Hi everyone! I'm struggling with a layout and I would really appreciate some ideas on this. I'm trying to scrap my RSVP cards. Not every single one of them, but I had planned 2 12x12 pages for the RSVPs that I liked best - the ones that had the best song recs or messages, plus the ones from my in-laws, etc.

My cards are about 5.25 x 4".

Thanks in advance!

By the way, I do like to use the originals. If my house burns down, I know to grab the scrapbooks first and don't want to have to think about grabbing stuff from everywhere so I pretty much always include the originals when I can.

I scrap originals to everything. I don't want to see the originals ruined, so I figure they have better survival in the books than in a box.

I used the clear stick on sleeves in myDD wedding book. I put reception pics and staggered them so could get a lot on page. I hope you get what I mean. I'd take a pic, but I'm in Tampa. Getting ready to go to Orlando to downtown Disney and Cirque du Soleil.

What about using flip folders some call them flip flaps. You may be able to use all of your RSVP cards then. This example is using a bigger size but it might could just make them to your needed size. I know you use to be able to by these "flaps" by the package but I have not seen them around in a while. Good Luck!

Aww thanks Linda I know I'm putting more pressure on myself than usual since this is pretty much the most important album I will ever do.

Shurl, have a great time in Florida!! If I'm still stuck when you get back I'll pester you for a photo

I'm curious about the flip folders. How do they work? I searched for flip folders and "flip flaps" but I didn't find many examples- the one I did see, I couldn't really tell how it works. Thanks so much for your help!

What about a photo flip flap album? I have never done it but I found a DIY tutorial, maybe that could give you a better idea. I know is not a LO but something to think about. Here is the link:

Also CTMH use to actually sell the 4X6 sized ones but I am not sure if they still do.

Well you are under some stress so it is hard to think sometimes. You are right about it being the most important book & I don't blame you for being worried about it.

I found them in the store. Called flip pockets. Look closely at the packaging and you can see them on a page. The adhesive is a line on the top. You just stick them on the page.
