Scrapbooking is an activity where you get to create a personalized photo album. You get to choose the design, how it looks and what materials you want to use. The great thing about scrapbooking is that you’re not only limited to photos. You can also use receipts, candy bar wrappers, awards, medals, etc. If you look at it you’re immortalizing memories that you and your loved ones shared together.

This is why a lot of people enjoy this particular hobby so much. As mentioned before, not only are you immortalizing memories but you’re also reliving it as you create your scrapbook. Having said that though, creating a scrapbook can be a lot of work which discourages others.

If you’re one those people who has been discouraged before, please allow us to change your mind and take another look at this relaxing activity. In this article we will be giving you 5 reasons why you should give scrapbooking another chance.

You can exercise creative freedom

When creating a scrapbook you get to choose the style, the materials and the theme for your scrapbook. You can actually do whatever you want with it. There are no rules so you can be as creative as you want.

Sure, there are different art forms that will also allow you to exercise creative freedom. But the difference between scrapbooking and other art forms is that you don’t necessarily have to be alone when creating it. You can do this activity with family and friends.

You get to relive those memories

Ever had that feeling of nostalgia when looking at pictures from photo albums? You get to experience those feelings too when you’re creating a scrapbook. But you won’t only be limited to photos when you scrapbook. You get to use anything that means something to you and your family.

You immortalize memories

Creating a scrapbook immortalizes those memories by giving them a proper home. You can then pass down your scrapbook to the next generation and, in a way, you’re also passing your memories to them.

It’s a great way to bond with your family

As mentioned above, you don’t really have to create a scrapbook by yourself. The scrapbook gets to have more meaning if you create it with your loved ones. By doing the activity you’re also making more memories with them. These memories will then be relived every time they see the scrapbook that everybody created.

It’s a really fun activity

If you’re into designing and expressing your creativity then you should definitely give scrapbooking another chance. It’s not only meaningful but is also a source of fun and enjoyment especially if you’re making it with family or friends.

As you can see, there’s more to scrapbooking than meets the eye so definitely give this hobby another chance. It’s a great way to bond with your family and immortalize memories. It’s actually very easy to start this hobby since all you need is some paper, the “memories” you want to be put into the scrapbook and any art materials at home that you think you could use.

We suggest that you make use of a self healing cutting mat when creating your scrapbook. A good cutting mat can help make cutting easier and will also help safe guard your working and table and furniture.

We really hope that through our article you see scrapbooking in a whole new light and try it out with your loved ones.
