Have you ever felt like you'd rather see what other people can do with their crafting - than do something else on your own? Well, use their inspiration to try something of your own - imitation is the best form of flattery, so I have heard.
So, go ahead, find a page or a card you like - and re-create it! Then, do another, only change just one element - try a technique you have always wanted to, but just haven't taken the time to.
Or here is another idea - just like when you find out your mother in law is coming over, and you can clean in a snap - pretend you BFF is coming over and you just remembered it's her birthday! Now, go make her a card!!
