International Scrapbooking Industry Day
International Scrapbooking Industry Day is observed next on Monday, March 4th, 2024 (2 days from today).
International Scrapbooking Industry Day is an annual celebration held on March 4. Memories are the most loved, cherished and priceless thing that will bring anyone to the same moment. Without a doubt, all of our memories will still hold a place on the scrapbook. Scrapbooking is a favorite pastime of not only children but also adults. One person will stick photos, artwork, envelopes, letters and other things including ticket stubs, pressed flowers, and more. Every other page of the scrapbook will have a different story revealed.
History of International Scrapbooking Industry Day
Scrapbooks have been had for a long time, and notebooks from past centuries can give us a fascinating insight into the lives of our ancestors. Around the 15th century, the British were able to create what are known as 'common books' out of their favorite letters, quotes, recipes and the like. An ordinary book is a wonderful compilation of knowledge, and it is not uncommon to find them filled with prayers, proverbs, mathematical formulas, and tidbits of information.
Then, in the 16th century, friendship albums began to appear, often containing memorabilia from trips and excursions between friends and family, and often, illustrations or written notes by them. Like modern day yearbooks, the friendship album will be filled with scribbles from the owner's acquaintances.
College women in the early 1900s often used scrapbooks as a way to document their lives. When cameras and photography were unavailable at the time, students would keep their play cards or ticket stubs in their scrapbooks as a snapshot.
Because scrapbooks will become something like journaling, scrapbooks from earlier centuries can provide us with a modern folk insight into what life was like in those days.
How to celebrate International Scrapbooking Industry Day
Scrap booking is a great way to document the things going on in your life in physical form. In the modern age, we rely too much on our memory cards and phones - but having something physical to flip through is certainly much more satisfying. Let go out together and pick up a scrapbook of your own?
You can stick ticket stubs on it, flyers from gigs you've been to, and even tags and labels from beer bottles you think look good or eye-catching magazine pieces.
Maybe even get your whole family involved and create your own family scrapbook together for future generations to see?
Forget all the modern electronic storage devices of today and grab a scrapbook and paste the pictures you took on a trip with family or friends. You can even stick ticket stubs, labels, stickers and more to populate scrapbooks. Decorate your scrapbook in the most beautiful way using all your creative skills. If you are not a scrapbook user, this is the best time to turn your memories into physical form by taking a moment to start pasting your photo and artwork collection. Anyone can create a family scrapbook or a friend scrapbook to preserve every other memory of them with a single book. How about sharing your scrapbook pictures and views on International Scrapbooking Industry Day on social media with using the hashtag #ScrapbookingIndustryDay.
