American Crafts - Modern Album - Customizable 12x12 D-Ring - Green
While keeping my eye out for something green this past St. Patrick's Day, I happened upon this binder by American Crafts. First of all, I love anything made by American Crafts & secondly, I really love this binder!...The main reason that I seem to love it, is because of all the pages that it can hold!
At this time, I am using it to hold all of my 2008 Challenge LO's from sb.com in it. These binders are also availiable by American Crafts in various other colors, such as brown, red, blue, purple & pink!...Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend & lastly, if I had it my way, I'd probably own 1 in each in every color that is availiable! ;)
I love this book. I am new to scrapping, but I love this kind of book thus far.. The d-rings are so much easier to work with in my opinion. There is plenty of room, for me anyway, in these to add pages.. I love it.. Very sturdy too!
I have this binder in this color and a few other colors and love them! I love the large D rings and the pop of color on the end and I can decorate the front however i want! Love this!
I switched from strap-hinge to these D-ring binders. I thought I would hate the 'gap' between the pages on 2 page layouts. Not at all. These albums are sturdy, fun and allow me to not worry about not scrapping chronologically. Oh yeah-GREAT colors too!
The covers are rather flimsy chipboard, easily damaged. Thought it was a bargain, but you get what you pay for. My next ones will still be AC but a sturdier cover.
I have never been a big fan of the post bound albums, but the 3-ring albums disappeared long ago. Finally they are making a comeback! I'm slowly switching all my albums over to these, so I'll be back! Love that I can design the covers as I want to. Not sure about the canvas color strip. I may find a way to "seal" it so it doesn't get dirty from handling over time. Album seems sturdy & arrived in perfect condition. I've had no problems with any of your products! See you soon!
I LOVE THESE ALBUMS. I USE THEM TO HOLD MY SCRAPBOOK PAGE PROJECTS IN PROGRESS. I PUT TOGETHER LITTLE KITS SO THAT I CAN GRAB AN ALBUM WHEN I AM HEADING OFF TO A CROP. EVERYTHING IS ALL TOGETHER & READY FOR ME TO CROP.
The binder clip band detached at the bottom. The hardware didn't seem long enough to bend the metal end (similar to setting an eyelet) into the metal frame, and the hole was offset from the frame just enough to make putting the hardware back together difficult. I spent a lot of time trying to repair it and finally ended up gluing the hardware back and setting another eyelet on it as best I could. I'm afraid to fill it with real l/o, so I used pocket pages to sort and store my die cuts to keep it fairly light.
