I am looking for a STURDY 12 x 12 scrapbook album.
I have 50 sheet protectors, and will need the spine to hold at least 2 inches worth of paper/sheet protectors. 2.5 inches would be better.
I prefer post-bound albums.
3 ring binders might work, but I like the post-bound look.
Should I just go with a 3 ring binder?
Do you use 3 ring binders or postbound? Why on each?
I got a 12 x 12 album from a store (Hobby Lobby), but the post-bound screws are extremely hard to open, and the book won't hold all my ages. I'm looking for a sturdier album.
Looking for $30 or under range.
I like stuff from K & Company and have found nice ones at Archiver's also.
I like the albums from Close to My Heart. They come with 1/2" post and are designed to hold up to 4".
The albums are extremely sturdy. The faux leather albums are only $24.95 retail. You can get them 1/2 price if you host a gathering of $250 in orders!
You will need to order the 1" extender posts. A package of 3 - 1" posts is only $2.50 or you can purchase a pack of 12 for $5.75 which will give you 4" (12 / 3 posts = 4").
There is also a hostess 1/2 priced collection that includes a scrapbook & 1/2 priced Studio-J digital layouts using web based (no additional cost for every little image you add on to your layouts) software. Your layouts ship FREE (up to 20 per month) and include FREE page protectors with every order. This is if you take digital pictures!
Hugs & smiles,
I am using more binders than post-bound albums for several reason. I have so many pics of my grandkids, and I can't seems to master the idea that you don't have to scrap them all. With the binder system, you can buy page protectors divided into 12 x 12, 8 x 10, 5 x 7, 4 x 6 and a combination of several sizes. So, for example, I had 50 or more pics of a princess tea party my 5-year-old granddaughter attended, each pic as cute as the next. I ended up scrapping four pages, then putting the rest in 4 x 6 and 5 x 7 sleeves with journaling cards in some of the pockets. I really liked the results. Also, I don't scrap in order, and the binder lets me move the pages easily. I'm currently working on an Autumn/Halloween album of all four grandchildren, and the binder has really helped keep the 6 years of photos organized. I find the binder sturdier than the post-bound that's has several extensions.This message has been edited. Last edited by: happytobe,
Or you can also apply carpentry skills for a super-binder (you can't buy one yet, so just build one). It would accommodate your multiple bounds of memories.
About those that may not be incorporated in a scrapbook immediately, let them be, just put some tiny sparks of scrapbook creativity--a one or two add-ons per picture will do.
