Getting baby scrapbook ideas is fun! And creating a scrapbook for a baby is an amazing experience. As you go through all the photos they will bring back a lot of fond memories, and now you can create a scrapbook that will help others re-live all the wonderful times you had watching your child grow up.
This scrapbook is going to stay with your all forever, so let’s make it a good one!
Depending on how old your child is now will determine the flow of this book. If your child is is still under a few years old, then this scrapbook should not be completely filled yet, as you may want to add to it later on. If you child is may 10 now, and you want this book to only go up to that age, then feel free to grab as many photos as you can.
If your child grew up with certain colors, then the materials you choose to make for this book should reflect that. It will add a lot of personality to your scrapbook, and set you apart from other people.
Depending on how many pages are in your scrapbook you could dedicate a two-age spread to a certain age of your child. For instance, if you have 10 pages, and this book will be from years 1 to 5 of your child, then the first two pages will be year 1, the next two pages is year 2, and so one. If you have 30+ pages, try to keep the same amount of pages for each year. So if you use 6 pages for year 1, then use 6 pages for years 2, 3 and 4 as well.
Start laying out the materials you want to use on each page. Try to use materials that match the colors you child may have worn growing up, but also colors that match in to the photos as well. If your baby is wearing all green in the photo, try to find a color to use as the background that compliments that green clothing. It will really tie in your book – which is why a mock-up of the whole book is very important before any glue hits the paper.
You can use sticky-tack to adhere the background to the scrapbook, and then sticky-tack again to attach the photos and other embellishments around the page and photos.
Once you are happy with your layouts and colors choices, leave the scrapbook alone for a few days. Come back to your scrapbook after 3 or 4 days to see if you’re still happy with the colors, layout, embellishments, and so on. If you are, great! If not, now is the time to make changes.
I personally like to do this as after a few days you may change your mind. A decision you made in the spur of the moment may not be one you want to keep later on.
Take your scrapbook apart, one page at a time, and put it back together again, this time with some glue!
