I just returned from the craft store and am wanting to start a scrapbook/baby book for my son who is due in May. I bought some stuff - the books, a cutter with templates and a mat, some stickers and a few pages of paper. I went to a used book store and bought a book on scrapbooking. I do not know where to go from here. I know I want to make an expecting baby page and get a few pages started (firsts, sonagram page, etc.) Any tips on how to get started? Any websites you use? Thanks so much!!!

For paper scrapping i think the magazines are the best and so full of ideas and if this is something you are going to continue getting a subscription to one is the best idea!!! Hundreds of ideas...

As you go you will totally get a creativity streak in you and pages will come to your head like nothing!!!

Welcome!!!!! BTW - I am Nicki and I have been paper scrapping for 10 years but I am so behind. I have two little ones and still very very behind. I take more pics then I can scrap!

Welcome to the board!

A lot of sites will have a showcase section where they will display different layouts and page ideas. If you see a technique that you like, you can usually google for a tutorial, or just ask someone who works at the scrapbooking store. A lot of times the stores will offer classes too.

Click here to go to the sample gallery at craftysecrets.com.

Good luck and have fun!
