Scrapbooking is an age old craft of creating your own story photo album. Scrapbooking is all the rage right now because people are interested in preserving there families history and creating a legacy that can be handed down from mother to daughter or son. What you will find with any scrapbooking products is that they are made to last forever. The paper is acid free and hopefully any photos that you use will also withstand the test of time.
The old way of getting your pictures and putting them in a photo album is not a very good way to showcase the story of your family and the life that you lead. With a scrapbook you still have the pictures but you also add the story so that someone can better see, hear, and feel what was going on in the pictures that you originally captured on film.
I started scrapbooking after attending a Stampin' Up! workshop here in Calgary about 5 years ago and have been hooked ever since.
I have friends that have scrapbooked for years and have myself become a scrapbooker as well as many friends and relatives. Once you try it and get started on your first scrapbook I am sure you will be hooked too!
Scrapbooking is something that the whole family can get involved in as in many homes children will make their own little scrapbooks or "brag books" as we like to call them.
