I have only been scrappin for a few years and i hate having to take apart my book to add pages..so i'm thinking about going to a 3 ring binder. Is this a bad decision? What do you prefer and what brand? I don't want to buy garbage-or something i will end up throwing away..so what is something that you have and have absolutely loved...TIA!!!

I use American Crafts D-Ring albums, LOVE them! You can fit so many layouts in them, and they're so easy to use.

I gave up on post-bound a couple years ago, after nearly mutilating an album because the post was in crooked and I couldn't get it out. so now I have a 3-ring frmo we r memorykeepers, and I also have a couple albums from "scrap it simple" that use velcro and ties that I really like. they're both so much easier!

I'm thinking of switching to 3-ring also. I hate adding pages and post extenders! Plus, I scrap bulky so the pages never sit flat in a post-bound.

I switched over to the American Crafts D-ring albums, and I LOVE them! I don't plan on ever going back to post bound!

I have always used the post bounds, and when i went to check out the D-ring albums, it never shows what it looks like opened up...Any suggestions?

I love my 3 ringed albums from We Are Memory Keepers. I just love them because I can add pages, they hold tons, and they're such pretty colors. Another plus is that the covers could be wiped off (I think) as opposed to cloth covers. Just my opinion.

Has anyone had issues to the holes of the pages breaking in either of these albums? Didn't know how much stress the page protectors (the holes of them) could take. I like that post bound ones "hold on" to the edge of the page protector to help keep it stationary so the holes don't break.

FYI: By holes breaking, I kinda like what happens when the holes tear on filler paper in a binder...and you end up reinforcing every page with those tacky white circles.

Hope you gals KWIM.

I started using the American Crafts D-ring binders last month and I love them. I've left all the layouts I did before in the postbound albums and I think I'll still use post-bound for 2-page layouts because I don't care for the large space between the pages in the binders. But I LOVE the binders for single-page layouts- they are easy to add pages to and really accommodate thick pages. It doesn't look to me like the holes would rip very easily, but maybe someone who has used them longer could comment on that.
