This week the Way's to Use it Challenge was suggested by Trudee.....this week find Way's to Use FABRIC in your work. The material, sewing, stitching influence is so big in crafting right now and you know how I love to stitch so I thought that it would be a great challenge!
Now just hold on a second...I can hear some of the groans! LOL There are so many ideas I can think of that would be fun...you just need a little challenge... What about stamping on fabric, stitched fabric, fabric covered journals....What about felt, burlap, twill, denim....all fabrics with lots of possibitlies? If you really can't get past the fabric thing...what about faux linen or other faux techniques. You know what an easy-going gal I am....always want everyone to be able to play in my sandbox! So think up some fun ideas and play along. You have all week, upload as many new creations as you wish but above all, have fun! You might just find some "material" assets!
Please remember to put WT103 in your keywords section and post a link back here so that we can all see your work.
Wow! Maybe I'll get to play today. Thanks for the challenge.

Hmmmmm.....I'll be thinking about this one all day! Do I even have any scrap fabric left? Where on earth did I put it if I do? How am I gonna get it on my card??? Maybe I'll cut up one of DH's hole-y tshirts he refuses to throw out! LOL Thanks for the challenge Julia!
I'm sure there will be some fantastic cards today. Just wanted to give a hint; I ordered a package of ribbons from "Really Reasonable Ribbon" and it included some torn fabric which can be used to tie a nice bow around a card; so if you tear a thin strip of fabric it would make a neat bow. Looking forward to seeing everyone's great creations.
Here it is. Boy am I rusty. Anyway thank Julia for sending me down to my laundry/sewing room. What did I find there besides this fabric. Tons of Laundry, and fabric to sew my DD's bedroom curtains. Did that ever take the stampin wind out of my sails. Oh well, the girls don't need curtains do they! http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=14062

I use to have tons of fabric, being a quilter, but I OD on quilting and turned to stampin' and scrappin'. I couldn't afford both so I had a friend sell all my fabric and bought SU stuff. I found a scrap of this burgundy taffitia stuff. Not sure why I had it but I've used it before as ribbon.
FABRIC??? What's that - as I said in my description, that denotes sewing and we don't do that in this house!!! Anyway, here's my first - have a couple more ideas - now, what can I cut up?
Be kind and leave comments for others. If we can't encourage each other, who can we encourage?
Oh, I am soooo into this! I have so many ideas running in my head they are banging together and confusing me! I am only capable of about five thoughts at once. I can't wait to play with this one... oh, I already am!!
