Ok, to go completely low-tech: Find a paper/card stock that suits you, a mechanical pencil (.05), Pentel retractable eraser, an eraser shield, a good straight edge and ruler to make the layouts... Then go over it with a good fine point ink pen that doesn't clump (fine tip uniball?). That is about as simple and low tech as you can get. If you're lettering isn't up to snuff, type, print and cut out the title and descriptions blocks to paste on the pages. Since your dealing with US Commemorative stamps, as I said before you'll find that 90% are the same 5-6 sizes so, you could cut out templates from styrene sheets (see modeling supplies at your local Hobby Lobby) for the frames.
Note added: Make sure you wipe the edge of the straight edge and polystyrene template frequently or stray ink/pencil lead will build up and mess up the page.
