One workflow would be to Share the Timeline of the second Project, then Import that into the first, dragging that to the end of the material on that first Project's Timeline.
No, PreEl does not allow combining projects... you will have to export a finished, editable video from your 2nd project and add that video to the timeline of your 1st project
Grin... Hunt type faster!

Hope that helps,
PS - one can also use a Clipboard Extender, like ClipMate, to Copy and Paste the Timeline from one Project into another.
As said, you cannot import one project file (project.prel) into another project file (project.prel).
The classical ways to transfer between two Premiere Elements projects...
a. Export the Timeline of one to file saved to computer hard drive, and then import that saved file into the other project
(assuring that all the settings agree between projects...more information on the appropriate project settings pending further details from you).
b. Copy/Paste Insert between projects using Premiere Elements in conjunction with ClipMate (Windows only).
Have you offered what computer operating system your Premiere Elements 11 program is running on?
Any questions or need clarification on anything written, please do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks everybody. Export and import fuction does the job. By the way my OS is Windows 7 64bit with 16GB of Ram.
Great news. Thanks for the follow up with what worked for you.
Much appreciated and helpful to all.
I am glad to read that the Export/Import scheme worked for you.
Now, and depending on what you are starting with, this article of DI's (Digital Intermediates [files]) might be useful: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/875797?tstart=0
I use the tips in that article, where I want the ultimate quality, with the fewest compression generations.
Good luck, and happy editing,
