Organizing The Bonus Materials?

4 posts in this topic

I'm just downloading the new SS club and I'm not sure about filing some of the items. Thought it best to see what others have thought. Specifically there is a nono-kit which isn't really a SS item? so it could get put away with the paper in the papers folder etc? and then this time there are the fabulous to have videos? need to make a video folder? OR put them away by month and then tag the whole colleciton with the month also?

 

The SS items I put into the folder for SS papers, SS embel, etc--just not sure about the wonderful new things! and finding them again when I need to...LOL

 

Thanks in advance,

Organizing supplies can be very individual. You should use whatever system what works best for you. I have a folder for collections because I keep them all together and that is where I put my nano kits. The videos go into a folder that I keep all of my e-books and videos in. It's kind of an instructional folder.

I agree that your organizational system has to work for you. When I organized originally, I had Windows XP and I didn't like the Elements organizer, so I created a Scrapping Supplies folder and had a folder with all of my unseparated collections in it because sometimes I just wanted to see them by name or by color. On an external hard drive, I also copied every paper and alpha and embellishment and separated them into categories using Ro's system with some tweaks of my own so I could just browse ribbons or frames or flowers.

 

Recently I got a new laptop that has Windows 7, and so I have stopped separating and sorting because the windows gallery allows me to search my folders by name, so I can search ribbons and it will search my Scrapping Supplies folder for all ribbons.

 

In my Scrapping Supplies folder, I have a folder for Tutorials that I keep all of the videos, ebooks, and newsletter tutorials in. One day I would like to sort it by topic, but for now, it's just one giant list. If I kept the videos with the collections they came with, I'd never be able to remember where they were.

 

Hope that helps.

For the Scrap Simple club, I break everything up into appropriate folders- paper temps into paper temp folder, Word art into word art folders. For the new tutorials I store them in a tutorial folder which includes everything that I have saved from newsletters, classes, etc. It's a simple system but it works for me.

 

When I get collections I keep them whole. I use Picasa to find what I need and it's fabulous. But that's a whole 'nother thread.
