    I just got my first two kits and I love them!! My question is – when you make such a beautiful page with all of the flowers and other embellishments, how do you put them into a plastic page for your album without them getting all schmused and crushed? Thanks!

      Patti gave this tip ages ago: before you start, trim 1/8 off your paper on two sides, making it 11-7/8 x 11-7/8; it makes a huge difference.
      If a page is really thick, I will only load that one page in the protector with a blank piece of cardstock in the back to hide all of the piecework and wires and stuff.

        Those are great tips, Peggy! Thanks!

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          I finally broke down and got a few of those D-ring albums for my PHAT pages LOL. BTW, I mean that both ways :P

          The others are still in the plastic 12×12 storage cases I bought at Micheal's.

          I love those D Ring albums…they hold my chunky pages just fine!

          me too:( This is so wrong considering how much effort is put into these pages. I have to go through and even tighten and fix some of my embellishments on my pages. They really need to be put away correctly!

          I have ben buying those plastic storage cases at Michaels also because they are cheap enough on sale and travel quite nicely. Last few times that I gave pages as gifts, I stuck them in those storage cases, wrapped a nice bow around it and called it a day.

          But the fact that I had a bunch of LO's lying abut in bins just stacking up was the reason why everyone in my family who was the focal point of a LO got their LO's at Christmas. I was actually excited to get rid of about 50 pages and thin the herd.

          I love me sweet cousins and nieces to death but do not need 50 LO's of them.

          BUT I did have to grad on page back from my uncle. He was carrying out a page to his car and I asked what he would do with that one page. In a very indelicate manner , He said he only wanted the photo and was gonna rip the rest of the Sh$$ off the page and toss the junk away. gasp gasp gasp

          Oh NO you didn't just say that!!!!! gasp. So I grabbed it from him and told him I'd get him a copy of the photo.

            OH MY!!! Well, that's one of the reasons I haven't given LO's as gifts to some people….. I know they wouldn't appreciate them…..

            As for the making postbound albums into ring albums…. go to Stuff….. then Very Cool Idea thread….. I even posted a pic of what it looks like…

            #86353
