Another vote for American Crafts D-Ring Albums here! I LOVE them. Since I switched from post-bound to D-Ring, I haven't looked back! I highly recommend them!

I use Pioneer albums. They are fairly inexpensive plus AC Moore carries them so I can use Coupons . I have to buy lots of scrapbooks when scrapping 7 albums at one time. The Pioneer albums are good quality, too.

I actually don't know which kind I like best. Is there a difference?

I just wanted to see what were some top faves since I'm still gathering supplies and I'm low on funds right now so I wanted to make a wise selection. I think I really like the American Crafts D ring binder for my puppies album and K and Company 's for my wedding album.

what is the difference between the Colorblok, American Crafts and creative memories. I am looking for an album where I can take the pages out in case of mess up when I am trying to put things in order. This is what I do not like about creative memories is that it takes forever to take it apart and then I can not figure out how to put the back together again.

I don't know about American Crafts (having never tried them) but Colorbok is a post bound album (at least the one I used) and CM is strap hinge. If you really want ease in movement of pages as a top priority, D-ring is probably easier than either of those. (I have tried all three types for my albums... and even some spiral bound for that matter.)

That having been said, my favorites albums are ironically the Colorbok (true 12 x 12) and the CM's (which I understand is going to 12 x 12). But like I've said, I've never tried American Crafts .

can I had a 8x8 postbound that I had started with for this album I just finished. I hated how the spin looked with the extenders in it. Without the extenders thou there isn't alot of room in the album. I ordered a 8x8 American Crafts cordury d ring and I love it! I don't care that the pages don't lay right next to each other, I like that the album lays flat and it's easy to move the pages around.

The American Crafts albums are super easy. The page protectors have the holes in them and so you can move them wherever you want. You don't adhere your LOs to any pages, you can just slip them in the protector and slip them back out.

Don't really have a favorite - I have a lot of different brands - I do like 3 ring binders - it makes it easier for adding and moving pages.

I buy the Pioneer ones that are sold at ArchivalUSA. They are great, D-ring with a padded cover. And they only cost around $14. I only use 3-ring binders because I don't scrap in chronological order and I need to be able to move things around. By the way American Craft sells the BEST page protectors - they're way big and you can put LO's with tons of embellishments in them with no effort at all.

Another vote for American Crafts 3 ring binders. I like them because I can mix all different sizes of pages in the same album.

My favorite has to be the Creative Memories. That's what I started using in the very beginning and I've found no reason to switch to another brand. The strap-hinge-thingy is a little bit of a pain sometimes, and I usually have to have my DH tighten the straps for me, but at least it makes him feel helpful. lol. I don't have a regular supplier at the time since my "hook-up" moved away, so when the time comes when I need to purchase more books I may have to try some other brands. Just remember you get what you pay for. You don't want to buy something cheap just to have it fall apart on you later.....

I use the Making Memories ones. You cant move the pages around like with the American Crafts albums, but they're still just as easy to use.
