I was looking through some of my previously completed school scrap pages in anticipation of my youngest starting school next week. In looking at all the many completed pages I noticed something very important. I was able to take a lot of her assignments, artwork, tests and report cards and include them as part of most of her scrapbooks. What I did was and is the tip of the week.
I had access to a copy machine so I miniaturized many of her school tests, assignments with teacher commentary, artwork and report cards. On some of the layouts I was able to make mini albums right on the pages which included adorable mini versions of her work. It is so great to look back and see her writing, the teachers comments and her overall growth. It is a great way to preserve those special pieces of memorabilia without taking up too much room in your scrapbooks. If you still want to keep the originals you can definitely do that just remember to store them in a safe, cool, dry place as flat as possible.
I hope this tip was helpful.
