Someone said this on the thread asking GG to do more for 2-page/multi-photo scrappers:

I would love to see GG address the question of how to adapt all the fabulous single layout inspiration out there into a two page layout that retains the design integrity.
Teach us to fish rather than giving us a fish.

Since I only do 2 pagers, I do often find myself having to make up a 2nd page to go with the 1 page layout inspiration I've found. I have a basic formula that I often use for that 2nd page though. I call it "the fan." Look at the right side of each of these layouts. (I tried to load the images, but they were all huge, so I'm just gonna link them.) See the trend here? You can do whatever with the background and embellishments, but use the same basic idea for your pics.

Idea 1
Idea 2
Idea 3
Idea 4 (with a bit extra)
Idea 5

Another thing I've been doing lately is making an 8x10 or 8x8 or 10x10 photo collage and using it on the right side. It makes things so much easier!

I was really hoping they would offer a series focusing on two page layouts this year but no such luck.

Personally, I really struggle to do two page layouts. An idea I am going to try is to take a sketch and complete a layout then rotate the sketch 90 degrees and scrap it from that perspective .

Not sure that makes sense but I'm going to try it....lol.
