Stop the procrastination. Stop the excuses. Stop the whining and …


Ok, I’ll elaborate. The biggest thing that has helped me to scrap more and stress less is letting go of perfection. Just sit down and scrap. Don’t feel like you have to make it perfect in one sitting. Get started and see where that takes you.

Like you, I’ll sometimes put off scrapping because I’m not feeling creative or I don’t have enough time to finish or yada yada yada. There will always be a reason not to scrap. Focus on the feelings of success, the joy of creative release and the internal warmth of properly honoring your memories.

3 more tips to make it easier

  1. Use a template
  2. Scraplift something amazing
  3. Start with a challenge

It’s like exercise or chemistry or a million other things, the hardest part is getting started. So come on now, just do it!

Psst. I have a secret. There just might be a really cute template for you tomorrow. If you’re good little scrappers.

I’ve always been ambitious and driven. I love my work, sometimes too much. I plan everything, but I can’t think of a time I actually set a specific personal goal and worked towards it.
