Greetings all -
I'm completely new to scrapbooking, and I'm working on a book right now of pictures and memorabilia from a trip to Europe. Most of my scrapbooking will be about travel and trips, as I have compulsively saved tons of memorabilia from nearly all my trips (brochures, postcards, patches, stickers, maps, tickets, receipts, etc).
I'm having trouble figuring out the best way to approach paper memorabilia such as brochures and maps. Some brochures are double-sided or fold-out, and I'd like them to still be readable to someone looking at the scrapbook.
I'm working on a layout for pictures from a historic tower, for example. I have pictures chosen and cropped, and colors picked. The brochure for the tower is fantastic. It's beautifully colored, fold-out, with history and information everywhere. The simplest solution I've come up with to add it to the layout is to put it into a pocket. I even made an accordion pocket for it.
Do you have advice and examples of other ways to display these types of memorabilia? I don't want to always use a pocket.
