    What do you do with chunky layouts?

      Sue, here's a trick that I leaed here some years ago (I don't remember who posted it, sorry).
      Before you start, cut about 1/8 off two sides of your bottom layer, making your page 11-7/8 square. If you know that you're going to be extra fat, shave off another 1/8, to get a 11-3/4 page.
      Just that small subtraction will allow your layout to fit in an album sleeve very easily.

      Any more than that, well, check the flyers from Michael's and Hobby Lobby, etc for bargains on canvases.

        I put mine in sleeves in an album. Even chunky ones fit. You can't put them back to back in a sleeve like I used to do with my flatter layouts. Peggy's tip sounds like a great idea too!

          I put mine in a sleeve and hang them on a 3 ring from hooks

            I am hopelessly behind in putting my pages in scrapbooks. I do use the D ring and Peggy's trick for the ones in binders. Sadly,75% are stored in the boxes that kits come in..boxes and boxes..I keep telling my self to take a Michaels coupon and buy one binder a week and get them done but it hasnt happened yet. maybe when i get a scraproom and can have them all on shelves it will inspire me 🙂

              Kathi, show her your Hall Tree with the hooks that you hang them on…It is soooo Cool…I am still looking for one every time I go in an antique shop

              I want to see the hall tree. That sounds really cool.

                          Very cool idea!!

                          But in refece to the original question I use D ring binders. I need to get more and should have asked for them for Christmas.

                          Love the hall tree. I have a tabletop display that holds my most recent ones and the older ones are in the plastic storage bins from michaels. I buy them on sale. I am thinking about putting together a photo album of my projects and having it printed out too, just so I have something smaller and easier for people to look through…
