Close To My Heart just announced two different side-loading Memory Protectors® products for 12" x 12" scrapbook pages are being developed. These products will be formulated with our same quality PVC-free materials and are anticipated to be available with the release of the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book (available for purchase on February 1, 2014).
The first product is intended to be compatible with Creative Memories-style strap albums without requiring modification to the album or protector. The protectors have seams on the top, bottom, and exterior side, with an open side for sliding in pages near the gutter seam. “Refill pages” are not required to use this product.
The second product is intended for use in post-bound or three-ring albums. Protectors are very similar to Close To My Heart’s existing Memory Protectors style, but instead of having an opening at the top for top loading, these will have the opening at the interior side near the gutter.
These two additional formats of Memory Protectors will give you additional options in organizing your pages in albums. These protectors are not intended to replace our current style of Memory Protectors, but rather to offer more options and diversity in our top quality Memory Protectors.
If you have Creative Memory style albums and are having difficulty finding page protectors to complete them, please let me know. I will put you on my list of people to keep informed as more information about these pages becomes available.
