Hello! My name is Tessa Buys and I am thrilled to be designing for Love My Tapes!
I am a passionate paper crafter and tape fanatic living in Northern California with my supportive husband, three rambunctious boys and a brand new baby girl. Officially a stay-at-home mom, I teach dance and choreograph on the weekends. When I'm not scrapbooking, making cards, or creating altered art and home decor, I'm working in my Etsy shop, Precocious Paper. As you can see, I have a hard time creating without at least a touch of tape:
Many times tape is a replacement for patterned paper on my layouts. I love how easy it is to use, and the huge impact it can have.
I cannot seem to make a mini album without tape! I created this altered book with a few of my favorite washi motifs - polka dots and stripes!
Tapes are my go-to supply for card making.
My most favorite time for tape is when I am SMASH booking. I absolutely love to pull out my (eight jars of color-coded) tapes when I'm smashing memorabilia, ephemera and my photos together. In fact, every Sunday I host a series on my blog called SMASH Sunday. Feel free to join me and share in my tape addiction!
Thanks to Love My Tapes for the opportunity to be here as a designer and thank you for stopping by today!
