I have been using CM albums for quite a while. Typically I put 24 pages in my albums but you can push it to 36 I think.

I think my mother-IN-LAW has done 50. Do you want me to ask?

If you could check with her that would be great. On the cm site it said 50 pages but I'm wondering if the are counting a page as 2-front and back. I have about 24 pages and the album seems pretty full.

I would think it was how thick your pages are....I know my pages have lots and lots of bulk. I use wrmemory keep 3 rings and I can usually only get about 25 pages and then they don't close right.

I have only made it to 30 in the few that I have completed using Creative Memories.

My biggest CM album has 55 pages in it. It really is MAXED OUT! That means 55 actual pieces; I used front and back (110 layouts). I didn't overly embellish so not too thick. But the issue is, the Black spine paper to cover the binding doesn't stay in; it's not big enough. I shake my head about it. In my opinion, 40-45 pages really is the max.

ScrapChica, your room looks great! The CM album looks pretty good to have 55 pages. I just finished a K & Company album that's 45 pages, and the cover won't lay flat. I've got to get some extra posts and see how that works. The extra ones that came with the refill pages weren't enough.

Thanks Carol! I worked hard. Yes, I'm impressed that it lays flat too, I really should have put a ruler or something by it for better perspective, but hey, I ran up with my phone at like midnight when I saw the post LOL

My CM consultant told me that the entire album should measure no more than 3 inches wide. I just finished one that was 2.5' and I called it a day, lol.

That is interesting and makes sense as a way to judge it because each page has varying thicknesses, etc. Thanks for the input. I'll have to measure mine now!
