Tour Scrapbooking

Tour Scrapbooking

There’s something about going to see an artist you love play live that just fills me with such joy and excitement. I can’t think of a better feeling than being stood with my best friend, surrounded by so many happy people all there for the same reason, dancing and singing at the top of my lungs, to my favourite songs by my favourite artists.. it really does give me such a buzz. I’m incredibly lucky that I manage to see so many live artists perform, and I always end up with such amazing tickets too. Sometimes, they can be pretty costly but for the feeling I get when I’m there, it’s absolutely worth every single penny!

Tour Scrapbooking: The Wanted

Tour scrapbooking is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Putting all of my memories together in one place is just the perfect idea however I had not a single clue how to start. I jotted down ideas in a notebook of everything I wanted in this book and then set out to get the basics of what I needed.

Tour Scrapbooking: Meeting Hometown

Printing pictures of when I met Hometown, the supporting act for The Vamps.

Seeing as though I experience so many tours, I’ve kept pretty much every single one of my tickets other than the ones mum was in charge of when I was younger, and instead of them being stuck in a bag in my wardrobe (as I do with everything because I am such a bad hoarder), I decided to do something with them that I can cherish forever whilst adding to it! I ventured in to Hobbycraft and picked up a huge Scrapbook, pens, card and stickers and set to work.

How I started

  • Sort through all your tickets etc and put them into Chronological order. This way, you won’t miss anything out and you can start from the very beginning and work your way through all your memories!
  • For older gigs you went to, check online to see if you can find the Set lists for them. This part took me ages and I had to search google, listen to countless fans youtube videos, and watch back my own videos to make sure I had the correct setlist. Although it was quite time consuming, I like seeing which songs artists performed and when as I tend to see a lot of artists multiple times (Im looking at you, The Vamps, 22 times and counting..). I also made a note of who the support acts too as it’s nice to remember who you saw!
  • Go through and find all your pictures from each event, if you have any! I had so many from each show, that I narrowed it down to a select few I liked and got them printed out at Printiki! It made everything so much easier for me, as I didn’t have to worry about finding glossy paper and cutting down all my images etc, they were all the perfect size to pop straight into my scrapbook.

    I had these pictures printed as they are both times we met The Wanted, and the first time we ever met The Vamps!

Personal>perfection

It’s important to remember with Scrapbooking that every page does not have look perfect, in fact far from it! At first, I pulled out countless pages because one word was wonkier than the other or one letter was a different size, but in the end I decided to wing it and I actually love that things aren’t perfect, and it’s all done free hand by myself. On the picture below, I decided to choose one of my favourite songs that the Vamps sung on your and fill the blank spaces by writing all the lyrics to the song. It’s a great way to fill dead space without filling it full of stickers etc!Tour Scrapbooking: The Vamps

As you can see this book is very much work in progress, but I’m super enjoying reliving all those moments at every single one of the events I’ve attended! I’ll be adding more to this book as the year goes by as I already have a few concerts coming up this year which is when The Vamps go on tour.. shock!

      Thank you! It’s time consuming but definitely worth it!xx

    This is such a lovely idea! I would have TOTALLY taken this up when I was in my teens because I was always at gigs. I honestly can’t count, nor remember the amount of bands / artists I’ve seen live! And I always used to keep my tickets and buy a t-shirt at the gig itself. I really wish I could continue that but my anxiety would pretty much prevent me going to a gig now (too hot, too crowded – my hearts going just thinking about it). But this is a lovely way to document your gigs and keep the memories <3

    I wish I’d been to more gigs so I could do this. There are so many bands I would have loved to have seen, I certainly should have done more of this whilst I was at Uni for three years!

    You’ve clearly put so much love and effort into your scrapbook and it has totally paid off! Finding out the set list and writing that in is such a great idea and a lovely way to preserve your memories! I couldn’t agree more with your attitude of personalisation over perfection either, my motto with scrapbooking is that you can never do it “wrong”! Thank you for sharing this little insight with us, thoroughly enjoyed reading!

    I loved reading this and love this idea, scrapbooking is something that I absolutely love to do and do do, if only I had seen more bands though. Yours looks incredible, and I totally agree perfection isn’t everything, that’s half the fun of scrapbooking. xx

      Thank you! It took me ages to realise this and lots of screwed up pages later I decided not to worry anymore!xx

    This is such a good idea!! I’ve never seen a post on this and this has inspired me to make one as all of my ticket stubs are currently in an envelope, writing stories with each one would be great to look back on xx
