Valentine mixed media canvas

Hi Love My Tapes fans! JJ here again, this time with a mixed media canvas for Valentine's Day.

After preparing my background, I applied several designs of fabric and lace tapes in repeating stripes.  Having the self-adhesive tapes made it so easy to get everything to stay exactly where I wanted it, especially when I sealed the entire canvas with a gel medium top coat at the end.

For the dimensional hearts, I placed the fabric sheets on chipboard, then die-cut the shapes.  Sticking the fabric to the chipboard first makes sure that you will get perfect alignment - so much easier than trying to die cut them separately!

Thanks for visiting,

fabric tapes - Brooke (FT001), Sophie (FT003), Baylee (FT004), Madison (FT005), Sherbert Mini check (FT016)
lace tapes - 13mm white (LT1001), 12mm light pink (LT5020)
fabric sheets - lilac polka dot (FS017), light pink reptile (FS006)

And the Sketch Challenge winner is...

She created this pretty card!

Perfect Pair

Hi friends! It's Ashley here today to share a card with you. I'm gearing up for CHA so if you'll be there please stop by the Love My Tapes booth, #869 and I'll be there for a few hours everyday!

Here's a Valentine's Day card I made. I got a really cute mini card deck in a stocking and I thought that they would be really cute on cards. Us crafters are always thinking. ;) And what would be more perfect that Love My Tapes Red Stripe Fabric Tape to go with it? Nothing!
Have a great day, friends! Hope to see you at CHA!

Fill my heart.....

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I have a layout to share that's full of clean lines, but has quite alot of pop to it!

Using a black & white photo really lets you play with any colors you want, it's a bit freeing actually!  Then mounting everything with a little bit of black cardstock helps ground all the different colors.

Right now I am totally addicted to cutting then ends of my tapes into swallow tails.

I even added one of the vintage images from the Canvas Stickers for a touch of whimsy & fun!

Thank you for joining me today, I hope I've inspired you to have a little fun with colors!

Valentine Bear.

Hello my friends! Giovana here with a sweet card for you. Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I want to show a project I made using Red/White Polka dot Fabric Sheet Tape and your favorite dies!
These fabric tapes give your project more texture and they look really pretty :) I found out you can use it with your dies and cutting machines.

  • Choose your favorite die.
  • Measure it on top of your fabric sheet and cut a piece.
  • Adhere your fabric sheet on thin cardstock.
  • Then run it into your cutting machine like a regular piece of cardstock. You can even emboss it (look at my second picture)
  • The cute bear is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, colored it with Copic Markers.

Hope you like it.
Have a great day!


PS: Don't forget you still have time to play our Sketch Challenge, more information HERE

"It's Not a Dinosaur" layout - JJ Sobey

I created this page to help showcase that you can totally use Love My Tapes products on 'boy' pages.  See - you CAN use lace on boy pages.  Being 'chose-y' helps.  :)

I'm not a banner girl, but this just 'worked' for this layout, and it was super easy with the self-adhesive fabric tape.  Just wrap a piece around the wire, and snip.

I added a die-cut piece of fabric from the 'anchors' fabric sheet.  And the ink splats were just for fun. :)

Thanks for visiting!

Supplies :
fabric tape - blue stripe (FT020 Silverton), red stripe (FT020 Royal), Olivia (FT007), Jane (FT011), Chocolate mini-check (FT015)Mix mini-check (FT018)
lace tape - 17mm beige (LT2004)
fabric sheet - anchor on beige

A Sketch Challenge Card

Hi friends! It's Ashley here to share a creation with you today. I want to share with you my take on our current challenge here at the Love My Tapes Blog. Did you know that you can win a whole box of Love My Tapes goodies if you play along? What a great prize!! And Giovana made such a fabulous and easy to use sketch. What are you waiting for? You can view challenge details HERE.

For my card, I used the sketch as is but turned the label into a rectangle. I used the 13mm white lace tape on top of the Lemon Bar fabric tape. Super simple but lovely at the same time. This is a sketch that I will use over and over again. The sprinkling of the embellishments makes this so cute.
Have a great day and don't forget to play along with our challenge! You have until Jan 27 to link up!

Who says you can't use pink for boys?  I know it's not typical but sometimes you just have to break out of the box and use pink or flowers or bling, those typical girly products on you boy layouts!!

On this page I used some of the pink polka dot Fabric Sheet but I paired this with more boyish elements such as the gears.  Before I cut the gears I covered some chipboard with the white Newsprint Fabric Sheet, then I colored them blue & green with distress stains.

I really like pink & green together so I added a strip of the Jane Fabric Tape to the top & bottom of the layout.  I also used it to cover the hear in the title on my page.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope that next time you're creating a boy page you'll add a little pink, or a flower or maybe even some bling!!

Hello my friends!! Giovana here. Are you ready for our first challenge of the year?? I hope you are. We are so excited to present to you challenges here and I hope you can play along with us. We are starting the new year with a fun challenge, this time is a Sketch! I drew it and JJ translated it into a real one :)

Here is the sketch:

and here is my card. I flipped the sketch so my label sentiment could have a better fit.
I used White and Light Pink Lace Tape Ribbon. I overlapped the ribbons. I adhered a piece of Pink/White Polka Dot Fabric Sheet onto a piece a cardstock. Then I stamped  the hearts direct on the fabric sheet, after that I cut them out and ink all edges. I adhered them to my panel with Medium pop dots, I added some Star Dust Stickles to give it a little bit of glitter.

Now, it's your turn to play the challenge. Create a project using the sketch and add your project to the comment section so we can check it out!!!

DEADLINE: Friday, January 27th, 8:00 pm EST. The winner will be announced on January 30th.
