About two years ago I made the switch to use D-Ring albums exclusively for my scrapbooks. D-Ring albums allow me to move and add pages with ease. While I am not a chronological scrapbooker (I don’t scrapbook my pictures in the order that they were taken), I do like to have my pages in somewhat chronological order.
My favorite albums have always been the American Crafts D-Ring albums.
However, I was recently introduced to the I Remember When/Xyron Everyday Stories albums and people, these are way nicer than the American Crafts albums. WAY nicer.
What I really like about them is that they are like a box, so your pages are really protected and they can’t shift like in other D-Ring albums. I also like the versatility of the pages that the album comes with (the pages can accommodate anything from 4×6 pictures to 12×12 layouts). You may remember me talking about these products in conjunction with a 365 project – which they would work GREAT for! I am using my first I Remember When album to scrapbook the heritage pictures I have of my family. What is nice is I can put layouts I have made as well as just pictures (when I don’t know any info, but want to still showcase the images) all in one album. Most scrapbooks would not allow you to do that. And the album is so beautiful that when I finish it, it will really be a treasure keepsake that will last for generations.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and Lucky Week, I Remember When has provided me with one green album to give away to a lucky reader- YAY! Simply, leave a comment and let me know what you would put in your I Remember When album.
