I am starting a scrapbook and i was wondering what do i need to start it all off and the bits and bobs do i need?

Some of the basic supplies would be a 12" paper trimmer, a glue runner or other adhesive, cardstock and patterned paper, some kind of letters (stickers, chipboard or any die cut letters), a journaling pen (Zig Millenium is pretty good), some embellishments such as ribbon, buttons,etc. Journaling blocks would probably be pretty helpful.
I'm sure I'm forgetting some things, but I'm sure others will be able to add to this list.

This has to be the hardest question to answer. There is so much out there.
Maybe decide on what kind of theme and get stuff to go with it.
Hopefully everyone on here has a lot better ideas than i do!
One thing that I find important is a good paper cutter.
tape runners are great too.

Like the others.

a paper cutter
adhesive runner
a good pair of scissors

the list can be endless, but those are kind of must haves. :) :)

1st: find a helpful, friendly scrapbook forum site to help you ~ check
2nd: photos to scrap ~ check
3rd: what size album do you want to start? 12x12 or 8.5x1 or 8x8 or 6x6, etc.
4rd: maybe start with a pre-package kit
5th: glue stick (they're cheap) for adhering paper and things)
6th: photo splits (they are tiny squares to adhere your photos, easier than glue)
7th: good, sharp paper scissors
8th: now repeat this to yourself: "This is so much fun, I can't wait to do another page"

Don't do like me.....go crazy in thinking I have to have everything at once. I did that and some things I have not used.
