Embellishing With Tapes

Happy Friday, LMT fans!  It's the weekend...finally :)  I sure hope you're planning some scrappy time this weekend!

Missy here today to share with you a fun & easy way to use your tapes for embellishing on your projects.  This is a page I created using the new Vintage Bliss line from Simple Stories.  A few of my LMT tapes coordinated with it perfectly!  I used it in a few different ways.  The teal tape I used as a border strip along the left hand side.  I also used another long strip of it above my arrows.  You can use your tape in place of patterned paper, which is what I did here.

I also used a roll of coral colored fabric tape as a border strip looks just like patterned paper that coordinates with the paper line.

The is was the most fun!  I took a roll of white lace tape and covered some paper hearts I punched out.  I tinted it pink by dabbing a small paint brush into some watered down coral colored paint, and TADA!  Pink tape!  You can do this with any color.  I LOVE the texture and dimension the tape gives!

Another angle of the teal washi & coral fabric tape together.  So easy to use!

There are so many ways to use your tapes...try and think outside the box when creating your projects.  A little bit of tape can go a along way, and those little details can make a big difference on your pages!

Thanks so much for visiting us today, and have a FABULOUS weekend!


  1. Very cute! I totally thought that pink piece of tape was patterned paper! :) Love the new paper line you used in this page too. I haven't gotten my hands on this collection yet.

  2. This is gorgeous!! I love how you changed the color of the tape with paint. Genius!!

  3. Love it! Love the colors and the whimsical look!
