Real Life Tip – Got Photos?


These next couple weeks we want to share some “simple” tips with you that we hope you will be able to incorporate into your scrapbooking. Then be on the lookout for our first challenge starting February 1st!

What do you do when you have an event with a lot of pictures? Do you make layouts for them all, or just pick your favorite pictures and scrapbook those? I recently found out about divided page protectors.

I have had these pictures of Tyler’s first birthday that I had not scrapbooked yet. Part of the reason that I didn’t was because I did not know what I was going to do with all these pictures, and I couldn’t leave any out (it was his first birthday). I had considered making a mini book with them, but I really wanted to include them in his First Year album. When I saw these page protectors I thought it would be a perfect way to keep it simple and get all those photos in without making 6 different layouts!

I did take a few of my favorite pictures and made 2 layouts to go beside the protectors and then I used coordinating papers to embellish a little bit.

And this is how it looks in Tyler’s album.



These are the page protectors that I used, Pebbles Inc. Share & Tell.  I found them at Hobby Lobby when they were 50% off.

And here are some others that I have seen online:

We R Memory Keepers

I Remember When

Creative Memories

Ali Edwards also has some great tips on how to use these divided page protectors too! Check that out here.

If you have used these before leave a comment with a link, I’d love to see your pages!

See you next Friday with another Real Life Tip!
