Before you begin any sort of scrapbooking project, it is important that you know where you're headed. Essentially, this means that you have a plan so that you don't keep yourself from being productive. To start your baby scrapbook, you need to pick a theme that will give flow to your pages. Whether you pick an alphabet or animal theme, your beginner's baby scrapbooking project will be begun.

 

Scrapbooking can be a fun and creative hobby that helps you immortalize your memories and relax in the process. But, if you're new on the job, starting a project can be difficult. So, what should you know before you start your beginner's baby scrapbooking project? Follow these tips and you'll be on your way!
 
#1 - Stick with a Theme
Before you begin any sort of scrapbooking project, it is important that you know where you're headed. Essentially, this means that you have a plan so that you don't keep yourself from being productive. To start your baby scrapbook, you need to pick a theme that will give flow to your pages. Whether you pick an alphabet or animal theme, your beginner's baby scrapbooking project will be begun.
 
#2 - Be Prepared
A piece of advice that should always follow, regardless of the project, is to get yourself organized. Scrapbooking requires a large number of materials, space, and time. So, when you're starting off, make sure that you have everything you need. Remember to have adhesive, paper, archival pens, templates, stickers and other embellishments, and cutting tools nearby. You'll save time in the long run by doing this. And, you'll have an easier time visualizing your beginner's baby scrapbooking project with all of your materials on hand.
 
#3 - Layer Away
To give your pages a great deal of interest, layer your stickers and photos on more than one sheet and color of paper. Each time you layer, change the paper size and give your pages a stacking effect. It makes your items look more dimensional and exciting.
 
#4 - Blend Colors
When you're selecting your materials, try to pick colors that compliment each other. You can do this by mixing different intensities of the same color (light pink with dark pink) or with different patterns of the same color. Plus, you can mix pastels of several colors or all primary colors on your pages. Keeping things uncolored won't be interesting; changing up your palette will.
 
#5 - Layout Twice, Glue Once
Ultimately, the page layout on your beginner's baby scrapbook project will determine the overall effect. This means that if your pages look boring and simple, they won't be interesting to look at. So, get all of your elements ready by layering your photos and selecting your embellishments. Then, place them on your scrapbook page. See how everything fits and even try moving it around a few times. When you're finally satisfied, glue it down. This will keep you from trying to pull up glued items and possibly damaging photos.
 
Being a beginner at baby scrapbooking isn't such a bad thing. You need to keep yourself organized and your beginner's baby scrapbooking project will be a big hit!
