A scrapbook is more than a decorated photo album, but different from a photo album because it preserves something more than just the photos. A scrapbook tells the story behind the photos, as well as memorabilia (tickets, certificates, letters, etc.)
Scrapbooking safely preserves your photos and memorabilia. You might have a family album as well as smaller theme albums for vacations, home improvement or a baby’s first year.
Remember those “magnetic” albums? Ten years after carefully placing photos in these albums, people found that the glue had harmed their photos.
By using acid-free and lignin-free papers and adhesives, photos can be preserved beautifully and safely.
Even better, the papers and accessories available now give us lots of creative options for doing more than just filing photos in an album.
