For mine and my SOs 1 year anniversary I'm going to make him a scrap book. It'll be my first one, so I'm starting from scrap.
After reading a few of the other posts I've noticed people mentioning "page protectors". Are these just those plastic sleeves you put in binders, or are they different? I'm not sure if I like the idea of my pages being covered in plastic, so would it be possible for me to just cover the photos and leave the rest of the page au-natural?
Also I've heard mention of "cardstock". What is this? I live in Australia so there aren't stores around like jo-anns and I'm thinking maybe I just either haven't heard of cardstock, or it's called something else. A description would be great Smiley

page protectors are ususaly just those plastic page cover thinggies. They are ugly, but the nice ones are very see through, and barely noticable. i use the cheap ugly ones, and just take them out when showing off. They dont just protect the pages though, they keep the pages in the book. If you just 3 hole punch the pages to put them in the book, the paper will rip quickly.

cardstock is basicaly just archival quality (usualy anyways...) heavy, heavy, sturdy paper. Also, carstock usualy has color all the way through, instead of just printed on the top. I dont know if thats always or not. all mine is. Which matters if your ripping it or something, i guess.

Ok, thanks Smiley I'm actually binding the pages together myself, and not using a pre-made book/folder. Hopefully it works. If not, I'll think of something!

Just make sure if you're binding it yourself, use acid free paper, or the photos will get ruined after a time.

Take that you stupid corn!
