DIY: Baby Scrapbook

Membuat baby scrapbook sudah kurencanakan jauh hari dari sejak aku kuliah: suatu saat aku akan mengabadikan segala perkembangan anakku kelak dengan scrapbook. I love journaling. I want to keep every moment of my precious person.

Qaddarullah, I don’t have a baby yet. But it’s okay because I have experiences with kids, Alhamdulillah. And now I have 1 month old nephew from my lil sister, his name is Sabiy Yuhriz Yattaqi.

And I’m really happy to scrapbook-ing Sabiy’s precious moments.

What do I need for scrapbook?

Photos

I think it’s so important in baby scrapbook, because we will keep abreast of their growth. Aku mencetak photo menggunakan 3 jenis kertas: glossy photo paper, glosy sticker paper dan kertas hvs.

Don’t forget, develop the pictures sooner than later, jangan menumpuk karena bisa kewalahan pada akhirnya. Faster I’ve done with the scrapbook, then easier it will be.

Book

Yeah…offcourse this is the most important one. You shouldn’t buy the book actually. Instead of buying an expensive album/book, you can buy or make one. Sebagai contoh: scrapbook yang kugunakan terdiri dari beberapa kertas:

  1. Hvs
  2. Kertas A4 warna-warni (SIDU Color)
  3. Kertas mika aneka warna yang biasa digunakan untuk menjilid makalah.
  4. Bagian luarnya kertas jeruk yang agak tebal.

Lalu satukan semua dengan jilid ring di tepat photocopy, kalau tidak salah biayanya Rp.6000,- per tahun 2011.

Papers

Banyak jenis yang bisa digunakan: kertas hvs putih, kertas hvs warna-warni, kertas asturo, kertas lipat, dll.

Tidak usah yang baru, aku bahkan biasa menggunakan kertas-kertas yang menurut orang lain s-a-m-p-a-h. Misalnya: kertas kado bekas layak pakai, kertas nasi, kertas salah hasil print, kertas koran, majalah dan lain sebagainya.

Journal-Journal-Journal

Add some writing, especially dates and big headline. This is where I add the personal touch that explains, describes and compliments the photos on my scrapbook layout.

The journal can be the story behind the photos, but sometime I put just the names, dates and occasion in the photo. E.g: Sabiy, 22 days, on my laps.

But other time I tell the complex story or special details I want to include, I even write a long…long…love letter.

Additional Stuff

Using other crafts like little leaves, yarns, buttons, ribbons, tickets, palleten, pop up sticker, even I use scraps or junk. You never know what you can use to make your scrapbook look good.
