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.
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.
