      how do you get everything in a book? Ever since I started using the flowers and stuff my pages are an inch thick. Any tips?

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

        D-Ring albums. Those are the only albums that work for me.

          This is a question that all of us ask at one time or another. I think that some smart Savage should invent a new album to fit our pages. I'm still not happy with any method yet. I think I'm liking a ribbon tied through the holes and just tied as well as anything to date. %-6

            Deb, I've adopted Lisa G's approach…mine are piled in a coer. I've been on this elusive search to find the perfect book to hold these pages, and it does not yet exist. My mom suggested using those D rings and tuing it into a coffee table book…left open like a book. I guess it's not a bad idea since most coffee table books are art books. It wouldn't work if you have kids. Like you, I'm looking for perfection but don't think we're going to find it. I like the 12 x 12 box idea one of our members had, I think it was Lisa N (not certain), but I will still have a storage problem with that. But, if I'm piling them in a coer those 12 x 12 boxes, just might work. LOL.

              Okay, I HAVE 3 D-ring AC albums. They are good. BUT, I don't use them. I stack mine in a cabinet, I plan on making a display.

                Ah, a display would be awesome. Some are just too pretty to put away and not be seen.

                    Since I scrap travel pics the D-rings don't work for me either . they are not large enough to hold an entire trip. I still use post bound albums and just buy extension post to make the album bigger.

                    My really thick ones are in frames and hung on my scraproom walls

                      yep, I frame the thick ones too. I probably have 12 hanging now and need to get more frames.

                            I use both d-rings and post type. I just don't back to back the layouts. Only use the front sides. Joualing goes on the backs.

                              Oh, and I leave the most recent creation out on display in a table top easel for a little while – until the next one is ready. Then it goes into the book and, yes, gets squished.

                                Personally I can't even fit mine in a 12X12 page protector but I wonder if that's because my flower was a little off the one side of my page. hmmm….I'm going to try with my cabaret page which is also pretty thick.

                                Also, if you store your pages flat they will eventually cause warping and indentations. I know this from experience. I have started standing my albums up against the wall in my living room.

                                  Adriana, try shaving about 1/8 off your paper on two sides (like an L so that your layout is actually 11-7/8 square) before starting. You won't believe the difference it makes.
