Wow--you are seeing more and more vertical layouts these days. I have fallen in love with this style because of the freedom it gives me. I feel like there is so much room and I can use my smaller photos without looking having them look dwarfed by the 12 inch size paper. These are two of my latest 6"x12" layouts. I find that wallets, 3.5x5 and vertical 4x6 photos tend to work the best for this size composition. Remember gravity--largest and heaviest objects toward the bottom...so just as it is important for a skyscraper to have a good solid foundation, a tall layout needs some 'grounding' too! To ground your design, place a photo or darker/larger paper at the bottom of the layout.
