This week will be full of ideas for documenting the babies, or used-to-be-babies, in your life. And if you're thinking, "Eh... babies!" Don't go! Please stay! Our ideas for mini-albums, gifts, layouts and more can be easily used as inspiration for scrapbooking all the important people in your life.
We're starting off the week with baby-themed mini-albums and I have three fantastic ones to share with you.
Pieces of You
First up is Diane, with this cute mini about her sweet baby boy.
This mini album came together quickly using the coordinated Baby Boy line from Bella Blvd. The sticker sheet includes lots of cute baby themed designs that I used to embellish each page along with word stickers for journaling and captions.
Faith's First Year
Next is Aly, who put together this album documenting her daughter Faith's first year.
With the exception of the day she was born I took a photo of my youngest daughter, Faith, in front of the same blanket each month so I could document the tremendous growth of her first year. I also wrote about what she had learned and how she had changed each month on my blog. I put those together into this mini album to chronicle her first year.
Welcome to the World
Here's Marie's album, virtual guest-album put together from Facebook posts after her son's birth. For the record, now that I can go back and get older posts with Facebook's Timeline I'm totally doing this.
When I was a baby my mother received many, many cards. So many in fact, she created a whole scrapbook of cards and letters sent from friends and relatives. Things have changed a bit since 1977. Cards and letters are sent fewer and fewer, replaced by texts, emails, and Facebook. After Jack was born I decided to make a Facebook version of a well wishes scrapbook. I found icons on the internet, and now I have a place for all of those congratulations in one simple mini album.
As for me, it's no secret I love mini-albums, and I've posted my share of baby albums here over the last couple years. Here are links to five of my baby-themed mini-albums:
- Ryan's First Year from last month's gallery
- Side by Side from February 2011's gallery
- Where He's Been
- Emma's Firsts and The Week You Turned One, scroll down for both albums
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to come back tomorrow for day two of Baby Week!
