I’ve been thinking a lot about these scrapbook pages recently as I’ve signed up for a class over here all about travel story telling. I adore Ali’s classes, always get so much from them and come away inspired and ready.
The first week is walking through all of her past albums and then looking at those trips that haven’t got completed stories ‘in the books’ yet. She is encouraging us to think about the way we have told travel stories in the past, what has worked and what hasn’t.
When I think back I’ve used lots of ways to tell our travel tales. Mini books were a go to choice for many years. They were very popular in scrapbook land and inspiration was on every scrappy blog. I also used travel notebooks from Paperchase to journal on the go and then add all the ephemera and photos in when I got home. There are a couple of smaller sized scrapbook albums dedicated to holidays and most recently of course I have made 12 x 12 layouts to put in an album for that trip.
It has been good to think back, look back and remember all those places we have been and celebrate the stories I have told about the adventures. It has also made me happy to realise that for right now and for the stories about last years travels I’m happy to carry on with the 12 x 12 pages (which is good really because I have at least ten pages already made!)
Here We Go
Here’s the story –
We packed up and had a quick breakfast and got loaded into the car for the journey to the Eclipse. It was so very exciting indeed. What wasn’t exciting was the traffic! But we were off again on the next phase of this crazy adventure. Bring it on!
Looking forward to more from the class and sharing more of these stories.
