At a CTMH gathering I hosted I ordered the hostess 2 collection and included was an acrylic ablum - how to you make a clear album without the messy look of seeing the back of the pictures on the other side.

Thats supposed to be part of the "fun" of an acrylic album. You have to plan both sides of the page--double sided pp is perfect for this type of project.

Yeah.. I agree.. double sided paper works very well. Or, you can also cut duplicate shapes and glue them on each side .. that way, you can even hide the Glue Lines .....

I used double-side paper on the circles:
Berry Good Together Gift Album (pg 5, 6)
the backside:
Berry Good Together Gift Album (pg 7, 8)

I glued 2 different cup-cakes on the 2 pages just to add a little variety.

On the last page, it is actually a double sided journal page.

On this album, I used single side paper, but I cut duplicates and glue them on the other side of the clear page:

Love Clear Album - Pg 6 & 7

and the other side (the 2 rectangles):
Love Clear Album - Pg 8 & 9

Like Shirley said, I've covered the other side with paper but usually I just leave it as is, with the glue showing and all.

I just cover the back of the photo with PP before adhering to the page.
