I am with you on this one. I will only use CM albums. They back them 100%. I know from personal experience. I love that they have the new side loading sleeves as well to go with the new true 12x12 albums. My new fav!!! I have 8 years of albums, all CM.
i have one CM memories one that i have just started using. My faves are ones that i cant find anymore. I cant remember who makes them but i had bought them at Costco years ago. everytime i go there i look for more so i can stock up
I love CM albums for strap-hinge, though I have used D-ring in the past. I love the D-ring for heritage albums, becuase it's easier to add the information (in order by family tree) and it's 8 1/2 x 11, which is great when I don't have much other than a date and a picture to include!
i know a lot of people are happier with the D ring albums but personally i like the look of the post bound. i typically add in more page protectors before i start adding my layouts...i work chronologically so it usually isnt too big a deal for me. if you dont work that way then it is hard to have to go back and add layouts in between already existing pages. (hope that makes sense.)
i have several different brands but i like k&co the best. i always buy my albums either with a coupon or when they are on sale 40% off.
I just purchased a bunch of American Crafts post-bound albums. I love them, but I am looking to expand them and need post extenders. I can't find any made by American Crafts. Can any of you tell me if you have found a brand that works in the American Crafts post-bound albums?
