When it comes to creating projects - scrapbook pages, cards, mixed media or home décor - you generally rely on your memory for product selection.
This means, if you didn't think about it, you're not looking for it, and therefore you're probably not using it.
When you use a ScrapRack and organize with the 4-Section System, you'll SEE what you've got and use what you see.
As an example, if you were thinking, "I'll add a blue brad to this layout," and you've got your brads stored separately from everything else, you'll go to your brad container, find the blue brads and use them. But....
...if you've got all of your blue embellishments together, you'll see the brad, but also see that you've got blue buttons, glitter, or flowers that will also work on your layout.
You'll also be reminded about different techniques, just by SEEING the products.
