Welcome to Day 27 of the series, FIND your FIT! (To return to the beginning, click here.)
Today marked the start of another edition of Ali Edward’s Week in the Life™. The objective of this week is to create an album that combines photos and stories to show what your everyday life is like.
Week in the Life™ is just one example of the many ways to jumpstart your creative process, to inspire you to scrapbook, and to focus on a specific topic.
Scrapbooking challenges are another great starting point for pages. A challenge may contain a certain color scheme, a sketch, or a daily/weekly/monthly prompt.
How challenges may help
- They take away the guesswork of what to use. The limited color or supply choices provided by challenges may help you feel less overwhelmed by your products and let you be more creative with your pages.
- The prompts may inspire you to create a page, take a photo, or tell a story that you may not have told otherwise.
- By narrowing your focus to a specific topic, you may scrapbook faster or take more photos than you normally would.
- You may learn a new technique that helps to break you out of a creative rut.
So, flex your creative muscles and check out a challenge or two for inspiration:
Create a layout every day
Create your own kit
Big Picture Classes
Do you participate in challenges? If not, I encourage you take a look. You may find a fit that is exactly what you need for your creativity.
