Have you ever heard of the term scrapbook or scrapbooking? Scrapbooking is actually the preservation of family or personal history by using a scrapbook. A typical scrapbook includes photographs, art works, and printed media which commonly contain extensive journaling.

Creating a scrapbook is really fun and interesting. However, not too many people enjoy doing it. One reason why many people don’t create their own scrapbook is because of the readily available photo albums which they can purchase in department stores. To tell you honestly, creating your own scrapbook is very easy, even a 6 years old kid can create a wonderful scrapbook. And they are cheaper as compared to photo albums which are readily available in department stores.

A scrapbook doesn’t only show photographs but they also tell stories. Stories that captivate the interest of the viewers and make them want to continue turning the pages of your scrapbook. Say for example, a photo of people laughing is really a nice thing to see, but what if you will include a story about why those people in the photograph are laughing or the reasons for their actions, isn’t that great to know?

Scrapbooks tend to be the extension of one’s self since it reflects your style and your personality. Just like in designing your own house, you also have all the freedom to design your own scrapbook. From the size, you can decide how large or how small your scrapbook would be depending on the contents you would like to add in the scrapbook. With the color theme, you can choose any color that matches the theme of your scrapbook. And with the adornments, you can add anything that fits the overall layout of your scrapbook. Like if you are creating a scrapbook for your baby, you can add the letters of the alphabet in the front page as embellishment.

Scrapbooks are not just a display in your house for visitors and relatives to view. They also serve as an inspiration since they bring back the memories from the good old days when those things inside the scrapbook were taken and laid out in the scrapbook. Looking at the photographs and stories inside your scrapbook will surely make you smile.

As a summary, scrapbooking is really fun. It lets you express yourself while you enjoy creating the scrapbook. It also brings out your creativity in every page of the scrapbook and allows you to explore more in creating your work of art.
