Preserving treasured moments with All About Scrapbooking

Filipinos are known for being sentimental and family-centric community. We tend to collect memorabilia and pictures of different occasions and places with our families and friends, and in the age of modern technology just uploaded it in social networks like Facebook, Multiply and Flick’r, its simple and not that creative like those in photo albums that our mom, tita and lola’s did before.

With the help of Filstar Distribors Corporation, the one who distributed the famous Hallmark cards, BIC pens and writing product and All About Scrapbooking thought us on how can be more creative and fun in remembering and preserving special moments and occasions in our lives. Ms. Carmel Joan Carpio shared the basic of scrapbooking in their Filstar Office in Pasig City last Sunday (March 20) and encouraged us to explore though imagination while having fun with designing our own pages with all the accessories and papers that they provided us. Here’s the video of Ms. Carpio discussing the basic and materials use for scrapbooking:

I’m not that good yet with scrapbooking, but maybe soon I can pull those creative juices inside me to create more designs for my pages. But aside from being creative, the wonderful thing with scrapbooking it serves as a therapy for those who wanted to be relaxed and cherish special moments. All About Scrapbooking conducts school and mall events to encourage shoppers and students the to take part on the creative way of story telling about their lives and memorable experiences with their friends and family. Filstar Distribors Corp., products are available in National Bookstore nationwide.

Honestly, going back to basic like collecting pictures for photo albums and scrapbooks, reading greeting cards and writing letters is really fun and we appreciate more things that were usually given to us instantly by the digital space. Having time for this kind of activities will not kill us instead it helps us to explore the sentimental and creative side of our selves, like writing a Hallmark greeting cards for our families and friends, aside from sending your thoughts to them part of the purchase will be donated to L.I.F.E.
