Memories for the scrap (19 Oct 2005)
The scrapbooks themselves are a bit like photo-albums. The aim is to make every page a work of art - something that draws on skills in page layout, typography and graphic design.
"There are certain things to bear in mind - the rule of thirds, focal points on a page and colour co-ordination."
Embellishments are also big, and there's no limit to what can be added, from clay mouldings to beads, ribbons and ornamental metal lettering. Scrapbooking companies are always dreaming up fresh themes and paraphernalia to drive the market.
