It has 2 horizontal across the top, then a thin 1 1/2" horizontal strip that is 12"+ across. The bottom is 3 vertical 4 x 6 slots. Really like the combo of the vertical and horizontal spaces. But would you believe this page is almost 1/2" shorter than the other brands?? They are a nice weight plastic and clear, but why in the world did they make it so much shorter than other brands? The other 3 brands I have been using are all pretty much the same, some slightly wider, but nothing I can't live with. So disappointed in this one, but will try and few and see if it really matters in the album. The center slot is actually cut "in" to the side, indented so it can use a 12" piece ok, at 1st had a hard time trying to get it open, and was a little hard to slide patterned paper into it. However, this is a great space to put a title and a few embellishments!

Oh no! Thanks for the heads up on these. I haven't seen them yet, but I'm sure I would have bought them when they arrived at our store.
Are the 4x6 photo slots true to size, or do you have to trim them?

I have been using Recollections brand for a while, but got that 50-page pack and discovered the same thing too with the top two horizontal pockets. I will use what I have, but I won't buy any more of these. I will still buy the 10 pack.

All they would have had to do was to make the center strip wider! Maybe will see if there is someone to call about it as would like to have this option to use! Perhaps they didn't realize this one ended up short?
