Not All Scrap Books are created equal?!
Just back from a trip to lovely, sunny Florida, and several visits to Joanns! While I was there, I picked up a couple of packs of WeR Memory Keepers page protectors - the ones pre-segmented to do project life style pages - and a random postbound scrapbook that I liked. However, when I've got home, and gone to add these to the scrapbook, they don't fit! Both book and pages are punched at 3 holes, but the WRMK ones are just a little further apart than the album posts. Same with the Echo Park ones I already had at home, although they *do* match the WRMK ones! I always thought they would be a standard size, but apparently not? I can get another album over here, probably the matching WRMK branded one, I guess, but it's also leaving me second guessing if I can get further inserts for the book, or if that's just going to be the original size! It's also 3.30 am and I'm still awake thanks to lovely jet lag!

Re: Not All Scrap Books are created equal?!
Unfortunately, it's not just the holes, the WRMK page protectors themselves are slightly larger than the one in the book as well! Still, it's another excuse to shop! ;) As long as I know I'm not nuts and other people have found the same! Just makes me glad I didn't spring the $30 on the official Disney scrapbook. If it hadn't fitting there, I would have been peed off! And Christa, I had a fab, fab time, just what the doctor ordered!

Re: Not All Scrap Books are created equal?!
Glad you had a great time...I expected nothing less :lol: Of course if the page does not fit you could always go the whole hog and make your own album cover... It would be worth it to house those special memories in something so personal and totally made by you...
