Hey everyone, Becki here. I’m excited to share a double-page multi-photo layout with you. In all honesty, double-page layouts are hard for me to create. I kind of panic when I look at that huge 12 x 24″ canvas. That much space is intimidating to me, so I don’t create them very often. I’m mostly a single layout scrapper kind of gal. The layout I created to share with you today is made with the Crate Paper’s Cute Girl collection. This pretty line is perfect for documenting an all-girls shopping trip, don’t you think?
I chose a white cardstock background for this layout. That’s another struggle I have with double-page layouts – the backgrounds. As you’ve seen here on the Weekly Scrapper blog, I LOVE patterned paper, and I don’t use a lot of cardstock.
When I do create a double-page layout, I want both pages to have the same background. Often, I don’t have two sheets of the same patterned paper. In the future when I’m shopping, I’m going to pick up two sheets of a few patterned papers so that I will feel more comfortable making a two-page layout.
I really wanted to focus on the photos on this layout. I have so many great photos from that day. I chose to print my favorite photo (the one above with the five little girls) larger than the other photos so it would stand out. The other photos are 4 x 4. I also put an additional layer of patterned paper behind that photo.
I created an embellishment cluster at each end of the line of photos, and used lots of embellishments from the Cute Girl collection.
Because I wanted to keep the focus of this layout on the photos, I tucked my journaling behind the largest (4 x 6) photo. I typed a few of my thoughts from that day, printed it, and tucked it away under the photo.
Do you create double-page multi-photo layouts? I’d love to hear about your process. What tips and tricks do you have for me?
Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek at my double-page layout. I’ll see you again next week!
