Documenting with Divided Page Protectors

A few weeks ago we took a quick weekend trip to Moab. It was my first time there and I loved it! We got so many great pictures and I was so excited to go home and make a mini album with all my photos. I have have been wanting to play around with our 8" x 8" Divided Page Protectors for awhile, now, and I figured this would be the perfect opportunity.

If you don’t recognize the black and white striped album, I will tell you a little secret . . . it is the Seasonal Stripes 8" x 8" Designer Ring Album from the holiday catalog.  It is amazing what a little spray paint and some masking with washi tape can do!

I love doing large, full-spread pictures in my albums and I don’t even mind that it is not in a page protector—I actually kind of like it that way! I just use a soft gloss photo paper so the pictures don’t get fingerprints.

I love adding digital stamps to my photos using My Digital Studio. The “Will Travel” stamp comes from the Wanderlust Stamp Brush Set.  

I had fun combining This and That stickers, papers from the This and That Journal, and elements from My Digital Studio

I was surprised by how much fun it was to use the divided page protectors with all of the 2" x 2" squares.  I had a postcard that I wanted to use, so I just adhered it to the front of the page protector.

For this side of the page protector, I cut up a 4" x 6" photo to take up some of the space. I love how it looks broken up like that.

I had a lot of fun using the Show & Tell Photopolymer Stamp Sets. With all of the arrows and fun words, it is such a great set for memory keeping.

I loved this photo my husband took of a fallen down tree on the side of a trail. I turned it into a background for the digital stamp from the Do Your Best Printables in MDS. The cute “Let the sun shine” card comes from the Chillin Out Pocket Cards download.

I hope this inspires you to do some memory keeping with these fun page protectors.  The possibilities are endless!

    I love how you used the page with all the little squares. I could not figure out how that would be useful for me and now you've given me a great idea.
