Washi Workshop Blog Hop!

If you've come here for the Washi Workshop Blog Hop, then you're in the right place! If you haven't heard about the Washi Workshop, you'll definitely want to check it out!


This workshop is all about -- you guessed it -- creative ways to use washi tape.  Megan Hoeppner of Creating Keepsakes magazine is full of ideas to share for digging into your stash to make amazing new projects. She'll be joined by a gaggle of talented contributors, including Nicole Samuels, Kelly Purkey, Allison Waken, Sasha Farina, Julie Ebersole, Tina Aszmus, Lisa Truesdell, and Amy Tan.


They'll be providing brand new layouts, mini albums, cards, and other great projects.  You can get more information and sign up for this class on the Studio Calico classroom page.  At the end of this post I'll tell you how you can win a spot in this class!

I have to confess.  Up until about a week ago I was a complete "washi tape virgin".  I had never even touched the stuff!  But all changed when the lovely owner of Queen & Co. (for whom I sometimes do design work) sent me a box of her adorable new Trendy Tapes and asked me to make some cards for an upcoming trade show.  I said, "but of course!" and jumped right in.  After playing with it, I totally get the whole washi/decorative tape craze!!  This stuff is awesome!  It's perfect for an indecisive scrapper and cardmaker like me who moves things around a gazillion times before finally settling on where to put things.  You can remove and reposition it many times.  How cool is that?!?

Here are a few of the cards I made using the the Trendy Tape (aka Washi Tape):

I am now officially hooked on this sticky stuff!!!

Megan's Washi Workshop will be filled with many more ideas and lots of inspirational projects.  I get to give away a spot in this class to one lucky blog reader! To win, simply leave a comment here by next Wednesday, May 23rd.  For additional chances to win, visit the the Studio Calico Blog and the Creating Keepsakes Blog.   Then continue along the Blog Hop and leave a comment on these blogs for even more chances to win . . .
