    Default If you're bored ...

    I need to do a 2 page 12x12 layout that involves 12 photographs, all 4x6, that are a mixture of portrait and landscape. I have very little room for cropping them ... but if I have to get them reprinted, I will. So if you're bored, and feel like looking at any galleries that have such pages, I'd love to see them. But I know it's a lot to ask, so only do it if you're bored and have the time.

    I have it bookmarked, but I guess I'm looking for more actual pages ... I get lost in the page maps site sometimes (meaning, it's just too much at once)

    Dimension wise, the only way you are going to fit 12- 4x6 pictures on 2 pages (non cropped) is if you have a page of 6 horizontal, stacked right next to each other and another page of 6 vertical, also stacked right next to each other.

    horizontal, horizontal= 12 inches width
    horizontal, horizontal
    horizontal, horizontal
    =12 inches length

    vertical, vertical, vertical= 12 inches width
    vertical, vertical, vertical
    =12 inches length

    If you want room to play with some vertical and some horizontal on each page, reprinting some may be your best bet.

    I had a dream about your page lol! I read this before bed and I must have been thinking about it cause I saw the page in my dream. Let me see if I can remember it and sketch it. Not sure if I can remember but I will try.

    ay yi yi ... yeah, that won't work. I'm going to have to reprint, but I can't do that without a sketch in mind to know what size to go to. Insane!!! I'm DYING to do this layout!!!

    Gwen, you might get some inspo from these sketches (all for 12 or MORE pictures!):

    This is the one that caught my eye with the repeating squares that would be perfect for using up some scraps:
