When you are finished with a scrapbook, what do you do with it? Do you you display it, put in a closet, on a shelf, or in a box? I know some of us might have a LOT of books! I was just wondering what every one did with theres. I am just getting back into it so I only had a couple done. I was just wonder what everyone did with theres.

Right now I have my 12X12 albums stored in a pantry cupboard I had made for my scrap room. Smaller ones are in a wooden crate and all my December Daily albums are in a metal container (long and narrow) and sit on the top of the cabinet.
I plan to have bookcases built later on so they can be stored in our family room.

plate stand I got them at hobby lobby.
You can also buy book stands....google for pics.
I have them on tables and bookshelves. I change them frequently and turn the pages so I can enjoy my books. Most of my scrapbooks are in bookcases, though. Pic in my gallery.

Mine are all standing upright on a bookcase. I like them that way, they are easy to pull out and flip through.
None of my current books are ones I really want "the public" to see, but I am making some mini albums I wouldn't mind being seen by anyone who is visiting. I'm thinking of getting a basket to put those in on the coffee table so guests can flip through them.

Mine are on bookshelves that we have scattered through out the house...some in the family room, some in our bedroom, in the office, in the hall. I used to have them all in my scrap room, but like spreading them out around the house more. They get looked at more that way.

I keep a basket of the mini albums in my living room.
In my family room I keep the latest album open on our pool table. Having it out and open encourages people to peek at it.
All the other albums are on the bookshelf in the family room with a sign next to them that says touch me!

Most recent or something I want to showcase (like a holiday album during the season) is on the coffee table so it gets looked at. Most finished albums (around 30) are in the custom bookcase my dad built me 12 years ago. But since the WRMK are too deep for the bookcase...I just brought home a 2x2 Expedit for my most recent books. By Christmas, I will have a dozen in that. Think I better put it in a different room cuz my family room could look overwhelmed by albums!
I need to stop scrapping or my children will hate me when they inherit them!
ETA: And there's usually a seasonal mini on a wrought-iron easel on my piano. The Bo Bunny chipboard minis work really well for this.
