I've been purchasing Creative Memories albums for years and think they are great quality. Never had a problem with them falling apart, etc. When I first started scrapbooking, I had made the mistake of purchasing a cheaper scrapbook and it started falling apart in a year - and that was BEFORE kids!!

I just think the CM albums seem really expensive lately especially since the pages are no longer included. What do you ladies think? What albums do you get?

I'd really like to hear from people who have been scrapbooking for a long while because my main concern is how the albums hold up.

Sorry, I can't help. I buy CM albums too! They are my favorite, although, I haven't bought any since they changed over to the new sizes. I stocked up when they were on sale prior to that changeover.

I'm a CM girl, too. I just branched out and bought a Pioneer from Archivers because I loved the cover, but I haven't used it yet. I'm getting ready to order my first CM "new style" baby album for my dd. I have some CM albums that are 10 years old, and my friend has some that are 20 years old.

I do think the Martha Stewart ones are nice, but they're limited in colors and sizes.

Once again, Chesapeake me!

I've used CM mostly for 6 years & never had any issues. My cheaper albums from Michael's haven't held up so well So I'm sticking with CM.

I'm thinking this is what I'm going to do. Online to see what they've got!

I agree. I really like the quality of my CM album compared to the other cheaper one I got at Micheals. I was lucky enought to order right after CM switched to the true 12 x 12.
