lets start with a list:
cardstock, i use bazzill cardstock. it comes in a rainbow of colors and a variety of textures.
and/or tape runners, i primarily use tape runners. kokuyo and hermafix are my two favorite brands. repositionable is helpful for beginner scrappers.
patterned paper, there are so many different companies that make incredible patterned paper. some of my favorites are daisy d's, basic grey, cosmo cricket, scenic route and 7gypsies.
embellishments, these are the fun little extras that add personality to your pages.
paper trimmer, this is helpful for cutting your photos and paper straight. there are lots of different paper trimmers on the market to choose from. i use a fiskars brand trimmer.
and your photos.
ok, lets get scrappin!!
