Fabric Tape Headband

Hi friends! It's Ashley here today to share a fun project with you! This is a a pretty fast craft that you can put together for all sorts of things! You can make a headband to match your outfit or you can give these away as a gift.

All I did was take a plain headband and wrap it in some Baylee Fabric Tape. This was really simple to do. It didn't take too much tape, you could probably make 5-6 headbands from one roll of tape! The flower is from Hair Doodles. I have tons of flowers from there and now I can make cute headbands to match!

Have a great day, everyone!

Creepy Coffin

Today I want to share a fun little Halloween project with you.  Next to Christmas my favorite holiday is Halloween....all that candy YUM!!  Ok it's not all about the candy, I also love to go all out with the decorations.

Here is a fun little decoration I made to add to my Halloween display.  I started by covering the lid with this leather like Fabric Sheet, the feel of this is so amazing.

Once I had the lid covered I wanted to grunge it up a bit, so I stamped using Stazon, and I also used embossing powders to make some of the images pop! 

I added a little black Lace Tape to the edges of the lid to finish it off.

To finish off the inside of the coffin I added some paper & stamps to the underside of the lid, and of course had to add a spooky little skeleton!

I hope that this project will help you think a little outside the box (no pun intended) and try different things with your Fabric Sheets & Lace Tapes!

Fabric Sheet Flower Card

Hi friends! It's Ashley here to show you a card today.
I decided to make a flower by layering hand cut circles of the FS035 fabric and the Fs034 fabric. After cutting the concentric circles, I inked the edges for a little color and then layered them. One of those most awesome thing about this flower is that it's VERY flat making it mail friendly. Most handmade flowers are hard to mail. I used Imaginisce paper, a Lawn Fawn stamp and some seam binding as well for this card.

Have a great day!

What's brewin'

Hello Love My Tapes fans! Hope you had a great weekend. Today's card is easy using a couple of my favorite products: Lace Ribbon and Fabric Sheet Tape. My card was done in no time and ready to be sent to my coffee lover friend :) The image and sentiment are from "Cool Beans" by Gina K. Designs.

  1. Make a card base form Ivory Cardstock. 5.5" x 4.25"
  2. Emboss bottom part of your front card.
  3. Adhere Dark Pink Lace Tape Ribbon.
  4. Stamp sentiment in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  5. Die-cut a piece of Leather Fabric Sheet using Square Nestabilities. Adhere it to card.
  6. Stamp image onto White CS, color it with Markers. Die-cut, emboss and stencil piece with Square Nestabilities. Add Glitter to small parts of image.
  7. Add Pink Rhinestones.

TIP: To get a nice and smooth cut, add a piece of paper at the bottom of you sandwich plate, it will take few times, when you see the paper is all die-cut that means your fabric tape is cut out too!!

Hope you like it!
Have a great day.

What to do with fabric ribbon!

I am having so much fun with Love my Tapes -
this is fabric ribbon with the adhesive already on the back!
This one is called Chloe polka dots
and it matches Ta Da's papers Goody Two Shoes collection perfectly!
The album is from Clear Scraps.
Crinkling up your ribbon makes a great accent and
because there is already adhesive on the back it makes it super easy to do!
If you haven't checked out these tapes, you should -
they have almost every color you can think of! 
Happy crafting!

Lace Tape Candle

Hi friends! It's Ashley here today to share a fun project with you. My friend Andrea from Home Sweet Creations asked me to work on some boutique packaging options for her. I wanted to share with you one of the options I came up with.
For this project, I used the LT2005 Beige Lace tape for this project. I feel like it added so much class and beauty to this simple candle. I used just a few elements to the candle and I really think it looks ready for a boutique.

Have a great day everyone!

Hello Lisa here with a little fabric sheet inspiration for the weekend!

I'm sure every scrapper, card maker or paper crafter has at least one color they shy away from, for me it's purple.  The funny thing is I really do like purple and my daughter Sami wears it quite often, so I'm not sure why I seem to hold a grudge against this color.

I pulled out one of the Fabric Sheets with purple polka dots, and knew I had the perfect photo to go with it.  Rather than digging for any more purple papers I used the Fabric Sheet instead of pattern paper!   Oh and I happen to find a piece of purple paper too. ;)  I love the added texture the Fabric Sheets bring to a layout.

Under the year I layered some of the Sophie fabric tape and Lace Tape as a backdrop.

I added couple more layers using the Jane Fabric Tape and some more Lace Tape to balance off the bottom and add some more texture.

As you can see my strip of the Jane Fabric Tape is very can rip the tapes just like you would regular fabric.  All you need to do is snip it with some scissors and rip!

I hope I've inspired you to pull out some Fabric Sheets and get creative this weekend!

Just Dance!


Hey bloggers!Rita Barakat here sharing a project  here with a fun project!
One of the things I love about "Love My Tapes" are the self adhesive lace ribbons!
They are gorgeous, there are colors to match everything and the adhesive never shows!
I used the light pink  Love my Tapes lace tape, the color is a perfect match!
Lately my baby girl has turned into a mini ballerina and this pretty light pink
is the perfect color for your tiny dancers!

Image of 1 pack lace tape - 12mm x 2M - Light Pink

I also used the Goody Two Shoes collection from Ta Da Creative Studios, 
Prima flowers, tulle, wired pearls, Momenta and American Crafts Alphas.
(The heart shape was a cardboard display form a retail store- they were
going to throw it out! My oldest salvaged it! She knew I would use it! What a good girl!)

This will be perfect for baby girls room.

I think she gets it.
