I have a quick question about what to do with pages that are rather bulky due to lots of embellishments. Do you put them in regular albums or do you use a special album that is taller and won't smoosh the pages? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!!

I have mostly bulky pages, I use American Crafts D-Ring albums and have no problems at all with them smashing.

If what you have is the post-type albums, first replace the post with a longer one-piece post (sold at the lss), then every couple of pages, put in a 'spacer'. Your package of refill pages should come with a couple, but for this many, use those spacers to measure out and make your own, out of foam sheets, and use the same spacers to mark and punch holes in the ones you make.

And of course, storing the albums in the upright position.

I am considering comverting over to D Ring albums for this very reason. My post bound ones are looking very "alligator" if you know what I mean! LOL

I have saved all the cardboard spacers I have bought with page cover refills but never knew what they were for. So glad to finally find out. Thanks so much for this info!

I have the same question. I am afraid with the weight of the pages laying on each other for awhile, the embellishments will leave imprints on the other pages/pictures. For this reason, I have shyed away from alot of the great embellishment materials I would like to have used.

Storing your scrapbook upright and not laying it down will help stop the smush effect. Also if you are using post bound you can convert it to strap bound and get more pages in the book easier, don't forget the spacers! I put one spacer about every 5 pages.
