Crafter's block (Part I) - overcoming creative obstacles (using 3D Studded Leather embossing folder)





Hello and welcome! Ever have one of those card making days where you run into crafter's block? Well, I have and sometimes it's hard to get over the hump. I have the beautiful Studded Leather embossing folder and I made two mats that just sat on my desk for weeks. I finally forced myself to overcome my creative block and I am happy with the results, but it did take me awhile to figure out what to do with the embossed mats. Tune in next week to see the second card made using the Studded Leather embossed mat. Whew! I was so glad to get those off of my desk and onto some cards.
