As I’ve mentioned before, I have a ton of scrapbooking supplies…. but this is not about all the paper and stickers.
Lately, one of my challenges is the 8.5×11 size scrapbook I’ve decided to use. Most supplies are for 12×12, so if you go the 12×12 route – you will have a million and a half choices.
I’ve been compiling a list of my favorite supplies. I started by just making a “wish list” on Amazon as reference, but I’m going to list all the products below. If you’re going with a normal 3-ring binder, here are the best options I’ve found (A Beautiful Mess also started selling 9×12 notebooks and filler pages on their site if you want to check it out).
If you have something that’s not listed, let me know! Always looking for more sheet protectors!
8.5×11 Albums and Photo Sheet Protectors
- We R Memory Keepers Classic Leather 3-Ring Album – 8.5 x 11 inch, Vanilla
This link also shows all the other color albums available in this size. As I showed in my last post, you can also just use a 3-ring binder from target 🙂
- 20-Pocket Pages, Pocket Size: 2″ x2″
These are great for Instagram photos! or tickets or anything… original use is coin collecting 🙂
- We R Memory Keepers 8.5X11-(4) 4X4 & (2) 4X3 Pockets
WeR is pretty much the only brand I’ve found with 8.5×11 layout pages, and they’re not usually sold in stores. I bought most of mine through Joann’s…
- We R Memory Keepers 8.5 by 11-Inch, (2) 4×3, (4) 2×2, (2) 6×4
- We R Memory Keepers 8.5 by 11-Inch, (2) 4×2, (2) 3×4, (2) 4×6
- 9 Pocket Page Protectors, (9) 3.5×2.5
These are usually for trading cards. I usually just buy them at Staples
- Becky Higgins 8.5 x 11 Envelope Pages
You can always use envelope pages…
- Treasures Metal Bookplates 2.125″X.875″
Because I bought 3-ring binders not meant for scrapbooking, I’m going to add the bookplates to the side for reference
All-Time Favorite Tools
Here are some of the other tools that I use ALL THE TIME. Couldn’t live without them.
I just noticed right now that they’re all Fiskars brand, but this is not sponsored by them.
- Fiskars Rotary Cutting Set
This is from my quilting supplies, but I use it constantly for trimming paper and photos
- Fiskars Designer Stick Rotary Cutter
My rotary cutter has zebra stripes….
- Fiskars 12 Inch Portable Rotary Paper Trimmer (199080)
You can use this instead of a rotary cutter and mat. It’s amazing. They also come in a lot of different colors.
- Fiskars Alpha Basic Clear Stamps (12-89188897J)
- Fiskars Stamp Block Set (01-000068)
