I use a lot of printed embellishments in my cards. Rather than print one out each time, I print out a lot of different pictures and then store them in these protectors. I have about a dozen albums that all hold paperwork, with each album holding separate divisions (e.g. Christmas, Halloween, boys, girls). The top loading pages work the best although with some of the smaller embellishments I do have to run a strip of tape across the top to prevent them from falling out.
I bought these in a variety of sizes to try this "hybrid" scrapbooking idea. I am really impressed with this product. It is easy to use, but the photos fit in tight, so they aren't falling out like I was afraid they would. This is a great way to get through tons of photos and do a little or a lot of embellishing. I know the hybrid idea isn't for everyone, but this product is wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone!
This past winter I used these page protectors, as well as others, to create a baby book for my sister-in-law. Love them. She isn't much of a scrapbooker, so now all she has to do is slide in her own pictures and journal.
I am using these photo sleeves to add to my Project Life album since my daughter and I both tend to take vertical pictures. These photo sleeves fit nicely in the album and are of a nice weight and quality.
