Save Memories of Your Pet with Supplies from Scrapbook Stores Online
Pets are beloved members of the family, and whether they've already passed away or they're still with you, wouldn't it be a nice thing to do something special and preserve their memories through a scrapbook? However, before you search for reputable online scrapbooking stores and purchase acrylic albums, glitter glue, or pens and markers, there are a few things you should first consider when getting supplies and deciding on a layout.
Get the Photos and Info Ready
You can estimate just how much paper and accessories you'll be needing by preparing all the photos and other memorabilia first. You might want to include some nice quotes and sayings about your pet (e.g. "Happiness is a warm puppy" - Charles M. Schulz). In fact, if you want to make a comprehensive album about your pet's life, you could even include some details about his history, such as when he was born and how he became a part of your family.
Purchase the Supplies
Now that you have a good idea on just how big a scrapbook you'll need, it's time to look for supplies. Luckily, online retailers like AllScrapbookSteals.com have a wide assortment of affordable tools and embellishments, such as ribbons, buttons, decorative brads, enamel dots, and jewel stickers. When your order finally comes in, there's little left to do but to start scrapbooking!
Come Up with Sections
When creating your album, Hobby Hub 360's contributor Rachelle de Bretagne advises that you divide it into sections:
"For example, pet visits can be accompanied by sourced material on the particular illnesses. To get great images to print, you may find brochures at the vet's office, or may be able to source them on the Internet and then print them to add to the vet section. [...]
The cute section can be used to have all the photographs of cute things to do with the pet playing with their favorite toy, or giving off facial expressions which are found to be funny or endearing."
Make a Journal
Don't forget the journal! Give your album the perfect personal touch by saving a few spaces for everything that you want to say about your special pet, including his story, how you first met, his quirky traits or habits, and more. You can also wrap things up with a nice message dedicated to your precious pet.
With lovely materials from excellent scrapbook stores online, you should be able to make the best scrapbook to celebrate your lasting friendship with your pet. This way, you will always have something to remember your pet by.
