Where can I find 12×12 sheet protectors?

July 28th, 2007

Question: I am looking for regular 12″x12″ sheet protectors that will fit in a 3 ring binder.  I can always find a box for 8 1/2 x 11  in the office supply stores but not 12×12?

 

Answer: All scrapbooking stores carry them.  We carry several types of 12×12 sheet protectors, including matte finish and glossy.  I use the ones from Memory Book and they work great in a 3-ring binder.

How do you attach transparency paper to your layout?

July 26th, 2007

Question: I am just starting to scrapbook and I have a question about transparency paper…  How do you use it?  Do I just glue the whole transparency to my my paper?  This might sound crazy but I just want to make sure I am doing it right..  I have the same question about vellum paper.  I am really confused with these..  Thanks a Bunch

Answer: Those are great questions!  Transparency paper can be adhered in lots of ways (I use all of these ways with transparency paper too).  I usually don’t use glue because it doesn’t stick very well and you can usually see it (I will sometimes use tape runners or double stick tape if there is something that will cover it up like an embellishment).  My favorite ways to adhere vellum or transparency are sewing, brads, or eyelets.  I will also use paperclips if it is a smaller piece of vellum or transparency. Another idea is to hide the edge with other paper that is glued over the transparency’s edge and onto the background paper.
For vellum the only difference is that you can use vellum glue and it holds well.

Do you sell angel & fountain garden themed papers suitable for a memorial album?

July 26th, 2007

Question: Hi Robin, I was just wondering if you ever get any garden themed papers of angels and fountains that would be suitable for putting together a memorial album?  Last year I lost two babies to miscarriage and I am trying to find a suitable album along with papers to put together this project.  I would appreciate any feedback from anyone who has either done one of these or who knows where to purchase these appropiate supplies.  Thanks,

Answer:  I have actually seen paper like that before, but I am unable to find any the is currently in stock.  We have several angel charms and embellishments .  I have found some ideas for layouts that might work for you:

Where can I buy a page planning set to help me plan my pages before I cut anything?

July 9th, 2007

Question: I am looking for a scrapbook product that I have seen somewhere in the last 3-4 months.  It is a page planning set that has pre-cut clear pieces that have dimensions on them so that you can pre plan your pages before you cut anything.  The pieces looked like they were transparency thickness.  Can you help me?  I have no idea what it is called or where I can get it.

 

Answer: Here are a few options that are similar to what you are talking about:

1. Plan a Page by EK Success

Where do I find chip board to make games?

July 9th, 2007

Question: Where do I find chip board to make games?
 

Answer:  We do carry a lot of plain chipboard that could be used for games here.  But if you are looking for a larger chipboard game board (larger than 12×12), I would suggest checking out some already made game boards from Barebooks or Board Game Design.
