I returned from a holiday in Malta. And as usual, I’ve gathered items to create another Travel Scrapbook.
As I mentioned in my previous blog, at one point I have so many of these – boarding passes, travel tickets, museum tickets, business cards, postcards, brochures, maps, receipts… I didn’t exactly know what to do with them that I started to throw them away until I thought that why not try scrapbooking.
The process of scrapbooking has been so fun for me. Venice was the first scrapbook that I immediately created as soon as I returned from my holiday. I would really love to be able to put the scrapbook together right away and to cherish the memories in one place. In the past, I had all the items scattered everywhere for a long time which made scrapbooking less enjoyable. As I look at the items I’ve collected during the trip, I can already picture in my head how I will be creating my Malta Scrapbook and I’m really excited how this will turn out. I guess I’m getting better at this each time. 🙂
Do you have a travel scrapbook that you just finished creating? Please comment and share for inspiration. Thanks!
As people are heading back from their holidays, I received some questions about my travel scrapbook. So I decided to record another flip through of my Japan Scrapbook from 2018 travel with my family.
As you can see, I’m using a cheap A6 clear binder. I like the A6 size as it fits well the boarding passes and most of the brochures. I also find this clear binder aesthetically pleasing. I created a cover which is like a boarding pass. Then I also illustrated the summary of the travel digitally and printed it out. I also made my own postcard. The binder also includes an envelope where I placed some of the photos I’ve printed out and an origami doll from the guesthouse in Kyoto. Then I have the boarding passes, postcards I bought, museum tickets, brochures, business cards of where we stayed, travel tickets and leaflets. I’m still finding more items from the travel and I’m adding them to the scrapbook. So I’m happy for the space this binder has and the ability to move the items. I know that I have many origami cranes from the capsule hotel in Tokyo and I will also include them in this scrapbook using another envelope.
I hope this short clip has given you more ideas on how to create a travel scrapbook. Please don’t hesitate to show me what you have done with your scrapbook. I’m sure I will get a lot of inspiration from you!
