Black, White and Yellow Project Life

Hey everyone, Katie here! Today I'm sharing a recent project life spread I did using photos from our road trip to Arizona.

I wanted to mainly focus on the photos, so I didn't want a lot of crazy colors (even though I do love color). I decided to just stick with black, white and the yellow and orange of the sunset and mountains in my photos.
I went through my Love My Tapes stash and grabbed some of my favorite black and white tapes as well as the light yellow fabric tape, just to add a bit of color.


I used the washi tape as borders along the sides of my project life cards and my photos. It's such an easy way to add a bit of pattern to your photos without covering them up completely.

"Faux Tape" Magnets

Hello! Tessa here with a quick and easy tape project that will help dress up your refrigerator or any other magnetic message board.

With these cute "faux tape" magnets, you get the look and feel of tape, but the ease of use of magnets.

You will need:
* magnets (I used a self-adhesive magnet roll)
* tape (any kind will do, but I used fabric)
* pinking shears (for the "torn" look at the ends of the magnets)

If you used a magnet roll like I did, you'll want to finesse the magnets a bit to make them lay flat. But once that's done, how cute are they?!

Thanks for stopping by Love My Tapes today :). Tessa

Football Party with Fabric Tape

Hello Love My Tapes friends. Marcia here today. It's definitely feeling like Fall here with the cooler temps, trees changing colors, and lots of Football! I made these fun food picks for our Sunday afternoon football party. 

I die cut several football shapes and used my brown fabric tape to cover the cardstock. I trimmed away the excess tape along the edges and added some stitching using some DMC floss. I glued another football onto the back side with a toothpick in the middle. I decorated the back side with stickers. Here is how they looked on my table....

These would look awesome in cupcakes too, don't you think?

I was having issues with the storage of my fabric tape so I want to share a tip with you today. Unlike washi tape, fabric tape does not stick to itself on the roll. It was coming all unrolled on me in my storage bin so I use paper clips to keep them rolled up nice and neat. I add these pretty ones in my scrapbook stash, but you could use regular paper clips just as well.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lace tape borders

Happy Friday!  It's Jaclyn back again today, to share with you a recent scrapbook page I created. 

The pictures I had to document this memory were plenty - therefore taking up a majority of the 12x12 page.  However, I wanted to be sure to add lots of texture and pattern to the page as well.  Because, well, half the fun of scrapbooking is adding in all the pretty products.  Am I right?! ;) Since I was limited on space, I used a variety of strips of patterned paper to create interest around and frame my block of photos.  To add in some additional texture and interest, I layered in a couple of lengths of lace tape.  The LMT tape proved to be the perfect compliment to my paper choices and I love the extra dimension it adds.

I can't end this post without noting that the cupcakes in these pictures were the BEST I've ever had!  So here's my PSA for today - if you're ever in Chicago or New York make it a priority to stop and stuff your face at Molly's Cupcakes!  And when you do, you can scrapbook the memory and reach for your stash of pretty tapes!

Monochromatic card with washi tapes

Hello Love My Tapes fans! This is Maya and today I am going to share a simple monochromatic card.

Washi tapes come in so many different patterns. I like to group them by color and use several tapes from the same color family together.  Here I picked black and grey tapes and used them to decorate a simple card.

I added few flowers in the same colors and a sentiment cut with Silhouette Cameo. I can't wait to try this design in different colors.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Party! - Fabric Tape Card

Hello Love My Tapes friends. I cannot believe that it is September already. Marcia here today. I am sharing a card I created using some festive striped fabric tape. I adhered the fabric tape all around the edges mitering the corners. I love how the fabric tape matches this die cut I had in my stash so well.

Doesn't my framed card look so festive! Try using your washi or fabric tapes to create a frame on your next card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Altered album cover with washi ape

As many of you, I accumulated an impressive stash of scrapbook supplies and products that I just had to have because one day I will need them. You know what I am talking about! So when I was looking for an album for an online class I am taking I decided it was time to shop my stash.

I found a simple 4x6 photo album that needed some alterations.

The first thing that I did was to paint the album cover with gesso. I used sponge to eliminate the brush strokes. I knew I wanted to use "everyday" chipbard sticker so I started from the bottom by layering three pieces of Love My Tapes washi tape and the chipboard sticker.
Next I finished the title using the various letter stickers from my stash and added two more small pieces of washi tape to the top of the cover.

I added gold marker to the grid letters and finished with an arrow paper clip and few pearls.

I plan on using the same tapes throughout the album to give it a nice consistent look.
Thank you for stopping by today!
