What do YOU have trouble with in Scrapping???

Ok, I am confessing....I STINK at card making. I think...whooo, I'll make a card...and then it all goes to somewhere in a hand basket...without a bow!

I don't know why I have such trouble with them. I love handmade cards, LOVE them....but I have trouble just figuring out what size to make them, then what am I going to put on them, etc.

Does ANYONE else have this trouble? I see all these fabulous cards by all of these wonderfully talented ladies and I am just in amazement. I think...I could do that...and then I try. Well, let's just say I am less than successful.

The card that is a couple of posts down isn't hard for me....I can do that one without even thinking about it. Easiest thing on that one is to grab a paper pack of coordinating paper and go to town. You give me a blank piece of cardstock and the mind just shuts down.....no creativity, no isnpiration, nahdah.

I did make a couple of cards tonight, one is for a birthday, so I can't post it yet. I don't know if she is out there looking! And the other one, I can't post either because it's going to around the same place the first card is. ;) They are ok, but I WANT to do better on them.

I don't know if it's that I am scared to use my good stuff on just cards instead of my pages, if the space on the card is too small (I think this is a lot of it...), or if I am just in the card challenged group and will never get off of that bus.........

Alright, I should have LOTS of goodies to post soon. I am planning on a few movies, lots of scrapping, and maybe a few naps this weekend! I think I will get caught up on all the challenges over at Scrapbook Challenges on Myspace (come visit, I tell you...it's great fun!). And then maybe work on a DT submission...I can't decide about that one......

Have a scrappy kind of day and I will catch you tomorrow or Saturday--Katrina

  2. I'm the same way with cards. They never look right to me. I've stopped trying.
