Play around with hues of blue and grey or lightly masculine colors.

Did you save the gift wrapping paper from your baby shower? If so, they can be used as a background for baby shower scrapbooks.
Using gift wrapping paper as a substitute for scrapbook paper will save you the trouble of looking for the right themed pattern paper for your scrapbooking album background.
Don't have quite enough materials from your baby shower to cover an entire page? Coordinate it with color card stock. Divide the page into four quarters, use the wrapping page for two diagonal quarters, and the card stock for the other two quarters.
You may also want to frame your baby shower pictures using the wrapping paper and keep the rest for future scrapbooking supplies. Trust me, you'll thank me later.
As family members and relatives meet your baby boy for the first time, take photos of them holding onto your baby, feeding him, or maybe even helping with a bath.
Ask each person to share their first thoughts about the baby in a sentence or two. You may even want to prepare an old scrapbooking paper for them to write down their first ideas about your little one.
Use these first impression notes on a page along with photos of your baby with that person. These turn beautiful baby boy scrapbooking layouts with a personal touch from family members.
Either go online and download characters such as Suzy Zoo animals, Pink Fong, Super Monsters, Bluey, Waldo, PJ Masks, and more! Use a new set of characters on each spread as a cheeky embellishment.
If you have another child who is old enough to help with the journaling, ask him or her to do so. Their first notes or scribbles add a great touch to your pages and will also give your older child a sense of pride.
Chances are your older children will find it to be a lot of fun and the ideas they come up with will definitely be new and creative. First of all, be open when you invite them to help out, children can be very playful around crafts and arts.
You can still do the writing or typing, but try to present the information as though they are telling it.
Quite often a portion of a song or poem is added to a scrapbook page as a special accent.
You might consider using an entire song or poem and making it the focal point. Add small photos of your baby boy as special accents to the page.
Try thinking of songs that remind you of a special day with your baby like the first song you listened to when putting them to sleep.
Maybe even write down your own poem to commemorate a special day with your baby like their first smile or a short ode to their tiny fingers.
