{Love My Tapes} March Blog Hop



Welcome to the Scrapbook Steals March Blog Hop!  I really enjoy working with Scrapbook Steals because their blog is just chock full of inspiration, tutorials,customer service, wonderfully supportive online community and of course their STEALS!!

This blog hop is going to blow you away with amazing projects created using ... are you ready ... Love My Tapes washi tape.  Seriously, if you have not tried their washi, then what are you waiting for?  Hop on over to Scrapbook Steals and grab some for yourself.

For this hop, I created the following projects using Love My Tapes washi tape.  I really hope that you find the projects easy, fun and something that you can create easily.


First, I created a "things to do!" clipboard.  In order to make this, I covered a clipboard with kraft paper and then went to work on adhering the black and white chevron washi tape.  To top it off, raspberry colored Thickers to add a bit of color.


I love journals - they are incredibly easy to decorate and make great gifts for most anyone.  This journal is a composition notebook that was covered with some pretty patterned paper from Prima Marketing.  I removed the black binding tape and added the green washi, wrapped the cover with bakery twin and then added two flowers from Webster's Pages.  The letters are also from Webster's Pages.  I also wanted to keep track of some of my favorite journal pages so I made these adorable paper clip tabs.  Simply cut a length of washi and close it around the end of the paperclip.  To get the banner look on the end, I used a 1 1/4" square punch from StampinUp!  Why have I not thought of this before???  The punch creates the perfect "v" shape at the end of the washi.



And finally, a card.  If you've been following me for a while you know that I love designing cards.


As you can see, washi tape is a very versatile product and one that should be in your arsenal of scrapping goodies.

Be sure to leave a comment on my blog, all of the designers blogs and over at the blog on Scrapbook Steals' blog in order to be entered into a drawing for a $20.00 gift card to Scrapbook Steals.  You will have until Sunday at Midnight Mountain Time to comment.  Good Luck!

Now, if you are interested in winning more scrappy goodness, then be sure to become a follower and leave a comment stating new follower/current follower and which project you could envision yourself creating.  Again, you will have until Sunday Midnight Mountain Time to comment.  Good Luck!

Well, aren't those the cutest paperclips! So smart of you! And LOVE that you covered a clipboard metal part in washi. I'd always kind of toyed with the idea altering a clipboard, but never did because didn't know what to do with the metal clip. Now I do.! Thanks and good job!

DeniseP said...

Gah! I always think of punches as one hit wonders and hate buying them (I have a few SU ones because they're great for sentiments and things that I see myself going to often) but that's such a GREAT idea for the square punch. I think that's going on my to-buy list. Thanks for the tip! Love your projects, too!
