Europe Trip Srapbooking #1

I've finally made a start on scrapbooking our trip to Europe last fall! This 14-day trip will fill an entire album!

I began by choosing a few elements to use throughout the album - kraft cardstock, cork letter stickers, and small wood veneer embellishments. My plan is that every page will begin with a kraft cardstock background and each new location or main attraction will have a title with cork letter stickers, The small wood embellishments will be on various layouts throughout the album. The title page will be created last using pieces of the other papers I'll be including in each section.

The first section begins with the itinerary I created for the trip, then showcases photos, memorabilia and journaling as we set out from Dallas and arrived in London. In addition to the kraft, I used a cream cardstock on the pages in this section.

On several of the pages, I drew a border with the brown pen that I'm using for my journaling.

I have a variety of travel themed stickers (some newly purchased, some from my stash) that I'll be including throughout the album as well.

When you look at the next layout, you'll see that the handwriting is different - I'm having Robbie add journaling at various points to ensure his perspective is included.

I've had all these little wood veneer embellishments (stars, cameras, arrows, hearts, keys, etc) in my stash for some time, so I'm excited to be using them to bring some cohesiveness to this album.

Other than the papers and travel-themed stickers that I've purchased specifically for this project, I'll be utilizing items from my stash as I go. On the page below, I used four Project Life cards for journaling and embellishments.

So, two days of memories recorded … twelve to go! Have you scrapped any big trips lately?


  1. I haven't done any scrapbooking in quite some time, although it's on the to-do list every week. I love travel scrapbooks. This one looks like it's off to a good start!

  2. What a great start. Looks like you kept very good notes during the trip, which is a wonderful way to relive that adventure.

  3. Looks like fun - and I like using up stash too :)


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
