Sara and her family started a journey three years ago to visit each state’s capital in the United States. Their travels were supposed to take more than 10 years, but they have found themselves in 32 of the 50 states in the last 3 years! Sara says it has been a fun, but exhausting journey so far.
Now, Sara is using collage.com to create 11×14 posters of each state using pictures form their travels. As she receives them, she frames each one and hangs them on her wall at home:

This week’s featured collage comes from Tammy C.
I first saw Collage.com on Groupon. It was during my wedding planning process so I started thinking of the endless possibilities I could do with the product suite. Now the wedding is over and as I was going through all the awesome photos taken by my photographer “Absolutely Loved Photography,” I immediately thought of doing a collage to display all the great moments. It’s a much more creative and fun way to relive the wonderful memories of the wedding by seeing it hanging on the wall everyday!
Framed collage prints are the perfect way to shape your wedding memories. Get started on your collage today.

Collage.com is proud to announce the addition of it’s first Visual Schedule Template shape in honor of Autism Awareness Month.
What is a “visual schedule”, anyway? Visual schedules are basically pictograms of what’s going to happen next. People who are on the Autism spectrum, as well as young neuro-typical kids, often have difficulty switching from one activity to another. The visual schedule lets them know what’s coming next.
Why would I need one of these? What could I possibly use it for?
Well, it’s designed to do the following:
1) Be a full day’s chart
Morning, afternoon, and evening, with 5 cue pictures for each time. Examples would be: Morning- Breakfast, brush teeth, get dressed, put on coat, get on the school bus. Afternoon- school activities, recess, lunch, snack, get on the bus to go home. Evening- play, eat supper, brush teeth, put on jammies, read stories, go to sleep. Each activity is represented by one image. You can use your own, or search for stock images.
2) Be a travel chart
Do you have regular appointments on certain days of the week, or places where your child goes? Set up one column for each day, and them cut them into three “travel schedules” that can go with you on your daily activities. This could also work for vacations, where surroundings are often unfamiliar.
3) Help Identify family members
Do you have family that lives out of town, out of the state, or in another country? Use the squares for pictures of them to help your kids get to know their family members!
4) Sports Team or Classroom photos
Holds up to 15 individual images, plus a title
Keep your eye out for another Visual Schedule Template rolling out later this month, and Light it Up Blue!
This week’s Collage of the Week comes from Shay S.
“I found Collage.com several years ago, when it was called ScrapWalls.com. I bought a Groupon to try it out. I fell in love! I’ve since made many Collages. Most for personal use and a few for gifts.
We take a “big trip” once a year. This year, my husband and I took a trip to Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day! I felt the 4-leaf clover was the perfect representation of the trip. I only uploaded my favorite pictures from the trip. I used the drag-and-drop feature to move the photos around, so I could see my favorite parts of each of the photos and make my ”most favorite photos” the largest and easiest to see. We have a college wall of our trips and wedding, and look forward to adding this one to our collection.”
