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 eleventh month of the year, we’re scrapbooking eleven 4×6 prints on one scrapbook layout – which is quite possibly an eye-crossing endeavour, but it is possible! Grab some photos and join in the fun and games.

I shall swear up and down that this month’s design isn’t cheating – it still counts as one layout to me! It starts with a double page spread including seven 4×6 prints (I used three portraits and four landscapes) then an extra 6×12 page in the middle holds four more landscape images and two journaling cards.

With so many photos on the page, you’ll find that it comes together rather quickly and without a huge stack of supplies, since more of the page than usual is filled with photographs. This month’s pages are definitely easier to see on video than in still pictures, so watch this month’s pages come together when you have a minute!

Stop by Two Peas to download a PDF with notes on this project and visit the Education message board for all the Two Peas classes.

This month I’m joined by special guest (and scrapping friend!) Leanne Edwards with her take on this design principle. She printed a big stack of photos from her wedding reception at 4×6 and they are all landscape, so she adapted the design to work perfectly with the pictures she wanted to scrap. I love the bright colours and the party feel from all those polka dots!

You can find Leanne’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 December.

Congratulations to Karen for winning the draw for last month’s ten photo class! (Karen, I need your email address. Can you contact me at shimelle at gmail dot com please?) Will you be next? Just choose eleven 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. You can create one yourself or adapt the idea as it suits you. Plus, don’t hit me but… these page protectors are out of stock at Two Peas after the big Thanksgiving weekend sale, darn it. But go here and you’ll find them as the first thing in the supply list. Click the ‘Request and Notify Me’ button, and then when they are back in stock, you’ll get an email so you can grab them before someone else. (Seriously, I use that button all the time for my standby items that I order again and again. Very useful!)


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.

  1. Anne Says:

    Great layout, unfortunately sound is too quiet to hear on iPad.

  2. Mel Says:

    Result – I ordered some photos this very afternoon, including 11 from one particular occasion which will do just nicely for your latest prompt! Thanks for the inspiration xx

  3. Dawn Cheshire Says:

    Fabulous as always – just been through some recently developed photos and I’ve got a bunch of playing in the autumn leaves shots so this will be perfect. I turned the sound up fully on youtube and my laptop to be able to hear clearly!

  4. Iliana Says:

    Beautiful….how do you keep your writing so straight?

  5. Michelle Says:

    I have done what you did before! I used Creative Memories albums. Attached the pages together with adhesive on the outside edge jeeping. Then I cut the staples off the inside so as not to lace the strap through when loading my pages. You can really pack a lot of photos that way. Been enjoying all of your pages and videos!! :)

  6. Maria Bush Says:

    I wanted to let you know I never received my prize for the Butterfly/Bingo contest that I won for back in August I believe it was or early September.

    There are certainly loads of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to convey up. I supply the ideas above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you convey up the place a very powerful thing shall be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged round issues like that, but I’m positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Anyway, in my language, there aren’t much good supply like this.

    Love this sketch! I made my version and posted it on my blog here:×6-photo-love-sketch-layout.html#.T_W3jPXNmDQ Thank you so much!!

  11. Italy Travel Says:

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
