Pregnancy Scrapbooking Ideas

When thinking of pregnancy scrapbooking ideas, you should consider your child’s perspective. What will he or she want to know about your pregnancy?

Typical pregnancy scrapbooking ideas can include

  • Documenting month-by-month progression of your growing tummy,

  • discussion of how you selected your child’s name,

  • journaling, how you really feel about your pregnancy,

  • What do you think of labour and delivery?

  • journaling that documents what type of parent you hope to be.

If your child has older siblings, it would be lovely having them create scrapbook pages that capture their feelings about your baby’s arrival.

If you enjoy creating themed albums, your pregnancy scrapbooking ideas could include creating a mini-book that features messages to your unborn baby from his or her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other relatives.

Pregnancy scrapbooking ideas for memorabilia that you can use in your pregnancy scrapbook includes;

  • appointment cards from your prenatal doctor visits,

  • articles from parenting magazines,

  • wrappers from your favorite pregnancy craving snack foods,

  • receipts from the items you purchased for your baby’s nursery.

Baby scrapbooking ideas may also include taking a photograph of your home pregnancy test and then documenting how you felt when you first learned that you were pregnant.

Include pictures of your ultrasound tests, but if you don’t know the sex of your baby, you can choose neutral-colored products to complete your pregnancy layouts. Pastel greens and yellows are always a popular choice, but soft gray or tan colors can also work well for your baby scrapbooking ideas.

You can search the Internet for titles, phrases, sayings and quotes about children and motherhood to create your own non-gender specific page embellishments. Or, you could create the basic framework of your book and leave blank spaces to fill in with the appropriate masculine or feminine embellishments after your baby is born.

Scrapbooking magazines can also be a good source of general family scrapbooking ideas, but some creative thinking can help you create more meaningful layouts for your child. Think about the things you wish you knew about your own grandparents or parents. There’s a good chance this information is similar to what your child will want to know about his or her family.

There are no definite rules when scrapbooking.Don’t take the process of creating your pregnancy scrapbook too seriously! In the future, your child will not care if your photo mats are cut crooked, if you accidentally placed a sticker in the wrong spot, if your handwriting is messy, or if you’ve misspelled a word in your journaling. The most important thing will be that you took the time to preserve your precious memories.
