Okay I'm tired of post albums. They're too much trouble to move pages around and add on to. I'm switching to 3 ring binders. Any advice on which brand to use? The ones I've seen look really bulky. Thanks! :o)

Love American Crafts D-Rings!

They have sizes of 6x6, 8x8, 8.5x11, and 12x12. Fits all of my scrapping needs and I can get them at Michael's with a coupon. Even better.

Ditto on the We are memory Keepers albums -- I love them. It would take a lot for me to go back to post albums. They make me crazy.

I like the American Crafts too but since I am fairly new to D rings I haven't tried them all. However I just got 2 Basic Grey D rings and they are beautiful!!!

I use the American Craft 3 D ring. I use alot of embellishments now so i need the extra space for the bulk. Easier to rearrange pages and add pages too.

I have both We R Memory Keepers and American Crafts. I like them both.

Below is my fav, which is Hiller (by We R Memory Keepers). It's sturdy and has a pocket inside to hold memorabilia that is not scrapped (brochures, maps, etc)

I got my first D-Ring album about a month ago. I will not go back to post albums. I'm slowly moving all my albums into D-Rings; they are so much better!

I love the We R Memory Keepers. I started with them and then moved into post bound only because Costco has some beautiful leather ones. I bought a ton and once they are gone I am going back to D Ring. They are easier. Not quite as pretty but so easy to work with.

I been using American Crafts i=since I switched over, about 5 years ago now, and they are holding up really well. I have like 4 or so We are Memory Keepers ones as well, but I have only had them about a year now, so I cannot attest to the long term use of them yet. Both are doing fine as of now.

I've used both American Crafts and We R Memory Keepers and I personally like the We R Memory Keepers better. In one of my American Crafts albums the metal ring base came off of the bottom where it's connected so I had to glue it back on. I haven't had any problems with We R Memory Keepers. =]

I have bought the Amrican Crafts and very much like them. I won't go back to post bound since it is so easy to move pages around in 3-ring and D-ring. Hobby has a different brand that I haven't tried.
