It’s the thirtieth of the month, so that means it’s time for a brand new edition of 4×6 Photo Love! Since it’s the tenth month of the year, we’re scrapbooking ten 4×6 prints on one scrapbook page. Grab some photos and join in the fun!

This month’s design is essentially a double page layout, but it’s back to back rather than two facing pages, because it’s all built with a divided page protector. This particular page protector is 10×12 and holds three landscape and two portrait photos on each side for a total of ten 4×6 prints.

This style of scrapping is very different than starting with a 12×12 page as the background. In fact, you make the whole page without any paper which is a little different indeed! I like that you can add embellishment on top of the page protectors and keep the photos safe and intact inside. And the 10×12 size means you can add a border or something unexpected to the edge of the page, and I love how that creates a layered effect in the album.

This month I’m joined by special guest Piradee Talvanna with her take on the 10×12 divided page protector. At first glance, the page is lovely of course, but then there’s a surprise!

Piradee added 4×6 cards between the photos to hold her writing. Clean design with so much packed into the page – I love how she balanced all the elements. (And her photos are so beautiful. I’m definitely starting to get stir-crazy for having no travel dates on the calendar!)

You can find Piradee’s project here at Two Peas to add to your bookmarks.

Now it’s your turn…
Every month, there are two ways to win a prize for participating in 4×6 Photo Love! The first is at Two Peas: create your page and upload it to the gallery. Be sure to tick the box for this challenge in step four of the upload process. One participant will win a gift certificate to Two Peas to go shopping for whatever you like. But there’s a second chance to win right here: on this post, leave a comment with a link to your page (in the gallery at Two Peas or on your blog, whatever you prefer) and one of those links will win Two Peas shopping money too! The deadline for both is the 29th of November.

Congratulations to Johanna for winning the draw for last month’s eight photo class! (Johanna, I need your email address. Can you contact me at shimelle at gmail dot com please?) Will you be next? Just choose ten 4×6 photos to scrap and follow along with this month’s class prompt.

What if I don’t have those page protectors?
Using these page protectors is not a requirement of entering the challenge. If you don’t want to add these to your stash, that’s fine! There are two more options for you to follow the same design principle: you can create a paper page with the same photo layout, as either back to back or facing pages OR you can use a standard page protector and create your own pockets by stitching and cutting the plastic accordingly. Get creative with whatever you do have and show us how you’ve added ten 4×6 photos to your album!


PS: Feel free to grab the button there on the left for your blog or to share this class with a friend – since it’s free, the more the merrier! And you’re welcome to use any supplies and any photos, so there’s no boundaries to your scrapping with this year-long project.

    I love this way of gathering together a lot of shots on a theme – thanks so much for another truly fabulous prompt, Shimelle :)

  5. Jeannie Says:

    I’m wowed, Shimelle. Definitely gonna try it. Thanks!

  6. Lucy Farrugia Says:

    Hi Shimelle, love the idea of this, looks fantastic and I could certainly do with this sort of layout for the amount of pictures I get printed sometimes!

    I do have 1 question, how “protected” are the elements that you’ve stuck to the page protector, won’t they get damaged / worn within the album?


  7. So.Creative Says:

    That’s incredible!!! How many photos can you scrap in a same time? You’re so amazing ;-)))

  8. Mel Says:

    Love this idea. Thanks for the inspiration as always.

  9. VeroniqueR Says:

    What a great idea! Many thanks for the sketch!

  10. MaryM Says:

    Love these 4×6 layout ideas. To be honest I don’t work w/4×6 photos that much. I usually print my photos at home, so I customize their size to fit my design. Your layout ideas (not just the 4×6 ones) have given me a whole new way to create really nice quick layout. THANKS!

    Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this website needs much more consideration. I’ll probably be again to read much more, thanks for that info.

  12. Brendann Says:

    I see you guys are having a heated discussion about gambling. I also want to add my opinion on this. I am currently playing best zodiac casinos and am very happy with the results. It only takes one dollar to have fun and it is not burdensome. In addition, it is not terrible to lose one dollar, unlike the amounts in other casinos.
