Keep yourself creatively inspired and motivated each week!

Introducing Just Cards

I am sure at one time or another, you can relate to at least one or more of these:

You sit down to create a card and find yourself just staring at the card stock hoping to be inspired. After a while, you decide that if inspiration isn't going to strike - you need to get something accomplished! So you end up re-organizing your supplies.

You feel lost. The sheer amount of stamps, patterned paper or shades of blue in your collection are starting to overwhelm you.

It seemed like such a simple idea - sit down and make a card. But the creative well has run dry. So you give up and end up searching Pinterest or YouTube for the "perfect card" to inspire you. An hour+ later, you still haven't found that perfect starting place.



Hi, I'm Ingrid Blackburn, the founder of The Creative Grove. The one thing that plagues most paper crafters including myself at one time or another is lack of creative inspiration aka mojo.

We all want to learn more and expand our creative skill set, but what do you do when you just can't seem to get started?

This course is about giving you an inspirational project to jump start your creativity. It's about having a starting point, something that will not only inspire you, but also give you step by step instruction - including color choices, techniques, and even how to fix mistakes!

How this course will help you stay creative

Weekly step-by-step video tutorials, creative tips, project specifics and close up photos

Let Me Give You A Peek Behind the Scenes

Our goal is to help you overcome the struggle with creative inspiration. Just Cards gives you something unique that you will only find here. These videos and class pages are no where else - they are your own private collection of inspirational projects to refer back to as many times as you need.

Each week you will continue to build your library by adding a new project page loaded with a detailed step by step video, creative tips, project specifics, and large close up photos to see all the tiny little details.

As your library grows each week, you will have a creative resource that you can tap into over and over again. When you have those days where inspiration is hard to come by, simply pull up your Just Cards Project Library, grab a project or sketch as your starting point and just create.


The constant struggle to have a creative edge...solved

You are not alone - all crafters struggle at some point with creative mojo. Here are just a few of the most common reasons that get in the way of your natural creative spark - I bet some of might even sound familiar to you:

  1. Life. Many people use paper crafting as an escape from day to day stress.  But sometimes life can definitely carry over and block you creatively, worst part...You don't even realize it!
  2. Your crafty environment. This one gets the best of us - although you do your best to keep your space organized and tidy, crafty goodness has definitely taken over and everything you need seems to be under some sheet of card stock! Personally, this one will stop my creativity cold in its tracks.
  3. Too many/new toys. You have all these cool new supplies or just so many, that you don't know how best to use them or worse - where to even begin. It's natural to become a collector over time, but sometimes it just becomes too much and leaves you not knowing how to or what to use!

These are just a few. I'm sure at one point or another, you've had one or more of these stifle you creatively.
