Making Memories Textured Tape {C’est Bon}


I love these packages of coordinating textured tapes by Making Memories. Now you may be wondering…exactly what is this tape. After all…it can be a little difficult to see the texture in a photograph. Making Memories had a fabulous line of these darling printed fabric tapes that are so easy to use. They are adhesive backed and come in packages of four coordinating rolls of fabric tape. These little rolls are perfect for adding texture and patterned to a design quickly. I love how they are easy to use and easy to trim off the excess. You can use them just like strips of patterned paper if you wish…they addition of a woven texture being a little fun and there is no need to get out the paper trimmer and adhesive…it’s all done for you.

What can you do with them? Adhere them as stripes, adhere them right together, wrap them around a jar or altered item. You can also make tabs with them, weave them, stitch them, punch them…just have fun with them! The Making Memories Textured Tapes come in a variety of patterns and are available at your local scrapbooking store, Michael’s and on-line crafting stores.

Girl’s Night Invitation


This is a quick fun girls night invitation card design. I’ m having so much fun with this It’s a Party stamp set by Lizzie Anne Designs lately, I thought it would pair up well with these fun textured tapes for a quick design. To highlight the fun colors and texture of the tapes, I kept the cardstock a simple plain white and accented with a touch Rose Red and Close to Cocoa paper and ink. Some buttons and stitching embellish the circular sentiment and to make a fun check for the girls night…a tiny Making Memories flower brad adds to that girlie look.

Hope you enjoyed this little product review. I don’t know about you but I could use a little girl’s night right about now. Amidst a winter cold snap and a dusty renovation…some fun would be really welcome! To my American friends…enjoy your holiday tomorrow! We don’t have the day off tomorrow here in Canada so it will be work and school as normal here. If you have any textured tape and wish to share your designs with me…I’d love to see them.
