I have SO many! In my defense I use them all the time, but sheesh...no more buying for me until I make a serious dent in my stash.

I know! After I found out how much old stash I can use in my Simple Stories album, I need to put a self-imposed freeze on my spending.

I have two binders full of them and use them, but not as much as I should. Good intentions but haven't followed through.

I have a bunch of the WRMK 12x12 divided page protectors. I'm not a big fan of them because I have issues with the pictures or cards coming out of the opened part. I tried to put some washi tape over it to keep it closed but the tape keeps peeling off. How do you all deal with that? I use them for regular scrapbook, not PL. If I have too many pictures for a layout, I thought these would be good to use.

Also, on some of those protectors, there is the long 2" section next to where the binders are, and these are not 12" long, they are longer. What do you put in there since a strip of paper isn't long enough and it looks really bad with just small part not being covered. I actually think using these type of pages makes scrapping harder and it takes longer for me.

I love them too. I use my tiny attacher and staple the pieces in the 2" by 12" (or longer) piece and that works for me. If you have problems with things falling out of other pockets, are you putting things back to back? It always helps me to have a photo on each side of the protector...I think the bulk helps things stay in the pockets.

I love them also....especially for gift albums you can add a lot of photos in the divided page protectors and mix in a 12x12 layout here and there and it makes it go so fast! and gift recepiant gets a homemade album that didn't take so long to make!! I LOve them.


It was fate that I would enjoy paper crafts...my name is Sharmon (like the TP)!

I will be interested to see what responses you get Scrappinnut. I have had trouble with pictures coming out of the openings at the top of my pages too...although my protectors weren't WRMK (not sure exactly where they were from.) I tried adding an extra piece of card stock between the pictures to make it thicker hoping that would work, but it didn't. A lot of the Peas love WRMK pages, so I bought some to try, hoping they would be my saving grace, but haven't given them a test run yet. Too bad the washi idea didn't work out.

i love them too. i use them when i have alot of photos, i scrap a 12x12 and put the remainder of them in divided p.p... i use the pebbles brand, from joanns (on line only) and they dont have the opening at the top, its in the middle, so they dont fall out. had the open top ones, and hated them so much.

I knew I wasn't alone with my addiction lol!

I don't really have a favorite style per say. I use several styles quite regularly. There are a couple styles that seem to have a little bit more trouble with photos wanting to slide out and I just use a mini glue dot or 2 to solve that issue. I like the staple idea too though - going to have to give it a try.

I found some on Amazon and bought them to use with my regular scrapping a couple years back. Then all of a sudden people were like "Project Life this and Project Life that" so I decided to go check it out about a year ago and it dawned on me that I owned most of PL and just didn't know it! Ha! I love divided PP. so easy to use. You get more pics in a book.

I just started using the divided page protectors. I bought AC and the dividing seams just tear apart. Does anyone else have that problem or was it a fluke? Is there a better brand to try?
