Do you want to put a dent in your pile of photos whilst learning through sketches and example layouts how to create visually effective layouts? 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!

1/2 and 1/2 love to make double page LOs! The book looks awesome!

Probably about 1/4 of them. Just depends on the number of photos or how much I have to say :).

90% of my layouts are double pages
Posted By Lynn Wigren  |  May 02, 2012 at 04:52 PM

I used to do more double pages than I do now. Now I tend to start with a sketch which are typically in a one page format.

I have stacks of photos to scrap, I need this class. Double layouts tell more of the story.
Posted By Lynn Hamm  |  May 02, 2012 at 04:12 PM

I usually start with a sketch 50% of the time.
Posted By momcarole  |  May 02, 2012 at 04:11 PM

I would say 75% of my layouts are double page because I use a lot of pictures.
Posted By momcarole  |  May 02, 2012 at 04:10 PM

About 40% of the time. It used to be 100%!
Posted By Xnomads  |  May 02, 2012 at 03:19 PM

About half the time I use a sketch to start a layout
Posted By Leslie Kiley  |  May 02, 2012 at 03:05 PM

I almost always scrap double pages and I scrap almost every day! Love to take this awesome class!
Posted By Leslie Kiley  |  May 02, 2012 at 03:03 PM

I use a sketch probably 25% of the time. I really like them. :)
Posted By ratgirl  |  May 02, 2012 at 02:27 PM

I scrap double pg layouts about...65% of the time.
Posted By ratgirl  |  May 02, 2012 at 02:27 PM

sketches ... I use them a lot - probably 50 - 75% of the time. Especially when I have a lot of photos or I need a creative nudge.
Posted By alisonday  |  May 02, 2012 at 02:25 PM

Hooray for May! And May (the month), too!
Posted By ratgirl  |  May 02, 2012 at 02:25 PM

Great giveaways!
Posted By Helen  |  May 02, 2012 at 02:24 PM

I scrap double page layouts probably 50% of the time. I used to do way more but as I've been getting out of the "occasions and events" scrapbooking and into more "moments and stories" scrapbooking, I find single pages are being made more and more.
Posted By alisonday  |  May 02, 2012 at 02:23 PM

I have only ever made one double layout. I dont know why i dont make more as i usually have heaps of pics that i want to use.
Posted By karennarelle  |  May 02, 2012 at 02:20 PM

Most of my layouts are double page. Lately I have started to think I could cover more subject matter more quickly if I switched to single page. I just really like the flow of a double page.
Posted By MORMOR8  |  May 02, 2012 at 12:58 PM

maybe 10%...Not very many, but I can see myself doing more, especially with a sketch!
Posted By judean  |  May 02, 2012 at 12:55 PM

50% of the layouts I do start with a sketch.
Posted By Tesla  |  May 02, 2012 at 12:06 PM

About 30% of my LOs are double paged.
Posted By Tesla  |  May 02, 2012 at 12:05 PM

I use sketches a lot and I used to do double page layouts all the time, but I don't do that very often now. I should think about doing that again!

I love double page LO, this is a great way to use many photos especially when scrapping a trip and besides I have twins so I already do double the work.
Posted By 3peasepod  |  May 02, 2012 at 11:42 AM

I don't use sketches very often (maybe 5% of the time), but if I'm doing digital scrapping, I often will use a template. Maybe I need to learn about these more!
