These projects all started from fabric. I wanted to use this gorgeous fabric I bought to cover chipboard. First off, it went better than I expected. The fabric has a faux leather top to it, which I think made it easier to cut. I adhered the letters on the layout to the fabric and trimmed, with both my detail scissors and my Exacto knife. The flourishes I traced onto the fabric and then cut. Tons of work, but worth it! I love the way they turned out. Not the greatest layout ever, but the technique is cool.
Then I started looking for paper that would work with the fabric. In my stash, I found this awesome Jen Wilson paper and knew it would work perfectly. I loved it so much, I kept right on going and made cards with the scraps. In fact, I even have two more cards from these scraps that are almost complete.

I was also experimenting with different fabrics for backgrounds. I love the look that people achieve. Seeing them on the screen now, I like the green striped fabric. Maybe this is just an excuse to buy more fabric? Seems like a great way to alter chipboard.

Great use of patterns and colors here. Love the first card especially as well as your chipboard letters.
