    Go check out Hobby Lobby or Michael's. They both have an entire scrapbook section including books, scrapbook paper, stickers and embellishments, etc. Employees at the stores should be able to help you out and they may even have scrapbook classes available to take.

    Agree with above post, my friend recently went to Michael's and found these plastic sheets where you could slip things inside pockets like pictures or other nic-naks that she had been saving. The sheets had different size/shape pockets so you could make it work depending on what you had. If you have letters you want to include, you could find plastic sleeves for letters even at Staples, though I'm sure Michael's has them as well.

    I had a bunch of cards from DB that I wanted to save from all the birthdays/holidays and a few other nic-naks from our time together so far. I wanted to be able to read the front/inside/back of the cards and had a hard time find plastic sleeves that would fit cards so I opted to make my own "book". I hole punched two holes in the cards and then bought binder rings that are sold in a pack and used two rings to hold the cards together and essentially it looks like a book and I can flip thru the cards and read everything. I also used cardboard and decorated it with cool paper for the front and back so it is more sturdy.

    Check out pinterest, tons of ideas on there, that's how I got the idea for mine.

    You can also take high quality photos or scans of them and do a shutterfly or apple book.
