Do you ever get stuck in a rut? You know, you feel like you are out of ideas and you just can't seem to make your paper and embellishments fall into place? I have been there so many times!

So today I thought I would blog about the places I find inspiration when I am in a slump. I believe inspiration is all around us. We only have to look or perhaps look at a different angle to see it. I find inspiration on product packaging, billboards, magazine advertising, both scrapbook and other magazines, restaurant menus, and yes I even found inspiration for a layout I created once from a patterned tile wall in a bathroom!

So next time you get stuck, start looking everywhere and at different angles and in new ways. You are bound to find inspiration that will get you going again. And remember, there are plenty of Paper Crafting magazines and idea books out there to help you as well!

I've been researching inspiration for a blog series I'm finishing up tomrrow ... and I loved your tip for pulling out of a rut! I believe strongly in paradigm shifts and yours is sound advice for much more than scrapbooking but mental roadblocks in any endeavor! I appreciate the post!
