Do you like having a Creative Challenge as a paper crafting stimulus? I know I do. I love to have an idea to stretch me and keep me trying new things.
For example, I once followed a 52 week scrapping challenge. I created a journal, a page at a time, in response to a different challenge set each week by the coordinator of that challenge. That stretched my imagination and technique skills so much. I still enjoy browsing through those entries, just to remind myself of ideas I explored and may not be using as much as I could.
That's what gave me the idea to give you some PaperCraftCentral
Inspirational Ideas and come up with some ways to encourage you to craft
and play now and then.
I suggest using the challenge ideas as an excuse to get together with some friends who love papercrafting too. Do the challenges together. That way you get to hang out with friends AND craft. I call that a double win.
When you make a challenge project, I would of course love to see what you make. You can upload your entries using the form at the bottom of this page.
Now here are a couple of challenges for you:
Time to break out the inks and embossing tools:
Currently I am completely re-vamping my own craft room. It has taken a few months of planning, acquiring and putting things in place. I told about Part 1 of my makeover and have now moved on to Part 2.
It's going to take Part 3 to finish it all, but that will come about over the next month.
In the Part 1 story, I challenged you to have a look at your own craft room and change something in it, then take a before and after shot and upload them to show me how it turned out. It could be a big change or a small one.
If you are like me, I never planned to have such a big craft space, so I did no planning and it all grew haphazardly. Now I know I could have a much more efficient and fun craft room, so I have taken the plunge to re jig a lot of the space I have. It can be done! Maybe my story will help YOU to have a better crafting space.
I can't wait to see your entries Be sure to invite your friends to take part too. It's always fun to craft together, right?
When we do that, we always get to see so many other interpretations of the idea. I love that we all imagine different things for our projects.
Don't forget to share your Creative Challenge work by filling out the form below!
