Here's my latest creation! A double layout.

Remember those? Yup, back when I fist started scrapping I only made double layouts but lately I only make single layouts. Double layouts can come in handy when you have a bigger event (such as a wedding or birthday part or trip) since you can use more pictures to portray the story. For this layout I used Karen's Thursday Sketch done by Alda. It is a single page sketch so, how did I do it?

Well, there are many ways that you can turn a single page sketch into a double layout.

You can:

mirror it:

This is my favorite technique and is exactly what I did in my layout! I like this one because it's gives me a symmetrical double layout.

Mirror it in the opposite direction:

This one is just like it but mirrored in the other direction. You still get the same symmetry here.

rotate it:

You don't have to stop here where I stopped! You can keep rotating until you see something that you like. I stopped here because, again, I like the symmetry.

extend it:

I like this technique too since it lets you be creative when doing this!

Last but not least, you can place two different sketches side by side but this one is a little more tricky since not all sketches look good one next to the other. Well, hope that you enjoyed this little tip. Hope to see more double layouts in the boards soon!

Here are some better pictures of each side of the layout:

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That 2 pager is absolutely gorgeous!!!! I can't believe how many crocodiles you saw! That was scary! I love the embellies and everything goes so well. Also the spark of color you have in the "everglades" part of the title looks fab!

  2. Love your layouts. I mirror single layouts all the time....great idea.

  3. Great 2 pager. I love how you demonstrated the variations.

  4. I already commented over at PIT...but I'll comment here again. Great 2 pager I love what you did with the single page layout to turn it into a 2 pager...in addition you gave tips on how to do that...thanks for sharing!

    By the way, I have an award for you waiting at my blog :-) I love your work...
