I bought this album recently, and when I received it, I couldn't believe how beautiful it is! The fabric feels and looks like linen, and I really love that it has two buttons on the side for opening and closing.
The best part for me, is that I'm a "Bulky Scrapper", and this album has a 3-ring binder. It makes it so much easier to turn the pages, and not feel as though you're crushing the others.
On the down side is the price, but right now sb.c is offering a nice coupon. The only other negative thing I can think of is that Scrapworks puts different sized pockets inside, instead of providing the standard 12 x 12 to match the album. I bought refills in 12 x 12, which were reasonably priced.
Overall, I would highly recommend this product! I am very happy with it, and look forward to buying more of them in the future.
Hope this helps :D
