Making a Twilight Scrapbook
The beauty of scrapbooking is that it can be done on a budget or as an indulgent hobby - it all depends on you! You can make beautiful scrapbooks with the many embellishments, papers and other scrapbooking elements available, but you can also make equally wonderful books with bits and bobs lying around the house, too.
Here's an idea of what you'll need:
* A scrapbook album - this can be a pre-made themed album, or you can buy plain chipboard albums to decorate yourself
* Scrapbook papers. Generally these are 12x12 or 6x6, to match the album size, but you can cut and trim according to whatever album you choose
* Scissors, glue (choose acid-free adhesives specific to scrapbooking, so that they don't damage your photos) , photo corners
* Embellishments, chipboard alphabets, stickers, buttons, ribbon, fabric flowers, charms, card shapes
Twilight Scrapbook Albums
Choose plain albums in Twilight colours, such as this lovely deep red album, or go for pre-made Twilight designs such as the ones found on eBay below!

What is a Twilight Paper Bag Album?
When browsing for Twilight scrapbook supplies on eBay, you'll soon notice that there are a lot of Twilight Paper Bag Albums. What are these? Quite simply, they are mini scrapbook albums made out of paper bags! Several bags are usually fixed together to make a book, decorated and then embellished.
These are great to make on a budget as they cost far less than buying a proper album or chipboard book, and are great fun to put together, too! There are also some beautiful pre-made paper bag albums available on eBay below. Even if you don't want to buy a pre-made one, it is worth browsing the listings to get inspiration and ideas!
There is a great tutorial on making your own paper bag album here.
N.B. Unlike proper scrapbook supplies, paper bags are not acid or lignin-free, so will break down sooner and potentially damage your photos. So if you are making one, make sure you scan and use duplicates of photos so that you don't lose out on any important photographs in the future.
