View Full Version : Scrapbooking 101- my first attempt is in the works

02-25-2005, 09:09 AM
We received a 20 page 6x6 book as a gift, and I want to go the same. The goal is for the parents to put 1 picture per page for the child. The baby will arrive around St Patty's Day (Irish baby)

I was thinking of the following pages, please let me know if I am missing something:
The day you were born
Coming home
Your family
First St Patrick's Day
First Easter (March)
July (4th of July)
Oct (Halloween)
Nov (Thanksgiving)- 2 pages b/c family will be together?
Dec -2 pages for First Christmas
Feb- First Valentine's Day
Mar- 1st Birthday

Any 6x6 examples would be appreciated. I am going to a class at AC Moore on Sunday for ideas. I bought a variety of stickers and have paper all cut for each page.

I make identical copies of a 6x6 scrapbook for the grandmothers, a great-grandmother and myself. Pre-baby, I kept the couple of pages I made pretty generic. You never know how cooperative the baby is going to be for any given occasion (boy have I learned that the hard way). I'm sure the pages I'm attaching are on the large size but these are a few of my favorite.





ETA- I don't necessarily do specific holidays, but try to do a page every 4-6 weeks or whenever I have a really cute picture. As you can tell there isn't a lot of room for much more than a title. I do think your list of pages is a really good start. If you don't say "first", then if the baby doesn't cooperate this year, maybe he will next year. Anyhow, I think it is a really sweet idea.

http://www.twopeasinabucket.com has some great examples in the Peanut Gallery. You can search by baby theme or page size.
