THREE THINGS TO TRY:
1. Some layouts just don't need journaling. Create a layout where you let the photos speak for themselves.
2. Fit 12 photos on a layout with plenty of room left for eye-pleasing white space by printing all your photos in wallet size.
3. Add interest to the page (and create a connection across a two-page spread) by adding strips of several different papers with a creative edge treatment.
