Just curious if I am the only one who has an issue with how items in divided page protectors "back up" to each other. I can't stand how you can see the back of whatever is on the other side if they aren't perfectly aligned. I hope that makes sense. I try to adhere the two items together so I don't have that problem but some times I still get a bit of the patterned paper or a photo back that shows through. It makes the whole page look sloppy to me. In an ideal world thee would be a place that I could have my photos printed on double sided photo paper or something to cut down on that but alas I don't think that is possible. When I look at the photo gallery I don't see other people with this problem. How do you avoid it?

I have this problem too... Not sure why it happens but I just ignore it otherwise I'd go crazy!

I don't let it bother me. I use PL products. They were created to make scrapping simpler. If I worried about things lining up perfectly I would just scrap normally. It is easier for me to let it go and use divided page protectors than to scrap 12x12.
If it bothers you that much either don't use divided page protectors or only use one brand (Sn@AP, PL, MAMBI, PF, etc) so that the cards at least would all be the same size.
With my divided page protectors I'm not going for "show worthy" I'm going for "documented and done". With my 12x12 I'm more about the "showiness" and creativeness of the page.
Why do you use divided pages instead of 12x12 scrapping? Are they fulfilling that need? If not what needs to change to make sure that need is fulfilled? Are divided pages really how you want to scrap?

It's not even a blip on my radar of things to be bothered by. The benefits to using divided protectors far outweights any negatives for me.

Sometimes I use divided page protectors in my scrapbook albums. Usually I back the photos or whatever on patterned paper or cardstock that more perfectly fits the protector space and does not slip or slide. If there are two pieces of pp or cs back to back then they can be cut exactly the same size and attached to each other so that no stray edges appear.

Oooooh yes. It drives me nuts when things don't fit into the slot perfectly, which is pretty much always.

I just use a small dot of adhesive to keep the two pieces together.
