Getting Started

People always ask me, “How do I get started?” They feel overwhelmed with their backlog of printed photos and those saved on their phones and computers. 

Here is my advice…

Step 1: Pick ONE Project to Start

Decide which life event you want to celebrate and start there.

Here are a few project ideas:

  • Baby Album
  • Wedding or Anniversary Album
  • School Album
  • Special Vacation, Family Reunion, Special Birthday
  • Tribute Album, Military Service Album,  Retirement Album
  • Pet or Animal Album
  • Friends or Family Album
  • Courtship Album
  • Christmas Album
  • Events, Clubs, or Hobby Album

Once you pick your project, move on to step 2.

Step 2: Pick Your Photos

This part takes a little more time. Go through your printed photos, your phone, your computer, your Facebook account, ask your friends and family for photos and memorabilia and start organizing it all together.

It is ok to discard blurry photos, eliminate duplicates, and become very selective.

Once you’ve picked your photos, move on to step 3.

Step 3: Pick Your Products

I recommend using Creative Memories albums, papers, and products because I know these have been tested for long-term use.

Albums created with Creative Memories products LAST!

For beginners, I recommend 12×12 Fast2Fab™ Predesigned Album Bundles and these must-have tools:

  • Personal Trimmer
  • A Dual-Tip Pen
  • The Tape Runner or Repositionable Tape Runner

You can see these on my Creative Memories online store and on the Shop Supplies page.

Once you’ve ordered your products, or if you have any questions on selecting and purchasing scrapbooking supplies, move on to step 4.
