Scrapbooking Techniques

The Ultimate Mini Album Website

One of the best parts of scrapbooking is learning scrapbooking techniques. So far we've given you lots of ideas on different types of mini scrapbooks to make. The bones of the books themselves. Now we want to give you all kinds of ideas for the techniques for mini scrapbooking. The stuff that goes inside the books! These are ideas for you to incorporate into the pages of your mini albums. Of course, your photographs are the most important thing to put in your albums, with your journaling about the various events being a very close second. But you want to set these things off in clever and fun ways as well. That is where this page of ideas comes in.

We will be giving you ideas on elements to add to your mini scrapbooks, background techniques for your books, and just a plethora of ideas for you to use as you make these types of scrapbooks. And, of course, you can also use these same ideas in your larger scrapbook layouts.

We would also love to hear from you and are welcoming submissions for this page. Please see the form at the end of the page for information on doing that. Together we can make this a huge resource or ideas!
