Whether this is your first child or not, you’ll want to celebrate this special event by creating a scrapbook album for your baby boy.
It’s easy and fun to look for creative ideas for scrapbooking all about your son.
The first topic that you need to think about when it come to making an album for your new baby boy is how detailed you would like the scrapbook to be.
There are a variety of dissimilar sizes you can choose from when it comes to selecting albums, so make sure, if it is going to be detailed, that you consider a larger size, such as a 12 x 12 album. It is a good idea to get an expandable album as well. As your baby boy grows, you can expand his album.
When you begin to organize all of your scrapbooking ideas you should start from the beginning like when you were pregnant.
Now, some women go so far as to save every detail of their pregnancy, even the pregnancy stick that indicated they were going to have their child. It is a personal choice. Be as detailed as you are comfortable with.
Now, if you are the kind of person that has saved such a thing, start the scrapbook with a picture of the stick, rather than the actual stick.
Another interesting suggestion for a baby boy album that you can include is a page documenting how your stomach grew month by month as you were pregnant. This can actually be split up into nine different pages, and on each page you can document how you were feeling at that exceptional stage of your pregnancy, as well as any food cravings that you had. Doctor visits and progress notations can be journaled here. Events from each month can be included.
Of course, you have to have pages of the actual delivery. While actual pictures of the event might or might not be included, things such as baby and mother hospital bracelets, as well as any other papers from that day, should be included. Remember to write about the special people who were in the delivery.
Once the baby has been born, the birth announcement is released. You should include a copy of that announcement in your scrapbook, as well as any greeting cards that were sent to you congratulating you on the arrival of your new baby. This can also include cards that were sent along with flowers. You can borrow ideas on how to preserve a flower from the article, "how you can craft a garden scrapbook," found here at die cutting machine.
There are a variety of other ways that you can make pages for a baby boy scrapbook album. However, you need to specify how long of a period the album should span. One idea is to have the scrapbook be about the baby’s first year, or if you are the kind of parent that takes a lot of photographs, you may want to consider dedicating a shorter period of time for each album.
To give your scrapbook a boy’s personality, use blue shades of cardstock. Place photos on varying shades of blue paper as well. A lot of different decorations are available for a baby boy theme. Finally, include his name and nickname, if he has one, often in your page titles. Don’t forget to add a personal touch to the outside of the album cover. You may place a ribbon from a baby shower package or have his name embossed on the cover, for example.
