My love for Decorative Tapes has returned.



Hi and Happy Wednesday!  Yesterday, I shared a new layout on the My Mind's Eye blog that shows a great way to use decorative tape to create a frame on a scrapbook layout.


I have a confession.  My love for decorate tape was starting to wane.  I have loved decorative tape for so long and have been inspired by the amazing patterns, colors, and sizes, but had felt the time had come to de-stash myself of my decorative tape collection.  I felt that feeling of defeat up until the new decorative tape appeared in the Market Street and Essentials collections.  The decorative tape in these 2 collections made me fall in love with washi all over again, and I am again obsessed with adding tape to every project.



Instead of using decorative tape for hints of color, layers, and pattern, why not make the decorative tape the star attraction?

I created a frame around my cardstock with 2 tapes.  I trimmed the corners to mimic the look of a wood frame.



Using some of my favorite chipboard, sticker, and die-cut embellishments, I layered more goodness across my page.  I even used a journal card for fun.

Tie it up with a bow!


Do you still love decorative tape?  What is your favorite use for tape?  I’d love to know.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
