Magical Masking Tape Hits Scrapbooking

In January, my stamp club got to dabble in the Magical Masking Tape technique.  We made several cards with this easy as can be technique.  As I designed one of the cards, I thought it would be a great technique to carry over onto one of my scrapbook pages.  This page took no time at all!  The most time consuming part was die cutting the letters.

If you haven't tried this technique, it is something you should.  All you have to do is get some painter's tape (my preference) or masking tape and ink it up light or heavy depending on the effect you want to achieve and "stamp" it on to your paper.  I use painter's tape so it releases easy from the paper and does not risk tearing my project.  As you can see, I used this tape technique under my picture with two different colors and two different lengths of tape.

This project also uses the banner punch that you can earn for free this month with a $50 purchase.  I love this little punch.  It is a great addition to my scrapbooking supplies!  I also used new paper from our Occasions seasonal catalog that will only be available through the spring.

Here are the ingredients to recreate this page:
Stamps: None for this project...just painter's tape
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Tangerine Tango
Paper: Whisper White, Retro Fresh DSP, Pool Party
Accessories: Banner Punch, Typeset Alphabet Sizzix Dies

Keep Your Sympathy On Hand

I am sad to say over the past month I have had a great need for sympathy cards.  If I know the family is Catholic, I tend to send a Mass card, but if not, I try to make sympathy cards.  It seems like each week over the last few weeks friends and family have lost a family member.  I always have a difficult time making sympathy cards in the moment.  I always say I am going to make a few to have on hand but never do.  I encourage you to make some sympathy cards to have ready when you need them and hope you don't need to use them.  It is much easier to make them when you don't need them than when you do.

The set I used for this card, while geared towards sympathy and illness, has been a very versatile set for me.  I have used it in scrapbooking as well as everyday cards.  Unfortunately, today's card was made for its true use.  Here are the details:

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers
Ink: Pistachio Pudding, Pink Pirouette Marker
Paper: Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding, In-Color DSP
Accessories: Pink Pirouette Taffeta Ribbon, Decorative Label Punch, Sizzix Labels Collection Framelits
