Scrapbooking Materials and Tools

Canon EOS M50 Mark II

Scrapbooking materials - camera
Buy on Amazon 

A scrapbook relies heavily on pictures so you need a good camera. I personally use this Canon EOS M50 Mark II. I like mirrorless cameras because they’re smaller and lighter, and this one also has a Wi-Fi feature so you can connect it directly to your phone.

Polaroid Originals Now I-Type Instant Camera

Buy on Amazon

For the iconic instant camera, get a Polaroid. Polaroid pictures are still the best for scrapbooking, at least for me. There’s something about the experience itself and knowing you captured the exact moment, with only one copy makes it extra special.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera

Buy on Amazon

If you want a smaller option, I highly recommend an Instax. I have both a Polaroid and an Instax and they’re both good, just that a Polaroid picture looks more vintage in colors.

Fujifilm Instax Mini Link Smartphone Printer

Though, you can also print your own photos with Fujifilm’s smartphone printer. This is a good option if you want to re-print old photos. Also, check this Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Film Value Pack.
