Are you ready for National Scrapbook Day?

I love history and trivia, so I thought I would share some of what I learned about National Scrapbook Day from the National Day Calendar website.  Just in case you don't know what scrapbooking is, it is a method of preserving personal and family history in the form of a scrapbook.  Did you know that scrapbooking dates back all the way to the 15th Century?!

 Today, scrapbooking is a hobby where people preserve memories, but it also provides a strong social network.  People who enjoy scrapbooking as a hobby, also known as "scrappers," typically include photographs, printed media, journaling and artwork on their scrapbook pages.  And they enjoy getting together with friends, family and fellow scrappers to share tips and ideas as well as to socialize.   

Each year, thousands of people get together all over the United States to celebrate National Scrapbook Day!  The "unofficial" holiday is always the first Saturday in May and was started in 1994 by the company Creative Memories.  

Did you know that Stampin' Up! has it's own memory keeping line of products?  Yes, indeed!  Stampin' Up! partnered with Becky Higgins, who created Project Life, just over a year ago to bring you Project Life by Stampin' Up! 

Project Life is a super simple, no-brainer solution to traditional scrapbooking!  Using Photo Pocket Pages, you insert your pictures and card collections as well as coordinating accessories and stamps that help tell the story of you and your families' adventures.  

You will find ALL of our Project Life by Stampin' Up! products in my Online StoreAnd guess what?  Some of them are 50% off!  Yes, you read that right.  Get yours before they're all gone!

I'll be celebrating National Scrapbook Day with some of my crafty friends this Saturday here in my Craft Room.  Will you be celebrating it too?  If yes, please share with me in the Comments section below what you'll be doing for National Scrapbook Day.  I'd love to hear about it!

Until next time, happy crafting!
