10 Ways to Use Maps in Your Scrapbooks
On the 10th of each month I am participating in Shimelle Laine’s 10 Things.
I love maps. I collect old maps, including road maps and globes. My collection is quite small and I am rather selective, but I do enjoy looking at old maps. I also use maps when I scrapbook. They are one of my favorite things to save from a trip to include in a travel album.
I am really excited to see maps as a trend in the scrapbook industry. I occasionally buy pattern paper with a map theme, but have more fun using actual maps. I want my maps to be meaningful in some way. In fact, I have several sheets of pattern paper maps, but rarely use them unless they are of the destination I am scrapbooking.
Today I thought I would share with you ten layouts using maps. Warning: this is an image heavy post.
This is a piece of pattern paper. I used the arrows to point to our destination.
This is map I picked up at the zoo. I folded it to fit in the album and added some photos to it.
This is a portion of a map we used on one of our drives along the ocean. I cut it to show as much of our route as possible.
I used this map as my background paper.
This is actually the cover of my album. The album was purchased this way.
This is a map from a museum. I attached the map to the outside of my page protector so that a viewer can actually open it up when looking through the album.
This is the map I carried with me the entire trip. I added a clear pocket to the page protector so that you can pull the map out to look at it.
I used smaller maps for pieces of my background on this layout.
This map is pretty much the focal point on this page. I spent about 10 days on a study abroad trip at this destination. to t
This is one of my layouts of travel memorabilia leftovers. I usually end up with a couple of pages like this in most travel albums. It's the perfect way to showcase a complete map.
