I'm new to scrapbooking and I love all the ideas and scrapbook layout ideas. However, most layouts are just for one page. I was wondering how you take these one page layouts and make them work for a two page spread. Glitter girl can you give me some ideas.

I like to use elements that stretch across the two pages to unify the spread. Usually a block of patterned paper or strips. I also like to repeat embellishments on different parts of the layout to keep the eye moving around the spread.

Scrapbook Generation and Page Maps have good 2 page layouts.

I like to use the same bases for two page layouts and then add different embellishments and some same embellishments on the layouts so that they have a unified look.

I like treating my 2 pages as a single canvas. I lay two sheets of white paper side by side and decided on a pleasing arrangement of photos. From there I choose my cardstock/paper, embellishments, etc.

Use the same paper and accents on both pages. Everyone else has pretty much covered everything.

I almost always do 2 -page layouts...sometimes more if I really want to include more photos from a bigger event. I just carry the same elements throughout and treat each 2 page layout like a single canvas. I tend to be a person that feels there should be no "rules" when it comes to creating...so why not?!

I find two-page sketches, and incorporate good ideas into those. There are lots of two-page sketches on the Internet. My favorite internet sites are Page Maps and Sketch Savvy, also the 4 x 6 photo blog. And I find plenty on Pinterest!

I only seem to do 2 page layouts...when I do them

I really like to use a larger photo on the one page and embellishments, then for the 2nd page use regular or smaller photos.

If I use a sketch, I will use the same sketch for both pages but turn it for the second page.

I've used a lot of sketches from scrapbook generation and also just combine two one page ideas to make a two page one.

I always do 2 page lo with multiple photos unless it is for the in laws then it is one photo but it is also a smaller book 8x8. I like the look of some lo with one photo however, there was a a lo done recently where I couldn't even find the photo. It was tucked under so much embellies in a corner and the rest of it was just the plain paper I thought I was looking at a new sheet of paper the person bought. There just is no wrong or right way. You do what you like.
