one day a week, i sit down and put together 3-6 "kits" for the rest of the week. i put all the elements in-photos already cropped and mats made if i want them, embellishments, borders, paper and either hand written or typed journaling. when im done, i put them in ziploc bags and use a 5x7" accordion storage folder to store them. the folder is tacked on my corkboard to remind me there are pages to be made and its out of reach from little hands! then when im ready to put the page together all i have to do is put it together! saves TONS of time and in some cases money!
