Hi. I am wonderin gif any of you guys doing Project Life could answer a question for me. Are there any sheet protectors, refills that would fit paper that are 4.25 wide and 5.5 inches long? I thought I would throw my hat into to ring to do this when I was looking at some old goodies I have from high school. This is crucial though because if it doesn't fit any refills it's kinda not the answer. If you know of any refills that would work for this, please let me know what brand/kind would do this.
Thanks in advance!

Yes. I have some Pioneer 5.5x7. 5 refill pages that fit my 3-ring binder perfectly. I bought them at A. C. Moore. When I had an extra photo to add in a PL album that wouldn't go with another layout I used that page protector and it worked perfectly.

Okey doke. I guess that could work. I think I'm going to have to make my own. I have (i the past) sewn the seem that I needed into a sheet protector and cut away the rest. The thing is that I have alot of these and I want to be able to read both sides. I was hoping to get like 3 on a page. Thanks for the idea. Those 7.5x5.5 guys are pretty expensive out here at Hobby Lobby. I'll have to go later and grab some.

Thanks!

Why not use 6x6 page protectors? 4.25" x 5.5" is not a standard size for any page protectors I know of. Or if it's memorabilia you're wanting to store, there are Project Life 5x7 sealable envelopes.

You might just have to crop the 4.5" side down to 4" and mat them on a 4x6 piece of cardstock.

I am also going back through High School photos and they are around 3x5" ish size photos, but most vary in size. I am double matting them to make them look nice. But I scan everything first in case I need them later.

Good luck! The odd sizes suck!

Thanks for the ideas. I'm going to go look at what's available at Hobby Lobby, but I think the best idea is going to be to sew my own. I will end up with some odd pockets of space, but I can cut things down to fit. I can't cut the 4.25x5.5 items though. They are "candy grams" from youth group weekends and they are really important to read on both sides. But you are right about the 3.5x5 prints. Mine are mostly that size. I'll let you know what I come up with but that seems like the only way. I'll just use my varigated thread and get busy once I do the math. That will be the hard part. Thanks for the input though.

Ok, I've been thinking about this...Why not just use 12 x 12 page protectors, and cut holes in it for the items you need to display? If the items are 4.25 x 5.5 you could get 4 per sheet. Then when they are in the frame you could put strips of clear lamination over then cut to 4.50 x 5.75.

I hope you understand, it's clear in my mind...

Be safe,


Sandy

Yup. I was thinking along those lines. I am going to sit down and do the math. I think that I can work out something. I'll let you know what I come up with. Thanks Sandy

You are so welcome. If you use the 12 x 12 cardstock and cut out spots for the 4.25 x 5.5 things you would have room to journal if need be...Or if you have your journal from then maybe you could include some of the pages of it on the layouts???

That's what I was thinking! I could always include copies in there. I want to leave the journals intact. I always thought that it would make cool scrapbooks. I am going to figure that out sometime soon. I will be home alone this weekend so I'll have plenty of time to do it.
Be well and let me know if and when you have time to play, Sandy.

Guess what? Hobby Lobby has sheet proctectors for this exact size! I bought three packs today since they were half off. Not being one to leave well enough alone, I am still going to try my hand at making sheets that include the 3.5 photos and paraphanalia. But I did find them. Maybe I'll just leave well enough alone! Nah.

You could use 8.5x11 page protectors which would fit 4.25x5.5. Cheap and easy to find at the office supply store.

Staples also has half pint binder sheets which is half an 8.5x11 but they are a bit more expensive.

Thanks! I am going to MA this summer. My whole family is from there. We will be staying in Danvers. I have no idea if there is anything cool to do/see around there. Where do you live? All I know is that we'll be very close to my Nana.
