2009 Album Divided Pages

I've decided it's time to finish up my 2009 scrapbook, so I recently went through my completed layouts and my remaining printed photos & memorabilia to determine which stories I needed to scrap to complete it. I realized that I needed an introduction page for the album, and I chose a divided page protector and photos of our home as the title page.

Of course, this meant that I needed to fill in the back of that divided sheet, so I chose to highlight photos of Robbie in his collectibles room.

I really like how these page protectors allow me to create quick and simple layouts when I have a group of 4x6 photos to showcase, yet there's still room to add some patterned paper or cardstock or a sticker or even some washi tape!

Watch for more layouts from 2009 as I continue recording the stories from that year! Do you have any albums or projects that you want to complete this summer?

What a lovely album. Oh you've made me want to take similar photos now for my project life :)

Good question. I'm hoping to make an album of our summer cruise. Those photos of the collectables room are brilliant!

It's always a puzzle trying to figure out what to do with the backside of those page protectors! I want to finish up old Disney albums (1999 & 2001) that are mostly done just missing a few pages and all the divider pages for my LOM albums.

Oh goodness, where to start. :)

I like divided page protectors for just those reasons. Nicely showcasing parts of your home too. Those photos of Robbie's room are lovely and make me want to come visit - we'd have such fun hearing where everything was from.

As for projects - yep there is a list somewhere....

You know, I purchased a bunch of the divided page protectors for just this purpose and have yet to use them! Sheesh, you really have inspired me! Looks awesome!

Great job Melissa. I like the idea of using those divided page protectors at the beginning of your album. You have a LOVELY home and Robbie's room is LOADED! You're going to have to build on! LOL

I love divided page protectors, and yours were put to great use with these two! I haven't decided quite what to do about our trip--a photo book or a scrapbook?
