Scrapping for fun...for me

I think I remember mentioning before that I decided to take a break not from scrapbooking but from too much DT responsibilities. It has always been for DT work since 2009 having 4-7 DT gigs a month, at least 20 projects.

I got so addicted with all the assignments leaving myself creating under pressure. I barely scrap for fun or for me during those years of addiction. I used my assignments to motivate and inspire myself when I scrap which is a bit wrong. Don't get me wrong, I am so thankful for all the opportunities that came my way over the years. It helped me grow as a scrapbooker and I gained a lot of friends that are very supportive but I missed scrapbooking without the pressure.

That is why this time around, I only limit myself to at least 3 DT gigs per month. I love the responsibilities and the challenges that comes with it and I don't want to let that go. I wanted to keep sharing my talent and promote the products that I love.

But I wanted more time to scrap about anything and doing whatever without the pressure of making sure that I reach a certain standard. With a much organised setup, I can discover more about my style and be more creative because there are no limits or boundaries that needs to be followed. The fun part is, I am loving what I am creating lately!!!

Here are a few layouts that I did...not for any DT assignment :)

Here I have used some leftover BasicGrey Clippings line that I got when I was on their DT. I played with paint, stamps and layering here.

For this page, I used assorted Crate Paper goodies. I always love white space layouts because they are the easiest to make.

Thanks for dropping by!

Good job on scrapping just for your own pleasure--that's the most important kind of scrapping, I think. The pages in this post are striking and cool.
