Another tip!

Are you one of those people who procrastinates? Don't feel bad, so am I! Today's tip is for those of us who missed out in the original size 12x12 pages/protectors, which Creative Memories stopped selling in September 1st. Did you recently find an old album in your closet you had forgotten about? You can use the True 12x12 pages in the old album, but the corners stick out just a little bit. If only there was a way to make them fit better!

Ah, there is! What you will need for this is a straight trimmer or rotary trimmer (I prefer the rotary myself), your pages and page protectors, photo tape, and a pencil. Start by measuring 1/4" from the outside jeeping on your page. Then, using your trimmer, cut off the jeeping at that point. Then, reattach the edge using the photo tape, bringing the page area so it is completely overlaping the 1/4" section. It should now be the same size as the old 12x12 pages. For the page protectors, just use the rotary trimmer to cutoff 1/4" of the page protector, on one of the open sides.

I hope this tip helps someone out there complete their albums!

Till next time,
