Not yet, but I want to. I noticed that Archiver's was offering an acrylic album class for $15... but ALL of the classes were filled by the time I had called!

The Acrylic Mini-Album workshop I went to used combo acrylic & chipboard pgs. The LSS owner who did WS said it doesn't make sense to cover acrylic pg up totally w/ paper/pics. I saw her point. Also, CB keeps costs down when use/cut your own. The acrylic pgs have mostly rub-ons, cute frames (that frame pic on next & before acrylic pg) & back to back (like buttons) or see from both sides type bellies.
I highly recommend doing one--THEY ARE SOOOOOO MUCH FUN TO DO!! If doing for a present, can make a CB pocket pg to hold CD of songs.

I just started working on mine officially yesterday. For one page I used some red KI Lace paper that I dry brushed with black which looks so cool. I did it on the back (which is white) and so it shows up on the opposite page and looks awesome. I also used some bubble wrap to stamp with gold paint on another page and I am loving how they're turning out! I can't wait to work on it some more!

Nah... THere is way to much going on in those books for my taste. It would bug the heck out of me to see through to other pages.

i have done quite a few mini books, some hanging decor, and incorporated acrylic pages within regular albums. the issue i have with acrylic is that it can get very heavy, and i don't particularly like handling them - something about the weight and plastic-ness just doesn't feel like a scrapbook. don't get me wrong, i think they look awesome, but just not all the time. i don't use acrylic for long term family albums or momentos.

Nope and I can't see doing it unless someone gave me an acrylic album as a gift and I just 'had' to try it out.
