When my daughter was baptized a few months ago, I looked at every baptism memory book available in stores. Every single one. And for one reason or another, none of them seemed to fit what my daughter and I were looking for. That was, of course, when I buckled down and started designing!
I loved the idea that we could customize our own baptism memory book. We could choose the pages that we wanted, we could choose a color to fit my daughter’s personality (in her case, teal!), and we could save money by printing ourselves. We filled it with only pages we needed, and we filled it with only memories and photos that she wanted. And it made an awesome memory book for her to record her baptism memories! Since we placed the printed pages in a simple 3-ring binder, there is now room left for her to add other handouts, thoughts, or scriptures that she wants to save from Primary or Activity Days. It has become a truly personalized baptism book – just for her.
Because these baptism memory book printable pages proved very successful for us, I added them to my Etsy shop! And yes, I added a few extra color options – just in case your child’s favorite color isn’t teal! These PDF printable pages are available in four different colors (purchase once and receive all four color options). Then print as many of each page as you need and fill it in with the memories and photos you want. Place the printed pages in a 8.5″ x 11″ binder or album, or have them spiral bound into a book at your favorite copy shop.
These PDF printable Baptism Memory Books include a title/picture page, pages for journaling and recording special facts about the baptism, pages for thoughts, memories and testimonies, informational pages on the baptismal covenant and the fourth article of faith, a guest sign-in page, and blank pages (use for placing extra photos of the special day, attach the baptism program, record extra thoughts or feelings, or attach special notes or cards from family and friends). Print the pages you need, add the memories you want, and Voila! – a personalized baptism memory book.
