WOYWW – Hope Card & Smart-Fab

WOYWW - Magellan & Smart-Fab

Happy What’s On Your Workspace Wednesday, dear friends! Today I am testing a craft product called Smart-Fab for an upcoming review and giveaway. Have you heard of it or used it before? If not, Smart-Fab is a non-woven fabric that’s designed to be a cross between fabric and paper. It comes in a variety of colors and can be used for countless creative projects!

WOYWW - Magellan & Smart-Fab 2

Magellan – my new Maine Coon kitten – was fascinated by the product! Every time he saw the sample rolls he came bounding into my office to play with them! I tried to take “professional” shots containing the samples only – minus the kitten – but after several attempts over the course of several days, I threw in the towel. Not even his favorite games could distract him from the lure of the Smart-Fab rolls!

Hope Card with Smart-Fab

You can read all about my experience with Smart-Fab in the formal review and giveaway – and, if you’re in the US, possibly win a sample package for yourself – but for now, I’d like to share the card I created using Smart-Fab. As you can see, it is transparent and textured – thin enough to use on a card – but also strong enough to use for sewing projects! It makes a very cool addition to one’s craft room and I look forward to playing with my samples!

By the way – Magellan was a very naughty boy this week. He is giving Mister Naughty Pants a run for his money! To get the full scoop, visit Wordless Wednesday – Trouble!

Have a wonderful week!

    Haven’t seen this product before. What is the composition? How does it take ink? Peg R #13

      Hi Peg,

      I just posted my review and giveaway so stop on by! http://www.create-with-joy.com/2014/01/smart-fab-review-giveaway.html

      If I was describing the texture, I would describe it as a thin and pourous type of woven fabric – much more flexible than normal fabric.

      I did not have the opportunity to ink, paint, or glitter it as I would have liked to have done, but I posted a video in my review that shows all of these things being done.

      The video also shows a variety of cool uses such as costume design, bulletin board designs in classrooms, stage presentations, and a variety of craft projects.

      Thanks Trisha! Hope you are having a fabulous WOYWW! Can’t wait to see what you are up to. WordPress lets me preview your posts when you link correctly and it looks like a good one!

  4. Awesome post! Love the list of art challanges!

    Looks there’s great texture to the new stuff you’re testing. Oh yes Magellan is definitely eyeing those rolls of paper! Look out or you’ll be showing us teeth and claw marks on it next week. 🙂 I made it to link up with WW today too! Happy dance. Hugs from Nan and the Girls. Happy WOYWW! #23 p.s. The girls are ga-ga over the new guy. 😉

      Nan, would you believe that I was trying to read the other night and I not only caught him trying to cut my bookmark in half WITH HIS TEETH – but then I caught him trying to bite through the lens of my reading glasses!

      I should be keeping a journal of all of his antics but seriously, I’m too busy trying to keep him out of trouble! 🙂

      So glad you joined us for WW! Isn’t Mischief-Making Magellan a charmer?

  7. Sara Jansen says:

    There will be no professional shots with a kitten in the room! LOL. I keep letting Baily, our 5 month old kitten in the Fun Room but I pretty much always have to move her out if I want to get anything done….she’s just too darn busy.
    Looking forward to reading your review.

      Sara – the review and giveaway just went live! Go check it out (and come to think about it – nothing makes a promotional piece rock more than a gorgeous pet!) 🙂

      Would love to see adorable Baily. If you have some photos, share them with us at Wordless Wednesday and leave a comment so I don’t miss your post!

  12. Julia Dunnit says:

    How fascinating..and as it’s thinner than I thought, presumably when not in a roll the colours aren’t quite so bright? Probably turn out to be very useable. Like the simple clean lines of your card.

  13. Chrissy says:

    Fabulous card …and gorgeous kitty…naughty but gorgeous.
    Thanks for sharing with us at Make it Monday..

    Luv CHRISSYxx

  23. I don’t care how great the product is or how awesome a deal you got on something when the Kitteh walks into the picture they take it all over. This Smart Fab sounds interesting. Looking forward to seeing more about it! Have a great week. Vickie aka Okienurse #111

      I know – I felt bad at first that I couldn’t get a photo with just the product but now that I see the photos – Magellan makes them!
      I really love how much he loves them too. He has the unique ability to turn EVERYTHING in our home into a toy (including us!)

  28. KT Fit Kitty says:

    Well, I came here to look at your card but I got sidetracked by your kitty photos – I love kitties!!!! Also your new product is very intriguing. Lucky you to get to play with it – I’ve not heard of it before. Now back to your card… Very nice – I really love the torn edges and the pretty flower. Thank you for joining us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Bling it Up challenge.

    I hadn’t heard of this material but it looks really cool! I wonder if our local Michael’s carries it? And your cat is adorable! Ours get in everything! Visiting from LOBS!

    This is a very sweet card : ) Thanks for playing along with us at Party Time Tuesday’s!

  31. Elizabeth says:

    I don’t think this product has hit our shops here in Scotland yet although I think I’ve seen similar fabric/paper crosses on sale. The card you’ve made using it is lovely – like the torn edges. Magellan is just too adorable. I’m still suffering from a dodgy Internet connection so taking the opportunity while I can to visit. Hope you are having a great weekend. Elizabeth x #70
