Kit Making for Artscow…

It’s been awhile since I made a kit for Artscow. I know I’ve been swamped with work and well, I’m living a life hahaha! {really!} so this has taken a back seat. Not that the interest is waning. Far from that, and besides Artcow was the one who prompted me to explore digital scrapbooking as a hobby so I’m not gonna abandon it. So far, I’ve made five free kits for them {check them out here – purplekiss}, you can easily use them to design your personalized goodies.

All of my kits in Artscow are free. How do I get rewarded with the time and effort I put in making these kits? The tricks and tips I learn as I make the kits are by far the best reward I get. I’m just a newbie at this and everytime I try making something I learn a little, and for me that is something that cannot be equated with money. And while the kit may be for free, I also put together personalized templates from my kits and everytime someone uses the templates I earn a commission. Not much but I’m quite happy that I get a little compensation.

A friend asked me, I have tons of online work, writing, blog maintenance, web design and developing new blogs, so why do I still bother doing these? I have an easy answer to this. Scrapping and graphic design, I really don’t consider as work, its a hobby. It relaxes me and I’m happy doing it. Which makes me wonder why {back when I was in college} in the world did I think that I would be happy having management jobs when at the back of my mind I knew I wanted to do something technical as well as creative? But thankfully, I discovered this passion, albeit later.

I have a few Artscow kit concepts in mind, I just need to find the time to make it. Hopefully soon. In the meantime, I’ll be blogging more about my other kits as well as the templates I made.
