ScrapbookSteals.com Blog Hop - Love My Tapes

Welcome to your next stop on the March ScrapbookSteals.com Blog Hop!

I'm so happy to be a part of the hop today. I've been a regular ScrapbookSteals.com blog reader and participant in their weekly layout sketches and crafty challenges for almost 2 years now. I find tons of inspiration on their blog, and find most of my scrapbooking supplies by shopping their daily deals!

Today's steal and the subject of the blog hop is, of course, Love My Tapes washi tape. I received two beautiful tapes to work with - pink stripes and teal chevron. The two colors looked so lovely together I thought I'd make a card to showcase the colors. A couple simple strips of the washi tape, ribbons from my stash, a black sentiment and simple flower image, and there you have it:
 
Then I lined up strips of Love My Tapes washi tape on pieces of white cardstock to create my own patterned paper. Since the tape is semi transparent, I could make a nice criss-cross or woven look with the striped washi.

 Adding washi tape to cardstock like this makes it easy to punch out shapes like these tags.
 

I then dressed up the tags with more punched shapes, flower embellishments and baker's twine. These will be great to dress up gift packages or even add to a card or layout!
  
Be sure to leave a comment for me here on my blog, and on all the other participating blogs by Sunday March 3rd so you can be entered for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to ScrapbookSteals.com!
