I love love love the three ring albums... I can work on a page from older pictures and can put it right in the album in order of that time. They are the only albums that I use. this way I don't have to keep pulling my pages from the page protectors and moving them about...

American Crafts brand are my favorite. They are D-Ring albums (3 rings) and the page protectors are true 12x12 as well.

I have about 17 of them filled now and love them!

I have just recently converted to the 3 rings, and I don't think I will ever go back! I bought the American Craft d-rings.

I got mine at Kohl's! The brand is Burnes of Boston and they come in 8 1/2 by 11 and 12x12! They're always on sale, and I love how they turn out! They have a window on the front, close into a box, and tie closed. I keep checking everytime I'm at Kohl's to see if they have any more!

I've always used just the regular 3 ring binders you can get at just about any store. GREAT for those that scrapbook in 8.5 x 11. However, I just might have to peek into our Kohl's for what you're describing!

Now, if only I could find a 3 ring album in 8x8...

I've been happy with the Pioneer brand, but based on your comments am going to check out the American Crafts as well.

Pioneer makes a 12x12 3-ring album??

I only use 3-ring albums, too for exactly the same reason! Plus life is too short for messing with post extenders. The Keeping Memories Alive albums are quite nice and reasonably priced (and so many pretty colors!), so that's what I've started using ever since M's quit carrying the Hiller albums.

I was so bummed when M's quit carrying the Hiller. I bought the last ones they had when they were discontinued. Unless I really get on a roll, I probably won't need more albums for a while.

Do you think these are comparable in quality to the Hiller?

So far they seem good, nice rounded corners with metal protectors, sturdy, and they have the little plastic pocket on the spine to slip a card with the album dates or title in. And so far I haven't had a problem with the rings "separating" like on some of my Hiller albums. That might just be a function of them being newer, but some of my Hiller albums developed that problem when they were relatively new, so maybe not. They're maybe a teeeeny bit shorter in height, but still plenty big enough to protect true 12 x 12 pages with room to spare. So far I'm very happy with them. (I like them a lot more than the Pioneer D-ring binder I bought once.)

How many pages will an album hold?




I am a chunky scrapper.. my pages are very thickly layered. I get about 30-35 page protectors in a d-ring album.

Chunky? That sounds so...not right. How about "fluffy"?
