    It's a script that tracks the items that you put on your layout, so when you run the script it will list out the name of the element or paper shown in the layers panel. It will look something like this:

    gmiller-oyl-heart2
    gmiller-oyl-mask
    gmiller-oyl-masktrim
    gmiller-oyl-paper4
    gmiller-oyl-ribbon3
    gmiller-oyl-scallops
    gmiller-oyl-wipes
    gmiller-oyl-wordart2

    It makes checking hundreds of layouts much easier when the kit name and designer are listed and linked. So you can use a credit tracker, but you have to revise the credits so that the kit name and designer are listed, preferably linked to the store. So then the above list becomes this instead:

    Thank you , I have seen that in the gallery for some layouts and had no idea how it was done. I just type the name and paste the link.

    I use the "sticky notes" app thats built into Windows 10 to start with but then use @gonewiththewind's method of file info after that. While I'm scrapping I use the sticky notes to jot down any credits, put links on etc then I copy and paste it all into file info within my psd file like Cheryl does.

    Ohhh, I didn’t know about the abbreviations. I constantly use LBW for Little Butterfly wings.

    what about Mixed Media Monthly? I normally write it like this: M3 Apr 21 Main Kit, or Little Butterfly Wings M3 Apr 21 add ons. Is that ok?

    Are templates that are no longer in the store count for 15% non current for MOC as well or does that change for this event?

    M3 is interchangeable with Mixed Media Monthly in naming in the store, especially by Littler Butterfly Wings, so I believe you should be able to use it in credits, especially if you are providing a link to the product in the store @mrs2a50 Do you concur?

    Templates count for 15% of your layout even during Month of Challenges. You have to use 75% current product during MOC, so using a template no longer in the store would give you plenty of wiggle room in the 25% non-current product range.

    Last year someone told me of a way to not see all the layout posts when I come to forum and click on "new posts" so I do not miss other posts in the forum that are not MOC happenings. I cannot remember how to do it.
    @gonewiththewind Cheryl, maybe it was you who explained it to me?

    You can edit your first post to put your day 1 in there. Then edit your first reply tomorrow with your day 2 & then you'll be right on track! I know Julie does check threads for this exact issue at the end because it's common. But since it's just the 1st day you definitely can fix easily before things continue. Happy Scrapping!!!

    Do you have to finish each page the day the challenge is posted, or can you let's say, finish challenge 1 and challenge 2 on day 3 and post it on day 4 ?

    You are exactly right! They do not have to be completed on the day they are posted, they just have to all be completed by February 2, 2022, at 11:59 pm Eastern.

    I see you edited your first post to include Day One's layout, so I removed post two for you to be able to reply to your thread and post Day Two's layout. :) You're ready to go for tomorrow!
