Hi, I just wanted to tell everyone a great way to preserve all the things they collected from their babies and put them into a Scrapbook.
Well I wanted to do this for my first child, so there won't be any jealousy when my next one comes. That she is special too and that I have collected everything I got from her, when she was NB. I had a box full of her things. And finding a way to put it all together and perserve it in such a cute way is just great. I collected our tags from the hospital to her bellycord and her hair and all the babyshower cards and whatever i found and put in the box. It was sad it was just in the box, so now it's in a big nice folder. I put my favorite pics with a little info text and decorated the pages with stuff from her babyshower and whatsoever I found in the box. Now the box which was just taking up room in the house is gone, and its content is placed wonderfully in a nice Scrapbook. Since I am just a beginner it doesn't look as good as the one you see in those stores smile , but it is made from the heart and you cant beat that!!!

Yes its a great idea - and if you add sheets with pictures, and interesting landmarks such as first words at what age - dates of first tooth - able to hold a cup - crawl etc - then when you are a grandma you can refer to the scrapbook. My grandchildren are fascinated by the little wristband from when Daddy was born!

I also tore out the diary page for the month before and month after my son arrived. It just says a word or two about how I felt - who visited and so on - the weather - and when he regained his birthweight.
Another thing I did was cut and kept a very small snippet of his hair about every year till he was about 5. It shows how his blond hair darkened. Now its almost black  LOL

Its amazing how looking at the book now takes me back to when I first held the little ones - I remember thinking at the time "cherish this moment when he/she is so tiny - and you feel the velvety newborn skin - I wonder when this baby is grown to be an adult, whether you will remember sitting holding him and thinking this".   I can tell you the answer - yes you DO remember - the scrapbook brings it all back.

Scrapbook is  like a time capsule, I saw something like my partner's Scrapbook and his mother has still a lot of things when he was a NB (33 years ago), some of theese things we use for our soon - small blankets, bedclothes, cot! I'm doing a special Flavio's book where I stick every piece of wrapping paper which has some significant for us (Flavio's presents etc.), Zoo tickets, postcards, his first images. One day I'll record it with him

What a great idea smile . I was keeping a diary of all my baby's accomplishments. Now I think I'll go for a Scrapbook so I can write some notes and include also some of his things I keep in a drawer. I don't want to look so silly  confused but  I am not sure about what a Scrapbook is unsure , I think I haven't seen any . Could you please tell how have you made it? , and which sort of materials have you used to make it.?

When I made scrapbooks I went to an artist supply shop or art department where they sell drawing materials. I bought a spiral bound cartridge paper drawing pad and used that. They have lots of pages in and you can past a cover on using wrapping paper or a collage of your baby's pictures or whatever.  yes
If that gets full - you can start another - maybe have one for each year  big grin

Oh, yes, scrapbooking is a lot of fun.  smile  When my oldest was two (right before he turned 3) I had a stack of pictures and couldn't remember the timeline of events.  I could remember what we did and some fun things about them.  So, I decided to make an alphabet scrapbook and organized the pictures that way.  I had a big letter in the corner and labled the pictures with words that went with that letter.  I'd also journal here and there about the memories pictured.  I had my scrapbook on normal acid free 8.5 x 11 paper and put them in acid-free sheet protectors.  That way the children could look at the pages and get as many fingerprints on them as they wanted.  smile 

Recently my sister-in-law bought me scrapbooking software, so I can do it on my computer.  (The Christmas card I posted on the forum was done with the scrapbooking software.)  I then send it off to places like Shutterfly (online photo develping) as a digital photo and have them send it back to me as a photo book or flip book (the flip books look like 4 x 6 photos bound together with a spiral binding with thick plastic covers.  My kids like these, too, as they are just their size.  (Grandma likes them too because they fit into her purse make a good "brag book".) The only disadvantage is that I can't paste in ticket stubs and such, but I have scanned them into the computer and used them that way. 

We've also done calendars this way.  The photo section is a scrapbook page of what happened last year during that month.  If I would write more on my calendar, it would be a good record of what we did that year.  We save the calendars and have a good time looking back and reminicing. (Oh, and of course grandma loves them, too.) 

I attached a scrapbook page that I did on the computer, just for jun. smile If you click on it, you will be able to see it in a bigger size.   Wink

Hi there, loved reading this thread.  I love scrapbooking!!  Don't do enough of it though - it is pretty addictive.  When I had my son one of my gifts was a baby calander.  It had little stickers that you could stick in for important things like first day out and granny and grampa's visit and for the weather etc.  It had it's own little write up at for the one page above the calander, so what I did to personalise it was to do scrapbooking on top of their write up.  It came out really neat and then I wrote all my notes for each day and added the stickers.  I also printed some pictures of him really small and stuck them in too as well as some of the pictures from his baby cards.  It was loads of fun as a project like that can be.  I did get behind a bit here and there so also kept a little diary so I could add it in latter.  Wish I could take a picture for you to see, but our computer is down and are using another one and haven't figured out all the bits to it.  Maybe, I still will when I get the chance.  Anyway, loved the links given thanks for sharing.  Karma to you all.
