My Weekend Project– Scrapbooking My “Refrigerator” Pictures
Not really just “refrigerator”, but the ones on my ribbon boards and in drawers and creeping and crawling and falling off my desks and in my planners and stuck EVERYWHERE. It’s time for some reorganizing. And no, I don’t “just have a drawer” to stick them in…so here they are.
Misty asked a few months ago if there was an easier way to scrapbook if you don’t have a lot of time, and I began thinking of some projects I have put off for lack of time “me pictures” and others like these.
I ran across this post by Ali Edwards on Divided Page Protectors and decided to shop around for options just to mix in with my other albums when I wanted. I ordered these from http://www.scrapbooking-warehouse.com after Froogling for good prices on such items.

I thought I’d use them as gifts, but ended up using all but one pack on this project. I really liked them. My only complaint is that I like blank spaces, and you need some cardstock or something as spacers to keep the pages from feeling “floppy” if they are not full yet. For these pages, I’d recommend 3 ring or jump ring (as I used) binders instead of “post-bound” if you need to move photos around, or want to add to it over time…you have to take these out to add to them very easily.
I had ONE, make that THREE qualifications for this project, that it be EASY and done in like 2 hours, that it be EXPANDABLE, and that is not require a lot of TAPE of my precious “MOMMY FAV” photos I love most. Here with the fam here Saturday, I worked on it off and on all day and part of Sunday…probably 2-3 hours altogether, and it’s SO NICE to have all those photos organized now!
I may or may not make up a journaling page here or there to insert in a 4X6 slot on my computer. That would be cool for when guests come see it, but time is limited. Simple options are good…if you do, fine; if you don’t, fine!
