For our guestbook, I want to mount photos of us and keepsakes I’ve saved over the years as well as digital photos of our guests. I want an album that has just blank scrapbook pages without those plastic page protectors. Who knew that would be so hard to find!
I have found only 3 that are not ridiculously expensive. Which do you prefer?
First up is this Gallery Leather Album for $34. It’s nice and available in different colors and I can buy ivory scrapbook paper refills to swap out the photo pages. The only thing is that it’s ringbound and I’m not sure I really like that…

Next is this Big Ideas Leather Album/Sketckbook priced at $80. It would fit our rustic theme well. Only downside is it’s not refillable but it has 80 2-sided pages so I probably don’t need more.

And last is the Kolo Newport Black Bonded Leather Album for $59.98. I like the simple clean look of it and I cna buy ivory scrapbook page refills for it. I also like that it has post-style binding.

msmonicka- I like it also. 🙂 And I meant to tell you the other day that I love your engagement pic!
krissybee- I think it would fit our theme really well also. I was just a little worried about it being floppy?

Have you checked out Michaels? They have a ton of nice scrapbook albums!

I think you should invest the money into it, my parents wedding album was falling apart so I ordered one to replace it from http://powellleather.com/ … fairly pricey, but it will still be here when MY great-grandkids are looking at it. The guy that owns the company is really nice, and really easy to work with, and everything is custom.

I think the 3rd one is great! And you can add one of your engagement photos into the front. Very nice!

Future Mrs. Martin- I did, but my Michael’s only had bookcloth ones and I was looking for a leather one.
what2bee- OMG, I am in love. Now I can’t even look at my original three picks! I can see this baby sitting on the coffee table of the ranch we hope to own one day.
Now I just have to convince Mr. Promise….
