When my kids come home from school with their beautiful artwork we have a special place where we hang it for a while, but when it comes down rather than keeping all of their artwork from each year of school, I take a photo of it and scrapbook it.
Most of the time I create a single layout for each year with photos of all of their artwork for that year, but once in a while something special comes along that deserves its own page. For example, my daughter created a poster for a contest at school last year and won 1st place. She was so excited!
Supplies: textured cardstock, patterned paper, embossed stickers, chipboard tags, corner mounter tool, rotary cutting tool and scallop blade (We R Memory Keepers); felt tip pen (Sharpie); machine stitching
I wanted this special piece of art to have its own page, but I didn’t want to use adhesive so that we could remove it from the layout if needed. My solution? Create corner slits to mount my daughter’s artwork.
Now we can safely remove the artwork and show grandparents, cousins, and friends without worrying about adhesive ruining it. I hope these ideas have provided you with some solutions to scrapbook your kids’ or grandkids’ artwork. ~ Aly Dosdal
