    12x12 albums

    Morning! I am doing my yearly stock up on albums and page protectors and is it just me, or is it getting harder to find 12x12 albums? I really only do pocket scrapbooking and have only just found out that Becky Higgins physical product is no longer being made. Had I been a bit more on the ball I'd have stocked up last year, but I totally missed that announcement!! I've managed to get a load of boxes of the page protectors but am really struggling to find cloth albums. I have 7-8 years of albums, all cloth and I was hoping to eventually switch them all to the becky higgins ones as I liked the style and they had the metal corners on them which help stop them being bashed. But you cannot get them for love nor money. Second choice would have been American crafts cloth albums but they too are few and far between. The only choices in most shops (and the ranges are pretty small wherever I look) are the WRMK faux leather ones. These are OK, but way more expensive, or the American Crafts modern albums which have a cloth spine (great!) but then naked chipboard cover, which I am less keen on.

    Anyway...I guess my question after that waffle...is it just me? Am I missing something? Where is everyone else getting their albums from??

    I tend to buy 12 x 12 D rings albums these days and the only ones I can find seem to be Kaisercraft ones. The only problem is they don't seem to keep the same style for long so I have a variety of mismatched ones. They don't have corner protectors though. sometimes I can find a sponsor who has some in. Have you tried our lovely sponsors on here. It might be worth contacting them to see if they can get what you are looking for. In my experience they have their own wholesale suppliers who may be able to help even if they aren't on their own websites. The smaller independent companies try so much harder to get supplies for you. Give them a shout

    I've just seen this on the ATDML website

    "We are always looking for new ways to give our customers the goods they want, if we do not stock the product you are looking for please use the

    contact us section of the site to let us know. If it is by a manufacturer we currently stock it may be possible for us to order it in especially for you.

    Even if we cannot currently get it for you it is extremely useful to get feedback on what customers are looking for, this will help us

    to expand our stock to reflect what our customers want."

    Hi Elaine, thanks for that. I had checked the sponsors websites, but stupidly it had not occurred to me to simply email them and see if they could order some for me! Guess what I'll be doing next then! Great idea!

    Well, I am also a Becky Higgins fan, having come late to the 'pocket' style. I have just started mixing pages: 12x12 for some photos, and the rest in 6x4 pockets. I prefer D-rings now, but agree they are harder to get. Good suggestion, elaine, to contact a sponsor.

    I’m thinking about swapping and starting to get ring albums, they seem to hold so much more. Just slightly concerned if they break easily.
    Amazon and the range do lovely standard albums though
