For every woman who is or has struggled, questioned, accomplished and triumphed…This Is Your Journey.
The shutter clicks, a flash bursts and time stops for just a moment. You’ve recorded a piece of your history for the future. How you combine that photo with others on a page, with paper, elements and journaling is your choice.
People tend to give advice all day long on what or how you should do this or that, and what they think is right for you and, of course, it’s okay to listen but in the end you are the one who creates your own pages (makes your own decisions). And if that’s not bad enough (unsolicited advice) we go out and seek advice. We may not see it as advice, we’re just getting ideas. But we see all these truly awesome pages and feel like ours just don’t quite measure up.
So while advice is nice, in the end it’s up to you to decide whether something is right for you. Whether that something is the paper, the elements or the scrapbook layout that is best for your photos.
We’re not all creative…we don’t necessarily have all the answers to all our problems or the “perfect” layout. So, truthfully sometimes “good enough” is just that, GOOD ENOUGH. The main problem, as I see it, with comparing your pages to someone else’s is that either you won’t do your own or you think yours isn’t good enough and so won’t share it.
So…my advice (note you don’t have to take it) is to check out layouts all over the place if that’s what you want, take some lessons, maybe scraplift a few, use QPs, whatever but GET IT SCRAPPED. In the end isn’t that what matters most as regards your scrapping anyway. If it has to PERFECT before you’ll do it you won’t ever do it so let perfect be a thing of the past.
I have been digital scrapping for about 4 years and paper scrapping for over 30. I got started digitally scrapping my layouts when I was lucky enough to get a copy of the professional version of Photoshop and take lessons under an awesome lady, Linda Sattgast from Scrapper’s Guide. Every day I find myself learning new things and love to share those with my readers at DigitalScrapbookLessons.com.
