Scrapbooking has become more than a hobby and for some people is almost a way of life! You can hire a skilled scrapbooker to create a personalized scrapbook for you if you like. However, you don't have to have a professional to put together a great scrapbook of your pregnancy or about your baby.
A scrapbook is like a combination journal and photo album. It is highly visual, with lots of photos, but is also very personalized, with captions or short remembrances. You can purchase supplies specifically meant for scrapbooking, including acid-free paper, decals, decorations, backgrounds, and more. You can take scrapbook classes to learn skills and techniques, and you can also buy books about scrapbooking to give you ideas.
In addition to photos and words, you can also include items like cards, announcements, ultrasound print-outs, the name tag from the hospital bassinet, and more. Some moms start a scrapbook during pregnancy but then have a hard time finding the time to work on it after the baby comes. Buy a box where you can keep all your scrapbooking supplies and where you can toss things you want to add to the scrapbook. This way, it is all in one place whenever you can steal a few minutes to assemble it.
