Where and when did scrapbooking start?
Scrapbooks, as we know them today, started many centuries ago, in the form of Common place books, friendship albums, Grangerbooks, photo albums, journals, diaries, scrapbooks, and now web home pages. Commonplace books began in the 17th century. People wrote poems, quotes, pasted newspaper articles, or shared hobbies like knitting in their books. Some of these books were purchased but many were handmade, using wall covering for the cover. Granger books were printed books with blank pages in the back for personalizing. William Granger invented these books and also published a manual on how to do it. The most interesting to me is the friendship album. These little books included quotes, poems, thoughts, and hair weaving of a person. Hair weaving was a common thing in Germany in the 17th century. Girls would collect hair from all the friends and weave them into intricate designs including ribbon and pressed flowers, with a remembrance about that person. Did you know that Mark Twain was an avid scrapbooker?? He dedicated Sundays to enjoy his hobby and had 57 different scrapbooks that he sold through Montgomery Ward catalog. The peak decade for scrapbooking was 1880-1890. Magazines of the times included articles on what to include in your scrapbooks. Journals and diaries were very popular in the 1920's through the present, mainly kept by young girls. They included their inner most thoughts and desires. Scrapbooks began to decline around 1940, when the popularity of personal photos and photo albums rose. It wasn�t till around 1975 that scrapbooks began to get popular again with people wanting to know their "ROOTS". Genealogy helped scrapbooking gain popularity again with finding out family history and wanting to make a book on that history. Scrapbooking today comes in many forms. Traditional books, computer scrapbooks and family web pages. We even have one for our family and our wedding. Scrapbooking a fad?? I don�t think so. It has been around for centuries. The popularity comes and goes, but one thing is for sure, scrapbooking is for all generations! Remember that when you're scrapbooking, and think of whom in the future will see your book and how will they scrapbook?! Alternative view The current trend of scrapbooking is usually traced back to the "commonplace books" of the 15th century. Once common people had easy access to paper, they started collecting their favorite quotes, recipes, etc. In the Victorian period, people started adding ephemera to their books, such as greeting cards and advertisements.

Because it's a hobby for most people that choose to scrapbook. It's a very creative way of displaying those memorable pictures that would otherwise be sitting in a box u…p in the attic.
To get started with a scrapbook, you will need some basic items. The scrapbook album will be one of the first. You will also need adhesives, pages and page protectors, sticker…s or other embellishments, markers, and your photos. Other items can be used but these would be the basic items needed to get started.
Wide topic... you can make a scrapbook of anything. For example, I am a nanny and every summer I make a scrapbook of all the fun things we did so the boy can show everyone at …school. (He is special needs and doesn't speak much.) We go to Joann's / Hobby Lobby or some kind of craft store and buy a scrapbook. We get 12x12 because stores sell the most styles of paper in 12x12. each book contains about 24 pages (12 front and back.) Some books come with page protectors...recommended. First you decide what you want in your book. ours is fun stuff so we picked up paper that had circus decor, basketball decor, etc. There is usually a row or two in any craft store of scrapbooking paper. Next, I imagine what I want each page to look like and which pictures I have taken that will go good with my ideas. i then pick our stickers and cut outs to glue on to the paper. The sky is your limit with creativity. i suggest googling pictures or ideas of scrapbooking to get a good look at the ideas some people have. P.S. this is an expensive hobby. Good luck!

Well personally for myself, I enjoy the "scrapbooking" part as it relaxes yourself. It is more authentic to actually make a scrapbook - hands on, rather than the digital ones …and you get more pleasure out of it. Scrapbooks can be used to display photos and represents life stories, for example making a scrapbook of your child's birthdays in chronological order. For myself, i even used a scrapbook to make a "poetry anthology" for an English assignment and received great marks for that. Scrapbooking is a great way to display anything on paper (or PC if digital scrapbooking) and the outcomes are always highly effective!
