My DS just got married and it was a country type wedding, so was thinking of getting a tan, or beige WRMK faux leather album. Mike's has never carried that color, don't think Target has one either. Checked here on 2Peas, only see a linen one. Any ideas where I can get one? I see a color on the WRMK site called "greige" that looks about right but don't think you can order directly from them? Does anybody have a white, tan, or beige album and which color do you like? Thinking white might be too stark, tan would be more in style with their wedding (guys wore tan vests and pants). Does anybody else have trouble with the "search" option at HL?? For some reason, whatever I put in, it comes up with strange stuff!

Could you use a chocolate brown album? Those are easier to find. Greige would be more grey than tan and might not be what you picture.


I used a chocolate album for my wedding. The colors were eggplant and kraft and it was a rustic autumn wedding in the mountains. HTH!

How does the quality compare between WRMK, AC, and I think SN@P has faux leather ones now? I have 2 of the WRMK albums and think they are good, the BH albums from HSN are not so good with the laminated covers. Does BH have a faux leather album? The linen albums seem to get so dirty and dusty, want something to wipe off. Managed to find a "vanilla" colored album online at Wallyworld of all places! Don't know what color it really is from the picture, but free shipping to the store and can return it to the store so that is good.

I saw the "greige" album today and it was beautiful but definitely had a grey cast to it. You can order directly from WRMK - but the site has a different name I think. I would skip the Wallyworld album. I don't think I've seen anything of great quality there for albums. I've seen the new snap faux leather and they are really nice, but I think I prefer the WRMK. The Snap faux leather seems a little thicker and smoother to me (a little more shine to it than WRMK).

I looked up the "vanilla" WRMK album and it seems a little yellowish to me. They have a Cinnamon (beautiful!) and Dark Chocolate (with both no window and cover window styles) for browns.

I looked up some other albums and found a Keeping Memories Alive (KMA) album in Antique Ivory that sounds like the color you're looking for. American Crafts has a beautiful brown cloth album. This new woodgrain album might be nice too: AC Close Knit Album (there's also a darker version of this album with a window in the cover - just not available here). Or this one: Crate Paper Pier Album.

HTH.

I think hobby lobby has a burlap one

Stampin Up had both chocolate brown and tan linen albums that are great quality

Thanks for all the help! Thanks Michelle for your review of some of these. Glad you saw the "greige" one and if it looks gray wouldn't like it. Of course, didn't think about the name!.."gr-ay" + "beige" = "greige"!
BH has a mini ablum that is ivory, that looks like what I want but can't seem to find it in a 12 x 12 D-ring. Will check out some of the suggestions, thanks again!

I love the WRMK ivory (vanilla) albums and I am using them for my grand daughters LO's. IMO ,I don't think they have a yellow tinge to them. I love the color. They also make a brown one that I think is a really nice color. I am using that for one of my grand sons LO's. Good luck with finding just the right one for you!!!

Oh I'm so glad to hear you like the vanilla and it doesn't look too yellow! I did find the vanilla at wallyworld of all places, was surprised but they were just online, don't think they are in the stores. Will look forward to getting it. The bride did have beautiful colorful flowers, including bright yellow sunflowers so even if it did have a hint of yellow, think it would be ok. Thanks for posting!
