Is there a preferred brand? I'm thinking of starting a scrapbook and wanted to see if there is anything I should avoid in an album. My daughter and mother have Pioneer brand albums and that is what is widely available around here.
I really like the K&Co albums.
I just picked up some 8 1/2x 11 paper and clear plastic holders at Wal Mart in the craft section. They are designed to fit in a reg note book. That might be one way to start. craft catalgs also have a good selection
I've been scrapping for 12 years and I still think Creative Memories makes the best albums. Pages that lay flat and top loading page protectors are what I like the most. I've never had a book fall apart on me.
