Scrappy Block!

Eck! I have four projects started and just can't seem to get with it. What are you methods for breaking a block?

I sit and stare at my stuff...then my pics...then have a beer...then stare again...then have another beer...repeat until I get inspired. LOL

Actually - I have an idea book I put together from sketches, scrappy mags cut up, ads that look cool...I page through that for a while until something strikes.

LOL!!! Like the beer idea, not sure how my pages would look afterward.... but yeah I have an idea book, I'll go through it tonight Thanks!

LOL Emma!!! I don't know Joyce. When you figure it out, let me know. I've been looking at this scraplift project for how long now??? My SG sisters are going to start yelling at me soon! LOL!

Auntie Em said...

Did you have the group with all the little die cut critters? Don't think I could have come up with something on that.

Sometimes even doing a straight scrap copy gets me going so I can do other LO's.

Auntie Em said...

Well I may just lift some of ya'lls layouts then!!! LOL

UGH....I usually use a sketch or browse online scrappy blogs

Auntie Em said...

Ok, I finally got something done last night and it kinda looks familiar so I probably did a lift of all of you!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks.

i usually just look through mags or blogs to find something to straight lift. then somewhere along the way, my mind takes over on its own...

if that doesnt work, i straighten and organize my stash.... just touching things and reminding myself of stuff i tucked into far recesses of drawers will help spark inspiration.

i'm with emma. beer or wine. haha. or lots of Law and Order. haha

breathing. not stressing about it. working on something else entirely (like cleaning out the fridge. that always helps).

Auntie Em said...

Law & Order??? Hmmmm that's different. I did watch a few NCIS!

Well thanks ladies, my block is over and layouts are up, enjoy.
