There is no denying it, celebrating your camping trips with a camping scrapbook is part of the fun. The theme is fresh, full of great outdoors imagery, and it's exactly the type of album that you will enjoy reliving the moments through decades later.
So whether your camping trip involves a luxury RV, a modest size tent, or rolling a swag out under the stars, preserve those great memories with one of these camping travel scrapbook ideas.
The photograph used for this camping scrapbook layout was from a recent camping trip through Central Australia. For those of you who don't know, the distances are vast between towns in this part of the world, and with 504 miles (812 km) between towns on our chosen route, this meant camping on some of the massive cattle farms that offer fuel and facilities to travelers.
It was a great moment as the kids had just collected a bag full of pretty rocks from a nearby dry riverbed, and I was able to sit down with my feet up for nearly an hour while they sorted them into favorites.
Putting this camping scrapbook layout together was easy and it's my favorite design from this selection of six camping scrapbook ideas.
I started by cutting out my DIY printables and the strips of floral paper to go along the top and bottom of the camping scrapbook layout. I used a ruler and pencil to mark out the floral paper strips before cutting.
Before gluing them down, I spent some time shifting them around my page alongside my photograph until I was happy with the layout. Once I was happy, I quickly adhered it to the cardstock with a gluestick before either a child or cat could come along and mess up my work.
It happens more than I'd like!

The photograph in this camping scrapbook layout was from a hiking trip at Carnarvon Gorge National Park in Australia. There were quite a few fun moments, including this one where we got to rock hop across the creek to avoid getting wet shoes. I'm pretty sure I ended up sacrificing my dry shoes so that I could help get the kids across with dry feet. It's a mom's life!
I nearly always begin by cutting out all of my elements and this camping scrapbook layout was no exception. I used a ruler and pencil to mark out the yellow banners and just eyeballed the "V" shape at the end when it came to cutting.
Once all of my pieces were cut out, I re-arranged them on the page to make sure they looked good and then glued them down with a glue stick. I had originally intended to use 6 trees and place them on the end of the yellow strips however they printed larger than expected so I had a slight change of plan and only used 5 to fill in the page, which turned out A-Okay.
This photograph was taken on a family camping trip to Townsville in Queensland, Australia. We visited an animal sanctuary and spent a great morning feeding and learning about the native animals, including this cute kangaroo who was only too happy to be our friend when she realized we had a bag of grain for her.
Although I really wanted to use this photograph, I was also really out of ideas and wasted way too much time just staring at my photo and a blank piece of cardstock. I ended up sourcing a layout idea for this project from the book, 525 New & Advanced Scrapbooking Sketches. This layout sketch (shown below) can be found on page 21. The idea for the title was found in the book 10,000 Instant Scrapbook Page Titles in the camping section.
As that I was following a scrapbook layout sketch and knew in advance where the elements were going on the page, I didn't pre-cut every item. Rather, I just created what I needed as I went along.
Beginning with the photograph, I used washi tape to both create a border around it and adhere it to the page. Moving clockwise onto the banners, I changed these up by adding a strip of washi tape on top and shortening them so they didn't reach the edges of the cardstock base. The banners themselves were outlined with a pencil and ruler before cutting and I just eyeballed the cutting when it came to the washi tape.
Next, I cut and adhered the orange piece of cardstock and set to work on the title. I handwrote the title with a silver paint pen, using a letter stencil for the first letter of each word only. This section was completed by cutting some circles with a craft paper punch and adhering them to the top left corner of the orange cardstock.
A cute woodland-themed pattern was chosen for the rectangle piece in the top right of this camping scrapbook layout and the bunting was made from scrap twine and washi tape cut into triangles.
