After I pick out the papers I want to use for each project, I start to get the die cuts, embellishments, punches, stamps and whatever out that I am wanting to use, and simply have fun creating. This can be the funnest part of the whole process - since I get to just grab things and play, with no rhyme or reason as to WHAT I am making! Some of the funnest things I have made, have been because I have been able to just create! When you allow yourself to create and just have fun - you can truly make some of the neatest things!
After I get all the bases with papers I want to work with - I start with the set of papers that has given me the most inspiration as I have been putting papers together! At times, the papers that are the most unlikely to go together, ends up creating the best looking creation - or at least for me that is!!! This last set of things I have done, have been fun to do - because of the papers I have been working with and the things I have ready to simply add the adhesive to - and they are done!
Now for me - it works really well if I take a few days and create a bunch of things... I normally cut everything, punch everything - decide placement of the items...and then move on to the next thing! This just works well for me - after a few days of creating like this - I pull out my heat gun, and glue everything down! By creating a bit at a time, allows me to still get things done, and lets me do things when I have a lot of creativity!
Scraps saves you money, so save your scraps!!!
