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!
