I know that sometimes we all make monthly scrapping challenges, but do you do challenges like we do here??

Lately i've been challenging myself to use certain techniques in a LO (mostly folding flowers lately) and challenging myself to find ways to use my vellum. Like the monthly challenges I set parameters before I pick out my LO. Does anyone else do anything similar??

Not really but its a good idea! Often I'll print out a bunch of old challenges and techniques from the board and turn to them when I get stumped or want to try something new. Lately I've been wanting to try more new things so hopefully those print outs will be put to better use!

I am working on an "inspiration jar." I am writing down ideas as I come across them and will fold them up and put them in the jar. Then whenever I need some inspiration I can just pull out a slip of paper and do the challenge that is on it. (See if it works when I get to using it!)

I don't but I do have a tin that I altered for my inspiration and then never put anything in it. I was thinking I should get it out and put some stuff in it for when I get stuck.

Not really. I should, but I don't. My challenge usually is just to get some pages done.
