Snapfish Photo Collage Prints - for scrapbooking
Snapfish recently started selling photo collage prints where you can pick up to a certain number of photos (based on the final collage size) to include in a photo collage on one printed photograph.
I often wish that I could have several smaller pictures instead of all 4 x 6 prints to fit more pictures on one scrapbook page, so these collages sounded like a great way to get more bang for my buck and a good way to save me some planning and prep-time before ordering my photographs.
I had four 8" x 10" collage prints made to capture a total of 57 photographs of some recent vacations. Each 8" x 10" cost $2.99. While the end cost is about 21 cents per image of the collage (more than the regular 12 cents per 4 x 6), I was able to get them printed at a miniature size without having to order multiple wallet sized prints or creating my own photo collage in Photoshop before printing. You can even add titles and change the colors of the borders, and play with your photo choices and the orientation (landscape or portrait) before ordering it, to be sure you're getting what you want. To me, that was worth the time and energy saved!
So, here's what I came up with for my scrapbook pages using the Snapfish photo collages. You can see the original 8" x 10" collages and then the layout using all the pics right below.
For the first two, I kept the collages in-tact and used them as one large photograph on the layout:
The next two, I cut the collages into individual pictures and made my own collage designs on the layouts:
I just love how they all turned out. I've always been a big fan of LOTS of photographs on a layout, and this made it easy! And now, instead of 20 pages of vacation layouts, I was able to create 4. My album spines thank me. :)
Give them a try! They're fun: Snapfish Photo Collage Prints

where do you find the 12 x 12 collage layouts? I haven't joined Snapfish yet, but I couldn't find them on the website.
That is just brilliant! Thank you for sharing and your pages turned out GREAT! Going to do the beach one for a play my son was in. I want lots of pictures this is definitely the way to do it.
Fantastic read! I really love scrap-booking a lot and those lay-outs are pretty impressive. Great collage of pictures. I will definitely try it myself. Thanks for this post. Scrap-booking would be a lot more exciting and fun.
