Two Page Tuesday

When I started out scrapping, I always made 2 page layouts.

As my style evolved, I fell in love with single pagers and consciously tried to copy the layouts I saw in magazines.
I learned principles of page design and techniques to add pizzazz to my layouts.
Single page layouts were all I made.
Two page spreads were viewed as challenges on the message boards I frequented.

Fast forward seven years.

I began teaching an occasional class at my LSS, New England Scrapbook Co.
The customers there are mostly a two page creators.
This has challenged me to relearn how to scrap 12 x 24 while retaining my style.

The result?

I've become infatuated once again with double page spreads. These days, I'm on a mission to inspire others to give it a try.
Let's face it, we all have a LOT of pictures to scrap.
And you can fit more in the bigger space.

Here's a look at a couple of my 2 pagers:

I'll be posting more 2 pagers next Tuesday!
