When attaching a decorative brad, it is better to punch a hole first (I use 1/16 inch hole punch) and then insert the brad, rather than jamming the brad through the paper. You can also use a craft knife to cut a small slit.

When you make a card or scrapbook layout you like, take a photograph and you will be able to repeat it in future.

What is the reason that the paper can't be acidic? I am asking this because I am new to scrapbooking and I have used magazing cutouts and such.


I guess I seem a little ignorant but like I said, I am new to this.

Acid will destroy the photos. It lets off fumes. That is why old newspapers turn brown and disintegrate.

Anything with acid can permeate an entire photo album. The plastic in photo albums should be acid free and any paper products used in the album should also be acid free.

If you want to use something in your photo album that isn't acid free such as magazine photos, spray it with archival mist available and scrapbook at hobby shops.

Ever notice now old newspaper clippings turn yellow and crispy after a few years? That's because the paper is not acid-free. Regular "acidic" paper will turn yellow/brown and crispy over time, while acid-free paper won't.
