It's typically used as a wedding scrapbook I presume, but I selected it to display my travel photos because it was going on my living room coffee table and it matches perfectly with my semi-formal, off-white decor. A previous reviewer mentioned the cover on hers was "loose" but I didn't find that at all...it's absolutely beautiful.
the only complaint i have is that i thought it would be a little more white, it is actually a cream color but it's still perfect! i gave it to my new sister in law for her wedding present.
I ordered this album to use as my wedding album. The description says that it is ivory so i assumed it was ivory embroidery on an ivory background. I was wrong. The embroidery is a khaki or tan color. Also, the material is canvas and was loose. I thought it looked ugly and cheap. I have returned the album as I don't think I would even use it for something less important than my wedding album.
