I love CM albums but recently switched to three ring. They take up a lot of room. I really want to go back to CM albums. Problem i have is i like to use pocket pages. I wish CM would get on the bandwagon and make pocket pages. Anyone have a solution?

My MIL uses CM albums exclusively, and she has some type of pocket pages in her albums. I think CM calls it Picfolio?

I don't know where you could get pocket pages for the CM albums, but I do have a question about their side-loading sleeves. I love the fact that they are now offering the option of these sleeves so you can just slip in the pages. But the cost of these is horrible! $26 for 15 page protectors?!

I've been using WRMK 3-ring binders for years now, but I was just browsing through a travel album I did in 1998 with a CM album. I love the way the double-page spreads looked cohesive, but I would never go back to using regular CM pages because of the permanence of not being able to add it pages later. I wouldn't mind using a CM album for another travel album I'm working on, but only if I could slip the pages into page protectors.

Has anyone found another manufacturer that makes these at a much more reasonable cost?

Those slide in page protectors are expensive, aren't they? I haven't found another manufacture for the slide in pages, but what I do is wait until their annual 25% off everything sale and order a bunch then.

OP-you might want to check out CM's Picfolio albums and see if those would work. I've never seen one in person so I can't help you, but it's easy to find a local consultant to you online.

CM's newer side loading sleeves are enough like pocket pages to me that I am happy with them. They are also no more expensive then the old pages and protectors combo was - 15+11. Though pricey, I really ;like that they are side-loading and there is no gap between pages. But, I did not know about hat 25% off everything sale- will have to watch for that!

I am so confused by CM's method. Someone gave me two coversets for gifts and I've never used CM before. If I'm reading their site correctly, I have to purchase pages (because that has the staple to keep the page in the book) and then a protector to go over it. I don't want their "page" - the blank white paper because I use colored/pattern paper and don't want the extra weight of that blank cardstock in my book, but I don't see a way around it.

Does anyone know if there are just page protectors on the market that fit CM albums so I don't have that extra CM page? (Like how a regular postbound or 3 ring binder would work?)

Thanks!!

Pioneer makes the slide in pages for strap hinge albums.
I bought several packs of 25 at a Joann's.
I also love CM covers and using these works just like post bound or 3 ring

Also I have a stash of older pages and page protectors and
I use them as slide in pages as well.
I scrap my layout and slide it in.


ETA- they are pioneer top loading sheet protectors
Style no. RMWSB25 25 pack
Patented keyhole design allows pages to fit most post bound
3 ring or strap hinge style memory books.
I also have a 5 pack. Style no RMW-5

Hope that helps.

Here is the 25 pack at Joann's. their description doesn't say strap hinge
But click on the image , in the upper right corner it does and the style no is the same As the ones I buy.
You can also check stock at local stores.

Found a link to the 5 page pack. They include a very thin white sheet of paper inside each protector.

CM has Side Loading Sleeves that are basically a page protector for those of us who don't want the extra bulk of the page and protector combo. Also, the side loading keeps the layouts in place no matter what and dust free. I use these almost exclusively now. If you don't have a CM consultant in your area I would be happy to help you with anything you may want.

I always just made a pocket for CM pages --
1) Cardstock - get 3 strips of card stock and create a "hinge" for each closed side of the pocket. Adhere one hinge (per closed side) to the cardstock outside, the other side of the same hinge to the CM page (inside the jeeping). When I wanted more room, I pleated the hinge to permit more expansion.
2) CM page -- cut off the top part of the page (to the height you will ultimately want the front of the pocket to be), remove staple hinges, adhere jeeping to jeeping. If you'll need more room, adhere a fun foam strip to the bottom jeeping, then adhere the jeeping of the cut down page to the top of the fun foam.

I don't think you don't have to buy the CM scrapbook pages and page protectors. The description of the Side Loading Sleeves state: "Side-Loading Sleeves give you the option to slide your completed pages in and out and rearrange them as you’d like. Use them as a protector for decorated paper pages or as a way to display portraits, greeting cards or memorabilia. Use the included white page inserts as your backdrop or add color with paper or photo mats." That's probably what you would need.

I use mainly CM albums & you really got me thinking! What if you took a 12 x 12 divided page protector and cut out two of the pockets leaving the attachment side full length. Then after trying to add to the CM album trim the side as needed & hole punch where needed if the holes don't match up for the straps to go through. That way you would have a page protector with 8 photos. I am going to try it!
On other threads Peas have suggested just pasting 6 photos on a CM page & that will work too.

Oh wow! Thescrappyone, thanks for the links. Pioneer also has pocket pages. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001I6M6GG/ref=mw_dp_mpd?pd=1&qid=1361548759&sr=8-1
In the description it says it fits 3 ring, post and hinge. I just bought a 3ring but will try this on my unopened cm albums. Thanks.
