Check out this post on the history of scrapbooking, with a little giveaway!

I have a lovely post about how scrapbooks began in the 19th century.  Come see the actual scrapbook from 1889 that I have posted on SPECIAL PAPER PROJECTS, or click on the page above that says Special Paper Projects.  If you become a follower there, and leave a comment, you will be entered into a sweet little giveaway there which consists of some lovely victorian ephemera and German diecuts.  Two of the pieces will be from that 1889 scrapbook!  The drawing for this will be on Sept. 15th.  Note:  you must become a follower and comment on the post about the history of scrapbooks at SPECIAL PAPER PROJECTS TO BE ENTERED!

It's amazing that a scrapbook has survived so long! Pasting things in a scrapbook was something we did as kids although I have not thought of it as the same as scrapbooking these days. We cut up old Christmas cards, pasted postcards from holidays, bus tickets etc. When spring cleaning recently I found an unused scrapbook with thick grey pages (sturdy for pasting) and a cover with drawn portraits of the 'original' Beatles pop group. Must be 50 yrs old. Wonder if it will last another 50?

I love scrapbooking, and so does Jess. She actually has created some amazing books to look at. Thanks for sharing this.
