Make an Acrylic baby scrapbook album
This Baby scrapbook was made with 5 clear acrylic sheets. All the tags and pages were stamped with pink acrylic paints for plastic - these paints are designed especially to use on plastic and glass surfaces. They dry within 30 mins and then cure within 24hrs. I raided my scrapbook supplies for a couple of scrapbooking pens that would work on the acrylic but in the end I wound up using a sharpie - permanent marker.
The photo mats were machine sewn around the edges to add some dimension to them and they came up great. The mats were lined up and carefully taped to each of the clear pages back to back to prevent the ugly adhesive showing through.

It is a good idea to have a range of good scrapbooking pens for various different surfaces. I have used a black permanent marker for some of the artwork on this album that have been drawn directly on to the clear acrylic pages.

Clear mini albums, permanent scrapbooking pens and plastic paints work really well together. If you don't have access to plastic paint or even glass paints then you can try making your own glass paints with glossy accents.
