Default Seeing Double

WELCOME to the February SEEING DOUBLE Challenge!

Each month the Seeing Double challenge will have a different twist or theme. It will always be interesting and always be worth it!

The purpose of the Seeing Double challenge is to encourage us all to delve into the world of 2 page layouts. These are useful for so many reasons such as, maybe you have more of a story to tell that just doesn't fit on 1 page, or you like to scrap lots of pictures but want to spread the love, or one day you want to turn your creations into a printed book and what better way than to have it feel like a real book than having 2 coordinating pages!

This month, your challenge is to take TWO separate single page templates and put them together to make a 2 page layout. In my layout example below, I created a 24" wide by 12" high document, I pulled in 2 different templates and built my page. You can always do the 2 templates separate, and put them together when you are finished. The goal is to, well, end up with 2 matching pages

Here is my layout created with My Comfort



For completing this month's challenge and posting your layout in this thread, you will be entered to win a kit from my store (excluding bundles and collabs) So, I do hope you will join me!

Please be sure to link us up to your layout so we can leave you some love! You can do this by pasting the link above your layout, or by linking your layout directly to the gallery using the tools at the top of the Quick Reply bar.

This challenge runs FEBRUARY 1 - FEBRUARY 29, 2012. In order to receive the giveaway, your layout must be posted in this thread no later than 11:59 PM Eastern FEBRUARY 29, 2012.

Thanks for playing along!

Default Re: Seeing Double

you know, I never did 2 page layouts until I started making Photobooks for my family... now I live for 2 pagers, they look so fantastic in a Photobook! And, truth be told, I tend to mix and match my page templates for the double-page, lol! Sometimes I'll even use the same template for both pages, just flipped or rotated, it gives the the two pages a sense of symmetry

Great challenge Amber! I'm in for sure! I'll be back with my links!

Very Nice Kim.
Amber I read this post and found myself doing all the other challenges in 2 pagers. Interesting that I have yet to make one for your challenge.
Amber, I want to think you for inspiring me to go back to my old ways of Double Paging everything.

I love double pages for photo books, and they're great when you've got multiple photos of the same event or place. Great theme!

These photos are from pictures taken for our Christmas Card in 2010. Tate is our granddaughter. Tate's Mom took the pictures.

DONAKAT!!!

PM me your kit choice (collabs not included) and I will send you a coupon for the purchase!

Watch for the March Seeing Double in a few days!

Thank you all for sharing your lovely pages with me!
