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!

Tic Tac Tape

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos.
Today I have a new twist on an old game.
It's quick to make and everybody loves playing,
~ Tic Tac Toe ~

The 16x16 cork board is pre-made from Michaels.
The letters are 4" chipboard.
I wrapped each letter in a different washi tape. Narrow tapes wrap a bit easier, but I was mostly concerned with variety of color and pattern so I made it work. Find these and MANY MORE patterns in the Love My Tapes Etsy store.
To be certain the tape stayed secure I laid more tape on the backs of the letters, running the opposite direction. I also painted the backs of the letters with dimensional adhesive.

Adventure lo w/ Ange

 Hello, Ange here to share this fun Friday with you.
Today I'm sharing a fall-ish looking layout that is about a camping trip my family took a couple years ago.
We had so much fun on this trip. My little guy was delighted to be out in nature enjoying the dirt and grime and new things he could get into.
I was watching him on the outskirts of our camp and taking some pictures to document "bigfoot" in the woods when he comes back to me with these pretty flowers he found.
Just for Mom.

Too sweet!
I started my layout with a kraft background then pulled out a pad of fall papers that would go perfectly with my woodsy photos.

I used the papers for a lot of layers and then used tape for accenting.

Here I used it to highlight a decorative element on my page by adding it behind the cardstock decoration.

Here I used it like stitching or staples as an element to connect one layer of papers to another.
I used the Black Roses tape to go with this layout. I really like the look of having just bits of black tape here and there to accent my layout.
You can find this tape and so many more in the store. Check it out!
Thanks for stopping by!

Party Hat Blossoms

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos.
I believe a lady always needs a party hat! 
If she makes it herself it can be as bright and flowery as she likes.
This hat was finished in just a couple hours.
~ Bloom ~
 To begin I made double sided strips of washi tape. The wide pink and the postal print I backed with black floral tape. For the pink and white washi I just used the same tape.
 The Pink flower and the Postal print flowers were made using individual loops. The tape was flexible yet solid. I stitched the ends together at the middle.
The small pink flowers are rolled ribbon roses.
There are several excellent tutorials on making ribbon roses posted on the internet. Double side your washi tape and get started making flowers!
