Pros: easy to add refills and great colors
Cons: can't think of any

I use these albums and I really love them. I love the simplicity of the covers and the colors they are available in. I have used all the sizes of the albums. I love the khaki and the red!

Pros: sturdy
Cons: -none

I love these albums. They are my favorite so far. They hold a ton of pages and come in a good variety of styles which I love. Very very nice

Pros: great colors, sturdy
Cons: can see the metal posts in spine

These have been my favorite albums. I love the three-post spine and the fabric covers. I've found them to be pretty sturdy and usually put up to 45 page protectors into each album (which is probably too much). I'm not thrilled about the way the spine looks on a shelf though...you can see the metal posts...

Pros: Sturdy
Cons: -none-

I have used a few different brands of albums. These have been by far the most sturdy and highest quality that I have found. I have found other album covers that I just had to have but took out the page protectors and replaced them with the Dalee refills.

Pros: Excellent quality; hold up well; elegant colors
Cons: Sell out quickly

One of my favorites. I use them when making gift albums as well as I am not worried they will fall apart.

I LOVE and I mean LOVE the Dalee Albums...Fantastic COLORS, including denim for all of those that claim there's not enough stuff for boys...I am too wishy washy to use CM. I started on them.. I have three...but I love being able to change the order of my pages without ripping things apart! Anyway, not only are the Dalee available in different sizes, but the spines are covered, the page protectors are heavier quality than anything I can find at craft stores and they are almost half the price!!! No more cutting pages down. They are also a true 12 X 12... LOVE them! Okay, about price.. I actually signed up to be an instructor with a company that sells them, so I get them cheaper!

I love the Dalee books, ive never had a problem with it

I have been using Dalee Scrapbook. for several years and LOVE them! I haven't had any problems at all. If you do a lot of 'bulky' layouts, I would definitely add more spacers and post extenders. I'm a bulky layout person, and I usually add a spacer about every 3 pages or so. I also add post extenders that are about 2" long (from the hardware section at Lowe's) when I have a really full album.

I've been using Dalee pretty much exclusively and have never had problems with the posts coming apart. Do you maybe need a post extender? Too many pages not enough post room so to speak? Also the spacers are very helpful too in helping to keep the bulk down.

I also started out in the CM albums, but have recently switched to the top loading Dalee albums. So far, I prefer the Dalee. One of the main reasons I prefer a top loading album is the fact that I don't have to scrap in order or plan ahead. Much easier on me

My CM albums look very nice, but I have had problems with the page protectors tearing easily. This may happen with the Dalee's also, I just haven't had that problem yet.

Giselleacttwo and Lmiracle have a good point about dust on top loading albums. But I have seen a couple of companies(Highsmith is one) that make album holders that would protect any album from dust. It's probably not a bad idea for any type of album.

As for the size of the album, that depends on your pics and how you work. I personally work best in 12x12.

i don't know anything about CM stuff...never been to a party...don't really know much about CTMH albums either although I've heard from very reliable sources that they are great...i don't like pioneer albums personally because the page protectors in mine seemed to tear easily, although I still have a couple of them that just aren't being used right now...i personally like the Dalee albums...the page protectors are very sturdy and are top-loading and the covers are beautiful...if you are just starting out, which ever size you choose, I think you should definately go with a top loading page protector which would eliminate CM automatically...page size is really up to you..i like 8x11 but alot of people like 12x12...can't help you with that one....

I love my Dalee travel album. My best friend got it for me at Christmas. I think their albums are beautiful and I really wanted to start using a top-loading album so I can scrap out of order.

A+ albums!

Dalee albums are my all-time favorite top loading albums. Beautiful and sturdy. I definitely believe you get a better made album when you pay a little more for it. There are three sizes available, and many colors and patterns to choose from. Refill pages are easy to find, and easy to add to your album.

Great Album

I love my Dalee album. It is one of the few post bound albums that I have seen that has the spacer in the page protector to let the pages lie flat. I love this feature. I have the plaid cloth version, and have been very pleased with it. My kids have gotton a few spots on the cover and I was able to get them out quite easily. My only complaint is that I have had a hard time finding refill pages for the album. I did finally find them but it took me a while. These albums are not carried by any of the stores in my area, so that didn't help. Other than the difficutly in locating them, I love it.

My favorite is Dalee. They are true 12x12. And the page protectors are a bit heavier than others.

I bought the pink one to start with and have since bought 2 other Dalee albums. I LOVE them. You can put up to 20+ pages in them depending on the thickness of your embellishments. The papers slid right into the protective covers, and the pages always lay flat once you have added the appropriate # of extenders. All of my albums contain my grand daughter and she loves looking at them. Buy the protective sleves for your album and it will always be protected. I recommend the Dalee albums to all.

"Perfect Scrapbook!!!"
This book is perfect for a scrapbook for baby. The 12x12 pages slide right in, no need for trimming. The book always closes flat no matter how bulky my page is! Thumbs up!

These albums are great! I made an applique and ironed it on with my daughters' names and a floral design- it's must more personal. I like the clear cover, too.

"Great Baby book!"
These albums make great baby books mostsly due to their color. Even green for if you aren't sure what you're having.

Okay, well, if I have to choose...Dalee, Pulp, Dalee, K&Co, Dalee, Sandylion, Dalee, Sew Be It. (Did I mention Dalee?) Even some Creative Memories for certain albums. Come to think of it, I don't think I've met an album I DON'T like! Except maybe for Pioneer but it has been YEARS since I used one of theirs so maybe they have changed.

I have a very full Dalee and a slightly less full K & Co which are both wonderful.

got to be Dalee...very hard wearing

Oh dear, it seems Pioner albums are not the favourite, and I just bought the 12x12 Pioner Rose Petal Album for my first album... hopefully it will be ok.

It seems the Dalee album is quite popular, I will have a look immediately!

From a seasoned scrapbooker's standpoint, however, I must add a drawback to these Pioneer books. The albums marked 12" x 12" do not have 12" x 12" pages. This means, if you're creating scrapbook pages using paper from a scrapbook or craft store, you will need to trim the sides and the tops of your pages in order to get them to fit in the album. If these were the only types of albums available, I'd say this is a small price to pay. However, with so many other manufacturers creating true 12" x 12", 8.5" x 11" and 5" x 7" pages, I'd be hard-pressed to recommend this line as your regular album source.

While this product line has great features, and I might even recommend the smaller 5" x 7" size for an occasional gift album, I wouldn't recommend this product for your family albums. Instead, I suggest you find a manufacturer with true-to-size pages, which will save you time and be much more convenient for your longer scrapbook projects. My top three favorites are Dalee Books, Memories, and Kolo albums.
