It might help to start with a scrapbooking kit; they come with coordinating papers and some embellishments. If you buy one, all you really need is adhesive and a paper trimmer.
They can be purchased with 40% off coupons at Hobby Lobby, JoAnns or Michaels. (At hobbylobby.com you can print out a coupon to use each week; they are also in some Sunday papers. For JoAnns, sign up for coupons to come in the mail or email, or watch your newspaper fliers. Michael's takes competitor's coupons.
You might enjoy some books about scrapbooking. Some of my favorites are:
The Big Picture by Stacy Julian
Photo Freedom by Stacy Julian
Page Maps by Becky Fleck
Creative Sketches by Becky Higgins
might help with the basics of design.
