I am new to scrapbooking and have some questions. Do I have to use page protectors or can I not use them and have hinged archival pages with photos touching each other? This is what a friend told me to do (no page protectors).
I would like to start scrapbooking and have lots of ideas but I have some basic questions that none of the books or websites that I’ve consulted have answered. Most of the albums I’ve seen look very similar to photo albums. Does each page of the scrapbook go under a regular photo album type clear
I just finished my very first scrapbook and probably the most precious of all is my wedding album. I bought all the acid-free, lignin-free stickers, backgrounds, sleeves etc. I also printed numerous notes on regular and colored paper (office quality not scrapbook) from a regular printer with regul
