Of late it has been seen that people are largely into scrapbooking. Everyone wants their family albums to look attractive and thus they opt for scrapbooks, giving the stereotype photo albums a miss. Expecting mothers are bored with the typical baby shower games and want to experiment with something new. Also, friends and relatives are more interested to see photos; photos seem to feed their curiosity better. Again, when the child grows up he would be able to see what his parents had planned for him before he was born. The intricate décor supplemented with tag lines, makes the baby shower scrapbook a thing to treasure.
These scrapbook kits offer a wide range of variety. Some are available in soft colors like baby pink, blue or lemon yellow, while some have frills and other embellishments attached to the corners of each page. These kits are ready to use and you need not put in much effort. Baby shower scrapbooks are also separately designed for new born girls and boys and you can buy accordingly. For parents who do not know the sex of the child to be born or rather, do not want to know, they can opt for the general ones. These kits are well equipped and are available at reasonable prices.
A 12" by 12" book is the perfect thing which would help you keep track of this wonderful event. The most interesting thing is, the pages of baby shower scrapbooks can be found in different shapes. Some are shaped like clouds, flowers and balloons while some have Donald ducks, Teddy bears and Mickey mouse motifs on them. You may keep it simple but this is something your child will love to gape through even years later. Also, the binders available are very bright and creative. You would also need photo adhesive and photo binders to hold the photos firmly in place. Do not compromise, because this is something which is going to last you long and when you take a walk down the memory lane you will be shocked at your own creativity! Even better would be, if you add quotations and captions. You can also try your hand at drawing. Use of markers, stencils and colored pens would make it all the more appealing.
A “Baby Photo Advice" section is also found in the shops. You might add this to your scrapbook. It is in these pages that near and dear ones scribble their thoughts and advices for the child to read and understand when he or she grows up. Such comments are really encouraging and heart rending. If you are religious at heart, that can also be reflected in your baby shower scrapbook. Various religious themes are available which you may paste if you wish to. Those who would be born around Christmas or Easter, you get themes telling about the holidays. These help in further beautifying the book.
Also, picture borders can be bought. All that has to be done is, cut them into proper sizes and paste them on the pictures. This adds a uniqueness to the photos. But one should be careful while selecting the borders; it must go with the mood of the photo. These borders are available in motifs, baby prints, cartoons, candies and sometimes in confetti. But before pasting these you should make sure that the page is completely ready, adding borders and pasting photos should be done at last.
Yet another attraction is the stickers. Character stickers are also available. May be you can go for a Tom and Jerry sticker, even Power puff girls would not be bad either. They can be pasted on binders and on the pages as well. This would make your handwork all the more aesthetic. Childbirth is an occasion worth celebrating, so, make your child's baby shower album something really unique. It has to be special, isn't it!
