I’m still working on trying to organize the old photos of the kids that I have stored in boxes right now. Some of them didn’t turn out very well and I’ll toss them because they really aren’t worth keeping. But there are quite a few that I want to put into my Project Life scrapbook. Product provided.

Family Vacation Scrapbook Ideas
I’ve noticed that I took a lot of pictures on our family vacations and day trips so I have decided to share a few family vacation scrapbook ideas with you. Most people take more photos on vacation than they do when they’re at home having a regular day of work, dishes and dirty laundry.
I decided to work on some photos I took when my daughter was about two and a half. It’s hard to believe she’s 22 now and these have sat in a box for almost 20 years. Back then, photos were an odd size compared to today’s but I can easily cut them down so they fit in the Project Life pages.
For this layout, I am using Stampin’ Up! Project Life Lets Get Away Card Collection and Accessory Pack. I love the versatility of this collection. There are cards that are air travel themed, car travel, hot air balloon, boat travel, bicycles, etc. You could easily use it for just about any vacation.
My favorite thing about the Stampin’ Up! Project Life pages is that you can move things around. I originally thought that I wanted the quote page on the bottom but then as I started to add the photos, I realizes I wanted to say something about the quarry in that spot instead. I just slipped the card out of the page and moved it somewhere else so I could put a card in that had room for writing on it. I didn’t have to worry about messing up glue or anything else by moving something.
I really love scrapbooking but I need it to be quick and easy. I had this whole page done – including finding the photos – in under an hour. You can buy a collection and then use the different themed elements to put a page together. Or you can buy the cards and accessory packs separately. There are cards, stickers, Washi tape, frames and all sorts of accents you can use. You don’t have to trace and cut out anything at all. You just peel the stickers off and use them.
