Celebrate National Scrapbook Day

April 20, 2012 by  

A National Scrapbook Day event will be held at the Maryland Presbyterian Church in Towson on May 21 from 9 am-5 pm. Tickets are $30 for the entire day which includes breakfast and lunch or $15 for a half-day including breakfast; every person attending will receive a free gift.

The event is sponsored by Creative Memories and will feature new scrapbooking products, new ideas for scrapbook layouts and accessories and gifts suitable for those interested in scrapbooking. There will also be four prize drawings throughout the day.

National Scrapbook Day is observed on the first Saturday in May. Those interested in the art of scrapbooking all over the United States take part in crops, go shopping for supplies and take workshops to learn new scrapbooking techniques.

Many people, mostly women, are very interested in the art of scrapbooking. They use scrapbooking techniques to highlight events that have happened in their lives or in their children’s lives. Those scrapbooks can be as simple or as ornate as the person making them wants them to be. They use photographs, stationery and elements such as buttons and stamps in order to create these books. Towson stationery printers often provide fine papers which scrapbookers use to make the words printed in their books stand out and to make a strong statement. Basically, a scrapbook is only limited by the creativity of the person who creates it. Events such as crops, where a group gathers to create scrapbook pages together, help introduce them to new techniques and products.
