I've done a bit of it. What I would suggest (and what I did) is look for a beginner's class or something like that, where for a set fee they usually give you a book and a few supplies to start with, you take your photos with you to class and they teach you how to do a few things and you get to use all the teacher's tools. Because otherwise you could spend an arm and a leg on tools and supplies without knowing what you need, want or like. The teachers or shops around here that do scrapbooking also have scrapbook nights, where for a small fee you can go in in the evening and use the teacher's/shop's equipment. And there will be other people there you can share with and maybe demonstrations of how to do something or new equipment or something. Works really nice if you're just starting out or if you're poor, broke and can't afford too buy too many supplies at a time
I'm not sure what else to say, what else would you like to know?
