It has always kind of bothered me that a lot of stamp albums make you collect souvenir sheets from stamp expos in the 30s and 40s as a whole sheet (rather than just the imperf), but for more modern souvenir sheets, they expect you to collect just the stamps.
Mystic’s page 779 has the stamps from the Pacific 97 Souvenir Sheet as individual stamps. I previously hacked the page to keep the two triangle stamps together as a se-tenant. But the more I thought about it, the more I wanted the whole sheet, with the selvage showing Pacific 97 and the date it was held.
So, I went a little nuts this afternoon. I made a page 779a and 780a, which had the whole Pacific 97 sheet. Page 779b and 780b contains the other 3 stamps that were page 779 originally.
Once I finished this, I realized I need to modify pages 777-778 so that the right description was facing 779. So this hack revisits the hack for pages 777 and 779, providing a total of 3 pages.
If you’re just going to keep the se-tenant pair of 3130-3131, then use my previous hacks for pages 777 and 779 to keep all se-tenants together.
If you agree with me and want the whole Pacific 97 sheet intact, then use this hack.
Right now, I only have a PDF, because the links to the stamp images are a mess. Soon as I get those cleaned up, I’ll post the Scribus files.
Here’s what I did to split page 779:
And here is the PDF with border. I’ll work on pages for Mystic paper and Scribus files over the next few days.
The colors of Ukraine are blue and yellow, as can be seen in their flag.
I’m a big fan of differentiating countries in binders based on color. My Ukrainian stamps are in yellow binders. Ireland is in green and The US is in blue.
I’m using the Staples Better Binder for my Ukraine collection, and I love the way you label the spine. Here’s what I did for Ukraine:
I like the way it looks. If anyone wants the Scribus and PDF file for the binder spine, let me know.

Had a lot of free time on my hands today and decided to marathon through and finish 2016. Here is a screen shot:

I’m putting them all in mounts and measuring them now. Stay tuned….
If you like the work I have been doing for the Mystic Heirloom Stamp Album, consider donating some Se-Tenants to help speed up the process of making new pages.
The following pages and stamps still need to get hacked. If you can spare connected se-tenants, please reply to this posting.
Here is what still needs to be done:

Grouping the Christmas self-adhesive imperfs together as a block of four was the mission here. I think I succeeded. It was a tight fit however. Here the result:

As requested, I have hacked page 475 of the Mystic Heirloom US Stamp Album in order to reconnect the 1892-1893 Se-Tenant.
This is a 2 page PDF. Page 1 is for your own page (print pages 1-2 double sided) and Page 2 is for Mystic blank pages (print pages 3-4 double sided).

Version 3 of the 2000 supplement is being re-released with MICHEL catalog numbers and dates of issue. I also rearranged the stamps to try and keep them, as best I could in date of issue order.
