Learning to Scrapbook at Our Apartments in Mount Dora, FL
Are you looking for a fun and unique way to preserve your memories and stretch your creative muscles? Why not consider starting a scrapbook? Scrapbooking is a hobby that is well-practiced in the United States and involves decorating plain sheets of paper with photographs, artwork, printed media, and other fun decorations. You could keep it centered on one specific theme (like traveling) or make it a project that chronicles your daily life.
If youre going to start scrapbooking, here are some beginner terms youll want to remember:
Page protector Protective plastic sheets to cover your scrapbook pages.
Cropping Trimming a photo to fit a particular shape, or to eliminate unnecessary elements in the background.
Corner rounder This is a type of punch that rounds the corners of photos, giving them a unique look.
Mat The process of placing a photo onto cardstock for decorative effect. The cardstock is generally larger, and may be patterned or colored.
Acid free You want your papers, pens, and other materials to be free of acid because acid can cause papers to disintegrate and photos to deteriorate over time.
These terms and many others will soon become part of your everyday vocabulary once you begin scrapbooking and learn the lingo. Its a fun hobby to cultivate and it will give you many wonderful, personalized books filled with your memories to look back on.
