What Are You Doing with Your Halloween Photos?

Each and every year, you take photos of your friends, family, and loved ones during Halloween. But chances are, if you’re like most people, those photos get pushed aside and stored in a shoebox or messy envelope until you find them years later when you’re cleaning out your photo collection. Don’t let those memories fade away! Instead, keep them fun and vibrant – just like this year’s Halloween costumes – by choosing to store your photos in one of the beautiful photo albums or scrapbooks from StorePhotos.com.

Made by Pioneer, one of the leading brands in photo storage, these photo albums and scrapbooks offer archival quality so you can ensure that your photos stay looking great for years to come. Plus, if you choose a scrapbook, you can feel free to create tons of great themed pages that can really make your photos pop.

This Halloween, don’t forget about your photos. Save them for years to come with a little help from StorePhotos.com.

Q&A with StorePhotos.com

Q – I recently bought a scrapbook to start scrapbooking, but I can not seem to get my embellishments to stick to my pages. Whenever I make a page and put it in my book, the embellishments always seem to be at the bottom of the page whenever I open it back up to show anyone. I am using regular white scrapbooking paper and a glue stick to stick my embellishments. Could this be the glue or paper causing the embellishments to fall off the page? – Sue, TX

A – Hi Sue, thanks for contacting StorePhotos.com. It does not sound like it is the paper causing your embellishments to come off. It actually may be the glue. Make sure you are using a higher bond glue. Regular glue sticks are fine for photos and light weight embellishments but if you are gluing heavier decorations on your pages, the glue stick may not hold the weight. StorePhotos.com carries an embellishment glue stick specifically for this problem. This glue stick can hold the weight of a penny. It is also meant for wood, fabric, felt, light metals and cardboard. This will definitely fix the problem you are having. Hope this helps!
