What Is Scrapbooking?
According to Oxford’s English dictionary, a scrapbook is a notebook with blank pages in which cut-outs, drawings or images can be pasted to preserve them and present them in a more original way. It is a kind of artistic photo album or graphic journal that can be decorated using different techniques, depending on individual preferences, the occasion and the available materials.
