This is a plea to all of my scrapbooking friends out there. How do I get my scrapping mojo back? This is a scrapbook that I started two (hanging head in shame) years ago. Let me just say that I think scrapbooking is cool. Sheila loaned me a book that was full of examples and hints and it was so interesting to look at. What great ideas! I love all the stuff that goes with scrapping -- papers, punches, stamps, etc. etc. I'm especially enamored with the adhesive selection, like the little sticky roller (awesome). Plus I have completed one scrapbook in the past, and I must say that it turned out very well. And if you want to get really technical about it, I would put together an end-of-the-year book for each child during my preschool-teaching days. So I know what to do, I think. I have all of the stuff. Except for the "get up and do it".
The book in question will be a remembrance of our trip of a lifetime to London in 2009. While we were there, I knew that I wanted to do this, and reminded Mark and Matt to keep everything. Tube maps, ticket stubs, tour books, all the good stuff. And I took a lot of pictures. So here I am, with a nice bunch of interesting and colorful items to place in my book. When I took all of this stuff out over the weekend, I was pleased to see that I actually liked the three pages that I crafted! All I have to do now is get rid of this "scrapper's block" and get going again. But how? Am I overthinking this? Getting too far ahead of myself? Should I just concentrate on one page at a time? Is there a good way to organize all of the stuff I want to put into the book?
OK, fellow scrappers, please help me here. Any ideas, suggestions or criticisms you have will be appreciated, and I thank you in advance! When it's finished, I'll photograph it and post it here.
