Random Wednesday!

Hello Weedsters! Happy Wednesday to you all. Paula here and I was thinking about scrapping lately. See … I’ve been having this issue … not about what to scrap …. or how to scrap … just “I should scrap.”

But, I can’t seem to get my fingers to my mouse to the computer to actually scrap.

So, let’s do some brainstorming on what to do when you just don’t have the scrappin’ juices flowing.

Here are some tips:

  • Look at galleries for inspiration
  • Look at your past work
  • Browse a scrappin’ magazine or blog
  • Read quotation books (you know those books that have all sorts of cleaver quotes in them)
  • Look at your past pictures and just scrap what sticks out at you
  • Look at someone else’s scrapping books

What else can you think of to help you scrap when you just don’t feel like it?

  1. I am suffering from this at the moment. I have done all you have suggested as well as taking to my blog a little more, checking out different designers for inspiration and simply giving it a small break

  2. Clean out a closet. I am not joking. Cleaning out a closet will inspire one in a number of ways. For example: I tossed out a pair of size 2 pants (from several years ago), and they landed on a pair of 10’s…the contrast made me pick up the camera. Scrapping about why I let myself evolve into ‘chunky Nana’ has not been a priority, until this scene. Not only did creativity reignite but thoughts and planning for healthier living surfaced.
    I, also, found the stack of vintage hats from my Mother and Grandmother, which generated ideas for future scrapping. Thank you, Paula, for all the inspiration and tutorials, as they have provided me with countless hours of joy!

  3. This might seem kind of dumb, but it works for me every time: Clean your work area. When my computer desk is cleaned off and empty of clutter I feel way more inspired to create.

  4. I’m with you guys….whenever I feel stuck or stumped for anything, the only way I find to move ahead is to stop, catch up with other things in your life, a little organise, and wallah! The free space available in your head makes all the difference!

  5. Try to join a CT. Everytime the designer has a new kit out you have to scrap. This keeps your scrapengine going, it works for me, so it might work for others also…

  6. I find a template I like. Then before I know it I have a page completed. It is the only way I keep going a lot of the time. Sometimes the template is followed, other times I change it all up to fit the photos I end up wanting to use.

  7. I have been exploring for a bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this site. Reading this info So i am happy to convey that I’ve an incredibly good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most certainly will make sure to don’t forget this web site and give it a glance regularly.
