Tip: how to store your collage elements

Over the years I have tried to store my collage elements in many ways and no one was good for me. I had always a lot of scraps and photos around me and never could find this one I was looking for.

Now, I hope I have found a very good way to store all my little papers. Simple photo albums, of this kind that have a sticky background and a plastic sheet over it.

I just thought I'd warn you about those types of albums. They are not good for long term storage - eventually your items will become stuck down more than you intended & something (I don't know if it's the sticky stuff or the plastic) can damage your items (fading, becoming brittle, etc.) I found this out too late and didn't want you or your readers to have to find out the hard way like I did. Best wishes to all.
P.S. I LOVE your blog, your artwork is so inspiring. and a big thank you for sharing your freebies with us!

These types of albums are NOT acid free and will damage your ephemera. They are convenient for short term storage, though.

Lovely site - you are very generous!
