Do you have old products that leave you uninspired?
Of course you do! I do, too. But I’ve become really good at transforming them back into “new” products that excite me.
How doable is this?
It’s so doable that whenever I buy a new stash of scrapbook supplies I’m thrilled about, I still end up using my older products. And if I open my bag of new stuff at all over the next month, I only dip into it.
So how do you get to where you can use and love the stale stuff?
You remember your dear old Gramma who learned from the Depression how to make do with what she had…
Just think of GRAM and you’ll remember my four methods for transforming old products into awesome ones:
- G – Gather a whole bunch together for impact
- R – Re-purpose them into something you need
- A – Alter them to make them completely new
- M – Match them with something new
I’ve already made video tutorials specifically on G-Gathering and R-Repurposing. Today I released the episode for A-Altering. I share one major principle that will help you know whether an old product is worth transforming, and how to go about identifying the type of transformation it needs if it is worth it.
Also, there are a couple techniques that are simple, and a couple that are artsy.
But don’t be intimidated by the word, artsy. The results look artsy, but they’re crazy easy to do and you don’t have to have any talent. At all. You’ll just look like you do.
