Do you find this easy to do or really hard?
For those who have never "crossed the crack" what is holding you back?

Ok I'm a little lost. Are you talking about a 2 page layout with a picture on one page overlapping onto the other page? That's what it looked like in the one posted in the "show me" thread. If so, how does this work without the picture being bent when you close the album?

Yes, it is a picture that is on crack of a double page layout. To do this, you actually cut your picture and put one part of it on one page and the other part on the other page.

I have never "crossed the crack". It's one of the things I am scared to try. LOL!

I can't think if I've ever crossed the crack....I think once maybe. I'll need to see if I can find a pic to do that with.

so funny, I've done it multiple times. I guess I just don't have any issues with cutting up my pictures?

How often do you "cross the crack" with your pictures? I've only done this a couple of times. It definitely wasn't/isn't easy for me to do.
Do you find this easy to do or really hard? It's hard for me to do. I struggle and struggle with where to cut the pic and if it'll look okay. I have an easier time if it's a landscape pic, and not a pic of a person.
For those who have never "crossed the crack" what is holding you back?

For those who have never "crossed the crack" what is holding you back? Mostly the fact that I use 3 ring binder albums. Crossing the crack looks better with post bound.

It was my least favorite (the blurriest) of today's....I know, it broke my rule of not cutting a picture I don't really have a digital copy of! But it was okay. All of Rolo is on the one page, the rest was just my uterine wall, which isn't that cute.

I'm sure your uterine wall is just adorable! You didn't scan them before scrapping them? You really are brave!!

It looks really good though! I've cut people's arms off before.
