I have seen some really beautiful layouts with Prima flowers. I haven't tried my hand at any yet. I was just curious if they fit in an album ok or if they stick up too much and make your album too thick.

what's too thick LOL,,,I have no such vocabulary

Many are quite flat and work nicely,,,,I find some of the roses are quite thick (like the ones below), even the smaller ones "stand up" off the page,,,,,however, I still love them in albums and use them frequently,,,,,I just have thick, chunky albums

I swear by Prima! They have the most gorgeous flowers around.

To be quite honest with you, yes they make ur albums bulky=( Not so much if you're using a D ring binder. But bulkiness is the price I pay for their gorgeousness=)

Theyre paper flowers arent as bulky.

Yep, the roses can add quite a bit of depth to your page. But I love the depth, so I deal.

The flowers stick up depending on which ones you use but I have found over time-once they are in a page protector and an album-they flatten a bit-the albums are fine. My pages are super chunky-so I can only fit one page per protector-I am fine with that too!
The Fiestas you posted are flatter than some-they will be fine...

they do make your albums bulky and you need a heavy duty glue dot or zot to attach them

I just recently found the world of Prima flowers.

Meaning I bought a ton within the last few weeks from this site

Great deals on them but I bought mostly the paper flat ones - didn't come across the more dimensional rose ones - good thing or I'd be broke!

I love prima-next to Tim Holtz they are my favorite scrap product. They do add bulk, but like the others said, use a d-ring for your album and they work just fine. There are times I will plan my pages so that my flowers are on opposite parts of the pages on adjacent pages so that I don't have flowers right on top of each other when I close my book and they kind of 'fit' into each other-if that makes sense!

Welcome to sb.com!

This is like deja vu
This seems to be question of the month. Here are several recent threads about 'lumpy' pages:
3D embellishments
Storing very dimension layouts

Maybe a 'duh' question

Page Protectors

Oh some prima flowers are very bulky and some are just a little but it depends if all your lo are going into and album then just by the ones that won't stick out much there paper flowers aren't that bulky, but don't hold the fold well when pressed down, but I feel if we use such BEAUTIFUL flowers like primas, then why sick them in an album. Find a place where you can make your own little gallery and show case your work, I mean primas aren't that cheap so why not put that beauty to show. Even if it's an easle on top of a table, you'll get a lot of great reviews from visitors, take care, bye!!!

I do this with my minis especially because there are no page protectors in my 6x6 or 5x5 minis,,,,so if the flowers are in a place they'll hit other flowers, it not only makes it too bulky, but they push at eachother, flattening etc,,,,
