My sister’s baby shower was during Labor Day weekend. She requested a paper baby scrapbook for my niece. I asked her if a digital scrapbook would do (so I could have a copy too) but she wanted a paper scrapbook. I have not made a layout with paper in several months so I procrastinated until just before me my trip out to see her.
I started with a large collection of baby girl scrapbook paper and embellishments!
I wanted to keep the front page of the scrapbook simple to showcase a 10×8 newborn photo of my niece but I had to add a little bling. 🙂
I will complete the page by putting the baby’s name in glitter letters along the bottom once she is named!
Pregnant Belly Pics
I asked my sister to take profile pictures each month during her pregnancy. When I did this myself, I used signs that I wrote x weeks or x months on but I thought it would be simpler for her to hold up the number of fingers that correspond to how many months she is pregnant at the time.
I did this layout late at night and if you look closely you will see I put two pics of my sister at 5 months on there. My sister discovered my error and it was easily fixed. Luckily I had right number of photo mats on the page. I wanted to have a pic of my sister every month from 2 – 9 months. If she has the baby before 9 months she put a picture of her holding the baby for the last photo.
It’s A Girl
My brother-in-law scanned all my sister’s ultrasounds. I edited each ultrasound in Photoshop to do the following:
– cropped to a 3:2 aspect ratio so they could be printed as a 6×4 photo
– converted to black and white
– added a larger date and time on the image
The It’s A Girl layout showed just two of the 11 ultrasounds images so I added a We R Memory Keepers 12×12 3-Ring Photo Sleeve with 6×4 Pockets with all the edited ultrasound images. I didn’t take a photo of it but you can see it in this photo of my sister and brother-in-law looking through the scrapbook during their baby shower.
My sister will provide me with pictures after the baby is born and I plan on creating monthly layouts for my niece.
I hope you enjoyed this peek at the baby girl scrapbook layouts I made for my sister!
