Keeping up with Baby's Scrapbook

Keeping up with my daughters scrapbook has been impossible. Not only am I trying to make time to make sure the pages look perfect, I'm also trying to scrapbook on a budget, a tight budget. I keep putting everything off, then I'd end up with 100's of pictures that I'd be looking through trying to pick out the perfect 3 or 4. Then I'd spend hours and hours, sometimes days trying to catch up and make a bunch of pages. Finally a good friend of mine gave me a tip that has worked for me. Do one page each month- while the baby is young and you have so much to capture. That way everything is up to date and you're not looking back saying "oh no, I have a whole years worth of her life to scrapbook and no money to use!" As my daughter gets older I might not need to do a page a month, maybe a page every other month, or just her big accomplishments but I know I can't let them pile up or I'll be back in the same boat with a ton of big accomplishements that need to be scrapbooked and no time or money to get it done!

I'm with you. I'm struggling to keep atop of scrapbooking but always get a few hours each month to try to!

I always like those pages that are a month in review especially for baby's first year. Another tip is to make mini albums. You could do a little 6 x 6 album of favorite summer pics, etc. Good luck on keeping up, I am always falling behind!

With 6 of them I can't keep up.
I date each foto carefully, and if necessary write something at the back.
That way I know at least when the pics are taken.
