Scrapbooking is fun and relaxing for most scrappers. Once in a while you might get a "creative block" and not be able to think of new ideas for your scrapbook pages. In order to combat this downfall you need to organize your ideas in your head or better yet on paper.
Keep a journal of creative or artistic ideas that "pop" into your head at various times during the day. Write down supplies your have on hand and make a list of supplies you need for future pages. Organize your pictures by year or by theme. Organize your supplies before you scrapbook with friends so you make sure you take everything you will need. Scrapbook organization is essential to a productive scrapbooking session. Nothing is more frustrating than to forget an essential item and not be able to finish your page layout. Make a list of the things you will need to complete the pages you want to work on.
If you are well organized in your scrapbooking adventures you will be able to relax and let your imagination go!
