Default Does anyone use Pinterest for Cataloging Kits?

Hello all!
I have been doing some research for cataloging kits and someone suggested posting the Kit Preview(s) to Pinterest and then using hashtags to organize. I just started playing around and was wondering if anyone else uses this method or something similar. Thanks in advance.

I'm on a Mac, so I tag all of my kits by designer, store and type/category directly within the file folder. I love it!

Thank you Sheri! I am working off an iPad and scrapping in Affinity. I only scrap with SSD- I love the designers and the community is always so helpful for a newbie! I tag the kit files with designer and theme but have recently found I only have a limited amount of tags to use which might not take me very far.

are you tagging/uploading kits that you already own?

I pin all of my kits & templates on pinterest so I know what I have. It's a nice way to see everything together. I've been doing this for years, and I'm not very good with the hashtag thing, but maybe I'll try that, too.

I have a board for the kits I have as well as one for my mile-long wish list!

What happens to those pins when designers change stores or retire?

Hmmmm...interesting. I never thought of doing that with Pinterest before.

The pins are still there...they just don't link to the store anymore. I actually have quite a few kits that are from retired designers that I still scrap with and post at other sites or just for my own enjoyment. It's more of a way for me to easily see what I have than anything else. I do occasionally make a note that they are retired.

Here's "my scrap stash" board if you want to take a look!

That's a really neat idea! I really like this concept!
I wish I had done this back in the day when Atomic Cupcake was a thing because I have all of these actions with NO previews and I have to install them to see what they do!
