Am taking a break to organise my gigantic stash of digital kits. It is very important that I can see quickly what I have, so that I am able to maximise the use of all the papers, elements, alphas, etc on my layouts. You might have noticed that I mix stuff from all kits on my layouts depending on the color and look I have in mind. And I've a good old system of organising them: I print out all the previews and put them in a ring file! haha, sophiscated right? This is what it looks like:
I know there are programs to do this, but I guess I'm stuck in my old ways. It works for me! But it takes me a while to do all the previews, so I tend to let it run a few months, and then do them all at a go. And because I'm also a great freebie hunter, plus I do buy kits I really like (I think more than 80% of my layouts are from free stuff though) my ring file is now 1 inch thick!! It's my treasure trove :) !
How do you organise your digital kits ?
Last week I posted the wonderful poem by Mother Teresa, and Christie shared with me this lovely layout she made. I just love it! Thanks, Christie!
And here are some layouts by awesome ladies that I must share with you: These first two are by Sarah Belle of the moms of multiples club that she is in. Aren't they absolutely darlings? And Sarah makes awesome kits that she generously shares on her blog, check her blog out here
Here's an awesome layout by Livia who made this layout of her hometown Brazil - breathtaking, isn't it? And finally four layouts by the talented Melinda Staley, see the wonderful and rich details on all her gorgeous layouts!
Thanks ladies for allowing me to share your talents with us, and encouraging me. It really makes me very happy to see layouts made with my templates, you know :P
Anyways I was thinking to make you a quick template by tweaking one of the earlier ones, and then got carried away using it to make a layout for myself. (So far I've always made the layout then the template). It was fast! All done in an hour! So here is my latest layout and a 12 x 12 template for those of you who prefer them. Enjoy!
