Scrapbooking tip #12 is to attend a class. Attending a scrapbooking or card making class can do wonders for your creativity. There’s something about being in a room with a group of others who share the same love of crafting as you.
Attending a class allows you to create without having to put a lot of thought into what you’re doing. The projects are usually planned for you and little decision making is required. You just recreate the project. This is a great way to get your creative juices flowing. It’s also fun to hear and see how others are changing or interpreting the projects. You may learn something from what others are doing.
I often participate in classes, most of them online but occasionally, at a local scrapbook store. There’s always something to learn from others, whether it’s teaching styles, project ideas, tips, tricks or techniques.
Today I’m sharing one of the super cute layouts we’ll be creating at my Monster Bash Layout class in September. This layout uses several new Halloween themed products from the upcoming Holiday catalogue (available beginning September 4th).
