Hey everyone. I'm new to both this site and to scrapbooking in general. For Christmas this year, I'm making my best friend a baby's first year scrapbook for her son, who is also my Godson. I have some ideas and have been working on it so far but I wanted to see if anyone had some ideas for titles for the pages. I thought about just putting one month, 2 months etc, but also thought it would be nice to have unique titles featuring the number of months old he is. Like 1 month at a time for month one, and 9 months in, 9 months out for 9 months. I'm not creative so if anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

The third month can be "end of 1st quarter" (if your friend has any business background).

If you're not doing the book chronologically you can put together some pages to show progress like "A year of fashion" with an outfit per month.

Hi Irish53669. Welcome . You will get lots of ideas here. Lots of great talent.

My bestfriend made me a book like your talking about. Go to my gallery and you can see it. Maybe you could do something like it. You can find similar books like this here on scrapbook.com or at your local craft store.

Welcome to Scrapbooking and this site!
I've made several baby's 1st year books.
You might think of milestones as titles such as:
1st Bath aka Bubble Fun
1st Smile
1st Laugh aka Giggles
Being held by family aka Intro's
Check out the Gallery and Links shared above.
Hope that helps!

I have done a lot of baby books in the last few years, if you look at my gallery I have a few titles that might help. Like six months of smiles, always on the move @ eight months

I HAVE A SOLUTION !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-
all you need to do is look up the quotes section and find teh Baby section -- they have tons of ideas for boys and girls !!!!
something like Already two or First month togther or getting to know you is good just remember GOOD IDEA---
if you use a cutesy title and are left wondering where do i actually place the age ?? easy use it in:
a. the journaling on the page
b. do it as a sub title under the cutesy title
c. use a date stamp somewhere on the page !
GOOD LUCK AND TAKE CARE !!
