10 Awesome Ideas for Travel Scrapbook

1) State Inspired

Sometimes your travels are bigger than one city…they take on an entire state!  If you’ve taken an extensive state-wide trip, then one of these travel scrapbook ideas might be for you!

California. The golden state. The sunshine state… Whatever you call it, it’s the backdrop for this creative travel scrapbook layout. We love how this scrapbooker used the memorable shape of the state as the focal point of the page.

And of course, you can do the same! Either as a frame your vacation photos, or as a backdrop for a caption, like this crafter did. We also love the use of photo matting in this layout. From each individual photo, to the “California” title itself, everything on this page pops since it’s mounted on colorful paper!

To recreate this adventure book page, first you’ll need antique map scrapbook paper.

Then, grab your photos and mounting paper, and get started matting and layering! And of course, if you’re one for themed embellishments, then you can’t miss out on this California scrapbooking kit.

It has all the Golden State details you’ve been looking for!

Here’s another approach you can take if you’ve visited an iconic state lately. Split the page into even rectangular windows, and put a photo, embellishment, or text in each one.

Because, even if you didn’t visit NYC, you can still borrow some inspiration from this layout idea. Especially the mini-postcard in the bottom right corner!

To get you started, you’ll want these awesome, bright NY cardstock stickers.

2) Globe Inspired

We know JK Crafters, some of you have explored more than just our 50 states… You’ve traveled the whole entire world!  And if that’s the case for you, then you’ll likely find inspiration from one of these ideas for a travel scrapbook!

If you’re a true world traveler with too many pictures to count, then this adventure book layout’s for you! Because the entire globe is your backdrop, your only limit is your own imagination!

You can include pictures from multiple vacations, or just stick to one amazing adventure. Whatever you choose to do, we’re sure it’ll be FABULOUS!

So, if you want to take a stab at this layout, we have two tools for you. The first is this globe stencil,

3) Road Trip

Planes and trains are cool and all, but road trips are so special, they deserve their own travel scrapbook ideas section!  And that’s exactly what these next two ideas for travel scrapbook layouts offer!

By far this is one of our favorite ideas for travel scrapbook because it’s more than just one layout… It’s a whole series of inspiration! Seriously, click on the link above and see the entirety of this awesome road trip!

We love how it starts with a colorful map of the US, pinpointing exactly where they traveled to. And the beige and brown neutral tone color scheme gives a great “hittin’ the dirt road” kind of vibe!

If this travel scrapbook idea has got you excited, then allow us to help you get started. You’ll definitely want to pick up this US map stencil.

That way you can fill in each state with different color or textured papers or photos. And, you don’t want to miss out on these compass rose stickers either; a staple used many times throughout this scrapbook.

Colorful, exciting, and well-themed are just a few words to describe this travel scrapbook page. We love how the photos were cut and pasted along the road, since they’re actual stops made along the highway! The different road sign embellishments also add an authentic road trip touch.

So, if colorful embellishments are one of your favorite things, check out this antique scrapbook sticker set .

4) Scenic Views

Once in a while, we visit a place that’s so picturesque, one photo simply doesn’t do it justice.  If you have a postcard-worthy picture from your travels, then a scenic view layout might be the way to go!

If you’re a fan of taking the “scenic route,” then you have to check out this adventure book page layout. The bright colors and layering effect make this page fun and exciting to look at.

Plus, this scrapbooker was nice enough to give a step by step breakdown of how they made this layout. Click the link above to see for yourself!

Because well-themed pages mean extra well-thought-out product planning!

Sometimes landscape photos with nobody in them are the best ones you capture from your vacation. And if that’s the case, then give them their own page – where they can really stand out and be appreciated!

So if this travel scrapbook page is speaking to you, make sure you get the same white foam alphabet letters.

Because we’re sure they’ll add some three-dimensionality and personality to your page. And, if you love the way they included a smaller photo in the bottom left-hand corner, like a stamp… Then you have to check out these stamp border die-cuts!

That way you can matte any photo to look like a stamp whenever you want!

5) Traveler’s Collage

Traveled too many places to keep track?  Have wayyyy too many traveling photos to organize or sort through?  If that’s the case for you, nomadic friend, fear no more!  These collage travel scrapbook layouts let you effortlessly display all your exciting adventures at once.

Well, just because you haven’t gone there yet doesn’t mean you can’t scrapbook about it! We love the idea of a “Travel Bucket List” because it kind of works like a vision board. So what are you waiting for? Let’s create your travel dream board so you can make it a reality!

To make this travel scrapbook layout, first, figure out how many places you have on your travel bucket list. Once you know, figure out a way you can evenly arrange them around the page. And then, you’ll need these awesome polaroid frame stickers.
