    I have always used CM albums and protectors. I think I would rather just use a 3-ring album and sheet protectors, but I don't know where to find them. CM was easy for me because I live an hour from any HL, Michaels, etc., and there were local CM consultants. Any suggestions?

    I use WRMK (We R Memory Keepers) 3 -ring and protectors. I love them!! I switched all but completed albums to them. I buy them online. I just search for the sales but I have had reallyl good luck finding them online at JoAnns.

    I use post bound albums, mostly because I mostly do 2 page layouts, and treat those 2 pages as one large space. So I like to view the pages as close together as possible.

    I find a fair number of albums on ebay. It's not cheap to ship albums, but if you can find a motivated seller, the total price (including shipping) can still be good. I think a lot of people buy more supplies than they need and will occasionally clear things out at decent prices.

    Thank you! I used to do a lot of two-page spreads, and the CM albums were great for that, but anymore almost all are one page.

    I use postbound albums and just stock up whenever Michaels or any of the other local craft stores have a sale.

    I watch to find them on sale at Walmart or any hobby/craft store. Then I take them home and redo the covers and make them specific for the theme of that book. The 3 ring binders are great but I hardly ever find them and they are more bulky.
