Two Page Tuesday: The 8-Photo Scrapbook Layout


The assignment from Get It Scrapped!: Make a 2-page layout with 8 photos. My page is about our spring break trip to Springfield, Illinois, focusing on the Old State Capitol and Lincoln's Tomb.

Page 1: The layout begins with a focal point photo of Lincoln. The placement under the title and double matting all serve to draw the eye to this photo. With the theme firmly established, next comes a vertical strip of 3 smaller photos.


Page 2: A grouping of 4 photos and the journaling complete this two-page spread. Can you spot the ways I tied the pages together?


Both Pages: The turquoise polka dot and red strips of patterned papers run horizontally across the entire layout to promote flow across the two pages. Stars, kraft cardstock, and black as an accent color are repeated on both pages to further unify the double layout.

You can see more examples of 8-photo layouts in the article here. Plenty of ideas and inspiration!

  1. Such great pages, Sue! I like all the ways you tied the pages together particularly using the stars on both pages but coloring them black on the opposite page to match your title work.

  6. Great 2-pager! Amazing that you got 8 fabulous photos on the page. Great tips for unifying the two pages - something I always have trouble with when doing a 2 page spread. Love the wood veneer!:)

  9. Great 2-pager. I am coveting my wood veneers as they aren't making more in the same styles (or so SC says). I would be afraid to use so many stars, lol, but they look great....maybe hoard is the proper word :)
