    designing 2nd set of pages - same event

    When designing the 2nd set of pages for the same event what's the most important thing? same paper, same embellishments, same color palette, something else? Trying to do a 2nd set of Christmas 2015. I used a piece of lace on the first set & I don't have anymore of it (& can't get any more) so am trying to decide how to tie the pages together. The other problem I have is that I just acquired photos from Christmas morning that I didn't have before &, combined with the baking ones, I have too many photos for a double lo. Was wondering if I could do one side the baking & one the morning (still too many photos) so what if I did something like this & stacked them? Mind you, this is just a digital mock up. I would put a mat around the photos.

    I don't see why not. It is a unique and interactive way to do it too.

    First rule: there are no rules in scrapbooking.
    Second rule: you don't have to scrap every photo.

    So when I get a ton of photos, I do two things: weed some out and crop the heck out of the ones I want to keep.
    I might crop one really small photo to get one particular person or item on the page and treat it like an embellishment itself.
    As far as coordinating pages, I tie them in with using less of the pp, choosing papers that are similar but not exact, or using just the same lo design. I'll have to take pics of the ones I am just about finished with and post for you in a bit.

    I like what you've done Carol, it'll work just the way you have it. When you talk about stacking photos, how do you mean? Did you know CTMH makes "flip flaps"? They allow you to add more photos to a page that you don't want to leave out. You slide your photos, journaling, whatever and attach it to the page protector.

    Maria, I have weeded out some photos & the CTMH flip-flaps were how I was going to "stack". Don't see how I could use the same design, I cropped & had them printed in the size I needed. I'll just keep playing - my lo's usually sit on my table several days (weeks) before I get them the way I want.

    I like what you've done and it looks great! If I'm really desperate and want to use the same paper, I'll use plain cardstock as my base and use the pp to sprinkle among several pages. I find it challenging and like you, might sit on a LO before I make a final decision. I really love to mix and match pp's from different lines, I feel so artsy, lol!

    I love what you've done!

    When I do a series of pictures, I like to buy paper pads for them so that all of the colors and patterns are complimentary. Of course, I don't have to buy a pad, but it's easier to me than trying to find single sheets of paper to match.

    While I said that I feel artsy with mixing and matching different lines, I definitely buy the packs or pads of a line I love. It simplifies the process so much!
