I love the 3-ring albums for scrapbooking. So easy to load & unload pages especially when you scrap out of sequence and have to insert pages in the middle. Also, holds many more pages than the traditional album. Probably need 2-3 traditional albums to one 3-ring album. A little more bulky and not quite as attractive but sure works good. Maybe in a year or two when I am sure my book is complete I can transfer the pages into more attractive albums. Downside is they sell the exact same 3-ring binders for $19.99 at Michaels and when you have a 40 or 50% off coupon you can't beat it. Also, Michaels sells the pages 10 for $4.99. Again use a coupon and you save a lot. Sorry - will have to go to Michaels for these in the future.
