This is a great chipboard album for a small event scrapbook. I made three of them - as gifts for three of my aunts. They worked perfect! I would say they are most appropriate to cover with paper instead of painting. The surface of the board seemed a little to slick to take painting or stamping (but I did not try it). They were PERFECT for what I needed them for!
I used this album for a Christmas mini album and I was very pleased with the result.
These are my favorite chipboard albums! They are so sturdy and nice, and I love the shapes of this one!
