What is the Scrapbooking Magic Series All About?

We all take pictures. In this digital age we all take tons of pictures. Why? Because we want to remember a snapshot in time that was important to us. Yet for many people, those pictures that were developed or printed end up in a box where they are rarely seen. The digital pictures end up on a CD or published on the web somewhere. Scrapbooking is about telling a story, both for us to remember, and for future generations to enjoy. More than likely you've heard about scrapbooking. Several years ago, scrapbooking meant taping clippings from the local newspaper into a ring binder to memorialize our kid's efforts in the big game. To some, scrapbooking was even simpler... it meant placing photographs into a sleeved album to look at later. At least those pictures were not tucked in a box somewhere, never to be seen again until someone settling an estate found them in an old box. Of course, in the last few years scrapbooking has taken many leaps forward. It's almost impossible now to go to a store and not see some scrapbooking supplies for sale. They can be found in all sorts of different stores, and on many, many websites.

If you've been curious about this "new wave" of scrapbooking, you'll enjoy this series of articles. We're going to start with the history of scrapbooking, and then take you through the kinds of tools and supplies that are available. We'll teach you how to get started if you're thinking about taking the plunge into this great hobby. We'll show you that scrapbooks can (and should) really be fun to produce. Since we specialize in Disney scrapbooking ourselves, we'll do all of that with a Disney twist that just might convince you to try scrapbooking your photos. Already a scrapbooker? As we go forward we'll work our way through lots of tips and techniques that you'll enjoy as well. If you're like most of us, you've got boxfuls of photographs from all of your Disney trips -- not to mention holidays, birthday parties, family get-togethers, and so on that you can turn into wonderful memory albums that you'll be able to enjoy for the rest of your life before passing them on to your family or friends.

About Barbara

Mouse Memories' Founder and Co-Owner Barbara Bennett was introduced to the hobby of scrapbooking several years ago and immediately loved it! She began creating memory albums for her own family and especially their family vacations. As Disney fans, the Bennetts traveled to Walt Disney World frequently, taking many pictures on each trip. It quickly became a challenge to find the perfect products to make even MORE Disney pages without repeating previous ideas. At the time, there were lots of Disney scrapbooking products available on the market, but it was difficult to find more than a few in any one place. Mouse Memories was founded in the Fall of 2000 to bring them all together into a one-stop shopping place for all those great Disney products! Mouse Memories is now one of the leading retailers of Disney-licensed and inspired scrapbooking products in the world. If you're trying to design a Disney page and need something special, www.MouseMemories.com is the place to find it! Mouse Memories has expanded and now also has a great selection of sports, vacation, family, pets, Boy and Girl Scouts, Nascar, and other scrapbooking products. Top notch guest service is our hallmark. By providing a huge product selection, great communication, and the very best in delivery, Mouse Memories is well known for its' top notch customer service. Our warehouse, located just a few blocks from downtown Kissimmee (about a twenty minute drive from Walt Disney World), has over 7,500 unique products and is now open on a regular basis for walk-in guests to visit and shop.
