When you create a beautiful page that you're proud of, what do you do with it? Do you put it straight into the album, or do you display it somewhere?

When we were in rented accommodation, I bought 3 white canvasses, attached a page protector (on its side) on the front with white brads, and hung them on the lounge wall with that removable 3M tape. I would slide my current favourite LOs, which were usually my latest ones, into the page protectors and change them out as I felt like it.

Now we have no spare wall space to do that. I have a little easel on my scrap desk that my pages go on until I put them in the albums. That way they have a bit of a display before they disappear into "storage".

What do you do?

Hey Rosie thats the canvas is a good idea 'Fraid mine do go straight into my album but the latest album is on the coffee table for anyone to look through xx

Since no one but me cares about the LO's I make (other than my 7yr old twins..) I put them on my scrap table in "the pile" until I finally get them in chronological order and into their respective books (Like I finally did last weekend).


I really love the idea of the canvases, I have the wall space in my scrap area, but worry about fading since its very bright in there....but its a great idea!

Mine typically go into the book that sits in my living room then when it gets full I start a new one.

I bought a LO holder at M's w/coupon for $10.
It holds about 20 LO's. I change it out when I have a fave, but I just keep it in my scraproom.

I put it in the album and leave it open on the coffee table, because my husband likes to look at them.

I bought this exact same one... has worked GREAT for me. We don't have a lot of wall space, or space in general, so this was the perfect solution to "display" my layouts.

I usually put them in albums unless it's just something I'm really proud of. Then I have a curtain rod hung with 2 page protectors hanging off of it & I'll put my best in there to display for a while.

I love the layout holder & the canvas idea is awesome!

Somewhere, I read where a lady put her layouts (she was talking mostly about bulky ones) in clear bags from Clearbags.com, and put them in a basket in her living room. That way people could flip through them when they visited or her family could. I really liked this idea, and I may end up doing that.

I have a couple of 12x12 frames hanging in the hallway with a double layout. Although, I admit, they are quite old, and need to be updated.
I also have a 12x12 frame in my scraproom with a favorite layout.

I also have an easel on my desk with a layout.

Like Teresa, my layouts go in a pile, then get placed in albums chronologically. But, they may stay in the pile a LONG time.

I'm neurotic about my LO's now, but I wasn't before.

As soon as I finish one, I scan it, upload it to SB.com and email the link to friends and family that may have an interest in that particular LO.

Then it goes on the mantle for one day so that the fam can admire. From there it goes into one of three shadow frame boxes in my office. The LO that's taken out of the frame to replace with a new one then goes immediately into the album in the year in which the event happened.

For a few years I let them lay around and they got so dusty, I went through a can of compressed air to blow the dust off them.

I put them in my scrapbook right away and the current scrapbook is always out and turned to the page with the most recent layouts.
