Okay... I'll start with I love the 8x8 format... mostly because it means I can use my 12 x 12 paper and have scraps for coordinating embellishments, but also because it is small enough to be cute but large enough to be substantial. The chipboard sands easily and does not get splintery. The ring binding edge is a little awkward to work around but well worth the end result of a look that is finished. The interior paper is good quality as well. A bargain at the sale price and well worth its list price.
I am a big fan of these neat little albums. I got my first one as a Promo gift with an order. Since then I have decide to make an 8x8 album for our family events each year. I'm almost done with 2007 and eager to get started with 2008. These small albums will be easier to keep on a book shelf or on the coffee table for family to browse through. The album itself if very sturdy and very easy to work with. I just order the Cosmo Cricket 8x8 paper pads to use with these albums.
I love to have these albums on hand for special projects! They are so versitile! Our entire family goes to Lake Arrowhead each winter for a few days and I love to used these albums for my Arrowhead trips!
