- Make sure to include your baby’s face on the first page or at the cover of the scrapbook. After all, you are creating the album for her, so it just makes sense that you feature her face on the scrapbook.
- Be sure to trim the edges of the photos so that you will not have size and fitting problems. The last thing that you want is a wrongly framed photo on the album.
- Cut out catchy lines from magazines or from the internet and paste them on the pages of the scrapbook. For example you could use something like “I am a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day” on top of your daughter’s cute photo could be a great way to spice up the look of your scrapbook.
