  1. Very nicely done Tok.
    I bought a post bound album with 10 pages and a whole pack of plastic sleeves, thinking I could expand it; but I can’t figure out how to loosen the posts.


    • Thank you Cindy.

      Until now I have kept them in the ring binder type as they are easier to rearrange, but the sleeves damage when it’s in the shelf. The post bound albums displays better as the two facing pages are next to each other.

      It wasn’t easy, I even added an extender and a few more pages. I think it helps if you are two people and one has a screw driver.
      Have a look at

      The one link was in my post, I’ll add the other.

      Good luck.


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
