The albums are just beautiful! I love the stitching and the cover looks like it will hold up well. I like the metal corners and I know they will stay nice over time.
I love the variety of page protectors offered to go with the albums. I don't tend to scrapbook in a pocket page style but I decided to put together this quick page of the girl's first day of preschool using the Smarty Pants collection. I put this together in probably 15-20 minutes. The hardest part was editing and printing the photos. I love that the slots are all in the inner part of the page protector - nothing will fall out of the top! The page protectors are nice and thick as well - I don't think I will have to worry about them tearing or falling apart. The pockets are also true to size - there is not need to trim down 3x4 and 4x6 photos and cards - they will fit the first time!
If you are not a pocket page scrapbooker, Simple Stories also has 12x12 page protectors that go with the albums as well. As quickly as this page went together, I might be persuaded to include a few pocket pages here and there!
Now, here's the fun part! I get to give away one faux leather album of the winner's choice (either 12x12 or 6x8) and one package of page protectors.
Just leave a comment here on my blog and I will choose a random winner next Monday, November 4th! International comments are welcome!
