Working with a Collage Print

Apparently April and May are busy months.  When I did Project Life in 2010, that is when I got behind. We had a family wedding out of town and things just sort of piled up. So I did both of those months as full months in my PL album.

I'm doing a little better this year as I have multiple layouts for April; however, May is getting past me quick.  So it seemed like a good time to try out he collage print option that my photo processor keeps offering me.

I use Walmart or Walgreens for photos as these are my closest places to pick up photos.  In my small town, Walmart is the only option.  Both seem to have the same photo interface with an option to turn your prints into a collage.

So for this layout, I uploaded several 4x6 prints and printed them as one 8x10 collage.  After trimming, it was more 7x8 inches.  This left plenty of room for journaling and with just a couple of embellishments, the page was done.

I really like the photo collage option.  It is cheap and easy.  It is also fun to keep shuffling on the screen and see what photos become the prominent ones.  I think this would work well for travel, a wedding or sporting event photos also.

So here's the video:

And here is the PDF which contains more details on using Walmart's (and probably Walgreens) photo collage option.

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Such a nice, clean way to include many photos on a page, Lisa. I love how you anchored the collage with the banners at each corner.

  2. what a great idea to use the collage print as a photo layout! LOVE that idea and you did a great job getting caught up on PL! Yay :) Thanks for sharing and inspiring! Kathi

  3. This is such an awesome idea!!!
    I love the way your layout turned out, so neat.
    After seeing you do this, it reminded me that my personal photo printer has this option but with a regular 4x6, but if I print two collages and place them one on top of the other, I should get a pretty close effect :)
    Thank you so much for sharing this :)

  4. Great collage, that looks like it was great fun to put together. I still tend to collage my photos with the old-fashioned cut and paste, but I really should try it on the computer.

  5. Great design. I love the collage.
