National Scrapbook Day is this Saturday, May 7! We published our first scrapbooking book, back in 1996. (We didn’t even call them scrapbooks then, we called them memory albums).
I went into the archives and pulled it out and there’s some great stuff in those first how-to books, like the journaling techniques and some paper piecing ideas. But, one thing I’m glad we don’t do anymore is cutting up our photos! The styles have definitely changed, but all styles have changes in the last 15 years!
Paper Pizazz® was the first line of scrapbooking paper books. Here are some of our first paper books, see what I mean about the styles changing? Our first paper books were all 8 ½”x11” books, we didn’t even come out with 12”x12” until 1998.

a scrapbook shows that you lived.
