Creating baby book Scrapbooking Memories

Mar 5, 2008
Baby book scrapbooking is simple and fun - plus, it's a great way to keep the memories of your child safely stowed away and organized for years to come. What are the basic steps for creating that perfect baby book?

1. Start with a good selection of photos - the pictures you include in your baby book are the most important feature, so only choose the best (and cutest) shots from your collection. One way to approach baby book scrapbooking is chronologically. Start with photos of your pregnancy, and then add pictures from every stage of the baby's life.

2. The opening page can simply be a short introduction which includes information such as the baby's name, date of birth, as well as the place of his birth.

3. On the pregnancy pages, try to capture the thoughts and feelings you felt while waiting for your baby to arrive. Journal about the anticipation and excitement you felt, as well as your nerves and any other tidbit you find compelling enough to include at the beginning of the baby book. Here you can place sonogram pictures and leave heartfelt and humorous comments regarding food cravings you may have experienced, and other interesting anecdotes. Pictures of your growing tummy also make a good addition to this section of the book.

4. Next, you will want to set aside several pages for baby shower pictures. If you had a couple of different pictures, then you will want to dedicate several pages to this section. Include in your scrapbook a list of any gifts you received. A pocket makes a great place to stash all of the beautiful cards you have received.

5. The next section should be your baby's first day at home. This page can also include any hospital pictures, as well as his coming home pictures. A great addition to these pages would be a journaling page on the baby's birth statistics, such as his time of birth, length and weight. A great keepsake in the book would be the hospital bracelets.

6 You will also want to set aside a few pages dedicated solely to journaling. This will give you the opportunity to record all of your emotions and feelings throughout the entire experience. This will help you to remember these feelings and thoughts in years to come. This will also give you the opportunity to cherish the simple moments that made the experience so rewarding and exciting.
