What is stopping you?......

Here's what I made at the Craft Den this week. I thoroughly enjoyed the class, thanks Lynne. I can feel a few more of these being made ready for christmas!
I haven't done much crafting this Summer, I've lost my motivation. I've been very busy I suppose but I have given myself a talking to! Does anybody else do that....or am I going mad? I put my coaching head on and asked myself the question?

What is stopping you from scrapbooking?

  1. No time to be creative....

  2. Havent got the right stash.....

  3. My stash is so disorganised......

  4. Im not creative enough....

  5. I will never catch up......
Some of those answers made me chuckle, "Have n't got the right stash" lol! I dont always have the most up to date stash but I have lots of it. So last weekend I spent nearly all weekend tidying my craft room! I havent quite finish it but it's getting there. I will post some pictures of it when it is finished.

The next one that really bugged me was "Im not creative enough" I have always been creative in some way or another, right from getting my Art GCSE. I have realised I am making it too complicated, so I have gone back to basic.
My key ingredients are:

  1. Grab your favourite paper from your stash....Papermania Retro Floral

  2. Take a photo or 2 from the 300 or so waiting to be scrapped, thats 2 less then!

  3. Distress everything, all that sanding was good therapy!

  4. Take some letters from my letter/words box...Im organised now!

  5. Keep it simple, 30 mins later....DONE!

The layout looks great. I've made the jotter pad box at craft Den. Love it. Hope you get your mojo back. I think we all loose it from time to time. Hope to see you soon. Love Sandra x
