I just made my first chipboard album with this LYB one. It is a great size...bigger than a lot out there which is great if your subject matter warrants more photos, journaling, etc. The mix of the acrylic and chipboard is nice. The white chipboard is a bit glossy. My favorite part is the LYB matching papers that are the exact same size as chipboard with holes already punched. It makes this project extra easy for a first timer like me...no tracing chipboard onto paper, cutting it, sanding it, etc. Super duper easy. I hope LYB comes out with some more paper that matches this album size. I would love to do another one!
