I’m also having some issues with the pack of “Design J” Page Protectors that I recently purchased – they keep splitting at the top-side seam (the “folded” seam) & are not exactly 4″ x 4.” Which means I’m having to trim my photos (not really a big deal) and reinforce the edges (kind of a pain). To reinforce the side seam, I ended up stitching my photos in place – it works well for the quilting insert, but isn’t really something I should have to be doing… Hopefully I just got a bad batch. Anyone else expierencing problems with the Design J pages? I will say the ones I purchased & am having some difficulty with were in a pack by themselves – not a variety pack. The Design J pages I’ve used from a variety pack have all been perfect.
A few other highlights from the week:
- The garden is perking up after the soaker hose was added – but the bale plants are still lagging behind the in-ground plants
- I had some great raspberry lemonade, but the bar-code was probably my favorite (well done, Hubert’s Lemonade. Well done.)
- Our pool is more like a lake and less like a pool – and that has got to change soon or it will be too hot to swim

***I get a lot of questions about the mini photo collages I use in my spreads. To make them, I use the frametastic iPhone app set to the postcard size. I take & process 100% of my photos using just my phone; and most of the time, I print straight from my phone to Walgreens via the Printicular app.
