Ever since the beginning of photography,
there have been family albums. Scrapbooking is becoming an increasingly
popular way to personalize family albums. With new trends emerging
all the time, it’s easy to see why someone could, and would,
throw a baby shower with a theme of scrapbooking. In today’s
modern world, many women have become bored with ‘traditional’
baby shower games. It’s human nature to be curious, and people
love to see pictures.
With so many different kinds of scrapbooks out there, how do you
know which one to choose? The answer is simple, choose one to fit
your tastes – whether they be simple designs with traditional
pink and blue colors, or extravagant designs with any color of your
choosing. Nowadays, there are scrapbooking kits that are geared
specifically toward baby showers. These kids are made simple to
use and come complete with everything for the ‘do-it-yourself’
mentality of today’s new and future parents. There are scrapbooking
kits available in colors for bouncing baby boys, or beautiful baby
girls. Of course, there are also kits that provide unisex colors,
in case the parents don’t want to know the sex of the baby
A scrapbook is the opportunity for you to showcase the parents’
new baby. Baby shower scrapbooks offer an extensive selection of
binders and page types galore. Of course there’s always the
option of keeping things simple, but options of yellow rubber ducks,
pink teddy bears and blue skies, who wouldn’t want a little
something extra? Of course, the most important part of starting
your scrapbook is choosing the binder that best fits your needs.
To begin, you will need to have at least one page set aside for
every two guests. Keep handy a few sets of 4” by 6”
index cards which are available in a variety of colors so that your
guests can fill each fill out a card with their own words and designs.
Don’t forget stickers, photo borders, markers and pencils
to add some ‘pop!’ to the pages.
You could also consider having an advice section in your scrapbook.
Make sure to use sheets that fit your scrapbook’s binder,
and then let everyone write their own advice to the baby for the
future. Remember that scrapbooks can literally be made-to-order
to fit one’s tastes, so if you’re religious, there are
many religious themes that can be use. If the baby is born near
or on a holiday, try incorporating that into the book.
With endless possibilities, you can do just about anything. With
the colored pages, come matching photo borders that can be cut to
fit the size of the photo and simply pasted on. There are a variety
of styles, shapes, and sizes that can include anything from clouds
to various shapes, and even cartoon characters. This allows you
to incorporate your baby’s tastes in toys and colors as they
grow and develop through their life. Keep in mind; this book is
just as much a memory of you for them as it is of them for you.
