Baby Scrapbook Ideas

Here are some Baby Scrapbook Page Ideas to give you inspiration for preserving the precious memories of your sweet bundle of joy.  Baby Scrapbook Layouts are some of the most popular among scrapbookers. Everyone wants to savor the memories of the birth of their little one with baby scrapbook layouts.

With great baby scrapbook page headers, beautiful paper, and a few ideas for creating baby scrapbook ideas, you can make a keepsake scrapbook album that will be treasured for years to come.

Baby Scrapbook Ideas - A new baby should have a special baby book filled with lots of photos and momentos. Here are some scrapbook layouts to give you some ideas for creating Baby's First Scrapbook.

Getting Started

  1. Gather your supplies and photos.  I recommend Shutterfly for developing your photos.  They have great customer service and often have specials.  They can do prints in all sizes and even have personalized gifts.
  2. If you’re new to scrapbooking, visit How To Make A Scrapbook to learn the basics.  There is a supply list for beginners and instructions for getting started.
  3. Find some inspiration.  Visit my Scrapbook Layouts board on Pinterest or purchase a book like It’s All About Baby to get more ideas.

This Baby Scrapbook Idea is easy to copy. All you need is solid cardstock and a few different patterned papers. Add a few embellishments and your photos, and this page will be complete.  I used patterned papers leftover from another project.  Using a Martha Stewart Paper Punch, I added a scalloped border to one strip.

The acrylic tiles spelling out “Katiebug” are from Doodlebug Designs, and the flower die cuts are on the Cricut.  The Cricut is wonderful for adding accents, borders, and shapes to your pages.

It’s a simple layout that leaves lots of room for photos.

Baby Scrapbook Ideas - This layout is very simple, uses scraps, and features 5 photos.

Pregnancy Scrapbook Pages For Your Baby Album

You may want to include Pregnancy Scrapbook Pages among your Baby Scrapbook Layouts in your Baby Scrapbook Album. Here is a list of suggestions for photos to take for Pregnancy Scrapbook Layouts.

  • Positive Pregnancy Test
  • Reactions from friends and family when they learned of the pregnancy
  • Mom’s first doctor visit
  • Gender Reveal
  • Month by Month photos of the pregnant belly
  • Sonograms
  • History of Parents and Grandparents
  • The nursery
  • Baby Shower
  • Birthing Classes
  • Going to the Hospital
  • Labor & Delivery

This adorable Christmas Scrapbooking Layout is perfect for a 5×7 photo of Santa and three sweet boys. I made the Ho Ho Ho title using the Pazzles Creative Cutter.  You can make similar titles using the Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Explore or you can purchase a ready made title.  To see more scrapbook projects from this designer, visit Paper Deckerations.

This Premade Baby Boy Scrapbook Page features blue and soft yellow. The rubberstamped bunny and the Cricut clothespin are perfect for this baby layout. The bunny is from Stampin’ Up, and the clothespin is from the New Arrival Cricut Cartridge. The border was made using a punch from Martha Stewart called Optic Dot. There is lots of room for photos! This layout would also be adorable in pink.

In addition to photos, you may want to add other momentos to your scrapbook.  Here is a list of keepsakes that you may want to collect for your Baby Scrapbook.

  • Baby Shower invitation and napkin
  • Baby bracelets
  • Hospital Bill (You might be saying OUCH! now, but in 30 years, it will make for great conversation.)
  • Bassinette Card from the hospital
  • Greeting Cards
  • Lock of hair after first haircut
  • Baby bonnet
  • Infant diapers (unused of course!)
  • Infant socks
  • Scraps from a beloved blankie or stuffed animal.

Craft Therapy Thursday Link Party #15

Welcome to Craft Therapy Thursday Link Party #15 sponsored by P.S. I Love You Scrapbooking.

Craft Linky Party sponsored by P.S. I Love You - Come visit and link up to 3 craft projects. www.psiloveyouscrapbooking.com

It’s been a busy week, and I haven’t had a chance to squeeze in any crafting time for myself.  I helped a little girl with some Perler Bead crafts though, and she LOVES them.  She finished up the cutest pink dog, and now she is working on a butterfly.  She will finish it next time she comes over.

I haven’t done any crafting, but I’m working on my craft room.  When you watch this video and see the mess, you’ll understand why I haven’t gotten any crafting done!

Cricut Design Space and NEW iPhone App!

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links.

This is Post #3 in a 4 part series about the Cricut Explore Machines, how they work, what they can do, and what you can make.  Here are links to Parts 1 and 2.  Part #4 will be coming next week!

Cricut Explore Machines

What Can I Create With the Cricut Explore Machine?

If you read last week’s post, you now know why Cricut’s Explore One™ and Explore Air™ machines are so incredible – and a must-have for any crafter.

But what bridges the gap between the creative ideas in your head and the Cricut machine is the Cricut Design Space™.

Cricut’s Design Space™ is software for PC, Mac®, iPhone® and iPad® that you get for free with your Cricut machine of choice.

Instead of trying to figure out how to make your project, Design Space gives you the ability to focus on what you want to make. Your Cricut machine takes it from there and brings it to life.

Cricut Design Space and iPhone App for Cricut Explore One and Cricut Explore Air Machines

With Design Space, you can start designing from scratch on your computer, iPhone® or iPad®, or you can use a pre-designed, Make It Now™ project. These ready-to-make projects are created by professional artists and include everything from home décor to fashion to paper crafting, and even a variety of FREE projects.

If you want to use one of Cricut’s 50K+ images, you can try them out in the Design Space to see which will look best in your project before you commit to purchasing it.

Uploading Images

When you’re ready to start designing, you can either use one of Cricut’s 50K+ images or easily upload your own using the “Upload Images” tool in Design Space. You can upload and cut .svg, .jpg, .png, .bmp, .gif, and .dxf files absolutely FREE. You can even use fonts already installed on your computer.

Cut What You Want® tool

The Design Space’s Cut What You Want® tool makes it easy to convert your design into a cuttable image in just a few clicks!

The Cricut Design Space™ app for iPad® and iPhone®

Cricut’s easy-to-use app for the iPad® and iPhone® makes it possible for you can design anytime and anywhere inspiration strikes you.

It also allows you to access all the project’s that you’ve personally designed, whether on your iOs device or your PC or Mac, and gives you access to all the Make-it-Now projects.

With this app, you can start a project while at the beach, enhance it at the ice-cream shop, add some embellishments while cozying up on your couch, and then cut it on the Cricut Explore in your craft room. Plus, it’s cloud-based, so your projects are always synced across all your devices.

P.S. Cricut is working on an Android™ app right now, so don’t feel left out if you don’t have an iPad or iPhone.

In a nutshell, Cricut Design Space™ gives you the creative freedom to design just about anything! Make party invitations, decorations, and favors. Create seasonal home décor or personalize wedding gifts. Add embellishments to your favorite photo memories.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! That’s why next week’s post (the last on in this series) will focus on some really fun and interesting projects that people have created using their Cricut machine and the Cricut Design Space.

Stay tuned!
