Memory box with glitter cardstock

Hello Love My Tapes fans!

This is Maya and today I am going to share a cute project I did that was on my mind for very long time. I admit, I have a weakness for shadow boxes. Unfortunately I didn't make many of them but I am just excited to think about all the possibilities. I found a square shadow box with a slot on the top and decided that that will be the one I will finally make. After thinking through few options, I decided to make a memory box for my daughter to collect her Broadway show ticket stubs.

I used patterned paper for the back of the frame and a Shakespeare quote cut from vinyl on the glass.

I used the beautiful Love My Tapes glitter cardstock in deep red to accent the stage curtains.

The glitter cardstock adds another level of dimension  and reminds me of sparkling Broadway lights.

The first ticket stub is inside. I hope she will have many more to fill the box.

Thank you for stopping by! Hope I inspired you to reach out for this glittery goodness and make something spectacular.

We love snow - and fabric tape!

Hello!  Jaclyn here today to share a scrapbook page with you.  I've had a stack of pretty LMT fabric tapes sitting at my work space, that I've been dying to use!

Aren't they pretty?  That light blue one looks just like the print on a cozy, warm, winter sweater, to me.  As I've been admiring these pretty tapes and enjoying the newly fallen snow out my kitchen window, I was reminded that I have yet to scrapbook some of my favorite snow pictures from last year.  So, I got to work with some patterned papers, a few punches, sequins and most importantly - that cozy blue tape to put together this festive page.

Since my title runs through the center of my design, overlapping a portion of each of my four photos, I knew I would need to do something to help it stand out.  A wide vellum notched banner helps to separate the title from the background photos.  However, I found that the vellum ultimately made the title blend a little too much into the background.

A strip of coordinating cardstock, machine stitching and that pretty blue fabric tape solved my dilemma!  The tape creates a nice 'frame' on both sides of the title, to draw your eye to the text then the photos.


Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!  I hope I've inspired you to pull out your stash of fabric tapes and add them to your next project!

Jingle All The Way - Glitter Adhesive Cardstock

Hello Love My Tapes friends! Marcia here today with a home decor project you can make for gifting... or keep for yourself  (because it is so gorgeous!)  It would look perfect on a mantel.

I saw a lot of these on Pinterest last Christmas, but mostly with black vinyl lettering and a splash of red. I thought the kids would love a blue Frozen version with the help of a few Doodlebug stickers and paper.

The Love My Tapes glitter adhesive cardstock cute beautifully with my Silhouette.

so.... Now I need to decide whether to gift this beauty.... or keep it for myself.

Thanks for stopping by.

Writing with Washi

Hello! Tessa Buys here with a page from my new project, an art journal. I'm not a very painty, artsy, messy art journaler, so my designs are clean and simple. What better medium to incorporate into that aesthetic than washi tape?

For this page, I used a very pretty pink and light yellow airmail stripe from Love My Tapes. I thought the colors of the tape contrasted and complemented the flower die cuts well.

I adhered strips of tape to the page as lines for my writing - well, stamping. Because I wanted the tape lines to be a loose guide for my stamps, I knew some of the stamps would overlap the tape. I needed an ink that would stamp well on both the paper and the washi tape, so I chose my black Staz-On ink.

Do you use washi tape in your art journaling? If so, I hope you'll look to Love My Tapes for a great selection of designs. Be sure to stop by my blog today for the second page in this book, also featuring washi and stamping.

Have a great day!

Grid Style Layout- Chimp Haven

Hey guys, Katie here! Today I wanted to share this layout I created using photos from a recent trip to Chimp Haven. I used some of my favorite tapes with some project life cards to create this grid style layout.

To get the grid look, I actually used a couple of strips of washi tape to make sure my cards and photos were straight. I forgot to take a photo of it though. ;)

I used the LMT adhesive to secure all of my photos and cards.

Today I also wanted to share with you guys these 2 easy cards I created using Love My Tapes. They're really simple, but cute. I just layered the tape in strips of cover a section of the card and added lace tape for further embellishment!

Wedding Birdseed Bags with Washi

Hello Love My Tapes friends, Marcia here today. My daughter got married last weekend and I just had to share these cute little bags for keeping birdseed in. It's a tradition to throw rice at weddings as the couple departs the church, as rice is a symbol of fertility. Well somewhere along the line, we discovered that birds that eat the rice, die! So it's much more common now to throw birdseed. My sister-in-law made the cutest little bags. I tried to save one, but my hubby (thinking he was being a big help) threw it out! I had to recreate a few to show you ...

I searched through my stamps for anything wedding related and came up with this heart and bridal couple. Just stamp your image on the glassine bag, fill with some birdseed and seal shut with washi tape. This washi tape was the perfect choice :)

Thanks for stopping by.
