What is Scrapbooking?


I am passionate about scrapbooking, it’s been a part of my life in one way or another for more than a dozen years, since I was a sophomore in high school. There are a million ways for you to tell your story and I try to tell my story in many different ways. Some of these are constant, but most of them come and go with the times — I like trying new things, seeing what works for me, and then tweaking it to make it fit my life. One of these constants has always been scrapbooking, in some form or another.

What is Scrapbooking?

  • A creative way to document your life.
  • Memory-keeping made physical.
  • Something fun to do with your pictures.
  • Anything you want it to be.

Memory-keeping is whatever you want it to be. It’s the summation of whatever stories you feel like telling. There are no rules. There’s no panel of experts sitting on the sideline telling you what you did wrong.
