Overall looks good, but should have looked closer before buying
on February 12, 2010
I was so excited about this way of scrapbooking, my friend sent me the link. It seemed to be perfect for me as I had already determined I was going to scrapbook this way, using the page protectors with slots.
It was a significant cash outlay, but after reading all the rave reviews I decided to go for it. I have a new baby and thought it would be so helpful to use this to document her first year.
Once I received it and looked more closely at the slots I was very dissapointed, all the picture slots are for horizontal photos. What am I supposed to do with all the vertical photos I have? With a baby there are a fair amount of pics that are vertical so you can get their whole body in the shot...mostly to show off the latest outfit somebody sent her.
Now I have to supplement this kit with other products to accomodate those photos and they don't have the right slots for the thousands of journaling cards they include in the kit, so I'll have to make my own. Back to the sitting and finding the right paper, matching colors, cutting out..etc...this is turning out to be another big task and I was so looking forward to being able to create something great with a minimal effort! So bummed and it was so expensive I could have done better buying things separately and putting it together.
Quality of product is good, one note is that they packaged the product really nicely, but bent the page protectors when they put them in the book and shrink wrapped them, so now they don't lay flat.
