Big Book of BooBoos Creation

I have a 4-year-old monster for those of you that this is your first time reading my blog, monster is used in affectionate way! It still doesn’t change the fact that she is a little monster! Disney has come out with a show called Doc McStuffins and it’s a show all about how a little girl helps fix stuffed animals. Now what little girl would not want to watch this show and be Doc McStuffins. I have to admit that I even like this show and that Stuffy (the little blue dragon) is my favorite character. Here is a video of Doc McStuffins just in case your were curious!!

Of course me being a crafty being and not able to find a Big Book of BooBoos I decided to create one! Go MOM. So the supplies that you need to create this book are a crop a dile, some card stock, some notebook paper, and a heart cutter or heart punch.

I cut two pieces of cardstock down to be 8×9 and I also cut 10 sheets of notebook paper to be 8×9. Then I took my crop a dile and punched out four holes in the 3/16th size. I set my eyelets using the crop a dile and used my creative memories cutting system to cut out a big heart to put on the front of the book. Before I knew it I had a big book of BooBoos and a very happy little girl!

P.S. I also traced a Hallie on the first page of her book because my little girl loves Hallie (Hallie is the hippo in the show!) :)

Memorabilia Storage

There are many ways to store memorabilia. I personally have mine in a file cabinet that has all the things that I felt have been worthy of saving my children’s school years. A friend of mine shared this tip with me over the weekend and I thought it was a lovely idea. You can get crates for cheap at amazon.

Then all you need is 12 hanging file folders. I would use the 12×12 size ones as sometimes your young ones have larger pieces of paper that you would like to keep. I personally like these.

Label them from kindergarten to 12th grade and you are good to go. I would probably start this at the preschool age because the kids tend to make really cute stuff in preschool as well!  I think that I am going to do this for my two monsters and put them in an area of the house that can be easily accessible. I don’t generally put school memorabilia in my scrapbooks because there tends to be too much stuff during the year that comes home especially when the kids are in elementary school. Plus my yearly albums are already packed with layouts from our year! I do put memorabilia from trips that we have gone on throughout the year in our yearly album so this idea would only be used for their school stuff.

How do you keep your memorabilia from your kids schools?
