5 Great Ideas to Make Photo Scrapbook For Celebration A New Baby...and Create Memories For the Whole Family

Home >> Baby Scrapbook>> Photo Scrapbook


If you have boxes and boxes of old photographs and mementos, a photo scrapbook is what you need to get your memories organized.

I have seen digital scrapbooks made for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, the birth of a child, graduation from high school and college, retirement, as well as ones centered on a families' genealogy.

People who enjoy making scrapbook as a hobby will make one for just about any celebration or occasion.

Many people also enjoy putting together scrapbooks that center on family vacations.

The birth of a child is an unforgettable, life-altering event.

That's why a photo scrapbook is the best way to preserve cherished memories of the birth of a baby.

2. Learn the Real Life Experiences from My Wife

You should visit to your local hobby and craft store will afford you the opportunity to examine the many different styles of photo scrapbook that are available. They come in all shapes and sizes, as well as in a multitude of colors.

You may want to purchase a plain one, and customize the cover yourself. As for the inside of the photo scrapbook, there are endless choices when it comes to photo mounting pages, papers with pockets for securing mementos such as napkins, ticket stubs and matchbooks, and different tools to use for decoration purposes.

Some families are so organized, and so thoroughly enjoy putting together a photo scrapbook, that they end up having to purchase bookshelves or storages just to store their photographic creations on!

3. Be Special...and How To Make Yours' Unique?

Naturally the way you display baby mementos should be as unique and unforgettable.

Different colored paper can be used within the photo scrapbook, as well as different sizes and fonts for the text pages. Colored pencils, stickers, markers and paint pens will also add a personal touch.

If you have loose mementos such as napkins, invitations, hotel receipts or the like that need to be secured, stiff paper featuring pockets can be put into your scrapbook as a way to keep these items together.

When mounting photos for your book, it is wise to first sort the pictures by date, occasion, etc. before placing them into the photo scrapbook. Often, you will ruin more than one picture because it's mounted on the wrong page and then has to be removed.

Also, to add some flair to your photo scrapbook, consider using both black and white, as well as color film when taking pictures. The contrast between the two when mounted on the same page is dazzling.

If you decide to use softwar for the scrapbook design, use photoshop.

Here is a good video guide tech you how to create a vignette effect using Photoshop. Perfect for scrapbooking for your baby photos.

And don't be afraid to experiment!

Use stencils, glitter glue, border edge scissors, multicolored paper, textured paper, and different types of film to make your photo scrapbook one of a kind. It can be passed down from generation to generation, and will provide your loved little ones with wonderful stories of all the memorable times your family has shared.

The Last very important option is get it done online...the only cost is your creativity!

5. Make A Slideshow Instead of Scrapbooks

A great alternative to make your online photo scrapbook is making online photo slideshow and share it with your friends and families.

It's free.

And you can easily get your show published in Myspace, Friendster, Facebook and my favoritest Bebo.com.
