is the Scrapbooking Magic Series All About?

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
This simple scrapbook layout makes good use of "off the shelf"
paper and stickers.

the Brian and Barbara Bennett!
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,
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.
Bennett has been writing about Disney vacations and the Disney parks
for almost twelve years. He started his own "Disney Trip Planning
Resource Net" website back in 1996, which featured a very popular
collection of Disney trip reports and lots of Disney trip planning tips.
A few years later, he was was one of the founders of MousePlanet.Com.
He left his job as an engineering manager in the automotive industry
in 2003 to join Barbara in running Mouse Memories. His current responsibilites
include business planning, purchasing, marketing, web site maintenance,
and sleeping (at least until caught).
