Welcome to the blog celebration of the Big Idea Festival Each day, from August 15th – 26th, we will highlight a participating teacher and giveaway BPC goodies here on the blog. And you won’t want to miss what the teacher has provided in the FREE classroom, you can still register here.

Today's participating teacher is Nic Howard, get to know her better below

If I had to create with ONE color for the rest of my life, I would pick red. Today I would pick red; yesterday it would have been green. Tomorrow it very well may be another colour…I'm not colour discriminatory. Ok, wait. Sometimes I leave purple' til last. Sorry, purple.

ONE of my best strategies for fueling my creativity is …making sure my house is clean. Clean house, clean mind. I know. This doesn't necessarily make sense.

enter the Studio Calico product giveaway inside the classroom (you can still register here)

Class Giveaway: Double Take

About the Class: Double page scrapbook layouts are a great way to create a more cohesive looking album, include more photos and stories in your layouts and still have plenty of room left over for creative fun! What could be better than getting a whole class packed with two-page layouts? We're doubling the fun with not just one, but two of our fabulous teachers, and they are teaming up for a BPC class like never before!

How to Enter: Leave a comment on the blog and tell us if you create mostly single page or double page layouts. Giveaway closes 8/26 at 9:00 am PST.

Giveaway winner is  Jennykb

Mostly single pages but I use double pages frequently.

I'm a single page girl - I really need to do more double pages.

I create mostly double page layouts and was very intrigued by your upcoming class. thanks for the chance to win a spot in the class.

I used to scrap only doulbe pages because really who can only scrap just a couple of photos :) Now, however i am in a trend of mostly scrapping one pagers. But when i have a lot that i want to scrap, i whip myself out some sort of a mixed media mini album. Those are my favorite things to make :)

I used to be 100% double page LOs. This year I have been challenging myself to try new things and be more flexible (in life, but here I'm talking about scrapbooking!). So, I'm practicing with a few single page LOs too.
Posted By Briel  |  August 26, 2011 at 07:04 AM

I create both. I'm not one of those people with a preferance, it realli just depends on what photos I have.

I do mostly do double LO's, but when I am taking a class, it seems I do more single page LO,s
Posted By CarolS  |  August 26, 2011 at 06:38 AM

I make mostly single pages.
Posted By Sammie  |  August 26, 2011 at 06:04 AM

I usually create single pages, but would love to know how to fit more pics on a 2 pager!
Posted By Kelly T.  |  August 26, 2011 at 05:24 AM

Definitely single pages. I find that I can usually get most stories told on one page and therefore I can fit more stories into my albums. That being said I absolutely intend to sign up for Double-Take with Nic and May.

Always double page layouts. Thanks for the chance to win this class. I so want to try it :)
Posted By Lucy  |  August 26, 2011 at 05:13 AM

For years it was always doubles but now its almost always singles. If I do a themed album its still doubles though.

I normally do one page layouts. But, I'd like to try doing two-page layouts for layouting multiple pictures... maybe soon...

Admittedly, i do more single page layouts than doubles but I have noticed that I am creating more and more two pagers as time goes by.
Posted By Wolf  |  August 26, 2011 at 12:30 AM

Single pages and rarely double, maybe I should consider two pp.
Posted By JESA  |  August 26, 2011 at 12:17 AM

I usually create single page layouts!
Posted By gypsylcm  |  August 26, 2011 at 12:10 AM

I usually do single page layouts. Thanks to Stacy's Photo Freedom class, I have learned that I don't need to scrap all the pictures---not even nearly!! So I use from 1 to 3 photos per layout in most cases. Can I just say, I absolutely ADORE Nic Howard's accent!! :-)
Posted By Barb in AK  |  August 25, 2011 at 11:53 PM

I scrap generally in single 12 x 12 pages.. Sounds like an interesting class! Hope I win.
Posted By stinkydudette  |  August 25, 2011 at 11:07 PM

wow! looks like a great class. i always do single layouts. i would love to do a double, tho. they look so full and fun!
Posted By kinueko  |  August 25, 2011 at 10:53 PM

I usually do mainy single pages. Funny enuff did a double page layout recently - and it was while doing your colour or is it color class at big picture! It looks gr8!
Posted By LisaBee  |  August 25, 2011 at 10:05 PM

I think I probably do about 2/3 double-page LOs. And I find those are the hardest to come up with a design for. I'd love to take the class - thanks for the chance to win!
Posted By JenRay  |  August 25, 2011 at 09:25 PM

I began doing mostly single pages, but now that I have better quality photos so I can zoom in and 'fill the frame', I do less cropping of the physical prints and therefore need the additional space of double pages.
Posted By Michele in La.  |  August 25, 2011 at 08:39 PM

When I scrapbook I always do double layouts. I always want facing pages to coordinate.
Posted By Desiree  |  August 25, 2011 at 07:29 PM

Mostly single now in digi.. Did a lot of doubles when I did paper....had to use up those pics!
