I followed the advice on the website www.organizedscrapbooks.com website. I organized my “scrapbook pages in progress” pile. I had all the photos and scraps just thrown into a plastic box, but I decided to try out the method they described on the website. What I did was put the photos into a 12X12inch page protector, along with written out layout ideas and dates and journaling. Then I picked out paper patterns to use with each layout and I picked out eyelets if I already had an idea about them. I plan on getting through all of these this summer while I have the extra time.
