My daughter's hobby is photography. On a recent vacation out west, she used the following tip to keep track of her photos. As we entered a new state, she would do one of the following:

  1. Take a picture of the "Welcome to" state sign.

  2. Take a picture of the road map for that state.

  3. Or use sign language to indicate the initial of the state and take a picture of her hand. For example, she would make a signed "M" when we entered Montana and take a picture of that.
Then she would know what state the next photos belonged in for her album.

If you don't want to put bulky items in your scrapbook, scan them and cut them out. My daughter did this with some game coins, and some Mexican coins, from our cruise earlier this month.

Tips from the ThriftyFun community about collecting items for your travel scrapbook. Post your own ideas here.

Use Brochures In Scrapbooking

While on vacation, pick up free brochures advertising 'things to do' in that area - and then correlate them with your photos for that vacation page. They often include maps, big headlines, backdrops, etc. and other fun things that will save you money later!

What To Save And Photograph While Traveling

I put the maps and brochures (be sure to pick up 2 of each, in case of information on each side) and arrange them in my scrapbook along with the trip we made. Because they are not acid free, I make sure that they are on a separate page or on the same page but well away from the pictures I took.

Brochures will sometimes give you a different angle of the building or area than you were able to get when there. The information I brought back from Cuba last year went into my vacation scrapbook in the first few pages as an introduction to where we had gone.

I also had a Cuban tea when in Cuba. Each time, I saved the little paper tags on the tea bags and when doing the scrapbook used them on the edge of the page to accent the page. Take pictures of your waiter, door room number, people in the resort that you interacted with frequently. When they are in your book later, it makes your pages more alive and personal instead of only beach and scenery pictures. And have fun scrapbooking!

For our 10th year Wedding Anniversary, my husband and I took a romantic vacation to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I like to pick a theme for each event's scrapbook or section. For this one, I used a map of Mexico that I had saved out of a National Geographic insert.

When you go on a vacation, be sure to collect any informational flyers, brochures or postcards about the places you visit. This is an easy way to display a schedule of events, amenities or background information on your scrapbooking page.

These pages were based on a trip we took to a resort called the Kalahari. Everything there had a Safari theme, so I made sure the scrapbook pages reflected that.


The key to any good scrapbook page is layering.
