I am about to start scrapbooking, I am so new to this that I havent even purchased anything yet! I cant wait to get to the shops and start buying!

My question is this... I would like to use the 12 x 12 paper as the starting point and have watched several videos on youtube where this is done. The bit I dont understand is what you then do with your page? Does it get stuck to something stronger and then tied together with others? If so what is it stuck to?! Or are they just stored seperately? Help!

Each 12x11 page will be inserted into a page protector in your album. You will see when you get your album. If you want the pages to look like they are connected, get a post bound album.

It seems like the favorite album here is the faux leather We R Memory Keepers, which comes in many fun colors and is available at Target, some Michaels, and online at various stores. They come with 10 page protectors already in them, and refills are fairly inexpensive. Welcome and have FUN!

I am an odd one, as I still like the post bound albums. I like that the pages are close together.
But then again I like to do double page layouts...those are when the pages that face each other have a flow to same papers, same subjects ect.

Most albums you buy, no matter if it a post bound or a 3 ring, they most likely will have the page protectors in them.
The page protectors are what you put your finished pages in.

You came to the right place to start, the Pea's love to help out

A lot of 12x12 patterned paper is fairly sturdy -- it's called "cardstock weight" -- but you will want to get an album and plastic "page protectors" to store your projects in. Some people make what are called mini albums (usually with all the pages on a specific topic), and sometimes they will bind the pages together themselves, or use a chipboard album as the base of the book, and in these cases they don't normally use page protectors. For most layouts, though, scrapbookers will store them in an album with the plastic protectors to keep them clean from dirt/oils on hands. I personally like to use 3-ring albums, for the ease of moving pages around and for doing multiple page sizes in one album. We R Memory Keepers has nice quality albums -- I like the metal corners on the covers -- but there are lots of brands to choose from. Hope that helps.
