I also set a budget, estimating how much money I need to spend, and then tacking on a little extra in case I find something really wonderful. I love embellishments like stickers and other accents—and it’s easy to get carried away.
When I look back on my albums, I find the pages I really love are very simply done with minimal embellishments, not those using all the stickers on the sheet.
All you need to get started is a piece of background paper, some black or white cardstock to mat your photos, and maybe a few embellishments and a pen or computer to add journaling. Sorry That I: Went overboard with patterned scissors.
Pattern-edged scissors (think of pinking shears, but in lots of different patterns) were a big deal when I first started scrapbooking.
I advise scrappers to keep photos in classic shapes, like squares and rectangles.
And as you get better at taking photos, you’ll need to trim them less and less.
Recently I wanted ballet items for a few photos of my daughter.
I went to a scrapbooking convention, where the shopping choices are abundant.
Otherwise, I would have ended up with a lot of leftovers.
In economics, physical capital or just capital is a factor of production (or input into the process of production), consisting of machinery, buildings, computers, and the like.
The production function takes the general form Y=f(K, L), where Y is the amount of output produced, K is the amount of capital stock used and L is the amount of labor used.
You might look back on your first pages and think, “gee, my style has changed since those early days! ”) But I promise you will never regret putting a lot of journaling on your page.
