SCRAPBOOKING TRAVEL & VACATION self-paced class by Debbie Hodge
One of the biggest challenges to getting vacations scrapbooked is the large number of photos a trip may yield. In Scrap Your Travel & Vacation, you get 5 lessons in pdf form that provide:
strategies for organizing and culling travel photos;
a page planner and approaches for telling several kinds of travel stories;
color strategies (not schemes, but strategies for coming up with schemes);
design approaches;
and sketches. (The sketches come in bundles with 6 sketches per bundle, and 5 bundles total. Each bundle of sketches provides design unity while giving the variety you need to scrapbook varying numbers and types of photos.)
As you consider ways to scrap various travel and vacation photos, you'll mix and match a series of sketch bundles and travel color schemes to scrap a variety of travel pages efficiently and beautifully.

The lessons cover the following kinds of vacations/trips:

The Weekend Getaway
A weekend getaway can be as much about the company as the destination. It might be a short trip to hang out with friends, find some romance, see an exhibit, or just take a break from your typical weekend routines. With fewer photos from fewer activities (than you’d have with bigger trips), the scrapbooking of weekend getaways can focus on impressions, stories, companions, and moments.

The Road Trip
A “road-trip” type vacation is not necessarily a literal trip in a car on a road or highway. The “road-trip” vacation is one that takes you to a series of what may be quite different locales over the course of one trip. The road-trip is a story that’s well-suited to being told in chronological order (more or less).

Being There
Some trips take you to one locale. There’s limited sightseeing on this type of vacation, and it’s more about enjoying place, people, and activities. Examples of this kind of vacation include:
visiting family
staying at a lakehouse/beachhouse
going camping
the ski slopes
Going On Tour"
The “On Tour” travel experience is one in which many of the details are decided ahead of time–and, in fact, taken care of for you–so that you can relax as well as experience new sights and experiences. There are many ways to go “on tour” from taking a cruise to going on guided hike and camping adventure. You might take a bus tour through Europe or go on safari in Africa.The photos you take while on tour will include those of the sights you visit as well of those of the aspects of the tour experience (i.e., lodging, people, routines). A combination approach that mixes chronological telling of the trip with select subject pages would work well for this kind of travel scrapbooking.
Themed Destinations
The “themed” vacation is one that takes you into a created world where you are doing more than viewing, where you’re entering into and experiencing a manufactured reality. You may have gone on a Disney vacation, visited a historic settlement where you’re re-enacting the way things were done in the past, travelled to Santa’s Village, or many other variations on the themed destination. The photos from a themed vacation can cover a lot of territory, and they don’t usually require a chronological telling. Aspects of a large theme/amusement park may include: characters, rides, performances, events, posed portraits, sights and more.
