Hi ladies. I was reading some posts at Scrapbook-bytes.com and ran across an interesting idea.
She said she did it when she was in a bit of a slump and she wasn't motivated to scrap. So, she organized her kits:
"I've now got ALL of my kits printed out as contact sheets and catagorized by artist in 3 photo albums."
How do you organize your kits? Do you have small thumbnails of each paper and element on paper in a book or anything?
I know some of us have talked a touch on this subject before but it may help those that are new to digi to get some ideas for their own kit collections.

I just have kits in folders from where they are works for me
(example: SB-PAID KITS Little Dreamer Designs, SB-CREATIVE TEAM Amy Teets, SB-BLOG FREEBIES)
I only put like 1GB or less in each folder so I have lot of 1's, 2's 3's ect.
I know LOTS of ladies use ACDsee to organize their scrap stuff.. I don't know much about it but I know there are tutorials out there to help you..
I have one huge scrap folder (well, not so huge now that I've deleted all the freebies I never used -- it's down to 138gb now). Then I have more folders, either organized by store/designer/blog, etc. then each kit is in a folder within those folders.
no clue if that makes sense, but I've been doing it this way since the beginning and it works for me. there's no way I could change it now.
I also know people who swear by tagging -- like in acdsee or adobe bridge. it's not for me though -- too much work and I'm content with my current system.
I just have a folder labeled FREEBIES! and each kit has it's own folder there. If it's a collaboration kit from a blog, I make sure all those get into one folder together
It's nice when I open up my folder, I can search in there by a common name of whatever kit I want to use and it pulls up every item in the kit in a small thumbnail pic so that I can view it. I love that!
