Unique Ways to Preserve & Display Vacation Photos

0 Shares / 6 Tweets / 4 Repins

In this day and age most people choose to share their photos digitally on Facebook and Instagram; or never bother to download them from their camera all together. But what good does it do to have your once-in-a-lifetime vacation photos hidden on your camera or only available online to those few select friends?

We gathered some of our favorite tutorials around the Internet to show you how you can creatively preserve and display your vacation photos around the house.

1) Make your own canvas portrait by transferring your favorite vacation moment on to a stretched canvas. See how it’s done here.

2) Here, a printer tray is used to frame and display your photos. You could also use a shadow box, which would allow you to add keepsake items from your trip.

3) This is another, more abstract, way to display your photos on canvas that allows you to add multiple photos on to one canvas. Check out the how-to here.

4) Create a 3-D work of art that literally pops off the paper!

5) Are you the type to collect tickets, brochures, and other mementos, as well as photos? This journal allows you to hold all of those memories in one book.

6) Display your photos on to wooden blocks with this photo transferring method.

If you’re not the crafty type, you can also create a virtual photo album by uploading your photos to Picasa, Shutterfly, Flickr or any number of online photo sharing sites.  We like this method for sharing our guest’s vacation photos. Check out our guest photo album on Facebook.

    Years ago, on one of our Wind Surf cruises departing FLL, my bag didn’t make it from the airline to the ship (although my wife’s did). We were on an itinerary that wasn’t going to tie up at a major Bahamas port all week, so for the first several days I was a Windstar “logo boy”, wearing gift shop shirt, tees, hat, (all to supplement what I wore onto the ship), and swim suit. Luckily mid-cruise, one our anticipated bay moorings had to be altered because of unusually high winds, and we tied-up at the dock in Nassau. Ashore I was able to purchase a non-logo shirt, a pair of slacks, belt, etc., so I was comfortable/presentable for the remainder of the cruise. (Of course, my bag caught up with the ship on the next-to-last day of our cruise). For every cruise since then, my wife and I learned to pack half of each other’s items in each other’s bag, so if one bag disappears, at least both of us can survive. Oh, and we carry enough essentials in our carry on to last a few days aboard. It’s all good! Cheers!
