For people whose crafty skills are limited to getting airline upgrades, Travel Scrapbooks: Creating Albums of Your Trips and Adventures might inspire vagabonds to keep their travel photos and mementos somewhere nicer than that old shoebox in the back of the closet or the memory card in their digital camera. This book features real scrapbooks from crafters across the country, showcasing their travel photos, journaling and design skills in albums about trips to the zoo, Niagara Falls, the great cities of Europe, Sea World, a local carnival and many more adventures. The scrapbooks are all shapes, sizes and formats including round books and a book in a vintage-looking suitcase and use tons of different techniques, tools and scrapbooking supplies (resources are helpfully listed in the back so readers can recreate a technique). Tips on such topics as travel photography and using souvenirs in projects are included. Some of the pages featured here may be a little intimidating to new scrapbookers, but crafters of all levels will surely be inspired.
