    Question New here

    I am new to this forum, the program and scrapbooking in general. I am wondering if there is a binder of some sort to place the pages I create. It's fun making the pages but I want an actual book.

    Dolly,
    I Buy my Books at Craft Stores or Walmart. My Pages just slide right in the pages sleeves.

    Are you using photo albums or scrapbooks? Andrea

    Default scrapbooks

    I have bought a few books as well, but have not printed any pages yet. I made a small one for my sister in law and just printing the 8x10's at Walmart cost me $20 for seven pages and then I had to trim the edges.
    Is there a cheaper way to print our pages? I believe my printer only prints out a max size paper of 8x10 but the scrap book pages are 12x12.
    Is it cheaper to print from home? I guess I'd have to buy a scrapbook printer? Hmmmm, questions questions... I can't wait to make a whole album.
    It's my mom's 60th birthday this year and also their 40th wedding anniversary - holy scrappin' opportunities!!

    What I do is Make My Pages 8 x 8, I print them with my AWESOME HP 3 in 1 (LOVE IT!!!) I can trim my pages with a Slide trimmer I got at Craft store to fit in a 8 x 8 book or Let my Pages Have the White frame and Put them in the regular 8 x 11.5 pages. I use cardstock 110lb paper, they Look Great!!!!

    (You can open your page, go to page settings, size and change a 12 x 12 to a 8 x8, I messed up a few weeks ago and had to do it to a 30 page scrapbook I had been working on for WEEKS!!!!!)

    LOL.....Kel you are Addicted!!! Looking a head for more things to scrap is a Sign!!!!!!

    Thanks for those tips! I don't seem to be getting clean crisp prints. I have 2 printers here and I'm getting good prints on either?????

    Is your Printer set up for Best Pictures? and What kind of Paper are you using?
    The first time I printed a LO I used picture paper and it look like the picture had a Rash!!!!
    I went in and looked and changed a few settings and used plain paper and it Looked Great, then I got my new printer and I started using card stock paper!!!!

    I tried using photo paper too. I found some 110lb card stock I had here and now the pages look great. My HP is a professional photograph printer so the settings are already for the best pictures but who knew the paper would make such a big difference. Thanks for all your help. Now I just need to find some nice albums.

    I just made a scrapbook for my daughter of her Greece trip...uploaded my pages to Costco photo had them printed out for 1.49 a page 8 x 8...I want her book to last a long time, home printers fade real fast...Costco did a fantastic job on the printing, bought an album at Michaels and 4 packs of extra pages, she ended up with 92 pages of her gorgeous trip.
    What a fun fun project that was and Scrapbook Max was with me every page of the way
