Travel Scrapbooking Tips {100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas! Day 53}

Scrapbooking your summer travels? Here’s another scrapbook idea for you: take photos of the plants, flowers and other natural surroundings in your travel locations! People almost always take photos of the tourist attractions, but you may not think to take a photo of a tree or flower you wouldn’t see at home.

For my the Aruba vacation scrapbook I made back in 2003, I designed these scrapbook pages using photos, postcards and magazine clippings all showcasing the beautiful plants and landscapes of Aruba.

Be sure to document the names of the plants and where they were, if you can find out some information about them.

By-the-way, the postcard shown in the first image is inserted to a clear mini page protector I made for it. I didn’t want to attach it to the page, because it has some information about the cool Divi Divi trees found in Aruba. For more ideas about using postcards in travel scrapbooks, see this post: Don’t Forget the Postcards! {100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas! Day 19}

    Looks good, Jess! Good idea about the plants. I must admit that I usually forget to find out the names of the plants we shoot!

      Thanks Brenda! It can be really tough to find out about the local plants when traveling. I usually ask around first, and if no one knows, I can sometimes find out about them on postcards or in magazines or books in tourist shops. I have also had some success looking them up online once I get home. Not everyone would want to put in that much effort, but I really love plants and flowers :)!
