Default Storing 3D Scrapbook Pages

My early pages were pretty much flat type pages. Nice but no depth. I will be getting back into it this fall and winter. Thinking about that, I have been perusing lots of sites and blogs full of goreous 3D layouts. Not sure how "deep" I will get into all the embellishments but was wondering.........How in the world do you store pages like this? I see all these wonderful ideas, with layers upon layers and can only imagine what storing in an album does. Are these extravagant pages meant for an album or made just for single display?

thanks a bunch!
It is much easier to receive forgiveness than to obtain permission...................

Most of my pages are "fat" and I just put them in albums like flatter pages. Three ring albums work better than post bound, I feel. If you use post bound, you need spacers between every second page or so and you will need to expand the spine covering as wide as it goes or remove it entirely. If a page feels like a tight fit into the page protector, you may need to trim a sliver off one side. To be safe, I have developed the habit of trimming 1/4" off one side before I add any layers or photos.

I think a lot of people do the larger (fatter) embellishments to display in a frame or tabletop easel, but eventually they have to go into an album for long term storage. Wouldn't an expandable page protector work for this (I've never seen one, so I am guessing they don't exist)? I like Lutheran's idea of trimming the edge a bit so there is some more "wiggle" room inside the page protector. That's a great solution.
