In 2012 my daughter Nora was stillborn. I only had a few mementos of the short time we spent together and wanted a way to display all of those treasures. I didn’t just want a memory box as I knew I wouldn’t open it often once it was packed away. Instead I gathered all of the trinkets and treasures she left behind; pictures, lock of hair, hospital bracelet, footprints, handprints, and other reminders of her and decided to ask Nora’s grandmother, my mom, to create a baby loss memorial scrapbook.
Once I received it, I knew that other grieving parents like me would want one. So I asked my mom to create baby loss memorial scrapbook kits for others to add their own special reminders and treasures to, and that is how this shop came to be. Scrapbook Kit Includes
- 8” x 8” clothbound expandable scrapbook - 20 pages with page protectors - 10 double sided pages of gender specific paper based on order (varies with availability) - 3 premade pages included in the double-sided pages - 1 page of baby loss specific quotes - Announcement page included in the double-sided pages - 15 baby embellishments (‘baby’, rattle, etc.) - 10 double sided strips for embellishing - 2 vellum envelopes for hospital bracelet and hair - 50 photo mounting squares
Colors to choose from: pink (girl) or blue (boy). Please specify in your order/e-mail your book preferences.
Thank you so much for creating these scrapbooks! I spent 30 minutes in a craft store looking for a book for a baby that never came home-- instead I ended up crying in the store and leaving.
I came across your story while searching online for this exact kind of scrapbook. I've begun putting my book together for my son Gabriel, some days I can work for hours and some days I can't bear to open it. 💙
I'm very grateful for finding your little Etsy shop, I would definitely buy again and will pass on the word to other loss mom's!

I'm so glad Lindsey and her family decided to offer these memory books. I went to my local craft store before finding these, and was heartbroken to find that they really didn't offer any supplies about loss. Thanks!
