Are you looking for a new creative outlet or a way to preserve memories? Scrapbooking might be a great hobby for you, and you certainly wouldn’t be alone. The Craft and Hobby Association reported in its 2010 Industry Statistics report that 18.4 million households participate in scrapbooking, and the popularity of scrapbooking continues to grow.

With today’s archival-quality supplies, scrapbook pages have the ability to last generations. Today’s scrapbooks are not just for photos either. Many are used for art and memorabilia preservation. The growing interest in DIY and handcrafting projects is also helping the hobby to reach younger generations, with beginner scrapbooking sets available even for tweens and children.   

Not ready to try it on your own? Classes, workshops and all-in-one album kits make it easy to jump in. Helpful online sources, such as www.spottedcanary.com, offer inspiration and instruction across a bevy of crafting interests. If you don’t see yourself as a hobbyist, beware. Those who do become involved often become passionate about the hobby. A Volt Marketing study found that 78 percent of scrapbookers have space in their home dedicated to the craft.

“We subscribe to three tenets central to our business: Inspiration, Education and Innovation,” says Kevin Fick, EKSuccess Brands president. “We promise to continue to provide consumers with new and innovative ways to express their creativity through the power of crafts.”
