Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
Welcome to our first National Scrapbooking Day event! We have sponsored and collaborated in the past, but decided that year 5 was time for us to host an event! We are keeping it simple, and hosting a week long "Inspired By" challenge. To make it even more fun, some of our industry partners have sponsored our challenge with more prizes!
We are SO grateful to these wonderful companies for being so willing to sponsor our first National Scrapbooking Day challenge! Please be sure to visit and follow these amazing sponsors!
What exactly is National Scrapbooking Day? A quick Google search provides this answer:
Each year on the first Saturday in May, National Scrapbook Day is observed. This day will gather thousands of people all over the country to celebrate with scrapbooking parties and share their talents with others. Scrapbooking dates back to the 15th century.
Scrapbooking is a method for preserving family history, personal mementos, photographs, newspaper clippings, artwork, and other memorabilia.
Journaling is often included to describe the journey or to maintain the story for future generations. Scrapbooking has become a popular hobby and those who enjoy it may develop a strong social network, swapping tools, advice, and techniques. They often gather together at each others’ homes and even join each other at conventions or retreats.
