The importance of memories
Whether you are an amateur scrapbooker or a dyed-in-the-wool scrapbook designer, you are drawn to scrapbooking because you understand the importance of capturing memories. The moment that two people join their lives together warrants documentation, as it is one of the many highlights of life. Capturing it through photography is essential, but placing those photos in an environment that fits the theme of the day allows for the event to be relived over and over again with each turn of the page.
The right design and detail creates a vivacious and visceral realism to memories that cannot be created through smartphones and photos alone. The scrapbook allows for a tactical recollection of that special day.
Because of the value of scrapbooking, the people who do it have created a community where they share ideas, themes, and techniques to recreate that special day. Sharing ideas has resulted in phenomenal representations of events to the extent that a viewer can imagine being there.
An avid scrapbooker has a cabinet supplied with an amazing assortment of tools to create intricate scrapbook designs. If this is not you, don't worry. We have solutions for those who don't have access to the entire arsenal of tools available. This site is meant to educate all levels of scrapbookers in an activity which we all feel is important in order to create lasting memories.
