Submarine Voyage

So I have been in a creative funk. Just hadn't been in the mood to create anything.
So last week I was tired of it. I got in my room and made some cards. (Check my previous card challenge post). Still wasn't feeling it, so I decided to sit in my space and see what was blocking me.

Then I saw it. All of my incompleted projects, my Project Life album that is months and months behind, all of the page kits that I haven't completed, or even have selected photos for, 31 Things album that hasn't been finished..... you get the point.

I started with the photos. I have quite a large photo order to be processed to get some kits knocked out and update my PL album.

Biggest thing, I am no longer bringing any more kits in. I have cancelled my memberships and I won't continue any until I use what I all ready have.

Then, I started on my pages in progress pile. I have pages in there that are almost 2 years old. It is time to either finish them or toss them. 

Hopefully you will see quite a few post here soon. Me tackling this stack! Half of the stack is there because I haven't journaled. I have found by going through Ali Edwards' 31 Things class, that I am having an easier time of journaling. The other half is putting a title on it. Sometimes, the "perfect" title will never come and I need to be okay with putting something that is "good enough" and call it done!

Here is the first layout I completed from my pile:

This Submarine Voyage layout is one from my friend Tami. She created this page kit with this ride in mind and it is perfect! The Cosmo Cricket paper is fantastic for this. The cool thing about this kit is that if you don't have any submarine photos, the paper is double sided and you can use non themed paper instead.

For this layout, there is a really cool paper rolling technique. The striped paper is cut into different width strips and rolled. Stacked together they make a really cool element.

Use my Sizzlit alpha Round Table to cut the title and can call this one done! 

What keeps you from having a good scrapbook mojo and how do you fix it?

  1. When my room is messy and I can't find anything, and when I have a lot of family stuff going on. Some people find scrapbooking an escape from that, but I find that it makes me really emotional and I can't create.

    Awesome photos for this page! I love that little yellow submarine. And that pic of your boy is so cute!!

    Glad you are working through the pile and this is one more finished page!
