I’ve been in a creative rut lately. When I sit down to make something my wheels spin as I look at the supplies in front of me. I think I an overthinking things. Sometimes instead of coming up with some grand new idea you just need to glue and go.

So that’s what I did. No preplanning or overthinking, just glue stuff down and move on. I’m calling it glue and go therapy. I made two cards in under an hour and I let myself enjoy it instead of second guessing every piece.

I pulled out this older Maggie Holmes line because it’s still one of my favorites and I have a huge stash of it. I paired it with some gold from one of the new Heidi Swapp project life kits.

A bit of this a few scraps of that later and I feel like my creative juices are flowing again. I may just need to have a weekly therapy session with myself!



And speaking of creative juices-check out the August issue of Papercraft Inspirations. I’m super thrilled to have my blog featured as Blog of the Month.

    Beautiful cards. This method has been my summer card method. I call it a cluster card. It is a great way to personalize cards. Quick, yet beautiful when you are busy juggling kids.
