I have added 2 so far!
I used 2 divided 6x12 and slipped in an additional 6 pictures. Then used washi and a tag to add a date and journal for each pic.

I haven't on any of my traditional PL albums but I just did my ds's baby book using the Baby PL kit and I did include some smaller protectors. I can't remember which style they are but the look like Design A just cut in half lengthwise. They worked out great for some months that I had more pictures for. I also bought some of the 3 4x4 protectors to use in our Disney album for our upcoming trip. I thought I might like to include some Instagrams.

I sometimes use smaller page protectors. I've used the 5x7 and the 8x10. A couple of times when I've had a lot of pictures for a week I've added the Design H protectors.

I was so so excited when I saw becky added 5x7, 8x10, and 8.5x11 -- all in horizontal and vertical. I'm working on December right now and I've got tons of stuff. I've got a single horizontal 8x10 of my daughter in her Christmas dress, another of the kids in front of the tree, several 5x7 pictures of key photos, and a few 8.5x11, one vertical, one horizontal, which show my son's Christmas art and his letter to Santa. I wish I had the journaling done to share it. Anyway, I love adding in all those extra sizes. It makes it feel like you're doing one of those cute mixed and matched mini album but on large scale.

I sometimes use my page design A or any other, and just cut off the last third or half of the page. I tend to have a tough narrowing down my photos, and I don't like to fill my pickers with just photos, I like to use fillers too.

Yes, I am using baseball card sheet protectors, coin holders, every different design of Becky Higgins and WRMK pages I can find, 8.5 x ll sheet protectors and I cut down and sew pages to fit some of my memorabilia. I love the eclectic look of it all!

Yup! I've mostly used the 6x12 insert with spots for three 4x6 photos on each side (American Crafts, I think). But I've also used 8x8, 8.5x11, and a plain 6x12.

I really like the variety, and I think they'll come in especially useful for DS's book when he starts preschool soon.

I tend to keep lots of memorabilia, so I am definitely looking forward to using some of the smaller insert pages.

I've been mixing pp sizes in my albums for some time now and it is a GREAT way to add variety to ANY album, not just Project Life. Some things just don't require 12x12 to preserve the memory, tell the story or get the point across.
