Album planning is easy when you place your photos into Pages in Progress notebooks in the order they will appear in your finished albums. Put one sheet of copy paper in every page protector as a divider to separate photos on the front and back of each page protector.
Add comments about page titles, jounaling, floorplans/sketches and embellishments on post-it-notes stuck to each page. Some flat embellishments will fit into the page protectors; bulky embellishments should be placed in your "materials" container.
There are customized Pages In Progress or Page Planner systems available for scrapbookers in the Scrapbook.com Superstore.
