Double Page Video Tutorial with a Sneak Peek & Giveaway!

So Monday's Sneak Peek didn't happen yesterday but it didn't happen for a reason. Yes, I had it all planned out. I didn't run out of time. I didn't procrastinate. It was all part of the plan! Okay, okay, maybe not, BUT, it is working out nicely for you guys anyway because you get to have a sneak peek in today's video tutorial!

These video tutorial are going to show you a little bit on how to edit a 24x12 finished page and template. Hmmm....24x12 you say, why would I need that? Well, just wait until you see Thursday's releases. Then you'll understand. In fact the template you see in this video tutorial will be one of the templates in Thursday's releases.

So without further ado here is the 1st video. It will show you how to take a finished 24x12 jpg image and crop it into 2-12x12 pages so that you can send them off to your favorite print shop and print them. The beautiful kit I used for my page is from Tracie Stroud and Jennifer Barrette called Walking on Sunshine.


This second one shows you how to take the 24x12 layered psd template and crop it into 2-12x12 layered psd templates. That way you can use each side of the page individually if you want to.


I just love 2 pagers, great for lots of photos and recap pages. Okay, now for the giveaway. Just tell me if you like to do double page spreads or if you think you would be more likely to use 24x12 templates individually. Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings if you would use them individually.....it's why I wrote the tutorials. :) Then I'll pick a winner and announce it on Thursday's blog post. You'll win my 2 new template sets that will be coming out this week! You won't wanna miss them.

I haven't used an double page spread templates yet. BUT I have been thinking about creating photobooks rather than having each layout printed and when I do that I think I will use 2 page spreads much more.

Sandra said...

I love double pagers. I'm often doing vacation books so double pagers with lots of photos are something I do a lot.

Jen said...

Love double pages! One for a real LO and the other for lots of pictures!

Jenny said...

I LOVE double pagers! I almost always use multiple photos in my layouts and need both pages to fit them all. Plus, 2-pg spreads make putting an album together much easier since I don't have to worry about whether or not a page will look good next to another page. Can't wait to see the new templates!

Denise said...

I like both! Double page spreads are great for scrapping a large event.

And, easy to change to use only one side, if needed.

LRaeWoo said...

I haven't done either but I'd sure like to start. thanks for this chance.

Adriana said...

Thanks for the tutorial! It looks very handy. I've never done a double layout digitally, but I have done lots of them on paper and enjoy them a lot.

I love 2 pagers cause I only print books and make my pages match, but I rarely use them full size cause my PC gets incredibly slow when I use 24x12 templates. That´s why I love when 2 pagers come each side individually! Actually my old PC allows me to work on 2 pages at the same time but not on a full size 2 pager LOL!

Brenda said...

I just tried a 2 page layout and I love it. Thanks for the tutorial on how to separate the page. That was way easier then what I was trying to do. Thanks for the chance to win.

Mel said...

I like both! I love that most 2 page layouts give you the option of using them as a double page or splitting them up if you want! Thanks for the chance to win =)

Amy said...

I only do single 12x12 pages. I print and put them in 3 ring albums. This way if I ever want to add some pocket pages with mementos or want to add to an existing album (like our family pet one) I won't interrupt the flow of a 2 page spread.

chocochoco said...

Double pages are great. I can combine two styles or more of digiscrap and put lot of photos.
Thanks for the chance <3

I've done a few double page spreads, but prefer single pages for some reason. But after reading everyone else's comments, I think maybe I should be doing more double pagers.

Suzan a.k.a. Smurfie said...

I never used double spread templates, or even made double spread pages but it sure does sounds like a great challenge!! :)
I'd love to win the templates to help me start doubles.

Thanks for the chance!

bill said...

I've never tried a double page. But now I think I'll give it a try.

Rebecca said...

I like the double-page layouts because it's easier to see the symmetry of your whole layout at once, rather than CTRL+TAB'ing between pages. :)

Jody said...

I love double pages. I always have so many photos of an event!

kimmyscraps said...

I love double pages for events like birthdays and christmas! thanks for the chance to win!

Rhadonda said...

I am no pro at this, a newbie but i think 2 pagers would be great because i would love using lots of photos on some events. The tutorials are SOOOOO helpful for me being a visual learner. Thanks so much.

Nikki O said...

i take "too many" pics (according to my husband), so i love double-page templates for helping me cram in all those pics! :) thanks for the chance!

ScrappingSpree said...

So I just used random.org to choose a winner for me and it's post #5! Which is Denise. Congrats Denise. I'll be e-mailing you soon.

Thanks everyone for playing along. There will be another chance next week to win!

raising4boys said...

Thanks for this tutorial. I have always been afraid of 12 x 24 because even though it looks easier to see the 2 page spread and work all together, I didn't know how to seperate for printing the 12 x 12 size. So thanks! I'll have to try one now :)
