I am planning to use the W R Memory keepers 3 ring album for my kid's school albums. I was planning to use the Real Red color. But then I saw the Wine color. Which one would you choose for a series of school albums? Thanks!

Personal preference only, but I would go with the wine. One because I like it better and secondly, it matches my kids school colours

This is so funny! I have two albums going for the high school where I teach. One is for a club, and the other is for school events. I have the wine and will get the red soon.

I like the red. It is more primary and makes me think of school more. That said, school colors, where you will display it, etc, may also be factors.

Thanks everyone. They are still in elementary, so no designated school colors. Their mascot is a Bronco named Blue Jeans, and they use a lot of western motifs like horseshoes, etc. Assuming we don't move before high school, their colors would be wine and white. I had not really thought about that until now.

I'd go with the wine, but I've never been a fan of primary colors so I tend to gravitate more toward muted color schemes anyway. Just my 2 cents...

Also, have you thought about asking your kids since the albums will be for them/of them? Maybe they have a preference and it might help you decide.

I had not thought of asking my kids. They would say pink (daughter) and orange (son).

Going for your child's favorite color is always a great idea...or the school colors.

Embellish the front of the album with Washi Tape for a rainbow or multi-pattern effect.

Love that idea jaxxan! But I am trying to avoid adding too much to my already out of control supplies. I love both colors, but finally decided to go with the Real Red.

Now to figure out what color of blue to use for a trip to Universal and Sea World. Why do I put SO much thought into these decisions????
