PHOTOS, PHOTOS, PHOTOS
Nothing makes a scrapbook more personal than photos of you and your little one. You can make the picture the center of your scrapbook page and work around it. Thank goodness for colored printers!
PROTECT YOUR PAGES and MAKE ROOM FOR NEW ONES
Consider plastic covers (like in a clear-book to protect your pages. You can also try using silver ring binders to put the pages together so it is easier to add new ones.
FLAUNT YOUR PENMANSHIP
I always imagined scrapbooks to have script personal handwriting. Why not write your own descriptions and messages to make your collection of memories more intimate?
COLLECT SMALL SOUVENIRS
Keep receipts, tickets, invitations and other trinkets that remind you of special events. I wished I kept Ben's hospital bracelet when he was a newborn.
RE-SIZE BIG ITEMS
Ben's teachers last year scanned some of his artworks so that they can become part of his scrapbook. I thought it was a very cool idea
HAVE A VARIETY OF THEMES
Ben's teachers would suggest a lot of themes for us to work on. From family, favorite food, and even things that make him happy vs. sad.. A scrapbook is not just a great way of treasuring precious moments but also for getting to know your little one better
