Online scrapbooking stores are great for so many reasons. First and foremost, you are likely to find plenty of ideas just from browsing the pages. Even if you don't purchase anything, new ideas are never bad! Because of all the scrapbooking addicts across the world, it's not surprising to find hundreds of scrapbooking sites. Some will offer the very latest in scrapbooking tools and supplies.

Pros and Cons of Online Scrapbooking Stores

When it comes to purchasing scrapbooking supplies online, there are a few positives and a few negatives. First, you will probably pay less than you would in retail stores. This is because the online store does not have to pay for the upkeep and design of a physical store. Therefore, you will not see that cost in the final price. However, shipping and handling will be involved, so if money is your issue, make sure you're saving before you buy. Some sellers, however, will offer free shipping if you spend a certain amount of money, so consider buying your basic supplies in bulk to save money.

Online scrapbooking stores are also likely to have a wider range of supplies than regular stores. They will probably offer the newest developments in scrapbooking before retail stores do. Another great thing that I enjoy is that some of the bigger and more popular sites will not only give you plenty of layout ideas, they will tell you how to do it, step by step. This is very convenient if you're feeling a lack of creative juices.

If you're shopping online, you should keep in mind that you will have to wait for your supplies. For those who are truly addicts, this is a very hard thing to do. However, if you find something online that you really like, try ordering in advance. Order supplies for pages that you will be getting to next week. In addition, things like carrying cases are items that you may not need right away, so go ahead and order those online. The Web can be a fabulous resource, if you are able to plan ahead just a little bit.
