What Is National Scrapbooking Day? When Is It?

National Scrapbooking Day


When? SATURDAY 6th MAY 2017


Where? ANYWHERE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SCRAP

This Saturday, 6th May 2017 is National Scrapbooking Day, also referred to a International Scrapbooking… the one day of the year where we have a dedicated day on the calendar for our wonderful, memory-filled, photo-fueled hobby!!

For those who are not familiar with the term ‘National Scrapbooking Day’ I have just looked it up on National Day Calendar and here is what they have to say:

NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY
Each year on the first Saturday in May, National Scrapbook Day is observed. Also known as National Scrapbooking Day, this day will gather thousands of people all over the country to celebrate with scrapbooking parties and share their talents with others. Scrapbooking dates back to the 15th century.

Scrapbooking is a method for preserving family history, personal momentoes, photographs, newspaper clippings, artwork and other memorabilia.

Journaling is often included to describe the journey or to maintain the story for future generations. Scrapbooking has become a popular hobby and those who enjoy it may develop a strong social network, swapping tools, advice and techniques. They often gather together at each others’ homes and even join each other at conventions or retreats.

HOW TO OBSERVE
Use #NationalScrapbookDay to post on social media.

HISTORY
According to our research, National Scrapbook Day was started in 1994 by the scrapbook company, Creative Memories.

I think it’s great that this day exists and even better that the first ever crafty crop I will be attending falls on National Scrapbooking Day. I have wanted to attend a crop or retreat for a number of years but could never find anything suitable in either distance, price or to suit my health problems.

I’m so thankful to have found out about Crop Central as it fits into all three of my criteria and I have already chatted with some lovely people who will be attending.

I hope you all have a wonderful National Scrapbooking Day whether you are crafting alone, with friends, at a crop or even an online retreat. I will be sharing my #NationalScrapbookingDay makes with you soon, and would love to see what you’ve all been making!!
