How have you marked the growth of your kids or grandkids in your scrapbooks? Do you take photos that mark those “baby’s firsts?” Or perhaps you document and journal about changes in height, birthdays and developing hobbies ? Blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu let her young kids get hands on (literally!) with this adorable baby scrapbook layout, turning their handprints into elephants! Talk about creativity!
As a mother of two boys, one of my happiest moments is when I see our kids flip the pages of album and ask me about the event being talked about. Of all the pages they have looked at, the one they like the most is the one with their handprints on it — they love comparing their handprints and seeing how little they were.
Why don’t you stamp your little one’s tiny little handprints now, as children grow up so fast!
To create this layout you will need:
- Little Dreamer Tone-on-Tone Paper Pack or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Little Dreamer Variety Mat Pack or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Little Dreamer Foiled Embellishments or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Little Dreamer Stickers or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- White Solid Cardstock or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Clouds Border Maker Cartridge or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Alphabet Stamp Kit System or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- 12-inch Trimmer or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- All-Purpose Scissors or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Repositionable Tape Runner or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Black Dual-Tip Pen or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Foam Squares or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
Step 1: Use the charcoal patterned paper as the base.
Step 2: Using the Clouds Border Maker Cartridge, punch all the sides of the stars patterned paper. Trim the pointy corners along the curve. Adhere it to the base.
Step 3: Using the ink pad of the Alphabet Stamp Kit System, stamp handprints on White Solid Cardstock. Draw an elephant with the Black Dual-Tip Pen and cut out the elephants using the All-Purpose Scissors. Adhere the two elephants to the base.
Step 4: Cut a piece of the charcoal patterned paper to measure 4-3/4″ x 6-3/4″ and mount a 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ mat. Adhere to the base.
Step 5: Adhere stickers and embellishments, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.
