National Scrapbook Day!

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).

Snip Your Snapshots Book

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.

Free Scrapbook Page Design

My favorite thing about this page, besides the new Batik papers and Batik ribbons, is the quote.

A birth certificate shows you were born, a death certificate shows that you died,

a scrapbook shows that you lived.

This fabulous quote Paulette received from one of our customers. Everyone here at the office loved it once they saw it! So much so that we put together a FREE download with the quote and some extra art–just for you! Just click on the link below to download it!
