I just noticed on the hobby lobby website that they are selling 12x12 strap hinge albums, pages and protectors. The albums are book cloth covered, like the old CM albums. Has anyone seen them in person? I'm hoping this will be the solution for me and the rest of the strap hinge scrappers!

They have sold them for as long as I have scrapbooked. Not as nice as CM, but ok.

I have several of the original 12x12 CM strap hinge albums -- I was going to put them on eBay, but I found I don't really like ebay. If you wish you may contact me at my name dot gmail dot com

Thank you for the offer of the CM albums -- I did stock up so I'm fine for a while.

As for the albums at HL -- I have never seen them in my store so I thought they were new -and maybe answering a need after CM.

I haven't been there recently, but I do know that they used to carry them back in the "early days" of scrapbooking before there were so many other options. So, I don't know if they stopped and brought them back (as you said, maybe to fill the void left by CM) or whether they've carried them continuously all along.

I also stocked up on CM albums and pages before they went under, but at some point I will need more refill pages. So, I hope they continue to carry strap hinge supplies.

Vicki, I can't get onto the Hobby Lobby website for some reason today. Was the strap hinge album at Hobby Lobby under the brand name Westrim?
