Scrapbooking: Historically a Natural
for National Craft Month
Digital and Die
Cut machines are used for other things besides scrapbooking, but it's estimated
that over 30% of American homes engage in occasional to regular scrapbooking.
In fact, more households keep a scrapbook than play golf. But there's a long
history to this memory preservation.
Since the 1400s -
when paper became more available - personal writing books were kept. And by the
next century, they expanded to become Friendship Albums with memorabilia decorating
the pages. If you were wealthy, an artist added portraits or your coat of arms.
Those books grew to what we presently know as school yearbooks.
in the 1800s - and addition of the Brownie camera - a whole new dimension was
added. Now technology allowed all of us to join the Friendship Album club.
More people started
to preserve their family and everyday history on personal manuscript pages.
Adding comments, names and little souvenirs converted simple photo books to
fascinating journey, tracing scrapbooks from the time of exploring by Columbus
to experimenting with a Creatopia. We voyaged from the early introduction of paper
to lignin free, eyelet embellished archives. That's progress we can appreciate
- and a history we're proud to carry on.
Creatopia - Just
· A multi-component machine made by
· Applies Adhesive backing to items up
to 12" wide and ½" deep, even fabric.
· Laminates items up to 12"wide and ½"
deep - without heat
· Embosses up to 12" wide or 3" borders
with removable embossing rollers
· Cuts a straight or stylish edging -
plus strips - with moveable blades
· Has a 6 ½" die press platform to cut
with leading Diecut shapes
· Environmentally sound and portable
because it is cordless
Creatopia - Now
If you think I'm
exaggerating the above facts, I'm not. This machine is a find for crafters,
schools and business. Many of you heard
the name before, especially if you used their smaller sticker making machines.
But the Creatopia adds so much more.
Just lift the
easily removable components and you go from applying adhesive or laminating to
trimming or embossing. The components
are sold separately, but the basic machine gets you started in all the
directions your creations will need.

Benefit for Kyle Makurat
Craft-e-Corner is looking forward to a benefit on March 20th
from 1 to 11:30 p.m. at La Sure's in Oshkosh, Wisconsin to help out Kyle
Makurat. At the tender age of 13, Kyle
had a heart attack during his gym class. An undiagnosed congenital defect was
the cause. The ongoing medical rehabilitation costs are a lot for any family to
bear. The Butte des Morts Lions Club is generously helping to provide an
opportunity for us to celebrate and contribute to Kyle's recovery.
