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.

With photography 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 scrapbooks.

It's a 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 by Xyron

Creatopia - Just the Facts:
A multi-component machine made by Xyron
Applies Adhesive backing to items up to 12" wide and " deep, even fabric.
Laminates items up to 12"wide and " 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 " die press platform to cut with leading Diecut shapes
Environmentally sound and portable because it is cordless
Creatopia - Now the discussion:
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.
If you have questions or would like to help out, go to http://www.thewolf.fm/paws_for_cause.php or email the planning committee at makuratbenefit@yahoo.com.
