I use the three ring binder albums and the album pages by we r memory keepers. Those albums are great!! Sometimes you can get them for 50% off at Joann.com or in the store.

There are so many good choices available besides the creative memories albums. However, if you like that concept then the paper studio brand by hobby lobby carries something similar.

Only use Creative Memories. They have many sales on albums and you can order online and have them shipped. In addition, join their Reward and you get money back to spend on another order!

But well worth the price. Every book I've bought over time has broken down,not my CM's, I bought 13 years ago. They look the same as they did the day I bought them. They do cost a lot but you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a rolling tote CM is the way to go too. I've been having mine for 10 years, it's has never lost it's shape or broke any wheels, like ours out there(I see people coming to crops with broken wheels all of the time). When I need another one CM here I come. Hope this helps.And no I don't sell CM.

I use a variety of albums. I have 3 ring binders, I have the cheaper ones that AC Moores sells (or use to sell-I haven't been in there in years) and they have held up really well. And I have some from when Top Line Creations was in business. Last time I counted I have 67 empty 12x12 sized albums waiting to be filled...LOL Hi I'm Joyce and I'm a hoarder Love

I have to admit that I LOL when I read your post!! My daughter is always asking me if I have seen the hoarders show on TV. You have more empty albums than I do and I have been a CM consultant for 14 years and I thought that I was bad.

But I have to agree with the others though that CM's albums are the best anywhere. I do offer a 15% discount and as Sandy said you can do the rewards program and get credit for your purchases as well.

Sometimes it really is true that you get what you pay for..... and CM is in my opinion the best. I have never had one fall apart on me even though I have had up to 45 pages in them and on top of that they lay flat which is always nice when you are looking through them.

Let me know if I can help you.

Have a great day!

I used to sell CM but I do not anymore. A scrapping buddy of mine accidentally left her non CM album out in the car on a very hot day and it ruined the album. CM albums are definitely worth the price if you want to have the albums stand the test of time!

I love CM albums and am so glad I bought a lot of pages and page protector before they went out of business. I just hope CM will decide to sell new ones when they launch a new line in November. Yes, they are expensive, but the cover is so nice. If it gets dirty, use damp cloth and wipe the dirt off. I made my dad an album many years ago and it is about to fall apart. I forgot the name of the company that starts with W or something. CM gets my vote!

So now that CM is out of business, what albums are comparable? I have some albums and pages from a consultant, but don't want to rely on that since they are out of business. Can anyone recommend some comparable albums?

The new company, Ahni & Zoe, sell the CM strap-hinge coversets. They have eight right now (I think), and all their inserts are pre-printed or multi-pocket plastic pages like, oh... whats'ernames..... Project Life. But they do sell 12x12 page protectors you can put pages built on 12x12 paper, or 12x12 digital prints you can do through digital or hybrid scrapbooking. If you want genuine CM albums, you may be able to get then on ebay from us hoarders who have finally realized that if we scrapped 24/7 for the rest of our lives, there would still be empty albums in our stash when we die..........
