Mandala Card

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos.
Today I have a card decorated with the ancient art form of Mandalas. I used paper doilies, and Stickles, and an assortment of Love My Tapes washi for the repeating patterns.
~ Congratulations ~
 I trimmed each strip of washi length wise to fit my design.  I carefully measured and marked my paper to place the wheel and corner tape. I also laid the central strips of washi on wax paper and cut the center circle.
Check my blog Scrappin Chaos for a list of supplies as well as a Mandala tutorial.

Little Duck Lost

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos.
Over Memorial Weekend we found a duckling, alone and frantic in the middle of the road. We brought him home and after checking with the proper authorities prepared to raise him. Ducklings don't live well without siblings and this one only made it two days. This sweet baby nestled right into our hearts in that short time and it was hard to say goodbye.
~ Little Duck Lost ~
 To ease the sadness and encourage my kids to continue to do the right thing when they found a lost soul, I made them this memorial album.
 For the most part I took my color cues from my photo mats, a set of prints of Monet's work, all water themed. Love My Tapes has so many prints and shades of washi that I had no trouble embellishing the pages.
This little book has helped the kids memories fade into a sweet lesson on life and caring for others.

Discover w/ Ange

 Hey! Ange here today and I've got a fun layout for you.
This sketch from My Scraps & More was just screaming for Love My Tapes!
So I put them to work on it:

 And my layout:

I pulled out a white piece of cardstock, grabbed my tapes and got busy.

I followed the sketch with the Brick tape, but I used 2 layers side by side to make it wider. Then I added the Colorful Bold Dots tape. After getting those on I decided to go off the sketch a bit and added my third strip out on it's own.

I took the Sky or Clouds w/ Love tape and laid it out on my cutting mat. Then I used a ruler and my cutting knife to slice it the long way. I took the thin strips and added them in each square of my layout. I did beveled corners because I like the way they look. 

To finish up, add some fun embellishments.
You can find all of these tapes and many, many more in the Love My Tapes store.
Thanks for stopping by!
