What is scrapbooking anyway and where does it come from?
Scrapbooking has its origins in the USA and Canada and is a hobby. A photo album is created, but with stickers and small texts it becomes something very individual. Tickets for special events are also pasted in and provided with texts or stickers, as well as photos and other important and extraordinary things. Furthermore, a scrapbook is limited to the most important pictures and does not serve to create a collection of all children's pictures. One could also say that a scrapbook is a photo album with for example the most important life events, which has been creatively and individually enhanced. Of course there are no limits to the imagination.

Because it's actually super easy and with some templates the creativity in scrapbooking comes all by itself.
