September 2018 Washi Tape Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Hello and welcome to the September 2018 Washi Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have arrived here from Amy Tangerine‘s blog, then you are right on track. 

Today, I will share two layouts here on the Scrapbook blog that I created with the new washi tapes from Altenew. I got to see them in June and have been anxiously waiting for them to arrive. I love them all. There are so many possibilities to create with them and they are simply beautiful.

For my first layout, I used the Gilded Ombre and Glitter Flurries washi tapes.

@lilitheeckelsHow to:

  • Take a piece of smooth thin cardstock and stick a strip of Glitter Flurries washi tape to it.
  • Grab a cup of coffee or tea, watch your favorite series, and start fussy cutting lots of flowers.
  • Once all the flowers are cut, take a patterned paper of your choice. I went with this lovely striped patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and added a strip of Gilded Ombre to the center. I also added two tiny strips of Golden Edge washi tape.
  • Place the photo and assemble the flowers around it.
  • Add some elements floating in a diagonal line.
  • Stamp a title or use alpha stickers. I opted to use the Block Alpha Stamp and Die Set and used the same colors as the washi tape.
  • Add some stamped sentiments. The ones on my layout are from the Say Cheese Stamp set.
  • To finish off, I punched out some butterflies from the Gilded Ombre Washi Tape.

@lilitheeckelsYou can see how I created the layout in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.


@lilitheeckelsFor my second layout, I played with the Rainbow Stripes and the Painted Fantasy washi tapes. I love the bright colors and I can't help but use flowers on everything (even layouts about my boys).

@lilitheeckelsHow to:

  1. Add strips of the Rainbow Stripes washi tape to some smooth white cardstock.
  2. Cut out heart shapes using the Halftone Hearts Nesting Die Set. 
  3. Cut out flowers from the Painted Fantasy washi tape.
  4. Arrange your hearts, flowers, and photo on some white cardstock until you are happy with the design.
  5. Adhere the elements to your page. For more interest and dimension, I used foam dots. This also makes it easy to layer the flowers under the hearts.
  6. Stamp a title. I did some ombre stamping using the Gradient Sunset Stamp Set.

@lilitheeckelsI LOVED creating with the washi tapes and I've created many more projects which are on my blog.

Altenew has done it again! Another stunning release in the books!

Annalisa October 1, 2018 - 7:36 pm

This is such a small thing, but I love how the gilding in each of the washi tapes matches. There’s nothing so frustrating to me as planning on using “gold” washi tapes, only to find out that each one is a different shade of gold from brass to copper. It makes these tapes so much more effective so we can combine them on projects. And I thought my favorite was the milky way washi, but I’m really becoming enamored with the gilded ones the more we go along. Thanks for sharing!

Anne lee October 1, 2018 - 10:42 pm

The glitter flurries and painted fantasy washi tapes have stolen my heart! 🙂 I love how the purple of the Gilded Ombre tape matches the flowers!

BrendaLea Abbott October 2, 2018 - 6:43 am

It’s so hard to choose as they are all pretty awesome! But I guess the first two I would have to get is Gilded Ombre and Pixel. I love how creative you were with the washi tape. Thanks for sharing your pages as they turned out awesome!

Sarina October 2, 2018 - 1:31 pm
