Do you ever struggle with being creative? Let me rephrase.
Do you ever struggle with thinking outside the box? Trying not to replicate what you’ve already seen in the oh-so-vast land of crafting blogs?
I try my very hardest to come up with ideas that are unique, but in all honesty – it would be naive of me to think that anything is truly original. After all, my inspiration came from somewhere, right?!
My attempts at originality often means that I avoid purchasing newly released stamp sets, since it seems like the newest sets are the ones you see the most of, making it tough to come up with something unique and different.
Even with this in mind, I caved and purchased Papertrey Ink’s newly released set called The Sweet Life…mainly because I am one of those people who will never have enough floral stamp sets!
For today’s card, I used The Sweet Life set, in a not-so-original way, but gave it a unique twist by simply adding a stamp from another company, Hero Arts. I love combining images across companies – such a good way to stretch what you’ve got!
