Make your own custom collage sheets on PicMonkey

Make a Collage Sheet on Picmonkey Tutorial

You can buy the most beautiful printables and digital collage sheets online, but sometimes the layout of the pages might not be suited to your needs. You might find the perfect invitation for a dinner party on a sheet with 8 different designs, but you really only need that one design 8 times.

Does that mean you have to waste tons of ink by printing 8 pages full of images of which you only need one? Not any more! We’ll show you how you can make your own custom layout with only the images you need on PicMonkey.

Are you curious about our most favorite tools & materials that you would love too? Take a look at our list.

    Thank you so much for all your tutorials so far. This one will help me immensely and it is so clear and easy to follow.
    Thanks again. I am truly grateful for your time and efforts.
    P.S I couldn’t open my freebies that I got for joining freeflow and ended up deleting them out of frustration. Any tips on why please and is it possible to get them again?
    Warm regards,
    Marion
