I think I found the best bargain of the year so far with this Cropper Hopper Keepsake 12 x 12 Clear Memorabilia Book for only $3.99 marked down from $19.99. When I first glanced at them I thought, gee I can use these for all my various scrapbooking storage needs and I could have a book for each seaon.
At first I purchased one and brought it home to check it out and when I saw how nice they were I went back and purchased the other 5 they had. I know a good bargain when I see one!!
This vinyl 12 x 12 book is perfect for storing all different sizes of memorabilia, different picture shapes and sizes and whatever else you have laying around! Inside the front cover you will find 3 different sized pockets for cards, pictures, ticket stubs from favorite places or concerts, anything that is small and you need a space for it.
The back cover I use for large items, scrapbooking paper, large pictures, school certicicates from my daughters, etc. There is also an area to store CD's if you belong to a scrapbooking club and they send you updates periodically.
The 3 ring binder also has 2 larger than normal envelope containers that can expand. I use this for all the brochures I pick up from Disney, Universal, the free maps of the parks and whatever else can fit in there.
I have my books divided into Christmas, Halloween & Thanksgiving, Vacation, Family Pictures from get togethers, My collectibles and then one for Shared Reviews with all my notes & ideas for new reviews, CD's of the pictures, my pesonal voting record, etc.
When I'm ready to work on a particualr project I just take out the book I need which are stored upright in a craft cublicle I purchased to store them all in.
The best part is that this entire keepsake book is archival safe and made of acid-free material so I never need to worry about what treasures I put in there. The entire book has an elastic strap that flips over a button on the front to keep it closed and nicely kept together.
If you have a Tuesday morning near you, check these out. You won't be disspointed and for $4.00 how can you go wrong!!
