TSR Washi Tape Challenge

Hi there!  Today, I'd like to talk washi tape.  Thanks to Tammy at The ScrapRoom, my collection of washi tape is growing each month.  I just LOVE how easy it is to add to my projects, but I find that sometimes I use it the same way over and over.  This month I challenged myself to use it in three different ways on the same layout.  Here's what I came up with.

Project Disney: Daisy Duck


This is another page in my Project Disney album.  My sweet kiddo really enjoyed collecting autographs throughout the parks.  I love how intently he watched each of them sign his book.  The first card that I want to talk about includes a scanned copy of Daisy Duck's autograph.  This is a great way to include memorabilia in your Project Life or traditional scrapbook album.  Ok, so here's the first use of the washi tape -- as a border to separate my two patterned papers.  By placing it on the lighter colored paper, you can really see the tape's pattern.  


The next card includes a sticker that I bought at my local craft store.  So far the Disney stickers that I have collected have mixed well with the ScrapRoom kits.  Awesome!  Can you spot the second way that I used washi tape?  Yep, it's one of the banner strips.  I added a piece of washi to a scrap of white cardstock, trimmed it down, and then notched the end.  SO easy, but it was just the extra bit of pattern that I needed on this card.


This last card is actually my title card.  I used the phrase that Daisy Duck used to sign my son's autograph book.  And because I just loved all the different expressions on my son's face, I cut down another one of my smaller photos to add to this card.  The washi tape was perfect for attaching the photo to the card. 


Ok, so my challenge to you is to use washi tape on a layout in THREE different ways.  When you're finished, add it to The ScrapRoom's Project Life Challenge thread in the message boards by July 30th.  I'll choose a winner to receive a pack of . . . washi tape.  Happy Scrappin'!
