Default What brand of scrap albums do you use?

Hi all,
I am just getting started on an album for my daughter. I tried a CM one, but don't care for the hinge style. I want a post-bound. What brand do you use/prefer? I don't really care for the selection SU has, but if they are much better than others I can settle for one.
Thanks,
Brenda

Hi there,
I've tried CM, Stampin Up, and some cheap ones from Joanns and Hobby Lobby and Stampin Up's are my absolute favorite and I'm not a demo so I have nothing to "gain" by investing in Stampin Up albums, kwim? The page protectors are SUPER quality, strong and roomy enough for embellished pages. The albums themselves are sturdy feeling even when they are packed full of pages. I see that you are a demo so I think you should for sure buy Stampin Ups! You won't regret it... and you can always embellish the front of the cover too to give it a little more "cuteness" or personalization. That's my 2 cents

Of course I'm partial to CTMH albums, they are really nice, post bound, and come in linen, faux leather, leather and in 3 sizes.
I also like Making Memories and K&Co albums alot too!
You really get what you pay for in an album, pay a little more for the nicer ones (no matter what brand) and you won't be sorry. I've seen lots of cheap albums fall apart and tear.
