5 Reasons to Try Scrapbooking

Last Updated: 20 April 2021


AD* | Scrapbooking is a great hobby, perfect for beginners and craft aficionados alike! Not only does it give you the option to reminisce on great memories and protect them for many more years to come, but it is also a brilliant outlet for your creativity.

I've recently started giving scrapbooking a go, and so far, I'm loving it. Although I'm still just at the beginning of my scrapbooking journey, I think it's a fantastic hobby and that's why I'm sharing just a few of the reasons why you should try it out!


1. Anyone Can Do It

Young or old, pro or novice, scrapbooking is an inclusive hobby that almost anyone can try. All you need to get started is a scrapbook or journal, some craft materials, photos or designs, and plenty of creativity! There is plenty of inspiration to be found online or in craft books or magazines, or alternatively, why not make it a group activity and start a scrapbooking group with your friends or people in your local area?

2. It's Creative

This may seem like an obvious point, but creativity really is a wonderful thing. Without creativity, we wouldn't have so many of the incredible things we have today, from art and music to films, theatre, architecture, fashion, and so much more. Scrapbooking is an inherently creative pastime and is a great outlet to channel your creativity into - even if you don't consider yourself a creative person, you might just surprise yourself. Scrapbook Designs and themes can be as wacky and wonderful as you like, and with so many great craft bundles and ideas out there, it won't be long before inspiration strikes!


3. It's a Great Way to Preserve Memories

Many scrapbookers (me included!) choose to include special photographs and memorabilia like event tickets in their scrapbooks. This is a great way to keep those precious memories safe while creating a wonderful keepsake to look back on in years to come. Some people choose to create a yearly scrapbook, others make special scrapbooks for significant events like weddings or milestone birthdays, some make scrapbooks to preserve treasured childhood memories, and others still simply include their favourite memories of carefree, fun-filled days.

4. It's Therapeutic 

We all need time to relax, de-stress and unwind, and what better way to do that than through an evening of scrapbooking? Scrapbooking is a great way to relax and let your mind wander as your fingers stay busy putting your scrapbook together. Crafts are often used as a means of helping those suffering from poor mental health, and scrapbooking is certainly a good place to start.


5. Scrapbooks Make Great Gifts!

Last but certainly not least, if you're struggling to find the perfect gift for that special someone, why not make them their very own personalised scrapbook? Whether it's a gift for a milestone birthday or a special event like a wedding or important anniversary, get creative, crack out the photos, and start crafting a bespoke gift they're sure to love!

Of course, these are just a few reasons, but there are many more I could have chosen! I'm looking forward to keeping up with my newfound hobby and hopefully, I will have many more exciting scrapbooking projects to share with you soon!
