I've been working like a mad woman on my wedding album and I'm about 21 pages in and haven't even started my ceremony yet. Whew. Anywho, I've been storing said finished pages in some plastic protectors but some of my 3D embelishments are getting smooshed. Anyone have any tips on how to better store my pages?

I use 3 rings albums, they are much better for those "bulky" pages.

I was given this advice from the local scrapbook store owner: It's a bit hard to explain...but I'll try.
Look for albums that take refill pages that are well spaced from the holes to the seam. In other words,the closer the insert part of the page protector starts to the posts or rings, the less bulk you can have on your page, if you want it to sit flat.
Hope that makes sense.

Also, make sure you store your albums upright, not laying flat as the pressure from other pages can flatten your embellies. HTH

Also, try not to have 3D embellishment opposite each other on facing pages.

IzzyB you are so smart! I never thought about that but you're right, they'd crush each other! Thanks!

After my albums are finished I put them on a bookshelf so people can look at them. Definitely make sure they are up right!
