Adding Your Photos

You've got your pictures ready, and selected your perfect album; now it's time to add your photos. You have several options, so here are some pointers to help you choose the best method for your specific project.
If you're looking for a way to mount pictures without damaging the actual photograph, or if you want the option to move or swap out photos at a later time, these next few methods might be better options for you.  

Photo corners are a great way to mount your pictures. Just slide the corners onto your picture and carefully place onto your page. Photo corners come in a variety of colors and styles so it should be easy to find some that match the colors in your project.  They're can be found online or at your local craft store.

Another tactic you can try that won't do any permanent damage to your photos is to use a craft knife and cut small slits on your pages (or onto cardstock you are using as a photo mat) and slide the corners of your photos in. Also available are page protectors with individual pockets to put all your pictures; this too is another adhesive-free way to add your pictures, and especially helpful if you plan to move or change pictures in the future.  

One of the most popular (and permanent) ways to add pictures into a scrapbook is to mount them directly to the page using adhesive. There are many types of adhesive available for scrapbooking: glue sticks, tape runner, liquid glue, glue dots, 3D adhesives -- just be sure the one you use is acid and lignin free.  This will prevent your scrapbook from premature aging.  
Once your photos are in place it's time to decorate and embellish your book!
