Girly Layout with Lace and Fabric Tape

Hi friends! It's Ashley here to share a project with you today.
I made this layout for my friend who was moving away. She wanted scrapbook pages as mementos of all her friends. We put our addresses on the back so she would have a way to get in touch with us. Isn't that a fun "address" book idea? I used THIS beige lace tape and THIS beige lace tape as well. I also used the Jane Fabric tape on this layout.

Have a great day everyone!

Hello girl

Hello! Giovana here with an altered project for you. For this project I used a piece of Fabric Sheet, some of the new Canvas Retro Stickers and my favorite WHite Lace Tape Ribbon!!
I covered the frame with a piece of Polka Dot Fabric Sheet, inked all edges, added White Lace Tape Ribbon and Purple Twine. I cut out the girl image and sentiment from the Canavas sheet, adhered them onto cardstock and them adhered them to the frame with heavy sticky dots. Added puple and clear rhinestones and a paper flower.

Very easy and quick project to make.

Hope you like it!
Have a great day!!

"Mini-go for 2" Layout

Hi Everyone. JJ here again with another layout, this time featuring more of the fabric sheets and fabric tapes.

The larger striped red, white & blue piece is one of our fabric sheets (FS019). I lightly frayed the edges for a little texture. It wasn't actually easy to fray - the adhesive on these sheets really keeps everything together.

Of course, an easy way to use the tapes is as a simple border strip. I added small circles die-cut from the fabric sheet.

For the green layer I wanted more than just a little strip, so lined up several pieces of the Jane green polka-dot fabric tape to make it look like a larger piece of fabric. The blue stripe fabric tape (FT020) and 12mm pink lace tape were quick ways to bring in a little of the colours in the photo. I'm particularly enamored with the lace tapes - I find myself reaching for them for most of my layouts lately.

For the circular piece here, I placed 3 strips of fabric tape on a piece of cardstock, then put it through my die cut machine.

Thanks for visiting!

Tapes for Simple Cards

Hi friends! It's Ashley here to share some projects with you today. I wanted to show how a few strips of tape is really all you need for a card. Easy peasy and it really gives a lot of pretty details to the cards.

My first card uses our awesome Fabric Tapes! I used Brown Stripe tape, Baylee tape, and Jane tape. I cut the butterfly out of one of our canvas sheets. The stamp is from Unity Stamp Co.
My second card uses dark pink, 15 MM beige, and and 17 MM beige lace tapes. The teddy bear is from a Love My Tapes canvas sheet and the sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.
Have a great day!

'Snapshot' Layout

Today I have a more masculine layout to share using the fabric tapes, lace tapes & canvas sticker sheet.

Instead of digging through my pattern paper stash for this layout I pulled out my Love My Tapes stash along with some tags I had to create my page.

I used the blue & white Striped, Jane, and Peppermint fabric tapes to make the strips, with a little piece of Lace tape peeking out the bottom for extra texture.

The colors of the tapes & lace were a little brighter than the look I was going for on my page so I pulled out my distress inks to grunge them up a bit.

This vintage camera is from one of the Canvas Sticker sheets....I just love this image and it was perfect for my page.

Have fun with your tapes, ink them up to alter the color to what you need and don't be afraid to use that lace tape on a masculine page!

Thanks for stopping by today.

First Birthday Layout

Hi friends! It's Ashley here to share a project with you. I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
I'm sharing a layout with you all today but don't get used to it! ;) I'm a card girl at heart. I made this layout of my youngest son. These are the pictures we took for his first birthday. Awwww, I miss the "babyness." I used the 19 MM white lace tape and the 21 MM white lace tape on this. I broke those up by using the Striped Fabric Tape in both red and blue. The paper is from Echo Park's Little Boy, the big letters are Thickers and the little alpha stickers are from My Little Shoebox.

Have a great day everyone!

It's never too early (or late) for a valentine!

quickly you can make a sweet card!

Here are the tapes I used...

These have adhesive on the back and I really love using them!

"Poser" layout

Hi Everyone - JJ here, and I'm kinda excited to be making my first post for Love My Tapes!

Have you ever tried using fabric tape for more than just a small accent? It's so pretty, it deserves a bit of the spotlight, I think - so I used the Brooke fabric tape to create a border around part of my layout.

I used some of the dark pink lace tape as a border strip. I love these lace tapes - so much easier to adhere than regular lace - no messing with adhesive that will show through.

The pink 'reptile' fabric sheets have such great texture:

I die-cut a flourish from the fuchsia suede fabric sheet for a pop of colour. The fabric sheets die-cut beautifully with the deep sizzix dies.

I cut wobbly circles from the brown dot/floral fabric, and roughly sewed around them, for a little contrast.

So - are you itching to get your hands on these products yet? We would love to see what you create with them. Thanks for visiting!

Fun Vintage Cards

Hi friends! This is Ashley N Newell and I'm here today to share a couple cards with you that I made with some of my very favorite Love My Tapes products! I love making vintage and shabby chic cards and it's very easy to do with our lace tapes! Also, the canvas sheets offer a lot of fun vintage images to use.

On my first card I used a TON of Love My Tapes products! The main image is from one of our Canvas Sheets. I used the 19mm white lace tape for this. The lace tapes are SOOO easy to use, they already have adhesive on the back so all you have to do is trim them and stick them on! It's a dream! I also added the Jane and Pink Striped fabric tape. I layered these things with some Webster's Pages paper and a Unity Stamp sentiment.
Here's another card using our canvas sheets for the main image and the sentiment. I also used some lace tape for this. The paper is from Echo Park Be Mine and I added a doily.
Have a great day!

Love Card

Hello my friends, Giovana here with a cute and simple card. For my project I used 2 different kind of tape ribbons: Beige Lace Ribbon and Mini Check Peppermint Ribbon.

To create the Lace Rosette I started with a piece of 1.5" Circle Cardstock, start folding the lace ribbon starting from the outside edge and keep doing it until you get the center. Add a big gold brad and you rosette is ready! (Remember that the lace already has adhesive on the back so wrapping & folding is so easy!)

I took the Mini Check Peppermint Ribbon and cut a couple of pieces about 2.5" long, snipped the sides and peel the back paper and adhere it to my piece of cardstock.

I embossed the top and bottom of the panel and add some Start Dust Stickles.  Stamp a sentiment and VOILA!!

Hope you like it!
Have a great day!

Fun with fabric tape

Today I have a layout to share with you where I used some of the fabric tapes in fun and different ways.  Before I talk about the layout I have to say that I am totally in love with the fabric tapes, the adhesive is so sticky and there are so many things you can do with them!

Here's the whole layout, I got a little messy with this one and even went a bit outside my comfort zone...but I had so much fun creating it.

I covered the top of the little tag peeking above the photo with Lemon  Bar fabric tape, when you pull the tag out it reveals a little photo of the rock my daughter is holding.

Banners are still a pretty hot trend right now and using the fabric tapes to make your own is so easy!  I made my banner using some bakers twine and Penny fabric tape.  To make your own banner just cut a number of fabric tape strips the same size, peel the backing off then fold over the bakers twine, once you have all your pieces in place use your scissors to cut the tails.  Voila you have a custom banner to match your project!

Using the same idea as the banner I made my own mini flag.  Here I wrapped the tape around a stick pin, cut the tails then using some Stazon I stamped the word sweet.  Wouldn't this be great for birthday cards or cupcake toppers?

I really wanted to make a boarder with the fabric tapes so I pulled out my On The Edge Sizzix dies and cut the Taffy fabric tape into these fun little boarders.

I even managed to get a little piece from one of the new Canvas Sticker Sheets on my layout, the piece with the stars & circles peeking under 2011.

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

Altered Items with Fabric Sheets

Hi friends! This is design team member Ashley to show you a fun project you can do with our awesome Fabric Sheets to alter a frame. Let me tell you, these fabric sheets made it SO remarkably easy to alter this picture frame. From there, you can decorate it any way you'd like for a fun project and a beautiful gift idea!
All you have to do it peel the backing off the fabric sheet and place the frame on the fabric. Then trim off the excess, you can do this with ultra sharp scissors or a craft knife. I choose to ink the edges with some Memento ink to add a bit of age to this project. The butterfly was also cut from a fabric sheet, I just ran it through my Cuttlebug twice and it was able to die cut it then I added the pearls. I added our beautiful Lace Tape and then used our Lily Fabric Tape to make the flowers adding a gem in the center and free hand cut the leaves from our Jane Fabric Tape. In the middle of the frame, I put a stamped image and sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this project! Have a great day!
