I store my photos in these albums chronologically until I have a chance to scrapbook them. This gives my family a chance to still enjoy looking at the photos even if it takes me a few years to get the scrapbook pages completed ;)
Reasons why I LOVE this product:
1. 3 ring binder allows me to re-arrange pages.
2. Sturdy pages let me put duplicates or near duplicates together in one photo pocket.
3. Pockets also allow for 5x7 enlargements.
4. Sturdy album holds up!
I don't understand why I have such a hard time finding this product. I can find the spiral bound Pioneer albums exactly like this but I HATE the spiral binding and prefer the 3 ring binder. I used to buy this from another online store that has recently discontinued it. I hope sb.com carries this product FOREVER!
Stacy Julian refered me to these albums in her Library of Memories Class on Big Picture Scrapbooking.com. They are great. The pages are durable and can withstand mutliple photos stuffed into one sleeve. The three ring binding makes it easy to add or take away pages or to re-arrange.
I would definately buy them again and again. I'm glad I took Stacy's advice.
The 3-up albums work just as Stacy Julian says in her book, Photo Freedom. They are re-arrangeable, you can add more pages to them, and they allow enough room for several photos in the same pocket. I found that I can fit 4 or 5 (it's a squeeze) in the same pocket. There is plenty of room to write a description next to the photograph as well.
