Ask guests for a new baby scrapbook page idea
Include the baby shower guests as you plan your baby shower scrapbooking ideas. Here are some fun ideas you'll love:
Advice for the mom-to-be. Using Microsoft Publisher, make index size cards in advance that have a place for a person to write advice and sign her name. Add a cute border to each card. As guests arrive, ask them to fill out a card and place it in a designated basket. Provide colored gel pens for guests to use.
Photo snapping fun. Place one or two disposable cameras at each table. Encourage guests to take fun photos of each other during the baby shower. Develop the photos and use the best photos for a new scrapbook page.
Baby themed die-cuts. Prior to the shower, purchase or make baby-themed or baby related die-cuts. Provide permanent thin-tip markers and ask guests to add a cute word or phrase to the die-cuts. Search for the best places to incorporate the die-cuts throughout your baby scrapbook album.
One super fun baby shower scrapbook idea is to add nursery rhymes to a page. Think about something that best suits the baby-to-be and his or her family. Prior to the shower, create pages that have a nursery rhyme and picture on them.
Fun tip:Have your guests create sweet rhymes you'd love to add to a page. You may even give out a prize to the winning rhyme! Honestly though, as long as they rhyme and they're fun! After all, we've heard "spoon ran away with the moon" or "three blind mice" before, right?
Here's an example of a made-up rhyme from a recent baby shower:
(Rhymes with "There was an old lady who lives in a shoe...) Ms. Casey Lu was suffering the mommy-to-be blues She still has two months before she's even due Ahh...go visit your cousin Sally and her five lads And you'll discover that waiting might not be so bad!
Where's baby? Make it fun.
Remember when "Where's Waldo" was such a hit? In books, magazines, and even puzzles, you had to search and find out where Waldo was hidden in the midst of other things. For a new and unique baby shower page, you can use this same concept. On each layout, include a picture of a baby or the word "baby". Viewers will have fun looking for the baby on each page.
Fun scrapbooking layout idea: make interactive pages that everyone can enjoy and play along with!
Create a baby's collage. Current tidbits.
When it comes to your baby shower album, how about creating a collage of current information by using side-by-side page layouts? Years from now, it will be fun to look back on the collage and realize how much has changed since the time of your baby's birth. Here is something related you may want to include:
Price of gas
Cost of milk and bread
The latest technology
The year and make of your vehicle
Price of diapers
Popular song or movie
Famous clothing brands
In addition to these ideas for a baby shower scrapbook, be sure to save the gift wrapping paper, gift bags, and cards from the baby shower.
Some of the wrapping paper and gift bags may be used as sweet backgrounds for your layouts. The cards can be cropped and used to create die-cuts you'll love. The insides of the cards can be used as baby quotes for your layouts.
