Creating Your Own Beautiful “I’m Pregnant Scrapbook Page!”

If you’ve ever said to yourself ” Help! I’m pregnant scrapbook ideas please” then relax, we’ve got you totally covered with todays step-by-step pregnancy layout ideas tutorial!

Being pregnant can be a mix of emotions and feelings. One minute sheer excitement the next, complete overwhelm with nausea and fatigue. One wonderful way to capture just the beautiful aspects of being pregnant is with your own layout.

For my scrapbooking pregnant belly page layout, I wanted to make a play with different photo edits on a single photo. And, making use of these photos in different photo edits as the subject for my layout. It is a way to encapsulate and emphasize the joy of motherhood with a beautiful baby belly. The layout is created with a lot of feminine vibes and frills here and there.

Distressing techniques also came into play to make the number of photos of the baby belly really come into focus. For frills, two photos are bordered with laces and the whole layout is adorned with strings of pearls and twine.

The technique of using different photo edits requires discerning which photo edit would look fabulous. For my layout, I utilized black and white for the 2 photos of the baby belly, a sepia in soft focus for another photo of my subject and the other photo of my subject in natural color editing.
