I purchased a wrought iron tiered magazine rack to hold my newest album projects in progress. I use brown labeled envelopes to organize days of a trip or cities visited. I place all the memorabilia or memory joggers inside. Then I print all the photos I plan to use in the album and use Cropper Hopper photo envelopes to place and protect them for the project. I assemble any specially purchased paper, embellishments, stickers, rub-ons etc here. I also keep a Cropper Hopper Page Planner for scraps of paper for colors I am using on my layouts. I can place this right next to my work table so everything isn't on the desktop while I design pages. It helps me stay organized while I crop. Clean-up is easy with this method.
