Baby Mementos and Accents
Dig out your baby treasured box and in there lay many keepsakes for your baby scrapbook pages.
Any ultrasound pictures, birth announcements, congratulations cards, hospital bracelets, lock of hair, dropped tooth, etc can go into the pockets or act as elements on your baby pages.
For large items like first little outfit, pacifier, play pen, baby cot, favorite toys that cannot fit into the pages, whip out your camera and capture them on photos. Then these photos can slip in nicely into the baby scrapbook pages.
Adorn your baby scrapbook with downloaded images or stickers showing diapers, diaper pins, bibs, booties, teddy bears, storks, rattles, and of course babies. Scattering some favorite cartoon characters throughout the baby scrapbook is another lovely baby design idea. This also serves as a reminder to the grown-up child of his favorites during his baby days.
Limitless possibilities. Let loose and have fun trying these baby layouts ideas!
An exciting baby layout idea is to include touching baby’s birth stories, to introduce your baby to the world. Funny stories, recounts and of course pictures are all interesting things to include in your baby scrapbook album.
Before the birth of my baby niece, her father once dreamed of her becoming a baby genius. Another time, when my sister and bro-in-law were at the doc’s office, my bro-in-law mistakenly pointed to the eye-sockets of my niece showed on the ultrasound and exclaimed excitedly, “Look, my baby has very big eyes!”
Well, all these make nostalgic stories and are amazing baby scrapbooking layout material.
