I don’t scrapbook 99% of our camping adventures. Well, not in the traditional sense. Last year when we dove into the adventure of trailer ownership and campground fun I got a 6×8 Simple Stories Album, some Project Life and other journaling cards, and I also take a pen or two on the road. The cards are right there blank in the page protectors – I just pull out an empty page protector + cards of my choice and work!
While out camping I write out journaling cards and tuck ephemera in here and there.
Back at home I add printed photos (just print 4×6 and crop if needed), and embellish if spaces are left over. In addition to divided pages, there are also simple (so you can make a 6×8 page) protectors too. Those I don’t use too often, unless I want a title page of sorts.
What works great about this system for me is that it’s quick (I caught up on a 10 day trip once home in less than an hour!), it lets met tell stories of each day and get a TON of detail – everything from our campsite #s to our meals made to stops we enjoyed, and it takes all pressure off to “scrapbook” these adventures.
Once in a while a page gets made for the annual album, but it’s only if inspired + I have a lot of photos. Otherwise, we just look at and enjoy the simple and functional scrapbook that has also become a resource for referencing past successes (and fails!).
