The baby days go so fast, don’t they? One minute you’re holding a tiny newborn and then you blink and it’s their first birthday and they are trying to take their first wobbly steps. Finding ways to cherish and remember the baby days is something that is really important to me. There are lots of ways you can get creative and make special keepsakes for your child and document your most precious family memories. Design Bundles is a website full of digital graphics that you can use to create all sorts of wonderful things, including templates to help you create all types of baby keepsakes. If you want to get creative, here are five ideas on how to make baby keepsakes using Design Bundles.
Creating beautiful baby keepsakes using Design Bundles
Baby’s first year scrapbook – Scrap booking is the perfect way to document your baby’s first year in the world. You can stick in as many photos as you want, print your baby’s hands and feet onto the pages and glue in your baby’s hospital name tag and scan photos too. If you want to make an extra eye catching and unique scrap book, there are lots of printable graphics and templates available from Design Bundles.
Nursery wall art – It is nice to have photos of your children up around the house but wall art is another way to jazz up the walls of your baby’s nursery. Design Bundles is full of graphics, photos, illustrations and other digital imagery you can use to create your own completely unique art for your baby’s bedroom.
Crochet a baby blanket – There is nothing more adorable than a baby in knitwear. There are so many cute baby clothes, blankets and toys you can make from a ball or two of yarn. Handmade garments are really special and are usually the items of clothing that are held on to and cherished as the years pass. There are crochet pattern templates available to download from Design Bundles, and also lots of video tutorials on YouTube to help you learn all the different stitches. I made Tilly a newborn hat and a blanket and I know I am going to keep them both forever, they are really special to me.
Embroidered baby clothes – If knitting isn’t your thing but you want to make clothes for your baby, why not look into embroidery? There are lots of adorable embroidery design * patterns available on Design Bundles. You could create a special embroidered baby gro or blanket. You could even customise a piece of clothing for a special occasion like Christmas or Easter, something you can look back on fondly for years to come.
Write a parenting blog – Blogging is a great way to document family life. Not only do you have a place to keep all your family photos, you can also write about your experiences and share your motherhood journey with other like minded parents. When your children are older they can look at your blog to see what life was like when they were little, a blog is like a much more detailed and personal digital version of the baby photo albums your mum gets out every once in a while. I love getting creative with my blog and creating pretty imagery and Pinterest graphics, as well as writing of course.
The Design Bundles website was established in 2016 and offers thousands of digital graphics and templates at low prices, helping you to design and create baby keepsakes and much more.There are lots of ways you can use different graphics and imagery to create both digital and physical keepsakes for your baby. I hope this post has given you some inspiration and provided you with ideas on how to document your family life and the important moments from your child’s early years. I have three children and they are all growing so fast, I am trying my best to cherish these days while they are little. I have blankets I have made that I hope my children will hold dear throughout their lives, I am making Tilly a scrapbook for her first year and I of course have this blog where I have documented our family life over the past five years.
