A perpetual album is one that a scrapbooker adds to as photos are taken and stories are recorded about the subjects in the album. In order to have the supplies needed to keep a perpetual album going (papers, cardstock, ribbons, buttons, etc.) there needs to be a place where the supplies can be stored together. You can have files, containers or notebooks. Below are some of the containers you could use that are found at Scrapbook.com. Learn more about perpetual albums in The Scrapbook's Guide (e-Book) Scrapbook Planning and Cover Designs (see below).
