There are so many places on the web where you can find scrapbook page kits for sale.
Today I thought it might be useful to put together a list of the various scrapbooking sites where you can buy digital kits.

How I Organize My Scrapbook Page Kits
- Open Adobe Bridge
- Navigate to the folder containing the kit I want to add keywords to (this helps me to find elements and papers when I am ready to scrap.)
- Each kit will probably by split into folders for alphas, elements and papers (each designer does it slightly differently.)
- Start with the papers folder and click on the first paper then click edit and select all. This will select all the papers in your folder.
- Go to your keyword filter and click the + button to add a keyword “paper”. Put a tick in the paper (keyword) box and press enter (because all your papers are selected you will see a timer wheel at the bottom left of your screen, when it stops your keywords have been added.)
- Now next time you want to see all your papers, just do a search on that keyword (edit find then add the criteria you want e.g keyword, contains and type in the word you want to find,) you can add as many lines as you like depending on how much you want to narrow down your search e.g papers, striped etc.
- Rinse and repeat for your elements and alphas, setting up separate keywords for each.
- You can of course add as many keywords as you like for example under papers you could add other descriptive keywords like stripes, plain, patterns etc to further help with your search.
- Always try to do this with each new kit you download (as if you do it at the time of purchase, it’s not such a pain in the neck as trying to organize a whole bunch at once.)
- Create with what you purchase (no point in a stash if it’s never used) then either print, upload to twitter, facebook, flickr, or your blog the important thing is to share.
