With more and more of our lives being lived on online, scrapbooking has enjoyed a remarkable revival and has become one of South Africa’s most popular hobbies. Rather than an online post or update, it’s a way of creating a physical treasure trove of memories that you can look back on or pass on to the next generation.
A scrapbook is a very personal creation: it’s an expression of your own artistic style, and it’s a record of the things that matter most to you, be they family, friends, pets, recipes or travel (and that’s just a few examples). During your life, a scrapbook is something you can continuously add to as you have new experiences, meet new people and travel to different places.
After you’ve passed, it will become a treasured book of memories for the loved ones you leave behind. No wonder people spend so much time transforming their scrapbooks into beautiful, unique creations.
The joy of scrapbooking comes not just from recording your life and loves, but also from the way that you decorate and embellish your scrapbook. On National Scrapbooking Day – 01 February – over 35 official scrapbooking events will be taking place right across South Africa.
They’re the ideal opportunity to meet fellow scrapbookers in a fun, informal setting. You’ll be inspired by layouts created by other scrapbookers and pick up all sorts of new tips and tricks. You can find details for your nearest event here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/235432480246140/permalink/795412717581444/
