Lord help me I just purchased my second Sn@p album! That's my second order in two weeks for Sn@p stuff. I'm almost done with the teal one - did my honeymoon and 5-year anniversary trips to Mackinac.

Besides feeling guilty for spending almost $50.00 (I've been on a freeze for three years!) I am loving his method.

For anyone else that uses Sn@p...I noticed the 4x6 pockets are oversized. Do you just let your 4x6/ float around or do you mat then? I you mat, what size do you cut the paper?

Thanks!

I'm doing my travel scrapbooks using Snap too! I just let my photos & ephemera float around. My Selphy prints slightly smaller than 4x6 anyway...

I too love these albums. I have 7 different ones. One for my son, one for my daughter, two Christmas albums, one vacation and one for the fun stuff we do in summer and one for my sons cub scout stuff.
I let my 4x6 pictures float although sometimes I use a small amount of washi tape to hold the picture in.

I just finished one jammed full of my Oct 2012 Hawaii trip photos. (It was so full I seriously considered splitting it into two volumes.) I'm actually kind of aggravated by the way the 4x6s float around; I don't think I'm going to mat them but I think I will glue the two photos in each pocket to each other so they aren't constantly showing white borders on some sides.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like the white overlap showing! I was thinking about running adhesive to stick my pictures together too. .

I just bought two to make recipe books for my children. They've been after me forever and I think these will be perfect. I'm thinking I'll even include a few pics here and there of us cooking.

I'd love to do a vacation album but I'm just not sure I can fit it all in there. Do you have pics?

I love the Snap size too & anxiously awaiting the leather albums...I already have projects done to go in them!

I did just notice the oversized 4x6 size, but I generally just let the pics float around. Embracing imperfection is my motto in life. I sorta like the way you see the pages thru protectors too.

I'm so out of the scrapbooking world...I didn't even know what this was. But I just googled and it seems like it's kind of like a smashbook? They look soooo fun! I actually bought my first Simple Stories book and a few accessories not too long ago..haven't done anything with it yet..

Missy - it's kind of a combo of smash (with the insert pages) and project life with the divided pages. I've always preferred scrapping small - 8x8's I did forever and a day. I did my pregnancy/daughters 1st year in 12x12 simple stories format and love that too! I had a blast making my own cards, etc.

My goal is to add some photos of my travel book to the gallery this weekend. I even stapled in brochures we picked up with info on the places we visited, a sticker I got for climbing the giant rock, etc.

I too am loving the Sn@p albums! They're easy and fast and I find that I'm using a LOT of my embellies just for one slot. As for the large 4x6, I include a lot of thicker embellishments so when all is said and done, the 4x6 pictures don't really float that much.
