Scrapbooking is one of the fastest-growing crafts in the world. Unlike sports or other recreational activities, scrapbooking has no rules; it is a form of creative expression that allows a person to share and preserve his or her experiences and memories in albums that usually consist of photographs, newspaper clippings, and other mementos, in addition to some form of journaling. The advent of personal computers, digital cameras, scanners, printers, and other technology has ushered in the age of digital scrapbooking, with both traditional hobbyists and virtual scrapbookers using such tools to enhance their print and online creations. A variety of general and specialized computer software--such as Microsoft[R] Word, Nova Scrapbook Factory, and Hallmark Scrapbook Studio[R] Deluxe--aids in page design and provides layouts, graphics, and fonts. Programs like Adobe[R] Photoshop[R] Elements let scrapbookers edit and crop their photographs quickly. The Internet, too, has had a tremendous impact, allowing hobbyists to share tips, techniques, layouts, and ideas through bulletin boards, electronic lists, and web sites. For scrapbookers without a home computer, however, the library may be their sole source for accessing the web, printing their photographs, and constructing a scrapbook page. This article offers a list of scrapbooking resources.
