i love the idea of having page protectors because it keeps everything together, but then you cant really have any demension to the page or have little pull outs etc. I was wondering how many veteren scrapbookers use the page protectors since they usually come already in the scrapbooks when you buy them.  Have  you had any problems not using them? thanks for the input.

I use page protectors. I finally figured out how to use them with interactive elements, like pockets and windows, I just use and exacto knife and cut a slit for a pocket element, so the card or tag can come out, and cut the window the same as the door on the page. Hope that helps.

I use them.  If i didn't my pages would get all ripped and tattered, the page protectors well...protect them.  Of course, all of my pages tend to be flat...

I use page protectors.  I cut them to accomodate pull-outs and such.  I think that you can buy deeper protectors, but I don't know where.

I use page protectors, but then I prefer either post bound or three-ring binder style scrapbooks where there would be no way not to use page protectors... I just don't like the uneven way straphinge books lay along the strap...

Wow, thanks for the link!  Using three ring binders would be alot cheaper than buying the big albums, plus you could buy the ones with a clear cover and decorate the front!  Awesome!  Cheesy

Just realize that three ring binders from the office supply store may not be archival/acidfree/whatever - if you use good page protectors, it may not really matter... it also depends on how "archival" paranoid you are - I'm a librarian so I have a good deal of "it better be safe for my photos" - sometimes too much of that urge, lol! (actually though, I'm getting my own baby pics out of a magnetic album, but I'm so attached to the album from my childhood that I'm going to put the good pages back in - I figure inside the page protectors, with maybe a blank page at the front and back to keep them from touching anything but the metal rings - they ought to be safe enough =)

also of course if you want to use 12x12 paper the regular binders won't work - but sometimes I think 12x12 has been overrated - I do both...

at michaels they have really nice leather scrapbooks that have the 3 rings and are made to hold 12x12 paper and they also sell three ringed blank pages in black or white, archival to go in them.
