One of the fastest growing trends in the world of scrapbooking are pregnancy scrapbook pages!
Moms-to-be are eager to share their exciting news with family and friends, and what better way than to create a scrapbook. Read on for cool ideas on how to create a gorgeous pregnancy scrapbook layout.
Brag book vs. album.
A pregnancy scrapbook album typically covers the time between when you first discovered that you were pregnant and the day your baby was born.
Since it might not be practical to carry a scrapbook album with you as you meet the girls for lunch or go visit your in-laws, you might want to consider putting together a brag book instead. Brag books are usually 5×7 inches in size and can house 10 front/back pages
Of course it’s perfectly fine to put together a full-size album. It all depends on what you want to include and how much time you can afford to put into the album.
Certainly a lot will happen during your nine months of pregnancy so it will be easy to fill up an album.
What do you want to remember about your pregnancy? What special moments do you want to be able to relive as you look through your pregnancy scrapbook pages in years to come? These are the things that you want to make sure to include in your album.
Here are some ideas to consider:
Be creative with pages.
Talk to your baby.
When your baby becomes a young child, he or she will love to go through the pregnancy album with you over and over. Consider keeping all of your journal entries as conversations to your unborn child. As you put your scrapbook together, consider journaling about:
Making it personal.
In addition to photos and journaling, think about the special items you can embellish your pregnancy scrapbook pages with. Include the messages and/or pictures from some of the congratulations cards. On the page of your first ultrasound, adhere the appointment card. On the pages of outfits for your baby, include some of the clothing tags. Years from now you’ll get a good laugh out of the name brands and the price tag!
At your local craft store, you’ll find lots of baby related items–stickers, rubber stamps, buttons, die-cuts and more! Choose a few that will enhance your pages.
The more you work on your album, the more you’ll come up with pregnancy scrapbook ideas. Remember this is a special time for you to bond with your unborn child. You want to capture as much of the experience as you can.
