What is scrapbooking?

 

At its most essential and simplest level, scrapbooking is the making of a scrapbook. A scrapbook is an organized collection of clippings, notes, pictures and other things. The materials can be placed in a purchased scrapbook album or a hand-made book. The scrapbook can be as simple or as elaborate as you like.

On the extreme end, scrapbooking is the practice of combining photographs, memorabilia, and written narratives, poetry, quotations, stories, or other textual content into a scrapbook style album. A few scrapbooks are mass produced, but most are unique, one-of-a-kind publications. They usually contain an accumulation of all sorts of objects such as newspaper clippings, magazine articles, play bills, ticket stubs, pressed flowers, and locks of hair.

Scrapbooks are often embellished with ribbon or other pieces of fabric, colorful graphics, and other artwork. These artifacts of history are attached to the album pages. Many different types of scrapbooks have been made including family histories, personal journals and memories, and historical records of organizations, military units, and other groups. Personal scrapbooks provide a unique view into the thoughts, lives, and activities of their creator(s) for subsequent generations. Some of the best and most valuable scrapbooks are simple, focused documents that are directed to one single topic or subject. Scrapbooking is the fastest growing craft industry in the United States. The advent of computers has expanded the techniques available for producing, duplicating, and distributing scrapbooks
