Thread: Organizing Tip

  1. Organizing Tip

    All of my folders are in sub folders. For example I have a folder called GDS and I keep all of my kits from there in it. So rather than open each folder and look at all the sub folders I created a folder called kits. Every time I get a new kit I place the preview page of the kit with the kits name, designer name and site name in it. This way when I want to start a project I just look in this one file which has a preview of all the kits I have and choose a few and then go and look at the actual kit. I've found that this saves me a lot of time.

    what a great tip! Someone I know also prints out a "contact page" of the previews so she can actually flip through the pages. I think it's great! but I'm too lazy to print.

    I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

    Thank you for the tip. I am finding that a major setback for me is organizing and remembering what I have and where it came from.

    I use Picasa to organize my kits. I wasn't sure that I would like it at first, but once you get through the initial organization, everything is a breeze! I have mine organized by papers, elements, alphas, QP's, etc. I just make a copy of the preview page with the designers name and save it with that group of papers, or group of elements. It has really worked well for me because I like to mix and match things sometimes. You can really organize your Picasa any way that is helpful for you. It has really been nice since I have been designing, because I can scroll through the items that I have made for a particular kit to get inspiration or see how things look together without having to open them in Photoshop.

    I'm just helpless.
    I have several organization programs, but use none of them.
    So when I go to find some items to scrap with, and run across something I so forgot I had, it's so exciting!
    "Wow! I didn't know I had this!" LOL!
