Is my album going to include mostly photos, or do
I want to include stories and/or memorabilia? Do I need to plan to make
some pockets for some of my items?This means I need a bigger set of book binding rings or a wider spine for my album.
Am I going to mail this item somewhere after I complete it? Is it going to be too heavy or large to mail easily, or just right? Should I make a copy of my album in case the original gets lost in the mail?
What about the costs involved in the materials?
Do I need to think of cheaper alternatives for some of my embellishments
(maybe recycle some items I have around the home already) and perhaps make my own paper flowers?
Do I have lots of time to scrap? Should I choose traditional scrapbooking or something like a smash journal or Project Life?

How to Make a Scrapbook:
Here are some ways to help you decide what type of scrapbook you may like to make.
Do you have lots of mini photos you would like to have in a special album? Make an Explosion Box and you can add 24 photos to the pages and even to the outside of the box, and add some memorabilia to the inside of the box itself!
Mini Scrapbook Albums are such lovely gifts to make, can be customised completely and can be made entirely of cardstock
Paper Scrapbook Albums can be bought in a variety of sizes or customised to your needs exactly if you care to make your own
Smash Albums are great for everyday memories and even travel journaling. Here's an example from Stampin' Up!:
