Sending Hugs

I have been in the middle of tearing apart my craft room!! Now, mind you, my craft room is 1/2 my daughters old bedroom.  The room is still a bedroom and serves as guest room when we have visitors.  I have supplies in the closet and some various storage containers throughout the room, but the bottom line is... I have way too much stuff, and it is very disorganized!!  One of my words for 2018 is lean...and I don't just mean me.  My sister's words to me in the middle of cleaning any part of my house is to "thin the herd", and I remember one crafter saying some years ago, that too much stuff and a cluttered room stiffled her creativity.  That being said, my space for creativity is a bit chaotic right now.  I have held onto things for YEARS, and am realizing that getting my space cleaned out and up is going to be amazing, but it is also going to take some real time.  
I made today's card a little bit ago...thought today would be a perfect day to show it to you!...
 I die cut the Papertrey Ink "HUGS" from washi tape.  Yes, I love washi tape!!  Of late, I especially love wide, and cool colored washi tape!  The tape I used for this card, I purchased at ACMoore, and it looks like this...
It was the perfect width to totally fit this sentiment die with one piece of tape.  I layered a couple times, and added it to a card that I had embossed Papertrey Ink diagonal stripes and a PTI coordinated sentiment to.  Here's a close up...
Such fun!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. That’s a great CAS card ! I love the idea to use washi as patterned paper ! Thanks for sharing !

  2. Great card-love the layout. I never thought to use washi tape! I have hundreds of rolls and sheets of it. FYI, I've clicked on the product links and they don't connect to PTI.

  3. Love the card. When you're all warmed up will you come do my laundry/craft room?!?

  4. Diecutting with washitapes is such a great idea - I really love it. Your card is perfect!!
    Greetings Elisabeth

  5. Clever use of washi tape...didn't even know it came in wider widths! Laughed at your description of your craft room...SAME as mine! One side is guest room, two sides craft room and one side granddaughter playroom! Somehow it does all work. And I too, have been clearing out...feels GOOD. But I need to stop buying as I clear out. That's a problem...

  6. Great card!! What a good idea to use washi tape your way. I haven't cleared out, but am trying to put things away as I use them.


I so appreciate your comments...thank you, so much, for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
