Title: Mini Baby Scrapbook help!
Post by: mandalol219 on May 21, 2006 09:46:40 AM
*rises from the dead*
i honestly hate my internet connection, i couldn't get on forever

anyways, I wanted to make a mini-scrapbook for my cousins who are having a baby. I have to make two, and I was looking at those photo albums where you have the top and the bottom? ahhh like this:

but im having a hard time finding the albums, all of the ones that I've found aren't really ones that look like a baby book type thing. Does anybody know where I can pick them up? I've checked stores around my area ands looked a little online. I would think they'd be so easy to find! Any help would be amazing~

I don't know where you've looked... if I were looking, I would go to Target first.. we have a lot of scrapbooking stores in my area, you might check those..

I don't want to mention the obvious - but if you've found the style you want, you could recover it with a baby print material or add some baby-scrapbook pages or do something crafty to make it more like a baby book.. and personal, too.

thanks, I don't have any scrapbooking stores near me, but I took your suggestion about making it more personal, and covered it with fabric. Thanks!

this is a little different , maybe you can modify it but what i am going to do for my sister is get envelopes(the bigger kind)and glue them together to make a book, i will have to do a cover too. but the reason i am doing this is because i know with my kids i always had extra stuff, like the hospital band, and cards from the hospital and other odd things like first haircut and what not and i just had them stuffed in but i thought wouldn't it be nice to have a place to put them.
