My husband and I have just returned from a cross-country trip and I want to do a scrapbook with some of the photos. I went to a craft store yesterday and went wild buying papers and "puffy" embellishments. I also bought a scrapbook with top-loading sheets. It dawned on me that this is probably not going to work. What kind of protectors do you use for 3D embellishments? What kind of scrapbook? I'm eager to get started but I think I've goofed on the very basics. Thank you!

I just use the regular page protectors that come with my albums. But I use D-Ring albums which are good for the 3D embellishments and thick pages.

Thank you for the advice and for sending me to the earlier thread. (I should have checked the forum more thoroughly.) I'll start searching for D-Ring binders in my area because I hate to give up the idea of using those great puffy Mount Rushmore stickers I found! Cheers.

I use the standard 12X12 page protectors but trim 1/4 inch off the sides on my base. If the LO is too bulky then only use one LO per page protector. hope that helps!

You don't need to trim the edges of bulky pages if you use d-ring albums - the page protectors are slightly bigger

I'm doing some Black Hills pages now...where did you find the Mt. Rushmore stuff?

I found Reminisce Jet Setter South Dakota stickers and Sandylion Essentials Casino stickers at A.C. Moore. I live in Virginia. (The casino stickers were because we went to Deadwood, too. We loved the Black Hills!)

Thanks! We went to Deadwood too, but we actually didn't gamble at all! We enjoyed the shootouts in the street though.

Oh yeah, and I use the d-ring albums too.
