There are so many great ideas that we find on the internet, in emails, posted on Facebook or pinned to Pinterest. Keeping track of all of them can be overwhelming to say the least.
Yesterday I hosted a “how to” webinar on getting all of these ideas organized into one easy to use digital notebook with Microsoft Office OneNote. If you have Microsoft Office on your computer there’s a good chance you have OneNote. There are a couple of other similar programs that you can use, Evernote is a free download. It doesn’t quite have the functionality of OneNote, but it will do a pretty good job for you.
If you’ve followed along with any of the Get Organized Challenge Series, the Digital Organization Class fits right into the mental system I teach in those classes. (You can view the video recordings of the most recent Summer Challenge by clicking here, or if you prefer to join us from the start with the Back To School, Back to Scrapping Fall Challenge – Click here for information and registration.)
Getting your Digital Ideas Organized is easy if you just think about them in a few major categories. If you’re already following the ScrapRack 4 Section System, those categories are the perfect way to set up your notebook.
1 – Alphabets
2 – Themes A-Z
Animals, Baby, Camping, Sports….
3 – The Calendar Year
Seasons and Holidays
4 – The Rainbow
Once you establish those basic sections in your OneNote Notebook, you can add other sections to keep track of things like; Stamps, Punches, Cricut Cartridges, New Product you want to try, a shopping list….etc.
You may want a section just for design notes, or for ideas from a individual designer you really like. Links to products, Youtube Videos, and other crafty things can easily be added.
If getting your Digital Ideas Organized is something that would help you in your crafty endeavors, I hope you’ll take some time to watch the recorded version of the webinar. Click Here to Watch Now.
