As far as family tree scrapbooking ranges go, Paper Loft’s “For the Record” range is seriously one of the best that I’ve seen … and easily the best that is currently available.

Each of the pages are double sided, and are sold as single sheets, and measuring 12″x12″ (30.5cmx30.5cm). All items are acid free and lignin free.
