    Default Scrapbooking Your Caching Adventures

    I know I知 not the only geocacher who visits our site who loves geocaching and scrapbooking. So, here痴 a place where we can share our two passions.

    I知 not an expert at photography nor scrapping (nor caching, for that matter) but I値l share some of my pages in hopes that you値l be encouraged to post some of yours.


    Yes, I知 aware that some of you have no interest in putting some scraps of paper together with some photos in an album yet you can still enjoy a visual presentation of caches you have also found, or hidden, beautiful locations you have discovered, and geopals you care about.


    Here are some basic ideas to get you started if you致e never scrapped a page before. Your ideas and comments will make my day - especially if you post some of your pages.
    Appreciate everyone who has ever come into your life- for some come in as a blessing and others come in as a lesson.

    Telling the Story

    Sometimes you might want a page with few embellishments; letting the photos speak for themselves.

    Other times, you may be in the mood for a more complex presentation.

    Often the photograph will encourage one style or the other. Compare these two pages, for instance. One is quite simple; expressing the beautiful simplicity of the scene. The other has a lot going on – just like the conversations at the celebratory party event.

    Adding More Detail
    You may want to add even more information or visual appeal to your page. This can be done in a variety of ways. Some of my favorite methods are:

    Adding the GC number
    Adding the Cache description
    Adding your log
    Adding the logs of other cachers
    Adding your handwritten or typed notes

    Adding Other Embellishments
    There are, of course, many ways of adding your own personal touches to your pages. Consider, for example, adding some of these:

    ticket stubs, trail maps, brochures, embroidery, folded paper, cutouts or stickers

    Any of these items will add interest to your pages and will be a great reminder later of why you enjoyed the cache or the cache location and why you chose to scrapbook that particular cache hunt.

    A Big Story
    There are times when one page simply will not tell the big story of a particular cache, or cache location, or caching trip, or cache event. Go ahead and make two or more pages - you'll be happy you did when looking at your album in years to come. When other cachers look at your work, it will be obvious that this was an outstanding memory for you. Scrapping is, after all, for sharing.
