Children can be very artistic and creative, and it’s a great joy for me as a mom to have my son come home from school with presents for me that he made in school, or to spend an afternoon creating some art or doing a craft project together. Overtime, my almost four year old son made an entire bureau full of artwork, and my drawers and shelves and walls were entirely full and covered with what would become the pages of our scrapbook of memories.
I knew I couldn’t save it all, and the value of each was diminished in the pile, so I decided to save only the most significant (the first time he wrote his name, his first family drawing), and take photos of the rest for his scrap book, to save the memory and also save space. It was a great organizing tip I read somewhere, because a collage of photos of his craft projects is a single piece of paper, vs a stack in an already overfull shelf.
I print out the collages I create for my sons’ scrap books at home, so it’s especially wonderful to have a great color printer like the Canon PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer to create vibrant images that really capture the beauty of my son’s creativity and fun, whether I am using photo paper or regular white paper.
This autumn, my son had a great time with crafts- from making a bean tail for his squirrel, to water painting leaves, making leaf wreaths, and much more. He cut and pasted and scrunched and painted and colored and drew, he loved every minute of it, and I captured as much as I could. I created a collage of some of our craft making images, and I printed out with the Canon PIXMA, ready to be hole-punched and added to his growing scrap book of childhood memories.
The Canon PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer can print from almost any gadget, without requiring a computer, such as a smart phone, tablet, or camera, so anytime you have a document, image or recipe you’d like to print out with the beautiful colors or fabulous grayscale range offered by the Canon Pixma, you can, with the PIXMA Cloud app. These images were printed on white printer paper and came out beautifully to me. Here is the printer in action:
Here is the very first photo I printed out with the Canon PIXMA MG7120 Color Photo Printer (I love it, it’s going to be the cover of his new, 4th year scrap book):
