What is Scrapbooking?
Scrapbooking is addictive!
Don't just leave those photo's of that holiday of a lifetime, wedding day, birth of a child or special birthday lying in a draw - make them into something special and emphasise the mood of the occasion!
Scrapbooking takes that photo album one step further, the idea is to place the photo onto backgound papers and embellish with anything you choose, e.g. frames, stickers, ribbons to enhance those memories.
You can also add journalling which can be just a few words or a paragraph to remind you in later years what exactly happened.
You can now get scrapbooks and products in a range of sizes, 8" x 8" and 12" x 12" are probably the most popular, but 4" x 4" and 6" x 6" are also available for those perhaps in a hurry or if you want to be able to carry those memories around with you in your handbag.
See the Acid & Lignin free section for care when scrapbooking.
Below is an example of a scrapbook page courtesy of Hot Off the Press, you can really let your creative juices run free!
