I also added in a bit that I heard on the Paperclipping Digi Show, that scrapping can go faster if you have a "To Be Scrapped" file. So I took a twist on that and created collections in Lightroom with pictures, templates, papers and elements. Well, I haven't added all the papers, elements and templates yet, but I have pictures grouped into how I want to scrap them, so I can pick a bundle, look for a template, pick a kit and scrap!
Here is one of the first pages using my new system:
I used Echoes of Love:
not a traditional Christmas kit, the colors are beautiful for the pictures of Santa.
I have only imported 10 or so designers into my Lightroom catalog and I am now where near close to key-wording all of those. I do love that I can batch keyword items as I import them, so all my supplies are key-worded with the designer name and kit names. I am finding that it is easier to pick out what I want to scrap, and I am hoping to focus more on the stories that I want to get scrapped, while using the beautiful supplies that I have. How are your supplies organized? Do you have a system that works for you, or are you looking for a system?
