However, my class has never kept me consistently away from the craft room as I always have at least 1 day a week that is free enough for me to go in and be crafty. Crafter's Block! It is a horrible thing that I have been muddling through.
Here are a few things I have done to help me get over the hump:
Re-arranged my craft room
Took a break
Looked at other people's work for ideas
organized photos with papers
last but not least looked at layout design books.
The last thing is probably the most important because it will cause me to DO something.
So I thought I would take my crafter's block and share with you the six books that Jennette Lynton wrote, 2 are for card making and the other 4 are for layouts. In a rut I have found just using these for the purpose of being productive and getting back in to the flow will help me get ideas and get away from the daily hustle and bustle that probably caused my block.
|this book is filled with 2 page spread layouts, with measurements on how to replicate them. Tips/ ideas on how to spice up your layouts can also be found through out this book.|
|For what can be found in this book it is similar to wishes. However both the originals and wishes also have ideas/tips/techniques spread through out them like the scrapbook layout books which I use all these ideas for both cards and layouts.|
All of these books can currently be purchased on My Website, or contact me directly to get them. The current Idea book is the last one they will be in, so if you think these may be handy for you for a crafter's block or to help you cut down the time it takes to make a layout make sure you get them before August when the idea book changes!
Here are the item codes for each book:
