day 1 | vacation week

Standard

What seems like weeks but was probably months ago, I was chatting with Melissa and she made asked how my Disney World album was going. I laughed and said something like “there’s a few pages in there still to go…” She mentioned that she scheduled herself to do a week of blogging about vacation scrapbooking, and asked if I wanted to join in the fun. I said YES – because it would give me some inspiration to get more done AND the chance to blog about my #1 favorite subject to scrapbook: vacations.

Today to get things started I have a video (about 7min long) where I am talking about my “big vacation” scrapbooking methods and the album and page protectors I use.

Please do come back for more – I will share new layouts, tutorials, and materials using my unfinished Disney World trip/album as my inspiration all week. While I’m “going Disney” – the tips, ideas, and methods I use could be applied to any subject, event, or vacation. I hope you enjoy. Here are links to the album type and page protectors I use:

Scrapbook.com has a wonderful selection of the albums + page protectors I like to use.

If you have any questions, comments, etc. about my video, or vacation scrapbooking in general please feel free to email me or leave a comment here. Also – make sure you visit Melissa’s blog for vacation scrapbooking awesomeness! Love that girl’s style, and she’s been to some pretty cool places too.

happy crafting!

  1. What a great idea. I got some of these page protectors quite my accident but know I have a great idea on how to use them!!! Thanks for some great tips and ideas!!

  2. I love your idea of combining finished LOs with the divided page protectores. That makes so much sense to me. Looking forward to a week of fun and inspiration.

  3. This is exactly what I do with all my photos (Stacy Julian LOM style). You can view the photos, without fingerprints, before they are scrapbooked. Having some extras from a vacation is good because like you mentioned you can give one to your kids when they need one or you can mix them on other non-travel layouts.

  4. I wasn’t as young as you when I started scrapbooking but I too started scrapbooking holidays (vacations) as it was before DS was born. And they’re still one of my fave things to scrapbook. I have sets of page protectors from WRMK which are very similar to the AC ones – love them for big trips!
