cool tutorial on youtube

found this when I was watching another video tutorial by this lady. Pretty cool idea to add more pics and/or hidden journaling that you can look at without taking your page out or cutting holes in the page protectors

I don't know if I will have time to try it soon or not, but I definitely bookmarked it!

ok, so who on here sells Close to my Heart? That's so cool! I know I'd love giving that a try.

I was going to try it with 5.5x8.5" page protectors or 6x6 or 8x8, since I don't know where to buy the little fancy ones she showed at the beginning. At the end she shows how to do it with plain page protectors

Lauren, you don't even know how perfect that is! I have a LO I have wanted to do that on forever (it's part of DS's baby book), and I had that idea in my head but I could never quite figure out how to do it! Thank you so much!!!

Much easier than actually gluing the pictures onto the protectors like I've been doing. I wanna know where you can find those slick sleeves with adhesives now! I wonder if they also come in smaller sizes...

the small ones that she shows at the beginning are from Close to My Heart. Otherwise, you can just buy page protectors in smaller sizes and put adhesive on them to attach (As she shows towards the end)...but the things that are made specifically for this are made by Close to my heart. I don't know anyone who is a rep. for that company and sells this stuff though.

I have never heard of them either. I think it'd be really kewl to have ones that are like 2x3's as well to make lil pop up books for my younger kids to look through when they're a bit older that would work in say a 8x8 book. Guess one could use like baseball card protectors for a bit smaller size.
