    Does anyone out there love to scrapbook?? I'm thinking about getting started on the baby's album tonight. With 4 kids I'm SO far behind on all their scrapbooks. It's impossible to stay ahead unless I schedule time out to do it. Do you have any pages you'd like to share that you've done for either your new baby or other children that you have??? I'd love to see them :)

    These pages are ones I've done for my other children(I'm excited to start the baby's album pages:

    Here are samples of my Daughter Madeline's scrapbooks from 2009-2011: Madeline's Books

    And here are the few pages I have started for the baby: Baby's Book Started

    Sorry to just post links ladies, but trust me, there are 37 pictures in the first link and I don't think you'd want me to monster post them here in thread! :p Sorry also that they are tilted pictures, but I have them in sheet protectors, and they catch the light awfully and glare with the flash of the camera.

    ...Great, now I want to scrapbook...

    Here's the secret: Photo Boxes

    Take all your pictures, print them once a month or every few months at the very least, and put them in photo boxes, with names, dates and any important information. That way when you do go to scrapbook, you just start with the oldest pictures, and even if it has been a whole year you still know what info goes with what pictures.

    Good luck! I love scrapbooking too. :)

    I can't wait to start LO's scrapbook. Only problem is my craft room is now a nursery lol. I have a bit of a scrapbooking problem:haha:, I can't seem stop myself from buying stamps, paper etc. I have been stocking up on baby craft stuff for years and soon I will actually get to use it on my own baby:cloud9:

    I'm exactly the same, my craft room has become a nursery! I still have a desk in there with all my stash though. I'm really looking forward to doing it for my baby as I've enjoyed doing my niece's.

    Aww...I LOVE the scrapbook pages ladies:thumbup: From the looks of it some of you have been busy:haha: I feel so far behind...my oldest is 12 and unfortunetly I have forgotten a lot of stuff from when she was little and that's awesome advice Etoille about printing them monthly...I haven't printed some pictures from 2006 still!! That's why I haven't started my daughters...I feel terrible...I really need to make more time to scrapbook. I know I could find more time I just need to do it. I love it once I'm started but feel so overwhelmed just thinking about it:dohh: I have photo boxes all sorted by each kid and that does help alot! I'm excited to start my new LO's album with her scan pictures :)

    I love to scrapbook but just don't find the time with DD. I've just managed to do her first steps page ( happened last may) so have a lot of catching up, then this second baby!

    I'm the same way :haha: I know I could squeeze in at least one night though between all 4 kids activities and school stuff but I'm so exhausted by the time that break comes around. I'm a stay at home mom too so I'm sure I could squeeze in an hr here and there during the week. I have a lot of stuff but not enough to create a certain theme to do a page...I need to get better at buying supplies here and there since I don't buy anything for myself ever anyway :) I did 2 pages for our new baby girl last night...I'm proud of myself :haha: Each kid has a scrapbook but I'm very behind on them and they each have a school album also that includes their awards, party invites and special papers throught the year along with class pictures. So they each really have 2 if they are school age. The school ones are all current (thank god :) ) . I collect the stuff all year long then in the summer time I do the year they just finished...so that's how I stay ahead on those:thumbup: I'll post pictures later of the 2 pages I did last night :)
