Do you think about using fabric when creating your projects? I mostly do cards and scrapbooking. I help the ladies at church make quilts and they have been giving me their left over fabric. So I do have some to use but it was soo disorganized I didn't know what I had! So I never thought to pull it out when crafting much. The latest Make it Monday video from Papertrey ink has inspired me to sort my fabrics by color and put them where I know I can access them. Melissa shows her tricks for cutting fabric with manual dies in a wonderful video here. She challenged us to dig out some fabric too.
I am also entering this card in the Gallon/Quart/Pint Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. They discuss the rules of using certain amounts of color in your projects for an eye pleasing effect. Check out the deets here. I never realized how well this rule works until I checked out their examples and put the rules into effect myself. I used green as my gallon color (most use) then red is my quart color and yellow is my pint color (least used). The little pops of yellow really adds to the card keeping it lively! I will definitely pay more attention to this rule in the future!
