Scrapbooking Captures Life's Moments for Lasting Memories

Life's pace moves so rapidly. One moment your precious bundle-of-joy delights at the discovery of his or her toes, then in a flash they are taking their first tentative steps, learning to talk, and using the big potty.

Then your baby is ready for that first day of kindergarten. As you blink back tears and the world comes into focus again, you're holding onto the dashboard for dear life as your son (who is a foot taller than you now) demonstrates that he needs a few more driving lessons before getting his driver's license!

All too soon, it will be time for graduation and wedding gowns.

Then before you know it, your babies are ready to have babies of their own.
A photograph can freeze a moment in time for a lasting memory.

Scrapbooking can keep those frozen memories alive, those precious life moments you want to always remember.

Scrapbooking has revolutionized the ways in which we can immortalize moments we don't want to forget.

Everything you need to start scrapbooking!
Making Memories Tool Kit, Pink

The materials available today for scrapbooking allows you to transform photographs and other sentimental items into vibrant testimonials of the precious life moments you will carry in your heart forever.

Years from now you will still be able to experience the feelings you felt as this moment in time came to be.

Baby imprint, handprint, and footprint kits provide you with the materials needed to make a lasting tribute to the blessing that the birth of your child has brought to your life, and as a record of the changes that will happen so fast as your baby grows.

As you hold your baby's small hand in yours, or marvel at their tiny feet, your heart swells with a depth of love like nothing else ever experienced in this world.

A part of you wishes that this moment could last forever, even as you know your child will grow and change every day. You cannot stop life from moving forward, but you can make a lasting impression of this moment with a baby imprint kit.

You can make ink impressions of your baby's hands and feet and either display them in decorative frames throughout your home, or put them into scrapbooks you create especially to hold the precious memories of your little one.

When your children have all grown up-let them take these special mementos with them to remember how much you love them as they go off on their own.

Baby handprint and footprint kits using plaster will allow you to make a cast of your childs hand or foot to document those moments you want to remember.

You will be amazed that your childs feet were ever that teeny-tiny. You can purchase baby handprint and footprint kits that include special frames to display the casts of your little ones hands and feet, or just hang them on a wall.

To create a treasure your child will cherish for years to come: use these ink and plaster baby handprint and footprint kits to make impressions of your baby's growing hands and feet and hang them in chronological order on a wall in your child's room.

Use the plaster baby handprint and footprint kits to make impressions your child can touch. And consider using the ink handprint and footprint kits to make impressions you can display to mark special milestones in your babys life as he or she grows.

Then every time your child looks at the imprints displayed on the wall, they will know how much you love them and how important the memories of these moments are to you.
