If you're looking for creative ways to display your prints, look no further! We've been a fan of Sarah Beth Moore, aka @newleafwriter for some time now. She is a prolific reader and journaler and creates stunning scrapbooks using custom calligraphy, vintage ephemera, and of course, Social Print Studio prints.
Here is some scrapbook inspiration from Sarah's Instagram that will get you reaching for your notebook...
Naturally, the first thing you'll want to put in your travel scrapbook is some Classic Matte Prints of the lovely photos you took, but they aren't the only thing to include. Add vintage ephemera from the place you visited, postcards, music, ticket stubs, pressed flowers, whatever!
Take your handwriting to the next level by experimenting with calligraphy. Beautiful lettering can make headings stand out and will give you a new appreciation for the written word. For a good calligraphy pen, try the Pilot Parallel Calligraphy Pen set.
Maps are a beautiful visual reminder of the place you've just been and have a unique way of triggering memories. You can also just stick the Google Maps Directions you printed of how to get from your hotel to the nearest coffee shop.
One of the best parts of travel is trying new cuisines. You probably have a lot of food photos from your latest vacation to print, but if you're resourceful, you can also include the menu, restaurant card, or sundry food smears for a richer textured scrapbook.
Reading fiction about the places you visit can provide some context and charge regular locations with new and magical significance. Also, taking photos of interesting buildings and places is a great source of creative inspiration when you're back home.
While double-sided tape can secure your prints seamlessly to your book, using colored or patterned tape can create an eclectic mixed-media affect. This Washi Tape Set has many interesting and versatile patterns. Alternatively, you can do away with the tape altogether and print some custom Stickers from your photos.
Always an option: take a staycation and document your favorite books from the comfort of your bed.
