Do you love so many things in scrapbooking that you are often times overwhelmed with what to make, how to make it, what to use, and so forth? I have a hard time narrowing down how to create something as simple as a card, tag, layout, frame, and the list goes on. There are so many beautiful images, embellishments, and ideas floating around everywhere, and I love them all. One way to reduce the clutter of thoughts in your mind when you are drafting a project is to think about what you or the recipient love or will love the most about your soon to be creation.
If it is a card, what are the components that you must have? Do they have to coordinate in a certain manner? Do you have to use die cut shapes all the time? Do you want text and word art on it? Does it have to be shabby chic, vintage, steampunk, or any other preferred style? All of these are questions that should be answered before you begin your craft. These mysteries can be somewhat eliminated by using a plan or questionaire. Download the free “What I Love Scrapbook and Ephemera Checklist“. This is a list of suggestions to help solve your creative block.
If you know the theme you are using, find images, text, and shapes that compliment your design. Go on Pinterest and Google to find some images similar to what you would like to make. See what those creations are composed of. Take notes and incorporate those ideas into your next project.
I hope this small tip was helpful. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.
