Today I cropped all afternoon… and here’s what I did.

The first picture is a better picture of the custom album cover.

Actually, the Columbus Circle layout is the last page I did today. It took me a while figuring out how to reproduce the globe.

Are you enjoying my layouts?

Coco Journey NYC Scrapbook Album - Day 1

Finally.

I sat down and started the photo album of my trip to NY to watch Conan. it is my intention to work on it every day until I finish it, and I’ll be blogging the process. Therefore, if you notice that I haven’t post anything about my Album, PLEASE HARASS ME. I need to finish albums, and this is an easy one.

Planning

  • I selected black pages for my album, because they provide a classic canvas that requires little decoration, and it combines with the colors Team Coco used. I’m using a Creative Memories album with a Custom Coverset (which I haven’t planned yet).
  • I gathered together all the digital images I wanted to print (from camera, phone, FB…). I intended to upload them to print, but my Costco account was cancelled because I was inactive for a year, so now I have to open the freaking account again. Uploading postponed.

Cropping

  • For my title page, I used as an inspiration the logo that Rob Ashe designed for Conan NYC.
  • I scrolled through all my Cricut Cartidges booklets, and I found two landscapes adequate for my project (Going Places and Plantin Schoolbook). Also, I found a similar font of what Team Coco used in the Creative Memories Traveler cartridge. 
  • I cut all the pieces with my Cricut Expressions 2 using Creative Memories cardstock, and used tape runner and photo tape to mount the pop-up “buildings” The final purpose of the pop-up wings is to add several photos to be revealed when the “buildings are opened”

This is the finished page when it’s closed:

Title Page NYC Photo Album

When you open the “building flaps”, you will be able to see the pictures that will be placed in the interior.

Is not much… but at least my creative mojo is back.

Questions? Comments? Let me know!

See you tomorrow!

And with color and background, Coco of Liberty is now complete!
This took a little longer than expected due the whole thing of Conan no longer having a beard. I was so thrown off without it being there! All the more reason for him to grow it back…
I’ve already submitted this into the COCO MoCA site. Now all there’s left to do is to play the waiting game and see what happens from here.
I hope I did the statue justice and not offend anyone out there. Can’t wait for the NYC shows in November!! :D

Great work by a great Coconut!
