I have been doing so much scrapping in the last few months, that i am rapidly filling up my American Crafts 12x12 albums. I thought that if i tried my hand at scrapping in A4 it would mean i could use standard page protectors (i got mine from WHSmiths as they are acid free) and any cheap ring binder. I think it will work well for 1 photo pages, or pages with smaller photos too. I was a bit unsure how it would turn out. I made sure to use some of my favourite papers (even though they are scraps) to give myself the best chance of liking this format.....and i do! Whilst making the layout i didnt give much thought to the fact it was A4, and i think the smaller size fits the one photo better. So i will be scrapping in this size again very soon.....but i couldnt ever stop scrapping in 12x12!
