There are some ready-made double page templates in the boutique:
ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album
ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates: 12x12 Around N Around
Scrapsimple Digital Layout Album Templates: 12x12 Spread Out Mini
ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates: 12x12 Absolutely Blended
But you can always mix and max and drag whatever templates you like into a 12"x24" space to create a custom 2-page spread.

Hi, Jenalyss! Welcome to Scrap Girls. I do double layouts all the time, so here's what you do:
Open the first template and the second template separately.
On the template that you want on the LEFT side, enlarge the CANVAS SIZE from 12x12 to 12x24, with the "extra" all on the right hand-side. In Photoshop CS4, the command is Image, Canvas Size. Then click the middle left arrow on the "tictactoe" arrangement to indicate resize FROM the middle left. Click the very top layer; this will make sure the next template layers come in without being sandwiched between some of the first template.
Click to the Right-side template. Make sure the window is "floating" rather than docked, and that you can see at least some of the blank canvas area for the first template at the same time. In the layers palette for the Right Hand Template, select ALL the layers (click one, then CTRL A), and drag the palette layers to the blank area, then release.
Close the right-side template. While the layers are still selected, drag the set to the right location. SAVE the template you've created with a new name; don't overwrite your originals. I just noticed this is in the PSElements forum; maybe someone else can revise my instructions slightly to get them just right for PSE.
Again, welcome to Scrap Girls. I look forward to seeing your layouts.

This line will help you visualize how your layouts will look when they are cut apart.
