Are you struggling with a creative block?

Yesterday I shared one of the ways that I overcome creative blocks.  I thought I'd expand a bit on that again today.  Another resource is our fabulous catalogue or magazines that you may have around.  This card was CASEd from page 113 of the catalogue.  I simply changed out the greeting and the position of the button.

It's nice when you are sitting down to craft to start with something simple like copying a project you've found online or in a magazine.  This gets you back into crafting mode and helps get those creative juices flowing. But remember CASing a project doesn't necessarily mean you have to copy it exactly as is - you can modify it so that you are using product you have on hand.

Pinterest is a wonderful resource for project ideas.  I've got thousands of cards pinned if you are looking for inspiration.  I'd love for you to follow me - just look for Stamped Treasures!

I also find that regular crafting time, helps keep those juices flowing.  The more you craft, the easier it becomes and the more confident you get.  You see things differently when you are creative often.  So get out your calendar and SCHEDULE some crafting time this week.  Life gets busy but if you make time for something you love on a regular basis you'll get more enjoyment out of it!

I hope that I've given you some ideas to get over a creative road block!  Have a creative day!
