i don't often post on the weekends. but last night, i was doing my normal friday night routine. i was watching lifetime movies, and working on my laptop. and i happen to notice a new post from becky higgins on her blog. i have been patiently awaiting her new divided page protectors, and she had word that they had arrived at amazon, and were ready for ordering. i placed my order about 10 minutes later. i wasn't playing around. lol!
i'm a huge fan of using divided page protectors in my scrapbook albums. i have shared quite a few projects, where i have used them. including my school albums, vacation albums, and sports albums. i love the additional options that some of becky's new configurations will give me, when working these into my albums.
so i figured i would enable some of you, to make myself feel better about placing my order ;)
there are the individual packs, which contain 12 pages in a pack. design A and B, have been around for a while. i had ordered these quite a while ago. i have a bunch of the design C already, but from a different manufacturer. i have used this particular configuration a TON in my albums (school, vacation, and sports albums especially). i think designs D and E are both fun options. i have ideas for both already. but my favorite has to be design F. i'm loving this one, and can't wait to use it!
or you can get the big variety value pack, which contains 10 each of designs A, B, C, D, E, and F. this is the best value, if you think about it. and if you'll use each of those configurations. if you can't see yourself using a few of the designs, then i would buy them individually. there's also a value pack of just design A, which i'm assuming is one of her best sellers. if you're going to order at least 3 packs of this design, you might as well order the value pack, since you will get almost double for almost the same price. kwim?
i love these big envelopes pages. these came in becky's school and baby kits, from years ago, and i love them. i actually found some plain ones, sort of like these, a long time ago, and bought a ton of them. i have one at the beginning of each year, in my albums. in my family albums, and in the girls albums. i use them to seperate the years, and to hold any random memoriabilia from the year. i ran out a while ago, so i'm really excited that these are now available. and i think the dividers will be nice to use too. they can be used to seperate the years, or events, or just to mark things in the album that you want to draw attention too.
there are also regular 12x12 page protectors and 6x12 page protectors available. i'm well stocked up on 12x12 pages. but i ordered some of the 6x12, since i have used these in the girl's school albums, for adding in programs and newspaper clippings.
if you want to see and hear more about these, becky has a video HERE. there is also more info on her website. for the page protectors, and also her project life products. as much as i LOVE the concept of project life, and i set out to commit myself to it every year, i have yet to follow through on it. i completed one year. in 2009. i still have high hopes to work that in somehow. but i can definately say that i DO and WILL use all of these products.
