How-to: Document Vacations

Hi guys, it's Evelyn! I'll admit, I’m not a big traveler.  But, when I traveled to Bali with my family, I made sure every single photo that I took would inspire me in the future! So, I decided to decorate my little spot with my favorite snapshots from our vacation.

I decorated my cork board with my summer photos and layout. Also, I created some envelopes and folders for my memory planner. I even made a Memory Jar! Now when I create a project or memory keep, I can look at my pretty spot and get inspired!

For the cork board, I divided it in half. The left one focuses on the summer photos and the other half is about a summer layout that I already created. For the photo, I pasted the Gold Alphas from DIY Shop 4 in the middle and used bow push pins to attach it. Pretty, right?! I also attached the hotel's poster to the board.

For the right side, I attached the layout using wooden clips and buttons. From there, I created my mood board using my summer photos and layout.

For a fun decorative element, I placed a photo of my son at the beach inside a mason jar. My plan is to fill the jar with keepsakes from the beach such as shells, sand or other items from your trip!

Then, I created two envelopes. One I am using for my memory planner and the second one I am using to send a souvenir to my friend. You can place souvenirs, photos and letters inside the envelopes!

For my memory planner, I created a spread about the first summer vacation with my little family. I put some travel icons such as bags, tickets, and cameras inside the plastic pocket and decorated it with puffy stickers and sequins. So, when you see it, you will see the other photo peeking through.

I printed out a photo of my hubby and son and decorated it with some stickers and clear ephemera from Shimelle.

For the next page, I pasted a photo of my son enjoying his first ice cream with my hubby. I decorated it using puffy stickers and washi tape.

I created two photo folders to hold summer photos using the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board. Also, you can attach it to your memory planner!

Last, but not least, I used the pink card as an insert. I wrote down some summer memories and added it to my memory planner!
