Collage Photos on Layouts

Hello! Diana here, excited to bring you my first post.
I would like to share with you my latest obsession “Collage Photos”, when I scrapbook I frequently add lots of photos to my pages, that is because for me scrapbooking is a way of documenting events that happen in my life and most of the time I need more then one photo to tell the story.
To make collage photos you can either order them at snapfish.com like I did or if you print your own photos and have a computer program that allows that option have fun creating your own.

Here is an example of a double page layout I made



I was able to add a total of 12 photos from this day we spent at an Apple Orchard. I also like how the collage photo looks on a single page layout.



Having the photos all grouped in a 5X7 frame allowed me extra space to add more details to my pages without covering them up with bigger photos



Supplies used:
Pattern Paper-Making Memories
Cardstock-Bazzill Basics
Die Cut- K&Company
Border Punches-EK Success
Ribbon: American Crafts
Flowers: Maya Road
Glittered Chipboard Shapes: Making Memories
Alphas-American Crafts

I hope I was able to provide some inspiration for your next layout, come back tomorrow and I’ll show you how I used collage photos to make the pages of a 6”X9” Album.

Enjoy your day!

Yeah for your first post!! We are honored to have you here :)

Di, these pages are Gorgeous! You have me hooked on the collage pics, maybe this will help me with space on my LO's and I so agree with your point on needing many to tell the whole story:) What a fun trip and the colors and embellishments are perfectly matched. My fav part is the mini manilla tags, so cute!
