Kick Start

We’ve all experienced moments when we want to create something, but just can’t seem to find the inspiration and motivation to get started. In Kick Start from Online Card Classes, Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner, and other well-known papercrafting artists show you how to Kick Start your creativity.

NOTE: This class was offered some time ago. Many of the products used on card samples might not currently be available. While the techniques are still relevant, we understand the frustration of not being able to acquire the exact same supplies. Because of this, we have permanently reduced the class price.

When you find yourself stuck in an inspiration slump, where do you turn to quickly jolt your creativity back into gear?

Break down those mental blocks with Kick Start’s 20+ videos and papercrafting ideas! In this class, we’ll be covering many different topics, including…

  • Organizing inspirational pieces, ideas, and notes so you can reference them faster and easier (multiple approaches shown, both traditional and digital).
  • Breaking down inspiration into manageable project ideas.
  • Transforming an idea into a project sketch and taking it to completion.
  • Knowing what supplies are in your stash so you can make the most of putting them into creative action.
  • Organizational tips, including a peek inside some of our craft spaces!
  • Smart shopping and using your shopping as a springboard for creativity.
  • Tips and tricks for revitalizing older supplies in your stash.
  • Using challenges and “play time” to get creating.
