Hi. Welcome to the forums. One solution I have found useful in the past is to use tags. Tag all of your project notes as "archive" and make a saved search that looks for "-tag:archive". Put that saved search into your shortcuts (on the Mac) and all you have to do is click it to get rid of all those notes. The advanced searches + saved searches can be quite handy. http://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#/article/23245321 That's exactly what I do now, but it's definitely just a workaround. First of all, you have to set it up on every device separately, for those that support it. Also, unless you remember to enter the same search parameter every time, all searches of your notes will include the "archived" notes. A solution like the "deleted notes" analogy offered by Heathy65 is what we really need.
