Scrapbooking, Genealogy & a Sneak Peek


It’s National Genealogy Day, so we thought it was a great time to share a little bit about scrapbooking and brag books! Since Oliver’s birth, Sara has been doing loads of scrapbooking to preserve every memory she can!

How about a little sneak peek of something she created just for the next issue of our popular Crafter’s Inspiration magazine?

We asked Sara about why she loves scrapbooking, and she shared this with us:

“I think that in a world where everything’s always rushing by you, where you’re worrying about bills and stresses of work and home life, people are wanting to take a step back and appreciate what matters most – the people close to us. This is where scrapbooking and memory albums come into their own and the reason why they’re so popular. It gives people a chance to sit down, look through photos of happy times and reminisce. It’s also crucial to document life events as they will become keepsakes that you can pass down through the generations, so they can learn how their ancestors lived, who they were, what they did and so on – it becomes part of their own personal history.”

Whether you’re just getting started in scrapbooking or are a long-time fan, we’ve put together a few amazing offers as part of our Birthday Week specials to help you stock up! According to Sara, a large array of 12″x12″ cardstock is a “staple” item, as are loads of embellishments like ribbons, gems, buttons, and haberdashery-style items!

With FREE standard UK P&P and double Loyalty Points all weekend, it’s a great time to treat yourself to a few new things!

And to help keep your pages together, take a look at our range of Xyron products. Crafters will able to easily apply adhesive to photos and various other elements ready to add to your layouts.
