More Divided Page Protectors

Here are a few more layouts using divided page protectors. I love mixing them in my scrapbook albums along with 12x12 and 8.5x11 pages. This layout is from the Ali Edwards class, Yesterday and Today, that she taught over at BPS. This layout is true to Ali's clean style of photos+ words. No patterned paper in sight! I love the results.

So far I've done the Valentine's Day layout, (see previous post), and this one. So I still have an empty side to fill. That is something to consider when using divided page protectors. One solution is to do your layout using both the front and back. It's still a 2-page spread, but the pages are not across from each other. Another option is to be ready to scrap a few layouts using the protectors, like I am doing now. It's just another way to stretch your creativity and see what you can come up with!

For this last layout, I wanted to feature my husband since the previous layout was about me. I pulled one picture from my Library of Memories Storage Binders of Phil and his camera. Then I remembered I had a few more pictures of Phil and his camera in my Category Drawers. Then I remembered I had this Bo Bunny Mama-Razzi paper and stickers. In no time at all I had this fun layout.
I used the same basic design scheme as the Valentine's Day layout. Why reinvent the wheel? Using different pictures and paper, you get very unique results. Have you ever scraplifted yourself? I bet you have enough layouts to give it a try!


  1. I adore the photos of your husband behind the camera. Especially the one with him lying on the floor to get a pic of the cat. Priceless!

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog on the Sassy Lil' Sketches blog hop. I love your idea of using the divided page protectors and will be lifting this idea very soon.

  3. What great pictures in the 2-pager!! And I love all the circles you used.
    Love the camera pics of your DH... too funny. Love that paper line!!!

  4. Sue, I am so inspired by your posts on the divided page protectors. I purchased some of these pages several months ago but haven't yet used them. I think I need to get them out now and create a few "easy" layouts. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. this layout technique is really awesome. I did Project 365 last year and used that format. great inspiration. =)

  7. Hi, I've come over from TwoPeas.

    I'm starting to do the odd 8.5x11 page and have the same considerations as the divided page protectors. If you do one, you still have the other side to consider!

  8. Great journaling in your perspective layout. I like the repetition and photos to tell the story.

    You are making me want to try out these divided page protectors.
