That should work for most all of the pages. I'll try it out. : )

Thanks so much!
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Page Protectors on: May 27, 2013 07:44:10 PM
Okay, I did some searching, and I didn't find anything, so here I go.

I'm making my first REAL scrapbook. I have a bunch of pages put together so far and haven't really worried about putting it into an actual book. But now I'm almost done with it. The problem I am having is that I have a lot of interactive things on some of my scrapbook pages. I.e. a letter is glued to the page, so you can unfold the letter to read it, there are little "books" that you can open the pages of to reveal quotes from the book. Things like that.

It's a small scrapbook; the pages are only 6x6. I have page protectors for all of the pages, but... that's the problem. The page protectors protect the page, but don't allow whoever is looking through it to unfold things. I don't want to have to take the page out every time I want to unfold and read a letter. But at the same time, I want to be ABLE to read the letter.

I suppose I could leave some of the pages without protectors, but then how would I get the page to stay in the book? The page is 6x6 and the book itself is a little larger than that for the posts.

Am I making sense? Any suggestions?

I decided not to chance it. Instead I scrapped it for parts--took it completely apart to use the parts in other projects, then went out and bought a regular scrapbook instead.

I hadn't even thought of an acrylic sealer! Thanks so much!

I'm definitely going to test this and see if it works out...

I was given a photo album at my recent baby shower. I don't like it much, and wanted to give it a do-over, and kind of scrapbook it in a way. The inside pages are those card-board type with sticky stuff and a clear film over them. You know, you pull up the film, stick your pictures to the pages, and then place the film back over them.

So here's my question(s): Can I use those pages to sort of make a cheapy scrapbook with? Will the stickiness hold up over time or should I glue the pictures and elements to the page? What about the clear film cover? If someone tries to pull it up years later, will it damage the pictures or whatever is beneath it? It may end up being a cheapy scrapbook, but I want it to last.

Thanks in advance.

If you sew them together you could put a cover on it using hook and loop so you can throw it in the wash.

Put a cover using hook and loop? What's hook and loop?

Or what about one of those shopping cart seat covers for when your baby is big enough to sit in one?

I would jump at this one, but I've already been given three or four of these and don't need one! But thanks for the suggestion.

I would suggest Staz On stamp pads, as they are permanent and would allow you to glaze over once they are fully dry.

I'm at a loss, and I'm hoping someone here will have the wisdom to help me out.

I had a baby shower for my boy a couple months ago. They set up a pretty plate with markers for everyone to write their well-wishes on for me, so that I can hang it up and keep it as a keepsake. Here's my problem: The markers they used were the cheap crayola washable markers. That means touching the writing even the slightest bit smears it away.

I was thinking maybe there was some kind of spray I could spray over it to preserve this keepsake? I have several different clear glosses, but I'm afraid to even try for fear of messing up the writing. Does anyone know of anything in particular that would work? Or a suggestion? I'm definitely drawing a blank.

As far as tiny bottles go, if you want something that doesn't move inside, the two-part resin is the way to go. Difficult sometimes and annoying, but it's the clearest and it dries completely.

I tend to use Easy Cast, myself. I also tend to get all of my bottles ready ahead of time and do them in big batches, or have another resin project on the sidelines. Otherwise, you end up mixing way too much resin for just the tiny little bottles and waste a bunch of it.
