project life | last two weeks of may + digi how to | tracking supplies

I really like these two weeks' pages. Mostly because I had two quite good weeks. I had more moments of feeling good than what has been usual for me in the past year. I also like that I managed to get some really colourful photos. Thanking the weather for that, LOL!

I had a question on how I keep track of what supplies I use. I learned this trick early on in my scrapbooking, and have stuck to it. I know that there are actions and plug ins that can help do the work for you, but I haven't looked into it mostly because this works for me. I don't claim to have the best and most effective way of keeping track, but yes, it works well for me.

I don't use an organising tool; I just keep my supplies in a folder for each kit. When I use something from one kit I copy the name of the kit and paste it into the file of the page. This is how I do it.

1. In Explorer, right click on the kit folder. Choose Change Name. Copy the name (Ctrl+C).
2. Go to Photoshop where the page you are working on is open, choose File and File Info (Alt+Shift+Ctrl+I).
3. Paste the file name in the description area. Click OK.

Once the file has been saved, you can see what you  have written in the File Info by, in Explorer, right clicking on the file, choosing Properties, and then going to the third tab called Information. It is possible to click and copy the text so that you can paste it anywhere you want to.

So that's it. Pretty simple, isn't it?
