Garden of Friendship

Ah...Washi tape...how do I love thee?! Yep, I'm an addict. I can't resist a cute washi tape. I love the fact that you can add it to a layout or card like ribbon without it adding much bulk. But it has many other great values. Just Pinterest it. You'll see. Here I used the tape to cover some bright purple buttons. This wood washi tape is one of my favorites since I love being outdoors. I honestly don't know the makers of many of these tapes. I recently learned of an awesome idea from Arlene P: Write on the inside of the roll who makes it or from what collection its from. You should join the Stash Challenge over on the Club Scrap Forum and share your projects using washi.

Club Scrap papers, tag, ribbon and buttons. Darice embossing folder. Unknown Washi.
 
Tear washi into two pieces if one doesn't fit.
Fold over sides and trim closely to the back.
This keeps the washi tape from bunching at the sides.
Poke holes if you want to keep the button appearance.

When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
