Essential Rubber Stamping & Scrapbooking Supplies

By: Kathy Williams

Are you new to rubber stamping or a professional? The following supply list will assist the novice rubber stamp hobbyist and even the scrapbooker as well as spark some interest for the advanced paper craft artist. While there are thousands of various supplies that can be used in rubber stamping and scrapbooking, we have tried to highlight the most important ones.
Stamping Ink: Rubber stamp pads come in a wide variety of colors and shades. Outside of their usual usage, stamp pads can be used to tint and colorize embellishments as well as distress paper and chipboard.
Stickers: Sticker options available are endless and you'll be excited to find unique types and styles including velvet, gel, and even three-dimensional brands. If you're very creative, you can even make your own stickers with any one of the commercially avaible sticker adhesive machines.

Why not recycle those adorable magazine pictures as stickers in a timeless scrapbook album?
Ribbon: Rubber stamping and scrapbooking ribbons come in many widths from 2" to 1/8" depending on what you need for your specific format. Color coordinated ribbons can be purchased at your local hobby store. Scrapbooking ribbon today is especially designed for the current trends and styles.
Staples, buttons, and metal fasteners: Scrapbooking embellishments include metal fasteners, colored staples, faux flowers, buttons, and paper clips. Items usually found at an office supply store have now become important to have on hand while scrapbooking stamping. Create coordinated sets of embellishments by purchasing white embellishments and colorize them with stamp ink or paint. Having embellishments that perfectly match your paper and are coordinated to compliment each other will add a special touch to every project.
Card stock: Handmade, hand dyed, printable fabric stock paper are all available for your scrapbooking pleasure! Acid free products, which will keep your memorable albums from harmful deterioration for the longest time possible, are important for your memories to last forever.
Scrapbooking Albums: You'll want to make sure that your memories last many lifetimes and finding a good album is very crucial. The standard album sizes are 6x 6, 12 x 12, and 8.5 x 11. These sizes are perfectly suited to the most common sizes of scrapbooking paper. They can also be found in smaller sizes, however, and can even be custom-made for special projects.
While you only need a few supplies and your creativity to have fun in stamping and scrapbooking, these supplies will make your time spent scrapbooking and rubber stamping even more enjoyable.
