Can't Find Your "Stamping Mojo?"
So here's a topic that I am often asked when my stampers are feeling a little....lost? They've got supplies maybe sitting in a closet or bin (or maybe several bins) and the desire is there yet when it comes to actually getting something created, there is a block on a way to get started.
From time to time, even I fall into this category and I often think "what is going on? I LOVE to stamp and create!" If you've ever known a writer or been one yourself, you're familiar with "writers block" well in the stamping world, this is known as "stampers block or losing your stamping mojo".
Sooo....here we go!
My go-to idea for finding your Mojo is......JUST GET STAMPING. By this I mean, pull out a Paper Pumpkin box and start in on a kit that you glanced at but maybe didn't have time to actually stamp. Another alternative for this would be to CASE something, anything from the internet. CASE for those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, means to Copy And Share Everything. So go ahead and "borrow" someone elses layout or idea but just don't forget to give them credit.
The next suggestion I have for getting your stamping juices flowing is to join the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1441979982783482/
There is a wealth of information, pictures and suggestions there to help you on your way!
Don't forget that the Stampin' Up! Catalogs - paper and online - are AMAZING resources for pictures and layout ideas to possibly spark your thoughts into something very fun!
Now when you get some time to stamp, I dare you to try one of these things and see if you can't jump start your Stamping Mojo - I'd love to hear how it works for you!
