2. Sharp scissors (which you will be hiding from now on).
3. Pencil and eraser.
4. Non-fading acid free pen (Pentel Hybrid Gel).
5. Scrapbooking glues (Click-it mounting squares or any other dry glue will suffice).
6. Couple of sheets of paper (Cardstock and patterned).
7. The photographs you have been storing in boxes, pillow cases and other places.
8. Album/s to store your works of art.
With these basics you can Scrap away. Your pages will be just as stunning as those created by a long time scrapper with lots of tools.
As time goes by you will get more things ... a lot more. Keep an inventory of what you have so as not to keep on purchasing duplicates. When you get to the point where you have cupboards full it is a gigantic task to create an inventory so keep a list as you shop.
Chalks/inks. Another one of those goodies that will multiply, just like a girl can not only have one pair of shoes, she can not only have one colour chalk. You will often use your chalks with stamps to create stamped images, letters or words on your layout. But you can also use your chalks to create borders by 'chalking' the edges of your photo, matt, embelishment or even page. Chalking is also used to add that finishing touch, or to attract attention to an object. It is easy to do, but remember, it is permanent, so test on a scrap piece of paper first to make sure you are happy with the colour and effect.
Eyelet setter. There are many eyelet setters available on the market, some quite noisy like the set in the photograph and others renowned for their silence. It is necessary if you want to add eyelets to your page. Usually you start my making a hole in the page. Easiest way to make sure the whole is in the correct spot is by putting the eyelet on the page and pressing lightly, it will make a light ring onto which you place you punch. Once the whole has been made, push the eyelet through, turn the page over and use the setter to open the back of the eyelet over the paper. Voila!
