Scrapblog, a startup that lets you build rich Flash-based online scrapbooks, has raised $2.5 million in series B funding from Disney’s Steamboat Ventures. The startup had previously raised $7.5 million from Longworth Venture Partners and Steamboat Ventures.
Scrapblog offers an online editor that allows users to decorate their scrapbook with text, images, colorful themes, and other embellishments, which can then be shared on the web or printed out. The startup also launched a new QuickMix tool to allow users to make simple scrapbooks on the fly. Scrapblog recently brought on a new CEO, Jill Braff, to lead the company after startup’s founder and CEO Carlos Garcia, stepped aside. Braff most recently led worldwide publishing efforts including licensing, marketing and sales as SVP of global publishing at Glu Mobile.
The company was first introduced back in 2006, briefly went offline, and relaunched in March 2007. The site has grown to over 2 million registered users who have created over 4.4 million Scrapblog pages.
