The pleasure of scrapbooking

The pleasure of scrapbooking

Over the summer holidays, our designer Lauren rekindled an old naughties love of hers—scrapbooking. As a self-confessed hoarder, she keeps everything from travelling tickets to restaurant menus. Many of us collect various materials over the years, but how often do you stop to sift back through your pile? Re-read heartfelt cards, recall everyday yet formative journeys and relive a meaningful moment? There is much pleasure to be had in the compilation of memorabilia. Scrapbooking pages also make great invites, collated recipe books, or picture boards for events like weddings and birthdays. Let’s bring scrapbooking back.
