Multi-photo layouts are a favorite of ours and here to present two of them following a road trip to food capital of the world, NYC, is CP Gal, Katie Ehmann.
Ahhh, NYC, New York, New York, The Big Apple...whatever you call it, New York City is a truly amazing place to visit! I'm lucky to have a family member who lives there, and every summer I pack the car and roadtrip from Michigan to visit for a week. It's an eleven hour drive, and we always just drive straight through, making sure that we have lots of movies for my girls to watch! Once there, our days are filled with sightseeing, visiting parks, lots of photos, and of course, eating! And you know what? When I returned from my trip this year, I busted out Crate's Open Road collection and created two layouts, each with multiple photos.
My first commemorates the actual road trip portion of our vacation. I grabbed the awesome map paper and new right away I wanted to feature our route with hand stitching across the map. I used two pieces of red embroidery floss and traced the path from Michigan to NYC. My title takes center stage on this layout, with it's funky mixed fonts and the chipboard car and map. I love how it turned out, and the multicolor Thickers are the best! My photos are iPhone pics I snapped along the drive. I printed them in 3" x 3" squares and highlighted each with a chipboard slide frame. A few detailed embellishments completed my page.
My second layout pays homage to one of the ultimate features of NYC––the food! We went to so many different restaurants, and had a blast trying lots of what makes New York City cuisine so unique, from pizza to soup dumplings, to seafood and Coney dogs, we tried it all (well, almost!).
For this layout, I knew that I wanted to document the wide variety of food in New York, so I printed my photos in 1.5" x 1.5" squares, and arranged them in a grid across my page, leaving space in the middle for a title. I machine sewed the lines to add detail between photos. I loved the title on my first layout so much, that I decided to repeat the look on this project. The pink polka dot paper provided a good contrast to the boldness of the Thickers, and a few chipboard accents added detail without overwhelming the page.
Thanks for joining me today, Crate fans! I do hope you're enjoying some summer travels of your own!
