“Our name change to Creative Scrapbooker reflects the importance of our social media identity. We feel this is the right time to re-brand and grow,” says Katharina Doyle.
Canadian Scrapbooker was created in 2005 and has become an innovative global leader in the paper crafting industry. The magazine was the dream of two women in Alberta, who set out to give Canadian paper crafters a voice.
