The items that you are associating together should be visualized as interacting in some way. If you are trying to associate a stapler with a dog, it is not going to do you much good to picture a dog standing next to a stapler. A much better association would be to have the dog eating the stapler, or picture a dog with a stapler mouth. Not only does this interaction make the image more interesting, but by grouping both objects into one association, you are effectively chunking the material.
