- How she first learnt about scrapbooking
- How everyone can benefit from True Scrap 3 - no matter where you live, or what sort of crafter you are
- How she keeps the creative fire burning

Gretchen's True Scrap Class: Jump Start Your Art
Do you ever go into your creative space to make a layout and hear crickets in the background because you just don’t where to start? It feels like creative paralysis – the mojo has left the building. We’ve all been there! Gretchen’s got some fun projects, creative ideas, and tips to help get you back on track when you’re just not feeling it. She’ll provide plenty of examples to help you jumpstart your creativity and get back into the scrapbooking groove in no time.
Gretchen's Tip for Maintaining Creativity
I think that the most important thing is to make sure that you’re having fun doing it and trying to do a little bit of it each week because I think when you enjoy it and the more you do, then the more you want to do. So just try to look for inspiring things and really enjoy the process. Don’t let it become a chore. Have it be a fun thing.
