Scrapbooking with Divided Page Protectors

Scrapbook pages created from photo sleeves are a popular way to get your photos in albums quickly with a dash of creative scrapbooking.

Add a Title

Design by Polly Maly

Use an odd-shape space like the 2x12-inch strip on this page for a title. The other pockets work well for standard-size prints. Simple embellishments, such as die-cut photo corners, emphasize the focal-point photo.

Make a Two-Page Spread

Design by Polly Maly

Dedicate a larger section to a more traditional scrapbook element, like the title shown here. Scrapbooking in small sections is easy on the budget. Everything used for this page was made with scraps from previous projects. When combining pages to create a spread, draw an element from the left-hand side onto the right to make a visual connection. The journaling block here mimics the title element on the left.

Editor's Tip: To save even more time and space, make a duplicate of your digital photos and add notes like names and places directly on the photos before printing.

Go Panoramic

Design by Polly Maly

Choose a panoramic photo to fill a wide, narrow pocket. Add letter stickers and printed journaling strips to create a title block.

Get Sideways

Design by Polly Maly

When using pages with unusual pocket sizes, keep in mind how you'll use the back side. Here, Polly repeated a panoramic element similar to the one on the front by including an after-the-game shot on the flip side. Don't be afraid to put a vertical photo in a horizontal space, as you would with a standard photo album.

Include a Larger Photo

Design by Polly Maly

Standard pocket pages have several 4x6" openings, so there isn't a spot for a focal-point photo. This configuration allows you to showcase a larger version of a favorite snapshot. A larger section, such as this 6x8" opening, works as a multipurpose pocket. Rather than tucking a large photo in it, consider using it for storing mementos, such as ticket stubs, programs, or brochures.

Editor's Tip: When space is at a premium, incorporate your journaling directly onto the photo. Here, the journaling fits on the field.

Pair Pics with Journaling

Design by Polly Maly

Create a quick and easy page by replacing a photo with journaling printed or written on a 4x6" matted card.
