Sahlin Studio-Yearly Snapshots 2017

Hello! I am back with you today to share a yearly family memory keeping tradition.  At the beginning of every year I like to document where my kids are in life.  I like to record their interests and favorite foods along with a photo and a handprint.  I love that years from now I can look back and have a quick  yearly snapshot of each of my kids.

Because I have four busy boys I like to make this process as streamlined as possible.  Digital to the rescue!  By using digital templates I am able to quickly enter the information for each boy and slide in an adorable photo.

For the handprint I used card stock and adhered it to the opposite side of the photo.  This year I decided to add a little dimension to each layout by combining the digital word stamps with letters stickers for each boys name.  The boys placed their handprint on the center of the paper using acrylic paint.  This is “hands down” my favorite part of the project.  I love seeing their little handprints grow over the years!

On the front of each photo I added a star brad and a little, white word strip to add just a little more dimension.  I always like to add a little something to my digital projects to make it feel a little more handmade.

There it is, another year in the books!  I place these snapshots in the front of my project life album right behind the yearly title page.  Year after year I adore this project, I adore the memories and the moments captured.  It is never too late to start!  Give this a try in your next album.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
