Some Washi Tape Cards and Storage Ideas

Hello Friends, Happy Tuesday!!! I am here to share a few more of my Washi tape cards that  I did  - and this time, with Washi tapes from Michaels...Yup!! Michaels is carrying them now. Lots of them. I just got a few designs.

The first card uses a Digi Silhouette image in the main panel that I got from Etsy. In retrospect, if I redo this card, I will make the main image a bit more smaller. The sentiment is from PTI handwritten Notes. For the second card I used the PTI Stamps - Birds of a Feather.

I now had a stash of Washi tapes and was looking for a good storage idea. I ended up getting this cropper hopper ribbon carousel to store my washi tapes.

Here are a few other links where I found some other interesting storage ideas for Washi Tapes.

Last but not the least, I wanted to share with you this ATG Gun Holder/Stand that I got from ebay - Geppetto Creations.  I got to know about it from my friend Michele.

It is very sturdy and holds the ATG gun very well and it is now so easy to find my ATG gun. Here are some pictures of it.

Adore - MME April Sketch Challenge

I love MME papers and when I saw the April sketch, I had to create a layout. These are pictures of my friend and daughter. Love their expressions in these pictures.

I used MME Lost and Found paper for the die cut paper. The leafy background is from MME Quite Contrary line. The heart paper is from MME Be Loved Line. Apart from the title and flowers everything else is MME. I loved how this layout turned out. Here is the sketch,

Berry Picking - GS107 Week 7 Sketch

Hi Friends, I am back to share a layout that I did for the GS107 sketch class (Week 7 sketch) hosted by Valerie Simon. She is so talented and I just love her sketches. I have done a few sketches, but had not taken photo and uploaded them. So doing that now.

These are pictures of my friend's son when we had gone Berry Picking Last year...I know..I am always catching up... :)) I just love his expression of concentration while he is picking the berry. And these vertical photos were just perfect for the sketch. Valerie also did a tutorial for us to do those circular accents that you see on the page. Super simple, super also used up quite a bit of paper from the stash and I love that.

MME April Challenge

My Minds Eye April Month's Challenge is "Hexagons". I used the first sketch from my GotSketch 107 Class for this Layout. These are photos of my friend and her Daughter at her Birthday. I have used an older MME Collection called Song bird for my Hexagons. This pattern pack is just beautiful and glittery. I also used some Lost and Found collection papers on this LO. Only the base Card stock is Bazzill and not MME. I also used the MME Lush Journaling tag on this LO.

Sorry the photo is a bit Skewed. I was having the hardest time photographing this layout for some reason.

Thanks for stopping by.

My First Washi Tape Card

Hi Friends, Washi Tape is the craze every where and I did not own any until now. End of last month I was visiting seattle and ended up at the Impress Rubber Stamps store in Tukwila(GASP!!!). It was soo cool. I got two washi tapes from there. But I had not still tried it on anything. Then my friend got us some Queen and Co Washi tapes. I still had not tried it on any cards. The final tip was that Target is selling Washi Tapes. I had to get some and I decided enough of hoarding and did a card with it :)) YAY....

Here is a close up of the colored image and the Washi Tape from Target.

It is kind of hard to see in the card, but I have used white over white. I put the washi tape on a white panel (3.75"x5") and then mounted that on a white card base using foam dots. The image is from PTI's Autumn Abundance stamp set. I love this stamp set. Sentiment is from the same set as well.

I made this card for the very first challenge from Oozak blog. Loved this design so much that I am using the same for PTI Swap Card hosted by Michele on SCS for the "Thinking Of You" Category.

Here is a photo of my Washi Tape Stash.

EDITED TO ADD - This card was totally inspired by NorAnne's card that you can see here.

PTI Swap card - Pink Birthday Card

We have a good group of Swappers on SCS and we normally swap PTI Cards i.e. cards made with PTI Stamps, paper etc. This time the swap is being hosted by Michele. one of the categories this time was a pink birthday card. This was as pink as I could do.

I used the Raspberry Fizz patterned papers from PTI. Inked the edges and mounted it on Dark Chocolate base. The ribbon buckle is called Tilda Buckle from Memory Box. I die cut it with Dark Chocolate Paper. The image is from PTI Tag-it's #10. Just love this birthday stamp set. I offset some of the pink with white and dark chocolate patterned paper.
