Colin and Kara bring home the cutest preschool crafts! The table in my office was stacked full of their handiwork.
I want to include these projects in my children’s school scrapbooks but don’t have time to create a layout for each individual item. What’s my solution? I take individual photos of each project and have them printed as 6×4 photos.
Next I order the photos and insert them into We R Memory Keepers 12×12 3-Ring Photo Sleeve Refills with 6×4 Pocket. The 6×4 photos fit perfectly in the sleeves and do not need to be trimmed at all. Voila, art/craft projects preserved for this year!
For Kara’s first year of preschool, Colin was a baby and Kara still napped so I had more time on my hands. When I did her craft photos for that year, I used Photoshop to put the creation date, what the craft/art project was for and what medium she used. I have a lot less time now that they are 2 and 4 so the photos didn’t get labeled this year.
These photo sleeves go into my children’s school scrapbooks right after the layouts from the same school year. I have used We R Memory Keepers Faux Leather 12×12 3-Ring Binder Album for all my scrapbooks since 2007.
The 3 ring binders come in a large selection of colors. My binders are color coded – Colin’s first year (baby blue), Kara’s first year (pretty pink), family albums (country blue), Kara’s school book (buttercup), Colin’s school book (kiwi). The 3 ring feature allow me to scrapbook out of order, use the pocket photo sleeves and fit 60 layouts into one album! Another great feature is each album comes with a book plate for easy labeling.
What do you do with your children’s art/craft projects?
