"Scrapbooking is cheaper than a therapist".
If you are like me, once I have made a lovely new scrapbook, I want to show it off, and it helps my peace of mind tremendously to have sheet protectors in place. They can keep fingerprints and smudges off your photos and stop delicate embellishments from being rearranged or damaged. Memorabilia is more secure behind them as well.
These days papge protectors come in many sizes, from the 12" x 12" page protector down to 6"x 6" ones, plus the Project Life pocket pages are also very effective. You can even purchase a fuse too to make your own sized pockets fro special items you want to scrap.

There is a tendency for it's edge to catch on your photos and embellishments, especially when you have decorated both sides of the page. This can undo some of your good work and be very frustrating.
