Review: Doodlebug Storybook Albums (and video)

Here's some things I really love about these albums: 

  • 3-ring album - I don't scrapbook in order so post-bound albums are torture for me and I prefer to be able to move things around easily
  • Faux Leather inside & out - after having a kid drop a drink on previous cloth albums I know how important it is to be able to wipe down an album. Not all albums go to the expense and detail to add the same faux leather on the inside of the album...usually it's just paper.
  • D-ring album - these are non-slip interlocking rings so my pages to slip and fall out
  • Holds up to 150 (true) 12x12" pages or 900 photos (75 page protectors)
  • Colors - let's face it, who wouldn't want all these yummy colors on their book shelf
My first album...isn't it yummy!
Now my most recent scrapbooking has been using the 4x6 scrapbook method. I still like to scrapbook the typical 12x12 layout, but an entire theme in 12x12 format seems daunting at times. So I'm mixing it up a bit and I love it! Here's some of the page protectors Doodlebug is offering.....

If you really want to see the features of these beautiful Storybook Albums then watch this uStream feature of Cynthea, founder/owner of Doodlebug and my friends at Oh My Crafts. The attention to detail on the entire creation of these albums makes me want to own a whole room full. 

As for where to buy them...check your local scrapbook stores or many online retailers. I plan on buying mine from Oh My Crafts since they sell them for only $19.99/album. But you have to be fast, they sell out super quick!!

Hey Lori!! I recently decided to do what you are doing.. for the same reason. It is getting daunting and I am inundated with photos that if I don't change the way I scrap will never make it into a book. I have WRMK D-ring albums. I am not sure if Archiver's sells Doodlebug's albums. I will certainly check the next time I am there. :) Hope you are doing well! :)

Hi Lori! I loved your review on these and you know I'm going to pick one of these up! I love the idea of color coding my albums by event or person too.

I've not given the 4x6 method of scrapping a try, but I'm thinking of maybe doing that for a travel album. It looks like a low stress faster way to scrap.

Hope all is well!!!
