But because of the amount of time it would take me to get caught up on this, and amount of space on my computer I have never sat down and got this organized (but I wish I had) I keep all my kits together in a folder labeld with designer and item. As soon as I download it I will burn it to a cd and add a preview to a folder I keep (I also write down the cd number on the corner of the preview so it's easier to find) The only kits I keep on my computer are ones I haven't worked with or want to work with again. But if an element, paper, overlay catches my eye and I know I can use it again I will then put it in a folder, which I find myself opening that folder alot looking for that special something to use.
What it comes down to is finding a system that works best for you..and will still be useful to you down the line.

I hope you enjoy the January club!
Great idea to burn a CD also.
Yes, unzip the files first. The good news is... The zipped files are set up by the categories Ro described. So you can unzip one, move it into the correct folder and move on.
Each zip file is also named to help you with this, i.e. "DMI_Icy_Embel_Mini_1.zip &
DMI_Icy_Embel_Mini_2.zip" both contain different embellishment files, so move them to the Embellishments folder. They are numbered with 1 & 2 because there were just too many to put into one zip file.
Hope this helps, so you can go and enjoy using the collection.
And don't forget to post what you create in the gallery!!! We LOVE to see layouts!
