The dictionary defines a scrapbook as "a blank book in which miscellan- eous items (newspaper clippings or pictures) are collected and preserved”.
Many of you will remember making scrapbooks as children - saving ticket stubs, brochures from holiday destinations, notes and newspaper clippings, special birthday cards or postcards, and pasting them randomly into a sugar-paper album. That was ‘Scrapbooking’ THEN. ‘Scrapbooking’ NOW retains some of those elements, such as preserving precious memories, but focuses on the important elements of safety and longevity, journaling, and creative expression. But don’t be put off - you don’t have to be creative or artistic to enjoy the hobby - you will be amazed at what you can create to enhance and preserve your own family photos.
Are your photos gathering dust in a cupboard ? Or worse still, are they stuck in a standard photo album that is gradually deteriorating with your precious memories ? You might prefer to see them in a scrapbook album illustrated with co-ordinating embellishments and detailed journaling knowing that they will preserved for years to come.
Why not join our Scrapbook Club? The group has been going over 2 years and meets fortnightly in The Cube at the Grammar School on term-time Tuesday evenings between 7:15 & 9:15 pm from May 5th & 19th onwards
Some members have enjoyed tracing their ancestry and producing heritage albums to reflect their findings. You may not have photos of your ancestors, but may still produce an attractive album to pass on to future generations.
We produce albums of family events: births, weddings, proms, childhood, Christmas, summer holidays, first day at school, etc. We make mini-albums and books using specialist equipment. Many members give albums and books as special gifts, along with hand-made cards that we also create.
If you would like to come along to a taster session, or to join us, please contact Shelley French on 01803 855 473. Alternatively, just drop in if you are passing.
