Organizing for Pocket Scrapping with Pam

Pam Talluto, one of the new creative team members, is an avid pocket scrapper. We all like to “peek” over the shoulder of our fellow scrappers to see if we can learn anything from their scrapbooking workflow. She shares her organization process with us here:

Organizing Folders for PL

Pam says: “I use Photoshop CS4 with Adobe Bridge CS4. This is a screen shot of my folders in Bridge. I keep my Project Life folder on my desktop so it’s easily accessible. Right now, there is also a Costco folder into which I put the large 12×18 prints to be developed on my next trip to Costco (I put four 6×8’s on a 12×18 to cut and use for the full page photos in my 6×8 album).

In the Project Life folder, the first sub-folder is called “Project Life 2016”. That is where I keep the 6×8 spreads that I have completed, in chronological order. Also are the double spreads, 12×8, which I post on social media.

The second sub-folder is called “Project Life Supplies”. Here I keep all of my digital Project Life supplies, in sub-categories so they are easy to find.

The third sub-folder is what really keeps me organized. It’s called “Stories to Tell”. Kept in chronological order with a short title, I add a folder each time I have an event that I want to scrapbook. Sometimes there are photos inside, sometimes just an empty folder to prompt me. Sometimes there are elements I don’t want to forget to use. If I have an idea for a layout that I want to remember, but no photos yet, I still make a folder beginning with xx__whatever the idea is. That way it goes to the bottom but is a prompt for me!

I’ve played around with my method for awhile now, and found that this is the one that really works for me!!”

Look for more “peeks” from the creative team soon!

Stacy is an accountant by day and spends time scrapping when she can. She describes herself as a storyteller at heart, who wants her children to understand and feel what she was thinking when she created her pages. Her scrapping goal for 2016 is to continue focusing on everyday moments and maybe to get a little more current on weekly scrapping 😉
