MESA, Ariz., Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In its continuous effort to inspire and educate, Scrapbook.com, a global online retailer and community for crafters, today announced the release of an online historical resource - six months in the making - detailing the history of scrapbooking.
"We embarked on a journey to uncover and tell the story of scrapbooking," explained CMO of Scrapbook.com, Jessica Harrington, "Even we were surprised at what we found. People often think that scrapbooking is a recent phenomenon, but this history is rich and deep and dates back to the 1400s."
As part of the project, Scrapbook.com searched far and wide and acquired a variety of antique scrapbooks, photo albums, cameras, calling cards, and more which they have photographed and added alongside their research to create a visual, readable museum - no tickets or white gloves needed.
The resource includes many unknown, fascinating details about the rise of this hobby and the historical figures who influenced it. Nancy Nally of Scrapbook Update, the Scrapbooking industry's leading news source, and a contributor to the project, said, "This is an immensely valuable, historical resource for the scrapbook community. It's a wonderful tool for enhancing our understanding that what we create is not just a fun diversion, but a historical document that leaves a legacy for future generations."
Scrapbook.com is home to thousands of free classes, tutorials and research-based articles around scrapbooking, crafting, and memory keeping. In line with their mission to make information and inspiration widely accessible, Scrapbook.com does not charge fees to gain access to their educational materials. This resource, like their others, can be accessed at no charge.
Scrapbook.com has plans to continue researching and uncovering the as-now-unknown histories of crafting and personal documentation. It has an assortment of other explorative articles in the works, expected to be released later this year.
Scrapbook.com was founded in 2001 and is now the most-visited paper crafting site and store online. Scrapbook.com is a trusted name and focuses on inspiring its world-wide customers through free classes, projects ideas and crafting supplies available in their award-winning website.
