I have way too many pictures of various events and, as much as I tried, I could not narrow them down--I wanted them all in my scrapbook. I decided to try these as a way to put them in without having to scrap each one - I have used one spot for paper and journaling.
I love that you can put both horizontal and vertical photos in these. I would buy these again in a second!
I love these pages! My husband loves to take vertical as well as horizontal photos and I needed a way to display them as I will never get my 30 years of photos scrapped. These page protectors are perfect! I agree with others that the 12 x 2 pocket is odd however I plan to either ignore it or use it for journaling when I'm tight on space. I am really excited to have a high quality 'mixed' size page available to me.
I really do like the configuration that allows me to put vertical and horizontal pictures on the same page. I like how the 4X6 pockets hold the photos so snugly. When I scrapbook events with large numbers of pictures I like to use this type of protector rather than having to scrap every picture for use in a 12 X 12 protector. My only disappointment is the side pocket that is supposed to be 12 X 2 but is actually longer than 12 inches. I haven't yet figured out how to keep the paper from sliding out of the pocket. BUt, I did appreciate the ideas I read in previous reviews. Overall I would recommend this product. It is sturdy and fits the 3 ring binders nicely.
I have the exact same problem as another reviewer here. The "12x2" pocket is not that. It's more like 12 3/8 by 1 7/8. My 12" long paper falls right out. The 4x6 pockets are to scale though. I've remedied the problem by putting those cute metal clips on the top and bottom of the 12x2 strip on the outside of the page protector to hold in the cardstock. It works - but it's too bad I have to do that.
I really like pocket pages that offer a mix of vertical and horizontal photos. I have used the Becky Higgins Design G pages with sucess. The fact that they are not 12 x 12 does not bother me . . . too much. However, when I saw these, I was really excited to use them because: they were 12 inches wide to work well with other 12 x 12 layout pages, and I could use some of my 12 x 12 papers to make a nice decorative strip. When I got them, I was bummed that the strip slot was almost 12 1/2 inches long, and needed something added on to the top or bottom to fill the slot without the next page showing through. I put a tab up at the top to make a title for the page, which solved the problem . . . almost. So . . . then the strip would not stay in place. I put a small piece of (acid-free) scotch tape in the middle to close the pocket. Since I have several more of this design to use, I'm going to try to merge two strips of paper to make the right length for the pocket, probably with a fishtail cut so I can use that for title or captions or whatever. with a bit of re-design, this page will be terrific. Also, I might want one of the 4x6 pockets split into 2 3x4 pockets, so there is space to use up some of my filler card stock. Maybe the vertical pocket coulld be split to make 2 horizontal 4 x 3 pockets. We get these cards in many sets, but there are a limited number of pocket page designs for them to fit into.
If anyone has other creative solutions to any of these problems, I would be interested to read about them.
I am using these page protectors to add to my Project Life album because I seem to have more vertical photos. I haven't put anything in the 12x2 slot yet, but I can tell that the paper is going to slide out. I will probably add a brad or clip of some sort to hold the paper in place. I think I'd be happier with this configuration for the 4x6 and 6x4 photos and just have a short page protector rather that a 12x12.
The pages do fit nicely in this album.
The 12 x 2 strip, being open the full 12 inches, doesn't hold any paper in the slot, it falls out. Maybe if you slid in the paper from the top of the 12 x 2 slot this page would work better.
I purchased many packages of these relatively new We R Memory Keepers Page Protectors in all the different configurations hoping that they would allow me to add extra photos to my scrapbooks in less time. The description of this page states that the dimension of the left pocket is 12" x 2". That is not true, it is longer, therefore when trying to use 12x12 paper it falls right out. I spent way too much time trying to get this pocket to work so I gave up entirely. Also the entire pages protector itself is slightly larger than their others and it's very noticeable when I put them all together in my 3-ring binder that I use as my scrapbook. All in all I was very disappointed.
