Scrapbook Idea for A Baby Shower Gift

I created a scrapbook as a Baby Shower gift for a friend who had waited ten years for a baby… She and her husband deserved something special, so I spent a few joyful weeks cutting and taping a few hours a day, and this was their gift.

It is a 10″ by 10″ album that I wrapped the cover of in tulle, rick rack trim, and thin rope. I added two charms in the baby’s name. I made sure each page had page protectors. The sticker reads: “simply glowing” (and she was!) A space for mommy to put her pregnancy photos. I used vintage tatted lace on the pink squares.
“Mommy to be”

On the left is the invitation. I had great fun at the scrapbooking store, Hobby Lobby, and online, finding cute and fun stickers and papers! Below are pages where you can put pictures from the baby shower,” showered in love.”

The pink cornered ribbon on the left will hold cards in place. On the right side, I made a pocket inside the pink paper to hold more momentos. There was a “Prayers for Daniel” box on the table at the shower,
with pieces of paper next to it so friends and family could bless the family. I thought the pocket would be perfect for those. Lots of “firsts” in the first year, of course.

I loved the saying below the crib die cut:
“In the evening, after he has gone to sleep, I kneel beside the crib and touch his face, which is pressed against the slats with mine.

  • Ribbon to hold pictures in here, too.
  • A tree and garden mural was on his bedroom wall, so I found tree paper to match!
  • A pocket on the right side is also filled with removable tags for grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, mom, and day to write their first thoughts about the baby.
  • 1st Month.
  • 2nd and 3rd Months.
  • These stickers are from Jolee’s Boutique (Hobby Lobby).

This was so much fun!

  • I heart happy, jumpy, bouncy frogs!!
  • Months 4 and 5.
  • Another pocket on the left.

A bitty booklet to write memories/milestones in, with tabs on pages labeled:

  • Small Wonders, Crib Notes, YUM, and 100% Cute.
  • Hand over the bottle, and no one gets hurt.
  • 6th and 7th Months.
  • Month 9 and Month 10.

These are probably my favorite pages because I love vintage colors and the deer. Did I mention this was a blast to make?

The tag up left reads:

  • Baby: 1. A tiny human. 2. An infant. 3. The sweetest, most beautiful child on the planet–ours.
  • More stinkin’ cute stickers from Jolee’s for Months 10 and 11.
  • Notice the “bubble” stickers on the paper circles that spell “P-l-a-y”?
  • Every perfect gift is from above. James 1:17
  • I made a massive mess all over the dining room while making this!
  • I just left the paper and trimmings where they fell till I was done.
  • My First Christmas!
  • The orange paper below is fuzzy! Fun!
  • This is the new dad opening the gift at the shower.
  • He cried, and then I knew the time I had spent was worth it.
  • Welcome, Little One!!

I enjoy creating this scrapbook so the newly born and their parents can experience the most beautiful time. I hope this scrapbook idea for a baby shower can help you to create a memorable gift for your loved ones.
