Hey there. I am considering using a Doodlebug album for Project Life 2013. Do any of you have these to compare against the WRMK leather 3-rings? Are they comparable in size? Will they look okay next to each other on the shelf? {I AM a bit OCD there.}

Overall opinion of the album? I am in love with that Bubble Blue.... And how do their page protectors hold up? Thick? Thin? Clear? Foggy? True to size? Snug? Give me the deets!

Thank you!!

I bought one because it was red and super cute. The page protectors do not hold up. After a very short time the holes in a few of them ripped. It also seems a little bigger than the WRMK.

I've heard they are too tall for an Expedit shelf...which was enough to make me drop them from consideration!

I love their colors, if the page protectors stink are other brands compatible? Good thread penny!

Hey there Penny! Nice to see you!

The Doodlebug albums are the same high quality as WRMK. They are approximately 1/4" taller than the WRMK albums and the same depth. The colours are sooo pretty. They have a window on the front and a bookplate on the spine.

All the leading brands of page protectors fit in the albums: WRMK, AC, Becky Higgins. I mix and match as I need to. The Doodlebug page protectors are thin, very similar to BH actually. They are flimsy. I prefer WRMK but will use one of the other brands mentioned if the layout isn't available in WRMK.

Hope that helps!

I have several of the Doodlebug albums, the colors are great! Also the quality is very good, the only issue I have had are with the pp that they came with when Doodlebug first started making these. I had alot of them rip at the hole for the ring, some were even ripped to begin with. I emailed Doodlebug and they replaced everyone of them. I have heard that they now have fixed the issue with pp.

HTH, Diane

Thanks everyone for the info. I do love that color, but if they are taller than WRMK I think that info is good to know and is sort of a deal breaker for me. *sigh*
