A New Strategy

I've been thinking about how to get myself motivated to actually enjoy my little card making hobby. I thought that doing sketches from places like Mojo Monday would help me, but I've found they've done the exact opposite. I've become overly critical of my cards because they just seem to be ho hum in comparison to some of the other cards that people post when they are particpating in the sketch challenges.

SO I pulled out a book that my husband had given me for Christmas last year. The Joy of Cardmaking. Its published by Paper Crafts. It has about 80 sketches in it. So I'm going to try to do a sketch a week (or maybe every second week - it really depends on whether or not my 3 year old decides she can have quite time). I'll post the sketch, and my card that I've made.

Maybe it will inspire someone else to be creative, maybe not. But I'm hoping it gets my creative juices flowing again.


  1. Yup, if you noticed I stopped doing sketches a long time ago. :)

  2. Cool idea Lexy! I should do the same. I have a load of card magazines with sketches, which I always plan to try, but I've never done even one!
