Crafts Digital Scrapbooking Rambling On

First Try at Digital Scrapbook Kit Making

I’ve always loved crafts since I was a kid. When I was in primary school I used to remember making really unique school projects. I was always playing around with scrap papers, colors..I only took it up again though after I gave birth to my daughter. Having months on maternity leave left me itching to do something, anything with my hands.

Then I decided to do scrapbooking, using mainly photos of my child. It was fun and a great way {for me} to combat post partum depression. Then just recently I started experimenting with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator mostly for my then online shop and blogging graphic needs. This hobby eventually turned into a semi-obsession with lots of friends asking me to make banners and other design work for them.

I think this is one hobby that has held my interest for a long time already. Mainly because I used to have zero knowledge about digital design that I find it so much fun to hop about and read tutorials, try out what I learn and experiment. Sometimes, I can’t believe how many hours I put in designing stuff.

Then a few months ago, I came across Artscow online personalized gifts printing services while I was looking for someone to print personalized photo books. That’s where I fell in love with the idea of designing digital scrapbook kits. And I did plunge into it..

I find myself stumbling about how to do this and that. But I love it! Coz every time I wanna make something and I don’t know how, I just feel so excited about searching for tutorials, experimenting until I get what I really want.

Anyway, here’s my first try at kit making. I called the kit Dare to Be Vivid. Simply because its also a self-dare to try out something different. I picked bold and bright colors to give me that sense of bravado when I start things. I’m happy with it because I finished it after a looong time tweaking but objectively speaking, well, I have to learn a lot. Really a lot. But this is a step forward.
