I'm so incredibly behind in my scrapping. I'm deligently working on scrapping a Christmas album chronologically. I have a beautiful K&Co post bound album, but according to the instructions, I can only add page protectors once. I'm not sure how to expand the posts, but I'll figure it out. I'm not a real lumpy scrapper, but I do use pop dots fairly often. Anyone know how many page protectors I could put into a post bound album?

I've bought several of these to replace the posts, but I haven't gotten around to it. The following is a link to a YouTube video on how to install them correctly. J's online has them on sale. They might be on sale at the store too, but if not you can always use a coupon. HTH

I made my DH an album for our 20th anniversary using a K & Co. post bound album. I have 50 page protectors in it! It is very heavy & all the pages are fairly flat. It is too big, but I wanted all the years in one album. He it!

When using longer posts, put spacers in between every 5 pages or so. You can make them with chip board or CTMH sells plastic spacers.

Spacers are long strips the width of the part of your page protector that has the holes.

I always wondered what those cardboard strips were for!

I think it all kind of depends on how durable the album is. I love the snapload things. I have only put them in one of my albums so far but plan on doing it in most of them eventually.

I have no idea where I would find those Snap Load things. I doubt our Michael's has them. I did see I could order from Paper Wishes 3 sets in a pack for $12.99 plus 15% off today for me for being a new buyer. Anyone know where I might be able to get these other than Paper Wishes?

I get the albums with 10 pages and put in 8 more pages before I start putting in completed pages. I'm a mewdium bumpy scrapper so the albums are full by the time I am done.
