Love My Tapes + Authentique Paper = AMAZING Day Three!


Love My Tapes and Authentique Paper have been crafty this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Love My Tapes and Authentique Paper!

To finish off this amazing week, we will be sharing projects from the LMT DT on the Love My Tapes blog, and the Love My Tapes Design Team have shared additional projects with you on their blogs with a Fall Blog Hop. 
Today is the third day of project sharing!  If you missed day one or day two, be sure and check it out! 

First up is Me (Tina).  I created a layout using multiple designs of washi tape for lots of color peeking behind a die-cut shape.  By layering multiple designs of washi tape behind the little windows, you can create POPs of color, without overwhelming your layout, and you can keep the focus on your photo.
I used the 'Peaceful' collection from Authentique Paper, and the following washi tapes: 'Yellow/Red Heart', 'Wht/Teal/Red Heart', 'Light Blue Diamond', 'Yellow Diamond', 'Grey/Wht Dot', 'Red Grid Heart', 'Green Check', 'Peach/Wht Dot'.   Don't all the different colors and designs look great together?

Next up is Ashely.  Ashley is giving us a great project to put us into the Christmas/Holiday Spirit.  Instagram is so HUGE right now and Ashley embellished her Instagram frames with washi tape.  Love it! 
Ashley used the 'Festive' collection by Authentique Paper, and the 'Merry Christmas-Red' and the 'Red/Wht Dot' washi tapes by Love My Tapes.
Here's what Ashley had to say about her layout:
When I started working with the Festive collection, I decided to use some Christmas photos from my childhood. SInce the photos were older and not in the best condition, I added the black and white filter. There is a great vintage feel to the papers and stickers in this collection and it worked really well with these photos. I fussy cut the triangles for the Christmas trees and kept them very simple, to allow the pattern to be seen, and only added stitched edging and buttons at the tree tops. The Merry Christmas and Polka Dot Washi Tape from Love My Tapes cooridinated really well with the Festive collection. I added a strip around each of the "polaroid" photos for a little more interest.
Today is the final day to participate in the HOP.  If you haven’t had a chance to hop along with us, be sure to stop by all blogs for a chance to win some Love My Tape goodies.
