I bought the WRMemory Keepers 5-1/2 x 8 page protectors for my December Daily and was going to make the cover myself, but I'm feeling lazy and want to know if they would fit in a Sn@p album. TIA

If the holes don't line up exactly use a hole punch or crocodile to add them. I'd think as long as the 8" measurement is the vertical, where it goes into the binder, you should be all set.


...and there was music...

I just went and checked and you would have to punch new holes.

I used an album that I got from Ormolu (I think it was 6x8) and the page protectors I used were from an office supply store. I read about it from Christina Paustenbaugh's blog! If you do a search on her blog, it was what she did for last year's DD.

Anyway, I didn't like that the protectors had a bunch of holes because they were meant to be used in a Franklin Planner-type binder that has six holes. So I covered the holes - all of them - with a few layers of yellow polka-dotted washi tape from Target, and then went back and punched in only the holes I needed for the 3-ring binder from Ormolu. It really looks cute and you'd never know there were more holes!

I am using that album for my One Little Word class with Ali. If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to take a picture of what it looks like and upload. It's just a thought...I know I don't like a lot of extra holes either but I'm also a fan of using the protectors that I have instead of buying specific ones for specific albums.

Bunnylady, great idea with the washi tape. I'd love to see a picture.
