Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway. I am currently catching up on last year's summer vacation layouts. I have way too many pictures for the pages I want to use. We also go to the same place every year so a lot of the pictures are repeats from year to year. I am always looking for ways to put as many photos in a layout without it looking like a photo album. This is one of my favorite tricks!

I start with a piece of white cardstock and cut it to 8x6.

I score it in half at 4 inches to make a "card" that is 4x6. 
I use my Martha Stewart Score Board to score and crease the fold.

I put a piece of ribbon on the bottom of one edge.  I use my ATG gun to glue it down.

I take the best of the three photos and glue it to the front of the "card" over the ribbon tail.

I glue the other two photos to the inside of the "card."

I use my ATG gun to adhere the "card" to my layout.  Here I matted all of the photos in blue.  I added the title and a little embellishments.

I hope you find this technique usefull!  It is also a fun way to hide your journaling by writing on the inside instead of adding photos.
