National Scrapbooking Month Shines a Light on Craftspeople

Celebration highlights talents of scrapbooking experts and hobbyists as they have fun and share their expertise.

Online PR News – 30-April-2011 – – Cambridge, ON- -Scrapbookers will take an opportunity during the month of May to showcase their talents as they celebrate National Scrapbooking Month.

What was once thought of as a casual hobby has grown to become a popular art form. Today’s scrapbookers helped the industry generate $2.8 billion dollars in sales in 2010. $100 million MORE than they did in 2009! Not bad for a recession.

But, why is scrapbooking so popular? Like many things, it’s hard to understand why so many people devote so much time and energy to it… until you experience it yourself. Scrapbooking provides an immediate creative outlet, as well as the knowledge you’re creating something long-term you can share with your family and future generations.

Another reason for scrapbooking’s popularity is how easy it is to get involved… even if your time is limited. And, with the advent of digital scrapbooking, you don’t need to feel limited by your own artistic abilities.

During the month of May both beginners and hobbyists will benefit from world renowned scrapbooking expert, Andrea Walford of Paper Crafters World. Through articles, tutorials, and how-to videos, Andrea shares her abilities with scrapbooking enthusiasts and helps them create their own one-of-a-kind scrapbooks that are not only places to view photos, but works of art.
