Scrapbooking is the ideal hobby for many crafters, combining whimsy and creativity with the opportunity to build a lasting heirloom.
Scrapbooks are created for sharing recipes, photos, or personal memories, quotes, poems and sayings, or whatever else that may inspire you!
Family scrapbooks are probably the most popular theme, and are often created for the holidays, birthdays, or to celebrate life's other major milestones. They also make great gifts to present to everyone from the wedding or anniversary couple ..., to the recent graduate or retiree.
While crafting a great scrapbook may sound simple to the uninitiated, the art of scrapbooking takes a tremendous eye for detail, an inate sense of color and composition, a feel for texture, a passion for organization -- and lots of heart!
