I scrapped a few pages, and then put everything away, and now I'm having a hard time getting up the energy to get it all out again. Any ideas on how to get motivated????

I bought a cricut LOL I wouldn't advise it though

I enjoy looking at galleries of layouts...some are very inspiring and make me want to try to make something similar.

Oh, I have a cricut already! lol. I just want more cartridges, but that's a purchase that can wait a while.


I should do that. I started looking through the galleries....and then had to go do something else....

I don't put most of my stuff away. As we speak, my dining room table is covered with stuff. I need to get going though since I have a lot to do. I find the online crops really help get me going, as do the challenges in the subforum. I like to go back and do the old challenges.

I get out my pictures and then go online and start looking for ideas. Then I make a trip to Hobby Lobby and get some new paper to go with my ideas. That always helps me out!

Good Luck!!!

I find crops help me out. I also like being part of a scrapbooking message board as that really helps motivate me. Perhaps you should look through your photos and find that perfect one that you just need to scrap right away. That might get you in the mood.

Yeah, I put it away so we could have dinner, because it was on our table too. I went through the challenges and it didn't help.

What has really motivated me is knowing that once Cody gets here I will have a ton of pics that will need to be scrapped. I don't like being behind 6 months, a year or even a week when it comes to getting pages done. I don't like leaving things undone and needing to go back and finish lol. I'm just lazy like that, I like to b done and have time to relax until the next photo op

Well, Erin's almost 20 months old and I have scrapped up to when she was 4 months...lol. So, I'm terminally behind I think. I have up until Easter of 2008 printed out. I just need to get started again.

Be like Nike (back in the day) and JUST DO IT!!!!

You can't be as behind as me. My oldest is 7 and I haven't even finished her 1st year album yet!

Good luck and I hope you get the energy to get back into things again.

I wish I had the answer, but i'm right there with ya. I keep all my stuff out in my office, and I STILL can't get motivated to do anything. I have been telling myself for 2 weeks i'm going to scrap after Carter goes to bed.....and I still haven't done a thing.
