Hello Stamping Friends!

Today it’s all about Washi Tape but on a personal note, I want to wish my grandson a very Happy 1st Birthday!  From the moment he arrived one year ago today, he has brought nothing but sunshine and joy into our lives.  You can’t help but smile when he smiles back at you which is ALL. THE. TIME.  Such a happy little boy. I feel so blessed!!



Now it is time for Washi Tape!

First, I thought I would share how I store it.  Stampin’ Up! sells Washi Tape in sets so I like to keep them all together and it is so easy with a metal ring! Whether you have hooks to hang them onto or you store them in a drawer, it so much easier to choose the one you want when they’re all together.

Another trick is to use a bread “clip” at the end so that you aren’t wasting valuable crafting time trying to find the end.  (Tell your family that you’re collecting them and you’ll have a big stash of them in no time)!  I have found that both of these ideas work for me and I have Patty Bennett to thank for both tips!

The big craze these days is decorating your planner with stickers and Washi Tape.  I’ve gone back and forth with different planners in the last six months but ended up going back to my Franklin Planner.  When I retired from teaching I didn’t think I would need all the space that this type of planner provides but I do!  The Blooms pages are so pretty but I thought a little bit of Washi Tape would jazz the pages up a bit.
