March Creating Keepsakes : Divided Page Protector Sources


(layout from Life Artist)

I've been getting some questions through email about sources for the divided page protectors seen in my latest Studio A column (Creating Keepsakes March 2008). Divided page protectors + organizational page protectors (like the Crop-In-Style image above) are one of my favorite ways to mix things up and take a break from the basic 12x12 format (or just get additional photos added to my albums).

Here's a sample image from the article (rub ons were added directly onto the page protector):


(as seen in Creating Keepsakes, March 2008)

Here are some online product sources:

6, 4x6 We Are Memory Keepers

Close To My Heart Photo Storage Pages (order through a consultant)

Scrapworks Scrap Smart System (this is what I used for my Week in the Life album)

Pebbles Inc. Share & Tell

The ones below are designed as organizational products for supplies (such as stickers, etc) but are GREAT for actual divided pages:

Crop In Style MEGA : 15 Assorted Pages

Crop In Style ADDICT : 21 Assorted Pages

C-Line Memory Book Organizer Pages

To see more samples and to read my article about tips for using divided page protectors pick up the March issue of Creating Keepsakes.

    Thanks Ali - that is a great idea - can't wait to get the issue and read up.
    And what a great way to keep those little priceless pictures in the mix.

    what an awesome idea writing right on the page protector! Thanks so much! someone gave me a newer style book from Creative memories(even though I don't use their products normally,they just connected scrapbooking and Creative Memories) with all the divided pages that I felt was useless for me but could not give back a gift and now I know what I can do with it! thanks again.

    Love, love, love these pages. Do you put anything on the reverse or just not worry about it.
    PS Really missed your not being at Scrapbowl this year. I so look forward to your classes.

    I love these multi-size page protectors, and was so glad to see some featured in your Studio A column. One question -- do you know if the Scrapworks pages will work in post-bound albums? It appears that they are made for ring-binding systems. Thanks!

    I love this idea and saw it in the March 2008 issue. I have it noted as one of the projects I would like to do with an old photo album my husband has of his childhood. It is falling apart, but I believe with a little time and creativity I can keep the same 'flavor' he had when he compiled it.
    Glad for the reminder - I have the dividers and broken album, it is time to play!

    Dear Dear Ali. I also love using divided page protectors for scrapping. HOWEVER, my preferred scrapping size is 8.5x11. I have had trouble finding the divided pages other than baseball card sleeves. In your vast experience, do you know where to get something fun like you use, but for my 8.5x11 size? Thank you for doing what you do and inspiring us all!

    Hi Ali,
    Your ideas are brilliant!
    Any plans to write a book on ideas using divided page protectors? I'd buy it!!!
