I have just finished my first scrapbook. It is quite thick. I have put in the metal extenders for the binder and it fits nicely, however the open end sticks open. I have tried to put in more extensions and it does lay flatter, but when you go to open the scrapbook it's very floppy. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
I converted my only post-bound album to the Snapload system, to match the rest of my albums. That sorted out the "floppy" problem.
My fullest album contains 34 LOs and that's about as full as I'd want it to be. Any more, and it would be too unwieldy to lift. I'm going to have to separate out the holiday pages and give them an album of their own. My pages aren't really thick and dimensional, but they aren't flat either.
How many LOs have you got in your album? Do you add a lot of 3D elements?
I also switched from post-bound to D-ring binders. I like being able to slip the pages and have them stay flat. Plus the fact that you can add to the album easily, even if you want to add a page in between ones you've already done.
I used to have this issue until I switched to the Snapload system. One thing I learned was to make sure I had extra spacers made out of heavy thick chipboard. Depending on what I am scrapping and how thick I think the book will end up - I normally put a spacer every 4-5 pages then made sure my Snapload was really tight. Sometimes I even have to "duct tape" the Snapload shut. I will never go back to metal extenders again.
