Scrapbooking while Travelling
Since we have been on the road I've only done a few pages of scrapbooking. I worked out that you need to be quite organised & prepare before you leave home. I used a "work in progress" folder" in which I put supplies for each page. First I chose the photos I wanted to scrap, then the paper & embellishments to go with them. I sometimes have an idea in mind & will draw a quick sketch to remember that idea. It also helps me to know what I need to put in my mini kit & what other supplies I might need. eg. inks, premade Cricut shapes etc. I managed to fit what I needed into a craft trolley bag & a shoulder bag-even though they were very full & wieghed a ton! Along the way I found I needed a couple of extra supplies so I would make the layout as much as I could & then waited until we came across a scrapbook shop. Before we reached the next town I would Google where the scrapbook shops were so we could stop there. Its good to see the different variety of products that are out there. Its like being a kid in a lolly shop! My tool kit was quite basic with a cutter, adhesives & a couple of fancy edge scissors. I also had a folder with unmounted stamps, inkpads & ink. Admittedly I have bought paper that I didn't really need but thought they would go nicely with some of the photos I have taken but haven't printed yet.
