Mummy Halloween Card with Lace Tapes

Hello Love My Tapes friends, Marcia here today. Can you believe that Halloween is Friday already? Where did October go? I just had to make one of these Halloween mummy cards that I've seen all over Pinterest before it was too late. I thought the Love My Tapes lace tape would be perfect for making my mummy.

Here is how you can make one too...

Cut a piece of cream colored cardstock slightly smaller than the width of your card then tear it into strips. Adhere the lace tape on top of the strips.

Use a scissors to cut the lace tape edges to distress.
Dab some ink on yout craft mat and using an H2O pen, pick up the ink and paint the torn edges of cardstock and lace.

Then assemble the pieces onto your card base and add the googly eyes.

Thanks for stopping by.

Glittery stars and washi tape

Hello LMT fans, it's Jaclyn here today.  Are you caught up in your scrapbooks?  I most certainly am not!  I just got around to scrapping my youngest son's preschool graduation pictures from back in May.  I'm glad I waited though, because LMT's new 12x12 adhesive backed glitter sheets, proved to be the perfect compliment to these pages!

I used a thin metal star die to cut a variety of stars from the black glitter paper.  They die cut through the paper so very easily.  I've mentioned this on the blog before but it's worth repeating - the glitter sheets do not 'shed'!  Oftentimes I avoid working with glitter because I hate the mess, but the LMT glitter sheets solve that issue!
As a bonus, I simply peeled off the release paper, to reveal an even sticky layer of adhesive that attached so nicely to my page.  Even adhering seamlessly to my textured cardstock background!

Lots of pictures on a page, sometimes means that I don't have a whole lot of space left for embellishment.  But washi tape can be squeezed in and layered just about anywhere.

Here I've used the black and white polka dot tape to look like several of the polaroids are 'taped' to the background.

Thanks for joining me today on the blog!  We'd love to hear how you're using the 12x12 glitter sheets on your crafting projects.  We hope you'll share with us and link up your projects in the comments!

Wonder Woman Costume Accessories

Hello! Tessa here. Our family is dressing up as superheroes for Halloween this year. The baby is Wonder Woman and her onesie couldn't be cuter. Well, actually, once she was dressed I realized she was missing some pretty important accessories - Wonder Woman's crown and cuffs! Love My Tapes to the rescue with their new, amazing glitter paper!

I drew the shape of her crown onto the back of the glitter paper, then cut it out with scissors. I used hot glue to apply it to a gold glitter headband. For the star, I made an epoxy star sticker with red glitter paper.

I made the cuffs by simply trimming out rectangles of gold glitter paper and adding more stars. I secured them to her sleeves with strong tape.

If you try something similar for your baby or young child, I strongly suggest that paper accessories are only worn in the presence of adults for safety. My baby girl is teething, which means eventually, she's going to try chewing on these cuffs.

Happy Halloween!

Layout with washi tape embellishments

Hello Love My Tapes fans! This is Maya and today I will share a layout where I used three different washi tapes.

After my son's backpack reached it's end of life I cut out the piece with his name and decided to make a layout devoted to the backpack. I found 6 pictures with the backpack and arranged them in a simple grid.

I added a piece of green chevron and black chalkboard washi tapes to the corners of the layout. The title is cut with Silhouette Cameo from vinyl.

To finish the layout I added small hearts that were punched out of red chevron washi tape adhered to vellum.

That't it! Super simple and no embellishments needed!
Than you for stopping by today!

Halloween Stamp Camp

Hey everyone, Katie here! I wanted to share with you guys these projects I made recently at Stamp Camp. What's stamp camp? It's just a fun little "crop night" hosted by a friend of mine who is a Stampin' Up consultant.

All of the supplies were provided for the projects we made but I brought along  a bunch of my washi tapes to use as well. Because things are just cuter covered in washi. :) Don't you agree?

We each made a card, 2 gift bags, and a little candy jar. I used the provided supplies but I also added bits of washi tape here and there to further embellish my projects!

I love the finished look that the washi tape gives all of these projects! Are you making a lot of fun Halloween crafts?

Life is a Ride... enjoy it with Washi Tape!

Hello Love My Tapes friends! Marcia here today with an awesome layout to share with you using some Love My Tapes washi tape and the fabulous Basic Grey Second City collection from my October Clique Kit.

I love using washi tape to repeat patterns on my layout. When I saw the black circles on the houses in the pattern paper I thought this black and white polka dot washi tape would be perfect. Here are some close-ups...

A little washi in the corner says, Look at me...

I love to frame my photo with just a little washi. I even tucked some under that die cut.

Take a look at your pattern papers and try to find patterns you can repeat using some washi tape too.

Thanks for stopping by!
