Project | Travel Album: Messe Frankfurt Style

[Disclosure: Messe Frankfurt is a Scrapbook Update sponsor.]

2016 is just around the corner, and that means another trip in late January to Frankfurt for Creativeworld. So now I’m on a mission to get my 2014 Frankfurt album completed before then so that I will still only be one album behind! It’s time to crank out some pages if I’m going to make it!

Today’s layout is sort of part two of the previous layout I did that was titled Hello Messe Frankfurt. The content is somewhat an extension of the first layout, and much of the design is as well.

Messe Frankfurt Style layout

This layout is all about the inside of Messe Frankfurt, whereas the previous one was more the outside. I kept the design very consistent from the previous one by using the Project Life “Everyday” Core Kit by Liz Tamanaha again, but this time I needed to add something. This layout had a lot of orange in the photos, because of the signage inside the Messe. To tie this in, I reached for another Core Kit, also by Liz Tamanaha. The insanely popular Midnight Core Kit has the same black and white color scheme and coordinates perfectly with the Everyday core kit – but has touches of golden yellow that work wonderfully with the signage in my photos!

Creativeworld 2014 | A Tour of Messe Frankfurt

Last month, for the first time, I traveled to Frankfurt, Germany to attend the annual Creativeworld show (and its sister shows, Paperworld and Christmasworld).

The shows are put on and hosted by Messe Frankfurt, the massive exhibition center in Frankfurt that also plays host to events such as the Frankfurt auto show, the world’s largest auto show. Before you can begin to really absorb the show itself, it’s necessary to orient yourself to the venue. And the Messe (as it is called in brief) is absolutely massive. It’s so large I can’t even compare it in size to any convention center that I’ve ever been in here in the U.S. A better comparison would be that the Messe is the size of a small college or corporate campus – a series of almost a dozen buildings connected by aerial walkways and a network of roads.

This road runs the length of the center of the Messe “campus” and is served by a shuttle bus service that allows attendees to move between buildings without walking huge distances in the skyways.
