Baby Scrapbook Layouts

With another new baby coming into the family I just knew I had to make up another scrapbook.

After all it's tradition!

I always find just enjoyment in making baby scrapbook pages.  There's such excitement surrounding a new baby and it's so fun to celebrate them!


I also tend to feel a bit nervous as I'm making each scrapbook.  I always have that niggling little fear that the recipients of the gift wont like it.  Maybe I'm choosing the wrong color scheme or maybe they'd rather receive a gift that's more useful; like a package of diapers and some onesies.

And yet I have always had my gifts received with such wonder and joy.

Here is a small sneak peak at the album I'm working on now:


 Expectant mother page!  I never used to try and include this page since I hated having my picture taken when I was pregnant but now that my boys are older I just LOVE those pictures.  This page allows for a nice 5x7 picture of mom and her belly.  I used lots of pinks and flowers and kept it girly knowing that even if the baby is a boy the theme fits along with mom and her personality. I found a sticker set that included the silhouette, the banner, the flowers, and the title.


Look Whooo's Here! I found this cute owl paper and I knew with the greens, grays and orange that it was perfect!  I used my Cricut for the title.  Cut two 4x6 rectangles for the photos and outlined them in a chalk marker making it look like stitching.  I used my Stampin Up! Punches to make the owl on the branch and completed the page with a cutout from a paper pack all about babies.  The colors on the cutout matched perfectly and gives the mom the right spot to list the baby's name, birth date, hospital, height and weight.  I embellished the cutout with some matching ribbons.



This page is perfect for a myriad of photos of the baby.  With a generic title like Beautiful Baby this page can be used for just about anything.  I stuck with greens and a variety of pastel colors so it works for boy or girl.


I just knew I had to use these darling stickers when I found them!  I always include a baby's first bath page and these were just too cute to pass up!  I couldn't decide which ones to use so I used them all!  I cut out tiny squares and mounted a sticker on each one.  I laid them down the side of the page and cut two larger rectangles for photos; topping the page off with the title sticker.


Nothing says nap time quite like a baby blanket.  I love this paper that evoked the feelings of a baby blanket and knew I wanted a sleeping baby page.  After all don't all babies look so adorable when they're sleeping?  I found the perfect title and rocking chair sticker to embellish the page and decided to put all the picture mounts right down the center of the page.

So far I'm very pleased with it all!

  3. I'm terrible at scrapbooking. I have not done anything for my 3 year old or 1 year old yet! I am just not the crafty type, but I need to do something like this! Thanks for linking up with Blogger's Spotlight and please come back again!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I find most people don't feel crafty and that's why I make these albums; so those non crafty moms can still have beautiful memory books.
