Scrapbooking with two 4x6 photos

scrapbook page

I know I do a fair few single-photo layouts, but my favourite is actually two 4×6 photos in the same direction. This is the one photo combination that doesn’t leave me looking at the background trying to figure out where things should go — they just seem to have a natural home!

scrapbook page

For this challenge, see what you can do with just two 4×6 photos! You can take inspiration from these two pages or you can create something entirely different. Load your page to your blog or a scrapbook gallery and leave a link in the comments on this post to enter.

One randomly chosen entry will win a photo printing gift certificate to order more pictures! (I’ll arrange for it to be a company that prints in your country, wherever the winner may live!)

You have until 6am Monday UK time to enter.

And you need some music to keep you going, of course!

    Not sure if this counts, ‘cause I’ve scaled my LO down to the size of pages I’m doing for my SFAN project (which is 8.5X8.5).

    I have “sort of” used two photo’s ~ tenuously sort of … am waiting for glossy accents to dry and will post it later on! :)

    Sorry, it’s only in Finnish but i hope the page speaks for it self! =) This was so much fun! I’m going to use this sketch again for sure!

    I have always had problems using clusters of embellies, but this format made it so easy. I can see this will be appearing in many of my LOs now. Thank you so much for this one (and the others of course)
