There are several ways you can record your child's handprint in their scrapbook. One way is to use an archival ink pad. If you don't want to spend the money on one, try this alternative. Use your pigma ink pen that you would normally use for journaling. Scribble the ink on wax paper, or any other coated surface. Working fast, mix in a few drops of water, place your child's hand in the resulting wet ink and then stamp the child's hand onto a piece of cardstock. You could stamp right into your kids scrapbooking album, but this way makes it easier to fix a mistake. Be warned, pigma ink is hard to wash off skin and nearly impossible to wash out of fabric so make sure surfaces are protected appropriately.
