Inspiration

Two Page Layouts
Thank you for your lovely comments and wishes for my dh! There's some questions about how to go about printing the two page layouts as the photos go down the middle of it. Good question! I was wondering about it myself too! :P
I was thinking after the layout is done, I'll resize the photoshop canvas to 12X12, save one half of it as jpeg, then the other, and try to make sure I've got it sliced neatly at the right place. I haven't tried it yet, and I intend to print it into a shutterfly book eventually, and I know that between the pages, the way shutterfly does it, the pictures at the middle of the double page will be slightly "hidden". That's why I chose a scenery shot to go down the middle, instead of a shot of person, so I won't mind the distortion so much!

Will appreciate if anyone else has a better idea of how this can be done? Cos I do think I'm gonna do a lot more the double pages, they are so useful for trip photos, and do look so good like a centre spread!
Oh, and I do want to show you a few amazing layouts I've had the opportunity to get permission to share here, you can tell which inspired my double page forays!
Here's two increble pages by Kari, yummy cookies and a yummy time the children must have had!

Here's a page by Jazzmint, of her incredibly cute daughter,

And this cutie page is by Kotrine:
Thank you ladies for sharing your layouts with us!
Have a blessed day!

  2. hmm..i've not printed any 2 page LO so far, but I do agree with you i will tend to put some elements or non photo/text in middle so that it won't get snipped off.

    I'll be printing my 1st photobook soon..72 pages of all 2 page LO..hahaha..hope it turns out nice :)

    I stumbled upon your site and I must say that your templates are divine, I have been looking for ways to get more photos on a page and have it look nice, these are so perfect!! I downloaded the 2 pager and made a page with it. I have never done a two pager before so I was wondering how I would split it too. I tried a few things, but I found the best way was to do just as you said, resize the canvas to the right, save as jpeg, undo, resize to the left save as jpeg. Worked perfectly! I will leave a link to my page when I get it uploaded!! I am so glad I found your blog!!!

    Thanks!
