Oriental trading - washi tape

Hi all, happy new year!

 Hope your year is off to a good start. Today i am sharing with you
5 quick and easy cards i made with washi tape from Oriental Trading. For the first card, i used the travel washi tape set and laid the strips down on a diagonal with space on the top for the sentiment. I then, cut a piece of cardstock in tan and put strips of the green washi across it . next, i diecut the word thanks and adhered it to my 6 x6 card. After that card, i got on a roll (pun intended) lol!  and used the same idea for the other 4 cards but changing the direction of the washi and then stamping with stamps from my stash in the open areas. I just love how they came out! So simple, fun and a great way to make your own pattern paper. check out the pics below.

Fyi- to check out the awesome washi tapes i used and many more go here:

Oriental trading valentine’s day decor

Hi all,
Love is in the air ❤️ lol! I finally packed up Christmas decor and started on valentine’s day. I made my mantle so pretty with decor from Oriental trading . I just fell in love ( pun intended) with the gold and white decor! So since i had sooo much fun making over my lil mantle for Christmas i just had to keep my momentum going and do valentines day decor right after, right?! 
So to bring a pop of red in, since i had mostly white decor i used red ribbon and red tassel garland to bring the red around the mantle. On the mirror is a white washed happy valentines day plaque that i hung in the center and added a lil ribbon bow. Next is the set of white glass lanterns ( on on each side) that i added a red bow to and a glass glitter votive inside.   In the middle, i addded  really  cool white and gold X O letters. They are so pretty! To add more shimmer i added two more glittery votives and a red ribbon tied around. Lastly, i add a gold heart banner and red tassel banner to complete the look. I had a ton of fun decorating my mantle and getting it ready for valentines day! check out my pics below.

 And in case I don’t say it often, i love you all and thanks for visiting my blog! Have a great day and happy creating!
