Scrapbooking history has its roots in England. In the 15th century, commonplace books and the friendship album became popular. Letters, poems, recipes, scrapbook quotes and similar items were kept in the commonplace books.
According to scrapbooking history, people wanted a way to preserve "scraps" that were important to them. Scraps included love letters, greeting cards, business cards, poems and other paper items of importance or sentimental value. Interestingly, embellishments were added to the pages.
According to the Hobby and Craft Association, the trade association for the craft industry, scrapbooking is now a US$2.5 Billion industry that is showing no signs of slowing growth. There are now over 3,000 scrapbooking stores nationwide in the United States, serving 25 million scrapbookers.
