packs, patterned paper s, gel pens, adhesive, brads, stickers, deco scissors, regular scissors, a kid friendly paper trimmer. My almost 10 year old DD has been scrapping since she was 6. I bought her a Carl trimmer (at age 6) that she has to slide the paper under rather than lift the blade. Her fingers don't get near the blade at all.
I bought the cutest pink Scrapbook bag wtih all the fixin's at Joanns. I gave it to my daughter (4) for Christmas. She loves to scrapbook. She has her own bag, book, papers, chipboard and stickers. And of course, everytime I shop, I bring her something. She makes some really great pages. Never thought of it, but I should post her book. Will have to work on that one this weekend. That would thrill her!!
