With all the cutting, gluing and coloring going on, scrapbooking sometimes feels reminiscent of kindergarten. So it’s natural for the kids to be drawn to the dining room table when you’re working on your albums. What a golden opportunity to have fun with your children or grandchildren and get them in the habit of preserving their memories. Here are some products just for them:
- Each three-pack costs $6.99. Now who will be invading whose scrapping supplies? For more information, visit crafts.fiskars.com.
- For young journalers, making a journal can be just as fun as writing in it. Reynolds’ journal and locking diary craft kits let your kid do just that. Each one comes with a blank book and everything a child needs to decorate it: foil papers, holographic stickers, adhesive, a gel pen and an idea booklet. Look for the kits at craft stores or find out more at www.reynoldscrafts.com.
- Bright, funky and playful—that’s the best way to describe Colorbök’s new 2 Grrrrrls line of scrapbooking products. Girls and teens will love the colorful, boldly patterned papers, stickers and die-cut frames, like the ones used for the page above. There are also craft punches, decorated albums and scrapbooking kits. Prices range from about 30 cents (for a sheet of paper) to $24 (for an album). For more information, visit www.2grrrls.com.
- No matter what your family’s heritage, your children can find stickers that look like them.
