Founded in 2007 by Vera Raposa, ScrapVenture taught scrapbookers how to profit from
their scrapbooking passion. The family of websites acted as a business center,
providing articles, reports and e-courses to scrapbook business owners.

"I wanted to show women how to follow their passion and make an income that would
help support their family," said Raposa.

Originally the site cast a broad net-offering resources for online stores, brick and
mortar store, kit clubs, scrapbook forums and custom scrapbook artists.

"The end goal is exactly the same," notes Stegall. "We help women make a career out
of their hobby. The change in direction is additional resources for the online
entrepreneur specifically. We are increasing the frequency of content, information
and one-on-one attention, with an emphasis on online marketing."

The trio of authority websites includes Scrap Venture Reports which offers detailed,
industry specific reports; Scrap Venture Coaching, a virtual one-on-one coaching
option; and the flagship product, Scrap Venture Pro which is a complete, year-long
resource for the scrapbook business owner. All three product lines are being
strengthened and supplemented with new content, data and research.

"The online scrapbook business owner now has a place to gain hands-on knowledge,
individualized coaching and valuable research in order to assist them in their
business venture," said Stegall. "Look for even more dynamic information products,
reports and insight into the online scrapbooking business."
