NYC Mini Album – Before

Since I was going to be scrapbooking on the road I needed an album full of pages on which to write and attach memorabilia.  I told you about how I made the cover here.  To make the interior pages I grabbed some papers in my accent colors and any travel embellishments I had.  Making pages without pictures is hard for me.  But stretching my skills was fun!

I thought I’d just show you the pages as they looked prior to our trip.

This camera is on a transparency page I got from a giveaway I won recently. Perfect for this album!

As part of Ali’s class you receive a download of travel quotes.  This one says, “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”

Another transparency (part of the same 12×12 page the camera came on) and another quote.  “There is no moment of delight in any pilgrimage like the beginning of it.”

This page is made of grunge board with a wooden map glued on.  I painted over the whole thing (like how I made the cover here).  Once it was dry I added a heart sticker and topped it off with a bit of glossy accents.  LOVE IT!

The back of the grunge board page was just painted, but it is a bit distorted from the wood shape on the front.  Oh well.  🙂

This grunge board page got an @ chipboard sticker added to it prior to painting.

Once again I painted the back as well.

This transparency quote says, “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”

This page is from Stacy Julian’s Coordinations cardstock.  Love this stuff!

I just love this bubble paper with a map sticker on it.  LOVE IT.  Not sure why, but it’s one of my favorite pages!

The final transparency quote says, “Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.”

I got this envelope from a wedding invitation.  I thought it would make a nice pocket to stick misc items.  Love repurposing things!  🙂

And that’s it!  The album as it looked on the day I left for our trip to NYC.  Come back Friday to see how it looked all filled up!

Have you ever scrapped during your vacation?  Do you come back after and put an album together right away?  Or do you make a page and be done?  I’d love to hear about your experience!  Leave a comment and tell us all about it!
