The only store in my area is a Michaels. I am in the midst of starting up on Project Life and I need an album. Are the Recollection binder sturdy? Not sure if anyone had used them before. They look alright but it's hard to tell when you can't open them up. (They have them wrapped up plastic. I was debating on getting an American Crafts binder but I really don't wanna order online and pay the shipping.
