That's the worst feeling - being stuck. We've compiled some ideas to help get you UN-stuck next time you're ready to roll.

1. Song lyrics

Got a line from a song stuck in your head? Letter it! You can pick just a few words, or a whole verse like this one.

2. Pangrams

A pangram is a phrase that contains all the letters of the alphabet. Here's one of our favorites

3. Make a Gift

Holidays and birthdays are a great time to make gifts for loved ones. Pick your friend's favorite quote or find a phrase that describes them, and create something special. 

4. Quotes

Inspirational quotes, movie quotes, book quotes... they all provide a way to show your personality while also challenging you to think about the layout, since  many quotes can be fairly long. Browse some ideas here.

5. Tools

Sometimes when we're using a new tool, we just write the name of the tool or color. Simple and literal, but fun!
