Not surprisingly scrapbooking is so big these days, especially with the advent of the Internet and digital scrapbooking! Scrapbooking is in itself a “creative art” but what if you aren’t really in the mood for being creative, or you need to catch up on some scrapbooking, but you’re all out of ideas?

(besides the same designs you’ve been using for years- Yawn!)

It’s a bit frustrating coming up with creative layouts on the spot! And you accumulate more photos, with more photos overwhelming your scrapbooking projects,they shortly become “tasks” and the last thing you want is for something that is supposed to be fun and relaxing! Here is how to break the mold and to create new and exciting albums:

1 – Organize!

Please, if you have one of those desks, which only tends to collect more and more stuff, with random bits of paper, photos, and half done albums, it’s no wonder that you can’t get anywhere with new Scrapbooking Ideas. (Same goes for the computer’s hard drive- keep it clean and organized) Pick up a system of sorts and stick with it. You can organize by date, events, people, places, what works for you, just make sure it is easy to implement and it’s fun to do! If you have a busy schedule like most people today then set aside a few minutes, maybe once a week on Sunday afternoon, or whatever, to organize your newly collected scrapbooking items you’ve gathered over the week. Then, when it’s time to sit down and put it all together, it is not as overwhelming.

2 – Focus

I know it sounds weird to say that you need to focus, to scrapbook, because the word just sounds like work, and aren’t scrapbooks supposed to be fun?! Well, I found that with my scrapbooking projects (and anything else in life) it is necessary to put aside all distractions and concentrate on one thing and one thing at a time. The same goes for scrapbooking. If you planned on Saturday afternoon three to five as your “focus time” and then make sure you put aside all distractions. Let your family know that you are “temporarily unavailable” shut down your phone, computer and television (unless you enjoy it in the background while scrapping) and just get to the fun part. You will often find that once you do that and just get started, the creativity starts flowing, and before you know it is past your allotted time, and you still have scrapbooking ideas that come to you effortlessly !

3 – Always keep something useful to jot down ideas and inspiration, when it comes to you in a moment.

Creativity is something that no one can really be creative all the time, it comes in spurts, and often very random. (Mine often come back in the shower, or driving) So, to keep something around that works for you. That there is a notepad on your phone, Evernote, or just a small notebook. Just make sure it is convenient and easy to use or you can not use it!

(Just make sure you repeat the above described process and record ideas in an instant for later use with this system!) For more ideas and scrapbooking tips as well as a fun place to get together with like-minded scrappers, see my bio box below:) I hope you enjoy!
