As a result, scrapbookers are forced to improvise or cut their pictures. To avoid this, before you purchase a kit, simply ensure that the photo mats are the appropriate size to display your photos.

Digital scrapbook kits also are an option. These kits are available online and can be free. You can download these kits, but you might also need a photo editor, scanner, printer and camera.
