Hi Robin, I am wanting to create my own wedding album and need some help figuring out what kind of album and pages I should use. I already have all my prints they are 4 x6 and some 5 x7s. And I know I would like quite a few pages I was thinking around 40. If you have any advice on how the album should be bound or how I will attach the pictures to the pages I would appreciate it so much. Id like the pictures to be adhered to each page kinda of like the flushmounts. Thanks again Ashley Rodich

There are a lot of options out there for scrapbooks, so it really depends on the look you want and your personal preference. If this book is going to be handled often, it's a good idea to use pocket pages (clear, plastic sleeves) to keep your photos and layouts protected. To make it a bit easier on yourself, select patterned papers, cardstocks, and embellishments that match the color scheme or theme of your wedding. Keeping everything in the same color/pattern family will help keep your book cohesive.
For any scrapbook, you'll want to be sure to use photo-safe, acid-free adhesive and papers. We use tape runners to adhere photos to scrapbook layouts. They're very easy to use and really do the job.
Stop by your local Archiver's and they'll be more than happy to help you find the right album, adhesive, and scrapbooking products for your wedding album. Hope this helps!
