Clipart Organization

Hey yall! Happy Sunday!
 
Isn't it glorious that the Sunday night blues are a thing of the past?
Summer lovin' :)
 
Today I wanted to share how I organize all that adorable clipart that I've purchased over the years. If you're anything like me, the collection has gotten quite large...I know I'm not the only clipart addict out there!
 

So here is the very simple way I organize my clipart:
 
All of my clipart is in a folder titled Clipart and Borders. In that folder, I have separate folders for each of the clipart artists that I purchase from. These are just a few of the files!
 

In each separate folder, I have all the files of the different clipart I've purchased from that person. I also keep a copy of their terms of use in that folder as well. I usually change the name of the file to something that will help me remember what type of clipart it is.
 
These are some of the clipart files I've purchased from Scrappin Doodles.
 
 
I also have a separate folder that has all the credit buttons. It is highly important to give credit where it's due, so these come in handy when I'm making my credits page. Every artist has different TOU, but most of them require some kind of credit.
 
 
So that's it! Simple, yet effective.
How do you organize your clipart???

  3. Great idea! I haven't quite figured out how I want mine organized. It is frustrating trying to find just the right graphic when I have so many folders. lol

  6. I got so excited to read this post, and then loved it even more to know I do the exact same thing! I just think that now I want to clean up my folder titles a little bit more. I love having the folder for credits graphics/ license info. It is so handy!
