More than likely there will be a stack of 100 year-old sepia pics of elaborately costumed, austere relatives whose names and family associations have long been forgotten. There is no way you could ever throw them away - but what do you do with them? You have a constant nagging feeling that you really should save them for future generations – create a link to the past that your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren can treasure. You may have heard of a new craze called ‘<em>scrapbooking</em>’ which does just that. But it’s as much about preserving today’s memories for future generations as it is about preserving our past. ‘Scrapbooking’ is more than just organising photos. It's about displaying them attractively, preserving other interesting bits & bobs like concert programs, tickets, newspaper articles and, most importantly, ‘journaling’ so that in years to come anyone who looks at your scrapbook will know who you are and where you were when the photographs were taken. You are capturing and storing a little piece of history about yourself, your life and your family. Scrapbookers can now go one step further in their efforts to preserve their memories. New digital print technology has dramatically reduced the cost of printing one off bound books.

This means you can design and edit your own photographic books using digital pics, scanned images, captions and text and have it professionally printed and bound at a fraction of the price it would have once cost. A new website called <b>cherishworld</b> offers free downloadable software that allows you to <em>create photobooks</em> on your computer using your own digital and scanned photographs or images, add text captions and journaling. You then send this to cherish via the web and they will send you back a professionally printed, bound book of your family history and memories in your own choice of cover styles and colours. And it’s not expensive – no more than many off-the-shelf photo albums. Cherish can also print personal greeting cards, calendars and posters providing even more ways to make the most of your family pics. Everything you need to know is available on the web – so get scrapbooking and be a part of making our generation the most documented and remembered in history. Scrapbooking: Produce Original Gifts Easily! Scrapbooking, like homemade card making, is becoming an increasingly popular pastime. Many people have turned their hobby into a business as well as providing fantastic gifts for the family and friends. If you are thinking of taking up scrapbooking either as a hobby or a potential business then you should first learn the basics. Basic scrapbooking kits are available that are inexpensive and contain all the necessary, albeit slightly basic, equipment you will initially require. Scrapbooking kits will usually include a number of designs for you try out as well as the equipment you need to do them. In some cases, this equipment can be specialized and may only be used once but in other cases you may be able to use it again and again for future scrapbooking projects. However, as you progress and gain more confidence as wall as ability it is usual to progress into creating your own unique designs and ideas. If you are creating scrapbooks to hand out as gifts on birthdays or other events then personalizing them is absolutely essential. Many people use scrapbooking to create a sort of diary of a particular day and in the case of a birthday you could scrapbook the events that occurred on the day the recipient was born. Alternatively, for anniversaries or weddings you could put together a scrapbook that looks at the couple’s lives together. Whatever theme or personal touch you choose for a scrapbook you should easily be able to produce original gifts that your family members of your loved ones will cherish. As you get better and you have more experience you will undoubtedly introduce new techniques to your creation and you may develop your own style. There are online classes as well as instructional books that will help you with your chosen hobby.

There are some excellent sites full of creative tips and suggestions to help you make your own unique scrapbooks. If you’re looking for an original way to organize your favorite photos, arranging them in special scrapbook albums could be the solution. Scrapping is a very popular hobby, and offers a wonderful way to preserve your treasured memories for posterity. It’s an enjoyable and addictive pastime that allows you to use your imagination and add your personal touches to your pages. Ready made scrapbook kits can be really good, particularly if you are making a themed scrapbook, such as for a wedding, a vacation or the birth of a baby. Pre-packaged kits come in a huge range of themes, and contain a selection of coordinated materials such as cardstock, stencils, frames or stickers. One advantage of using a kit to create your scrapbooking layouts is that it saves you the time of having to choose your supplies separately, making it quicker and simpler to design your pages.

In addition to using stickers, there are all sorts of paper piecing patterns; die cuts and other accessories that can help add color and style to your page. As well as using photographs and other visual images, many scrappers like to use words to enhance the meaning of the pictures. Journaling is a great way to record your memories and feelings related to the events in the photos. You may want to add scrapbooking quotes or poems, where appropriate, to help bring the stories to life. This can work well in both chronological or heritage scrapbooks, as well as in other types of albums. If you’re looking for new ways to display your photos and memorabilia in scrapbooks, the Internet can be an excellent source of inspiration!
